Beginning on July 1, 2019 and continuing through either end of September or end of October I will be doing an “at home” self-directed artist residency.
The painting above represents the 5th painting in a new series. In order to approach galleries and art representation I need a series of at least 20 pieces.
A full and fully realized body of work is what it takes to “go pro.”
My goal is 30 paintings by October 31st.
During June I nearly finished 3 more in the series that have not been publicly shown, yet on social media or the internet. Here is the math:
30 paintings – 8 complete = 22
22 paintings / 3 months = 7+ per month
22 paintings / 4 months = 5.5 paintings per month
Each painting takes me from 40 to 80 hours to complete.
Possibly 3 to 4 months will not be enough time. Possibly I can step up production. As in any business or undertaking there is always a point at which one must fully commit to the endeavor and see what happens. See what is possible.
I am excited…
…and also a bit panicky.
I have the supplies ready to go for 27 paintings. Most are larger than 14 x 11 inches (the smallest size so far in this series).
A hint hint reminder: I have stickers available for sale—2 for $6 includes shipping. These will help offset a small portion of the supplies costs of this project. If these successfully sellout I will print a new batch from a new painting for August.
