What a great printmaking set up and people in B.A.. Santi was my helper the day these photos were taken.
Buenos Aires is huge- tons of people, cars, everything. There is a heavy European design influence but with a South American twist. I had a great experience. It is even more of a 24 hour city than New York. I wish I could have taken more advantage of that. Here are a few of the first photos I took of just City sights. More to come….
Although I haven’t been posting a painting a day, I have been busy….I was awarded a 3-week artist in residency in Argentina, from Feb to March next year. I’m excited about it and a little nervous too and hope to generate lots of new stuff to post.. I think I’ll be there during the tango festival ( I don’t tango), but it did inspire this piece below.
I’ve started an inidie-gogo campaign to help with expenses if anyone is interested. Here’s the link” https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-grow-a-printmaking-community/x/8421807
Many thanks for your support over the last 2 years!
An addendum to the earlier “Crocker Steps” painting….
Loyal Followers! I am happy to present a series of 6 old baseball stadiums– not the 365 of last year!
The backstory, for those of you who are interested, is that I’ve always been a big baseball fan. My first game was at Connie Mack stadium in Philadelphia, I think around 1971. Anyway, it was the last year of that stadiums’ existence and I loved it– the iron grillwork, the red,white and blue bunting everywhere…I felt like I’d stepped back in history. The next year the stadium was demolished to make way for that monstrosity Veterans Stadium. I heard last year, I think, that the Vet was old and outdated and had to be demolished itself. Wait! I remember when that stadium was built! Does that mean I’m that old and outdated too?
Anyway, in homage to all of those old, beautiful stadiums, most of which were gone before I was born or soon after, I decided to paint a sliver of them from the fans’ point of view. I might add a few more- maybe Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field ( still in existence). I’d like to hear what you think!
I guess I can’t get away from the series thing, so why not go with it? Here’s a new one:
