Those of you who know me know that I've been a bit trifling with my art career lately. There's only so many times that I can get away with telling people that my painting is going fine, while glaring at them and daring them to ask a follow up question. I lost my Step Dad at the beginning of the year and them my Mom became very ill and had to be hospitalised for a couple of months. I had to really drop everything and help take care of her. She's fine now, and I'm ready to get going again.
So, I've been spending a lot of time (and a surprising amount -- I'm in the wrong business -- of money) on getting some of my prime pieces framed and photographed. But this weekend, I donated a piece to a local charity auction and it sold -- so that lifted my spirits.
I spend a lot of time posting on this blog about other African American artists, so I just thought I'd update you on one in particular -- me.
The piece above on the left is entitled Crown/Collar and is on display at a local TV studio.
