It was a rainy Saturday night in Edwardsville, Illinois. COVID-19 restrictions regarding indoor gatherings were in place. Odds were against a successful gallery show opening at Good Weather Gallery. Yet the show went on as scheduled and I am truly thankful for such a great opening.
The combination of Tom Jr. playing his music and getting to see 32 of my paintings on display in an awesome setting was fun. Having many long-time friends and supporters of my work show up made the evening even more special. Add in the fact that I sold two paintings the night of the show and another one the next morning online along with seven high gloss prints and one metallic print (all of which look quite awesome) made it an even more successful evening.
So what’s next? The show will remain on display through January 9th, 2021. Private showings of the work are available and it’s looking like I might do an artist talk sometime in mid-December as well as host a closing show on January 9th.
I’m grateful to the gallery owner, Brooke Piepert, for taking a flying leap of faith on my work. And I’m thankful that I’ve been able to continue to grow and improve as an artist. Special thanks to each one of you for following my journey.
If, by chance, you’d be interested in purchasing any of the 29 paintings that haven’t sold yet, or would like to buy any of the 32 images in the form of either a high gloss print or a semi-gloss print on metal which gives a spectacular sheen to the image, please visit Good Weather Gallery’s website or contact me direct. More info on prints will be coming soon!
In addition to creating advertising and marketing communications work by day, I also paint at night and have been fortunate to develop a world-wide following of the surrealistic art that I create. My recent show at Good Weather Gallery is yet another step on my artistic journey. If you would like to see more of my work, you can visit my online art gallery. You can also make purchases of my work of items like prints, iPhone covers and a variety of other items by visiting this site. Original artwork along with a variety of prints are available at this new site which supports local St. Louis artists and allows them to show their work at a variety of places throughout the metro area.
