In November, I held a studio sale of work from throughout my career. It was a good opportunity to clean up my studio and get organized. I met two local artists who attended and we got to talk “shop”.
I joined the South Carolina Artists this year (southcarolinaartists.com). I met more artist friends while hanging my work at the Land Bank Lofts in Columbia, SC, the Lexington Administration Building in Lexington, SC. I look forward to the upcoming show at Musician’s Supply in Columbia in January.
I continued to hang work in several shows with the Summerville Artist’s Guild, including at Toast in Summerville, SC.
Exploration of abstract, landscape, and portrait work were all focuses in 2021. I combined abstract and portrait work in one piece that was sold to a collector in Florida. I began a series of creature paintings, which will combine animals, insects, and abstract. I’m even trying to figure out how to combine music into these works.
I hope to participate in some outdoor shows in 2022. I will continue to push the envelope of creativity and discovery in art in this new, promising year.
