Before I get into this mornings post, I have a little announcement for those of you getting blog updates in your email. I plan on posting here more often; I want to expand this section of my site to include more than just updates on my artwork and events. So, if you have signed up for email updates for that reason and don’t want my semi-art related ramblings polluting your inbox (I don’t blame you), just let me know. Shoot me an email and I will move you from the blog mailing list onto a new mailing list that will only include updates on completed paintings and upcoming event announcements. For everyone else reading my blog page, expect more postings about whatever half-baked art related thoughts float through my brain.
That said, this morning I was thinking about art.
I was actually a little depressed because it occurred to me that I just don’t know any other figurative painters in Boston. I admit that I am not exactly an authority on the Boston art scene but, as far as I can tell, when it comes to young figurative artists in this city there is Bob (my upstairs studio mate) and there is me. Now, I admit that statement is pretty ridiculous sounding but I have just not been able to find evidence to the contrary.
With that in mind I would like to invite everyone who sees this to prove me wrong. Please! If you are a Boston area contemporary realist artist, speak up. If you know figurative artists working in the area, recommend their work to me. Send me an email, post a comment or even better, come by open studios next Sunday and talk shop with me.
Seriously, come prove me wrong, I would love to find more people around Boston doing this type of work. Until then, I am going to stand up and proclaim Studio 11 the figurative art capital of Boston.
