Another Sloth for the Road

I've been on a roll lately with the sloth paintings for Silicon Valley Open Studios next month. Some are more fun than others just because of the addorability factor and I would say that this is one of them.

Silicon Valley Open Studios

I said something earlier this year, but here is the official official announcement.

I am showing for Silicon Valley Open Studios 2016.

I have been hard at work ever since January trying to get as much new work made as possible. On top of planning a wedding and teaching and regular life stuff it has been a lot to juggle, but I'm excited to see who comes out.

There will be plenty of new sloth pieces, and a new series of drawings. You can see some of these in the WORK section of the site, and a few up in the SHOP or with our merch partner SOCIETY6, but I know there are many more pieces you can find if you come by that weekend of May 7-8.

I hope to see you there. More info HERE.

Another New for the New Year

I've done it.

As in, I've decided to participate in open studios this year. Well, the Silicon Valley Open Studios I think it officially known as.

My weekend is May 6-7, so if you need something to do...or a last minute Mother's Day gift, you can find me HERE.

I have several works from the past two years to display/sell, and I'm in the midst of several new drawings to have available. One little teaser - which you can see on the SVOS site is...

That funky giraffe is fun and ready to walk out the studio door with you to a new home. What do you say?

If you want to follow along on the new art making journey I'll post more here, so stay tuned, but a more up to date version can be seen on Instagram: @misterthad

Summer Painting Update

Almost three weeks in to summer vacation and the time is officially slip sliding away.  

Not to say that things haven't been productive, because they have, but I can't believe how much time has flown by while I intentionally ignore "work". Though I guess that is what breaks and vacations are for - to allow for some amount of time to be spent on family and yours truly and to regenerate. All that is happening so I guess I'm on the right path.  

 

What at has happened is that I am basically functioning in a new studio space, and the fourth of a new series of paintings happened there yesterday.

Above you can see the first of the series, and I'm nearing the end of having one for every season.  

They will soon be available as original paintings and as prints both in my online Forgeron Studios store and on Etsy, so stay tuned.  

 

There re is a lot more to come in terms of updates, so this summer is looking to be an exciting time for his as of yet little used blog.  

 

Cheers.
