“Sedona Yellow Red Rocks” 8×10 oil on board

Hello my friends,

Hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas and any other holiday you are celebrating now and forever.  I have never been such a big Christmas fan in the past.  I believe it is way to commercial, but maybe this year, it’s the right thing to have considering the tough times we live in.  Yes, I may be in my little studio, my creative cave creating art but I’m usually aware of what’s going on in the world.  It’s important artists never forget their surroundings, especially their friends and family.  I’m fortunate to be in a new relationship and she’s just awsome to be around.  I’m not celebrating Christmas alone for once.

I have been working on some art lately, in case some of you out there been wondering, “Sure he talks a lot, but where the hell’s his art?”  I’m working and reworking my Sedona paintings, just organized my studio, been inquiring about possible solo shows in coffeehouses and galleries, and really just trying to get my act together.  Call it “tweaking” the artist.  Not tweeting, just tweaking.  I will also make changes soon on my website as well, and of course if you want to purchase any of my work on my gallery, I would suggest to “become a fan” on my Facebook page (see on right side of page).  You won’t get spam, you will get special deals, network with other like-minded fans, and have the pleasure of supporting “your friendly, neighborhood artist” to ensure the chance that maybe, just maybe I will have the opportunity to live my dream as a full time artist.  You can all be a part of it.  I don’t ask for things much, but right now, the best gift would be for someone new to own one of my paintings and hang it in their home.  I understand it’s a tough economy out there, but I’m optimistic that things will improve, that’s what we humans strive to do.  We love comebacks and being successful in life.  But we can’t do it alone.  That’s why I decided to have a blog, so I could make my art life more personal and public, so I’m just not another “mysterious” artist out there.

So anyway, have a Merry Christmas and let’s hope and make 2010 a much improved year over 2009.
