Based on my last count, I had 45 artworks (plus a few that didn’t get resolved) made over the past 4 days during my high school lunch period by many of my art students and students who were NOT art students of mine. All of these artworks will get wrapped around a can of soup and then donated to the local Waterford, WI food pantry for those in need. The images below are my contributions.
With a new approach to a similar theme, I am developing works based on quicker movement and harsher changes in direction. Life sends me in new directions in aspects I have invested so much heart and design soul into… the work needs to express some of the humanness life offers and the harsher and contrasting directional change. These 5 works are in porgress, layers of additional planes of color are in mind… but this is process and I love sharing and thinking about the process.
While my family is the more important part of tonight’s dinner, were settling in and gathering our thoughts while we wait for the pizza. I am taking a moment to celebrate ther newest investment in my art company… Business Cards! These are from the online company Moo.com and are mini cards. Neat. Next time you run into me, ask for one. Here’s my family too. Time for tic tac toe.
I’ve been approaching my new works since just before the holidays and with a new focus on movement and colors. This is a revisit from a number of years ago, and is a welcome approach to my current paintings. The newest pieces are watercolor on paper with collage of ink jet copies of Thomas À Kempis’ work “The Imitation of Christ.” I was inspired to grab the 1400’s book off of my own bookshelf due to a book review my brother, New York author Scott Korb, wrote for “‘Christ Actually’ argues for belief through imitation” by James Carroll published in the the LA Times Jacket Copy.
Thank you Jeff Kursel and all those who helped make the 2013 Open canvas at the Pritzlaff Building in Milwaukee, WI so FUN and SUCCESSFUL! While I have NO IDEA as to the final donations from the silent auction, the people that were there were truly wonderful to talk to. Your generosity to support the Visual Arts… AWESOME. I had some incredibly wonderful conversations on Saturday night, November 23. I wish I could remember ALL your names… but THANK YOU for making my night so much fun. Especially to Kathleen Tatterson at River Edge gallery in Thiensville, WI and to Maya Scherer from Burton and Mayer, Inc. for their, as well as many others, inquiries about my work. thank you to Sophie Okin and fellow artist Scott Okin for their wonderful conversation. My friend Frank Juarez, new colleagues and future friends… this was wonderful to see you all and make new connections. The painting and making were only part of the fun. I enjoyed the conversations more than anything. But… because the finished product is fun to see… here you go. Thank you Tina Gallup for bidding on “Walking the Path of the Awakened” AND “In Our Confusion, It Can Always Be.” You and your husband are now the second biggest collector of my works. THANK YOU! Here is a view of the evening! Enjoy! Please visit the rest of my pages… Frank
The River’s Edge Art Walk is THIS FRIDAY in Waterford, WI from 5 – 9pm. 27 Artists from all around the area will be sharing their works and I am among them for the 2nd year. Please share this site and bring your friends to see some classic works as well as new works… so new they are still drying as I type,
Once again, but with a moving twist, I offer a brief glimpse of the works currently on display (and for sale) at Cafe LuLu in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. When you happen to be in the neighborhood – please stop in and take a look. My family and I had a great lunch there and this is a short video of the works. Please, stop in and check out the works, have a GREAT MEAL, and contact me when you are interested in the works. Also… mark your calendars for September 27 when the ENTIRE BAY VIEW Neighborhood opens their artistic doors to celebrate the artwork, artists, art galleries, and art spaces that Bay View, Milwaukee has to offer. I will be at Café LuLu to talk and chat… I hope to see you, and all your friends, there!
Thanks to the Inspiration of Blouin Art Info‘s Southampton Art Fair (the Third and LARGEST art fair in Southampton), and the 60 works in 60 seconds video produced to publicize the show (Link Here). I present to you 34 Works of Art in 50 seconds. The video of my works (with music presented by YouTube – Thanks) I offer a brief glimpse of the works currently on display (and for sale) at Cafe LuLu in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. If you happen to be in the neighborhood – please stop in and take a look. If you are in Southampton, do the same for their show!
Thanks to Cam Roberts at the Bay Milwaukee staple for a good meal, great times, and awesome art (mine notwithstanding, I hope) CAFE LuLu. The show went up in record time: 3 hours SOLO. I lost one work to a 12 foot drop but… I hope to have it up and in place on Wednesday afternoon. I am really pleased with the showing – perhaps you can see the groups that were made as you look things over. This exhibition of works will be on display through October so… while it is there, get in and check it out. I hope to get a lot of comments, feedback, and followers. Milwaukee Gallery Night is this Friday, but Bay View’s Gallery night is in September – enjoy the show.
Stop back for more images SOON.
