To continue: Here, see one of the images I showed my dealer, "Irving", who rejected it as being too "dark" and "moody" for his clients. It's one of a series I've worked on, over the past few years, based on a group of medieval caves found in Ajanta, India. As I found the religious imagery quite beautiful, I was certain others would, too. But successful Art Dealers understand marketing much better than I, and artists tend to be poor salesmen. Anyway, the lesson learned prompted the efforts to produce an image, or a group of images w/ a lighter, more "uplifting" sense about them.
(Now, as you can see, I'm still uncertain just how to design this page. I wanted to insert the "Buddah et Urn" here, but did something wrong. Since I've botched it so far, I'll add "Guanyin et Fleur" as another example of "the Lesson learned." SO, you make the adjustment and I hope I'll do better next time.)
I, probably, won't show these new things to "Irving" as they're really too "pretty" for his gallery. BUT, I'm also sending examples of my stuff to Publishers around the world for their consideration. This is where JP (son) comes in w/ his internet skills.
In the earlier BLOGS I spoke of entering a 4-month show at our PBI, our International Airport. They're having another competition there next month, and I've submitted another pc for that. If it's accepted I'll show you a picture + explanation.
It's 2:58am -- do you know where your children are??
