June 2017

Art is not handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced. ~Tolstoy

Three weekends of shows in June! Mighty busy. I remember thinking how relieved I was to not be moving (2 times) and to be doing an art fair. Now I will be relieved to finish doing art fairs (briefly) in order to have a baby. Should I live to see the end of 2017, it will definitely have been a refining year. Thanks for being a part of it and tracking with me through it. Here are some new collectors! Congrats!

Go East My Son

July will see me over to a lovely show next to Lake Michigan. Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff is July 8-9. The following weekend, I'll be setting up in State College, Pennsylvania. I've often been encouraged to take my paintings East. The idea being: My work is more traditional/historical and should have a greater appeal in the older parts of the country. We shall see. Check back with me next month for a full report of my findings.

Birger Sandzen Gallery

Almost a year and a half ago I was given an invitation to display my work at this prestigious gallery in Lindsborg. Haven't heard of Lindsborg? Follow this link to check out "Little Sweden." My exhibition is titled Ancora Imparo. Many of you will already know the meaning of the phrase but if not, it's roughly translated, "still learning." The show will feature works I've made over the last 20 years and chronicle the growth I've experienced while painting. Each painting is a tutor, and I've got much to learn yet. We are all a work in progress, a very exciting prospect. The opening reception (including artist talk) will take place Aug. 5.

Paintings drying

I just finished up "Cleanliness is next to Godliness" I still smell soap after making this painting. Do you need a bar of soap? I'll send you one. Perhaps even one of the very bars that posed for this painting. Simply reply to this email with a mailing address. While you are patiently waiting for your soap to arrive feel free to check the website for new work!

Papa, Combine, Wheat, Stuck, Oh no!

Ernest IV got his first taste of Summer wheat harvest. It was a magical world to a boy just shy of 2 years old. As the title of this suggests, the combine harvester did get stuck in the mud and now Ernest has a story to tell you in four words. His other narrative is "Ball, White, Wahwah, Oh no!" Twenty points to whoever can figure that one out. Here is the lad perched on his massive green chariot surveying the amber waves of grain.
Cheers, and thanks for reading,
Ernest Vincent Wood III
