Well, the time is quickly drawing closer for the "Art of Jazz" opening. I spent the day putting wire on the back of the paintings in preparation for hanging in the Gallery, among the many little details and last minute arrangements required. What starts as such a solitary activity in the studio will soon become quite public. As an artist, showing your work is in many ways climatic. Will visitors understand what you are trying to communicate? What insights and observations will they share with you? How will everyone respond to the show as a whole? This is the opportunity for me, as artist, to finally connect with the viewer through my work and when that work is abstract ... the possibilities are endless at times. I look forward to sharing conversations with fellow artists, lovers of art, lovers of jazz and even those new to the experience of abstract painting. Such is the language of art.
