The first thing to go on the wall in the new space was the painting that started it all. I still work on it from time to time, because I don't ever feel like it's done. But this particular piece from 2010 was a communication directly from my inner self saying, "I know your hands are full right now, and I know that you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, what with Charlie's upcoming craniofacial surgery, and I know that you feel that the life you planned just flew out the window... but no matter what, keep making art." So, as you can imagine, I like to keep it in my workspace as a mantra: just keep at it.
I also spent some time this week working on new coaster art for my Choice Hotel friends. You can see the whole collection HERE. These are all a part of my American Landscape Series for the Cambria Suites & Hotels franchise. The destinations from left to right are Durham NC, El Segundo, CA, Southlake, TX and McAllen TX.
