So moving is hell, it really is. Your life just gets put in a glass jar and gets shaken up like homemade dressing.
If you're an artist it gets even worse if you have a shit load of art. I'm a licensed artist, so I license the art sometime with a 3 yr. agreement. I really feel like I have to hold onto that art for the time under contract. So, I have a ton of art. When I left Malibu I took mostly my art on paper, stuffed into portfolios.....they're my best friends.
So getting established in a new city....whew, I need a nap.
Getting established as an artist in a city that is known for tourism? Even more difficult, but I do have ideas.
My goals are simple, I want to bring a recognition of abstract art to Oahu. I'm going to try to introduce local people to abstract art, to classes hopefully down the road. I want people to realize there is a lot more to art than a lot of the tourist art you see in Honolulu.
I want to introduce people to the look and feel of "organic art" on an island that's so green, lush, and over flowing in abundance of life.
Look for me at first Friday in Honolulu Chinatown in January, more info to follow.
