Drama continues.

The lab that was meant to print the photos for the upcoming show cancelled the order.
Apparently the photos by Martina and Carinna were deemed too "offensive"... so they just cancelled it. No warning or courtesy call. I had to call them after waiting for an unusually long turn around time. 
So, yeah. they are THAT good.
Now I have to find a new lab... who can do a quality job with an unusual size. Who won't chicken out with the subject matter.  It has to look good.  And i need it in time for the show. ... which is coming up really, really quick. 
Nothing worth it is ever easy...

Kaizen= constant improvement, no finish line.

Sept 7th is coming up quickly.

The photos by Carinna Wachsmann & Martina Biccheri are amazing. I think they will make an impact.

And this of course motivates me to do my best work yet.
Better more meaningful work.

Better= not only improving my painting technique. but to also strip away anything unecessary. Remove all sistracations.

Meaningful= to be more truthful, open and honest about my own world view. To remove any shields, rip open the skin and bleed on the canvas.

yeah... just that simple... and over time scar tissue builds up, so you have to go deeper... and deeper.

And for what? Maybe a few bucks. maybe some recognition. personal satisfaction?

yep. this is how i choose to spend my life.

so come to the new show. check it out.

Pittsburgh, PA Sept. 7, 2012- Most Wanted Fine Art Features International Women Artists 
Once again Most Wanted brings the most exciting talent to Penn Avenue. The new show,  “10 Minutes”, will feature the work of Carina Wachsmann and Martina Biccheri. “10 minutes”  presents the human body as a design in space but also a portion of time. The obvious intimacy of the subject matter hopes to break the viewer from their daily meditative state to look into and beyond the image to consider what can be done in 10 minutes time. A good conversation? A passionate kiss? A life altering decision? Maybe, all that, and more.
Also on view, Sam Thorp will be presenting the newest series dealing with peeling back the layers and the act of revealing ones- self.
This is an exciting opportunity to see new talent from around the world.
Wine tasting by Wilhelm Winery and music by Grand Snafu will fill out the evening.
