I’m not sorry, I don’t want to take your call right now. I’m currently touring Italy. Check out the postings on the Expedition page at the top right menu, or click here. Ciao!
Well, here it is. A taste of what’s to come. This is my first attempt at an Italian subject. Ambitious, I know. It’s a painting I’ve donated to Golder Associates to be given away as a prize at the International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) Conference in Florence, April 20-23, 2015 ….. a place where science and art were born and again combine as one. A very special thanks to Cecilia A. (grazie mille!), who lent me a photograph to use for the painting, as I have not yet seen the Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore). Until then, I won’t feel worthy of painting this historic and majestic subject. Soon though. Very soon.
Following the inaugural Expedition Nepal in 2012, I’ll be travelling this time to Italy in April of 2015 to gather reference material in preparation for a big shift in my art style, subjects and atmosphere. It’s time to change it up. History is so rich in Italy, from the Etruscan era through Roman times, I anticipate it will be present in many of my works. The goal is to find inspiration, and pass it on in the form of a painting. The goal is to express life.
Once again, I’m offering a discount, this time of 23%, to investors who would like to sign up for a painting ahead of the expedition. The investment will help fund the trip and ensure you receive a painting of your invested value sooner after completion. See the poster or pdf link below for more details! To sign up, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your interest in the expedition, and the amount you would like to invest for a painting. I will contact you again in March indicating the investment is due and pass along a receipt. I’ll further discuss ideas with you when I return from the expedition. I look forward to creating something you will cherish as your own or gift to someone special.
To all those that have already invested – thank you! – and a wise investment indeed!
