I’m happy to report that I survived the evening and I know for sure I finished one possibly, two epic Masterpieces one a huge diptych. towards the end of the evening I found myself fighting with this dragon which won’t make the cut ( this is a partial view). Going in this morning take pictures before art pick up on Friday. Hope to see you in San Francisco booth #19 at the untitled art fair next weekend https://www.instagram.com/p/BsdmWrKFgs7/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1r7zlcrxtec9m

Sometimes I lament an underpainting no longer here and then it becomes a personal challenge to make the layers above it better than the birth image. This one is going to be tough to top. All I have now is faith and persistence, as usual. #oilpainting #underpainting #burntsienna #oldhollandblue #rublevyellowochre https://www.instagram.com/p/Br8tJHZl2Lw/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=ttcb00s4uxgi

Today is the last day of my exhibition Fever Dreams at Mt San Antonio College. Even though I don’t physically have to be there, whenever I have an exhibition it feels like I’m walking around naked or like I’m wearing a giant Vegas showgirl costume with a feather head dress and rhinestones. In my daily interactions with people, I’m looking behind me thinking “Omg, can’t you see it, can’t you tell?” Even while I’m painting for my next show or working on my book (about painting, stay tuned), the air feels different around me, like it’s sparkling. Thank you @artillery_mag @laweekly @artandcakla for the wonderful coverage and @shananys @garywinstonbrewer #annabelosberg for the write ups . Thank you @fatemehburnes for curating and #michaeljwilson for the brilliant essay . The hardback catalogue featuring a brilliant essays by Michael Wilson and Shana Nys Dambrot is also available at griffithmoon.com/feverdreams. For anyone who missed it and still wants to see it, just DM me with your email address and I’ll send you an online version of the entire catalogue which includes installation shots and all the works on paper. https://www.instagram.com/p/BrETRUgFxUO/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1wmiqxji7l5kf
