More New Drawings

In between the 30 new paintings I am making for my solo exhibition at GRACE (and two for a collaboration with JT Kirkland) I have made some more Ghost Music studies for my collaboration with minimalist composer Matt Sargent. The drawings are graphite on polypropylene and measure 6"x4".

Looking at Art Tonight

After some ice skating at the National Gallery of Art, dinner and a trip to Utrecht for more paint I'll be going to this exhibition tonight, mainly to see Mark Cameron Boyd's work. It should be worth checking out.

Still Here

I've been making excellent progress in the studio for my solo show at GRACE that opens May 2. I've also been overwhelmed with applications for residencies, shows, grants, etc. More soon. (I keep saying that don't I?)
