Finalist in The 2013 A.R.C. International Salon

For my first post of 2014 I promise to be a more active blogger. Not just on this blog but also on my painting blog- which you should be following. It has been a while since I posted, so in a very lazy move, I am basically just cutting and pasting a post from Verisimilitude.  Even this post about me being a ARC finalist is kind old news. I have been told blogs are done- pass'e- they are are "so 2009". Twitter is apparently not the hip new thing anymore either. Not sure what the newest online social media trend is now- maybe a site where you just post a guttural noise that expresses your feelings. Actually, that's a pretty good idea. Anyone want in invest in my new website- Gruntbook?

In a few days is the deadline for the next Art Renewal Center 2014 International Salon. I was very excited to be chosen for the second year in a row as a finalist. Last year I entered the first painting of a 3 part commission I am doing for the Demolay Internation organization in the Imaginative Realism category. I got the big glossy catalog in the mail the other day. Great to see your work featured along side so many great painters.

Here I am casually looking through the catalog on my fancy new desk (which will get a blog post of it's own soon) drinking my morning cappuccino (I know it is uncool to drink cappuccinos before 2 p.m., but that is how I roll). I will drink cappuccinos while I do all my blog posts from now on.
