I’ve been continuing on the portrait lately, as well as some colour studies, so instead of posting updates on it, I wanted to let you guys know about the show at Flower Pepper Gallery that ended on Saturday.
It was Flower Pepper Gallery’s Sixth Anniversary, so I submitted 6 paintings, and they all sold out before the weekend. Surprisingly, I had also had a dream that they had all sold, but I wasn’t sure since they didn’t sell until after the opening. I’m very proud to be a part of Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena, among other phenomenal artists who’s creativity is off the charts. The gallery owner is one of the most generous, kind people I’ve ever met, and I’m lucky to have participated in this wonderful event.
Thank you for reading!
Check out PhiladelphiaGalleryofArt.com to find some great artwork from Philadelphia artists! They also have a facebook and a twitter, although I think as just starting there aren’t too many posts right now. If you’re in Philadelphia, they’re accepting applications for representation, it’s on the contact on their website.
On an equally awesome note, check out my still life. I bet you thought I would never paint one (again.) But I did, and in fact ENJOYED it. That’s right, the mandarins stood completely still while you move your head around and talk a lot. The mandarins had very little to say, and honestly putting these on the wall will be cheaper in the long run than buying new oranges every week to replace the dried ones. I mean, these are like $5 for 3 lbs! You don’t want that kind of recurring tax on your plate, but if you buy this painting (available at the previous link) you are basically getting an ikea bowl, three everlasting oranges, and a partially opened orange included in the price. Granted, you can’t do anything with them but look, but imagine how they will brighten up your fancy foyer table, and you’ll never have to change the water.
Since I’m in school now, as well as teaching, I have been busy. Btw if you want to learn, I have proof that my teaching method is good, and in four weeks I promise your portraits will improve (unless you are David Kassan, then I can’t help you.)
Here is some inspiration (for you to go to AFTER you visit philadelphiagalleryofart.com) www.jefflegg.com It has music, but if you mute it you will find some beauty. Maybe you will be inspired to buy a still life as well.
