My show is now finished. It took a bit of time to meld the work of my co-exhibitor Sean Christopher Ward. His work is as colorful as mine so we took our time trying to match colors to each of our work.
The time taken was a smash hit. The night of the artists reception came May 12th with a small but enthusiastic group of fans. Most if not all were impressed with the layout and how well both my and Sean’s work meshed so well. In fact one friend of mine asked if we had colabrated on color choices ahead of time. Here are a few pictures of the show displays for you to judge yourself.
I did sell a piece of work during the reception. One of my smaller works that I started doing last year. I consider these as a way to work out ideas without doing a full size work. Yet they are well done small works too.
Here is a picture of Sunny Afternoon done on a 8 X 10 gallery wrapped canvas. I wrote how this piece came about in a previous blog post-Small Ideas Become Big posted December 2, 2016. I won’t bother repeating that post but here is my smiling face with that sold work.
Now that I have a show in the bag so to speak and have celebrated that goal accomplished, what is next? I will continue to enter exhibitions both local and national. I also need to get serious with getting represented by a gallery. I have a very good lead on that point but can’t comment yet. More to come once it becomes final. I also learned from this show I need to produce at least twice as much work as I displayed.
I do have plenty of ideas so I guess I need to head to the studio and get cracking. Before I do I want you to check out my fellow artists website at http://seanchristopherward.com
Off to the studio now that the dust had settled. More, much more to come.
