RYMAN SHOW 2008

This year for the Ryman I decided to try to find an artistic voice: specifically Lowbrow Art. Oh, sure, I guess that's what I've been doing all along, but not with a consistent style or message. So this year I did five pieces that worked together. Each of these is painted on deep canvases, and the painting wraps around the edges.

People really loved them... however, nobody bought one. I can only ascribe it to the fact that the audience for this type of art may be a bit younger, with cashflow problems. I heard more than once, "oh, I'd buy that if only I had enough money." As it was I thought I'd priced them fairly. Oh well.

The good thing, though, is now I have five paintings, enough to participate in a group show at a Lowbrow art gallery, where they will find the crowd that they're meant for. later this year I will start looking into possible galleries.
