Another year in the books. I hope your holidays were festive and you have a lovely new year how ever you opt to spend it. Thanks for everyone who’s subscribed to this blog/journal thing and folks who enjoyed my work. Thanks to people who’ve bought a painting or print, supported me via my online shop or sought my services or commissioned me privately. Your support is everything, and helps me continue to do what I do.
Now it’s on to the next thing.
As a footnote, I checked out the Mucha exhibit at the Dayton Art Institute. I’ve you’ve not been, it’s a fine space and they have some interesting stuff.
The photos below are ones I took, angled to catch the light of the gold or silver ink or in one case, a print that was on a silverlike silk (I gotta try that). Metallics are something I also employ in my work, and I didn’t realize the original prints had this feature.
I also had a wander through the rest of the space. Decent size museum for the city, the collection has some gems and work by artists I hadn’t seen before including some Ohio based painters, and also lesser quality portraits. I especially liked the one below, because it’s face is good but the rest is just weird. shapeless shoulders, giant hands. Hilarious. Sorry I didn’t get the artist’s name.
So yah, gave me stuff to chew on. Which is always good.
I’ll see you next year people. Meanwhile, I suggest you get back to work.
