Before finally leaving the blog alone today I wanted to put up some quick previews of the latest two pieces in the Bygone Cayman series.
With the sale of “Cayman Alarm” and “Rush Hour” last week, I wanted to make sure that the gallery was provided with replacement pieces, particularly as they have generated so much interest and some buyers have already expressed the desire to be kept informed when new paintings from the series go on sale. Anyhow, here are the latest paintings, still not varnished and barely dry.
This first painting is titled “The Shade” and will shortly be on display at the Morgan Gallery. As with the rest of the series it will also be made available as a high quality signed giclee print, details of which can be obtained directly from the gallery.
The second painting (the eighth in the series) simply named “Coolin’ Off” can also be viewed there.
I hope you will enjoy them, I’ve had a lot of fun painting this series and each one has surprised me in its own way.
I’ll talk more next time about the other paintings now residing at the gallery, plus some news about upcoming events on the island where I hope to be exhibiting more new work.
I’ve worked enough on this for now but I do have one plea before putting the laptop to bed – Grand Cayman desperately needs an art supplies store. The island is full of creative people and the only reliable store we had has gone out of business. Talking to some friends it seems they have had to resort to making trips to the USA to collect all their stuff – they pool resources and one goes on the buying trip. Ordering online is all well and good but we get truly shafted on import duties here so if there are any entrpreneurs on Grand Cayman, here is your chance! Open an arts supply store where there will be zero competition!!! I’ve run out of white paint and my Dick Blick order from Fed Ex has still not arrived……..aaarrrggghhh.
See you all next time
