 Art Clinic Online - Saturday, May 28 from 10:30 -11:30am

Join me at 10:30 this morning at the Art Clinic Online for a discussion and Q&A about nearly everything you wanted to know about being me, and an artist, what has influenced me, etc.

About Art Clinic Online (ACO)

The Art Clinic Online community aims to create a friendly artsy environment and bring together artists who may have taken classes with us before or who are contemplating it and want to learn from one another in an online community-based setting. As such, they are not didactic sessions but a forum for the equal exchange of art ideas and art information as well as an opportunity to share art challenges and breakthroughs. 

The Stone Tower resident artists created the ACO after hearing the need for such a forum expressed by many of their students.

Volta Art Fair opened today

Pretty decent opening of the Volta Art Fair New York City at the Hauser & Wirth building in Chelsea. I sold a ton of the Bisque pieces as well as my largest drawing, a 36x36 mixed media painting from my "obsessive" series.

This piece is heading to North Friesland, Germany, which means that I have to pack it back in the van and drive it home and then crate it and ship it.

Rejected!

 They do not want me to do this portrait... cough... cough...

Dear Florencio,

Thank you for your application to create the official portrait of former Rhode Island Governor (and current U.S. Secretary of Commerce) Gina M. Raimondo. I’m sorry it has taken so long to reach a conclusion to this process, but we are happy to say that Secretary Raimondo has made her decision.

As you know, there was a significant amount of interest in this commission. Many, many excellent candidates submitted work, and any number of artists would have been an excellent choice for this important commission. While we appreciate your interest, I regret to say that you were not chosen for further consideration.

We are not prepared to announce the chosen artist until all arrangements for the commission have been concluded, but we will be happy to share the announcement with you once it has been circulated.

We wish you all the best and thank you for your interest in this project.
