- “Mountain Ranges” 8x14ft mural acrylic on stucco 2008
This obviously is a huge deal for me on different levels. I’ve visited Tucson several times since living in New Mexico, because I love the town, vibe and quirkiness. Some say it’s kinda like Albuquerque. But I actually lived there when I was just a baby, and maybe it’s had some kind of psychological effect on me ever since, and I always felt drawn to Tucson because of it. Now I get to participate in what appears to be a HUGE competition. I’ll be in a category known as the “Rising Star”, in which I’ll be competiting for a cash prize with muralists in my category. After the mural is painted, it will be auctioned off to a special charity and the artist will also receive 50% of the proceeds.
I have to take a week off from my framing job in Albuquerque, so I will hopefully sell a few artworks, and here’s where you come in to support my latest, greatest venture.
I’ll give you 20% savings off any available painting in my gallery for the month of September. Plus free shipping to anywhere in the USA.
I will be posting more art as well, so keep stopping by. I want to earn your respect by you purchasing one of my works, especially so I can afford this trip more. I will constantly post my blogs about my art life and you get to follow my progress and career. This show means a lot to me and a lot of great things can come from this.
Thanks you always for your support!
By the way, these paintings are the ones that got me in the show!
