"Light Nights" 2007 - Iceland

My streak of shows this year continues and this time I have three paintings and a drawing in the "Light Nights" festival that will be held between August 29th through September 20th in Keflavik, Iceland. Light Nights is an international art and cultural festival that will include paintings, drawings, photos, installations, music and all kinds of similar goodness. Keflavic is 35 kilometers west of Reykjavik.

You can visit their website to see the list of artists and view their works here

Among my pieces are a few from previous posts, Stargazing II, The Keystone, The Night Time Navigator, and the image above is from a few years ago called Papillon, Caulfield, Qixote And Montag. It's interesting to me that they chose my stuff because they have more of an illustrative look to them as opposed to a more fine arts look. But I'm happy and honored that they did.

Man, postage is gonna kill me...

Kurt Vonnegut

Here is a drawing that I just finished of the late, great Kurt Vonnegut. I may do this as a painting.

Tree Houses

The Arboreal Temple

These are some more of my recent paintings. I did these three for a juried exhibition on Martha's Vineyard about tree houses. I was going to wait until notification to post these, but that's still a ways off and I couldn't wait, so here they are. I'm so impatient.

Dry Clean Only

Here is another take on my Stargazing painting from the last post that was done for a charity auction fashion show. The auction will be held at the Janice Charach Epstein Gallery in West Bloomfield, Michigan on May 31st at 6:30pm and the show is called Dry Clean Only. Local artists have put their creations on ties, as well as denim shirts and they will be modelled by local community leaders. All the proceeds will go to Kids Kicking Cancer.

I've included two views of the tie (one scanned, the other by photo). I would have modelled it myself, but I wasn't feeling damn sexy today.
