"Intermezzo" New work...

36''x60'' acrylic / canvas

The latest large painting has already left the building along with "Threshold" 36x36. Both are on their way to InArt Gallery Santa Fe where summer is in high gear and sales are happening! This one replaces another 36x60 sold to a new California collector last month. Santa Fe will really be crowded for the 90th Indian Market August 20-21, so I wanted to stock the gallery with new works.

I'm starting some new 30x30 and 24x24 pieces and will be exploring some new color schemes and techniques, so keep an eye out for new releases in this mid-size/price option.

Keep investing in original art and try to stay cool in this summer heatwave.

OK Mozart Event

The art show at the recent OK Mozart Festival in Bartlesville, OK was well received by patrons and donors of the annual event with several of the eleven large pieces finding new homes. Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa curated the event and has the remaining works on sale in the gallery, including my large assemblage panel shown above in center. The full story and photos can be seen on Lovetts website and blog as well as earlier posts here on my blog.

My wife, Carolyn has been having some major health issues, so things are a bit disruptive here and art has been squeezed in when I can find time. It has been good to escape to that creative space where I can to find some sense of quiet in this storm. I was able to paint pretty hard yesterday on a new 36x60'' and will have it finished in a couple of days.

Speaking of large canvas, I sold two nice pieces at InArt Gallery, Santa Fe to new California collectors. One went to San Jose and the other to Berkeley. It always feels great when paintings find homes!
Thanks for following and supporting me! --Mark
