Art delivered to Saratoga Art Center gallery
Today, after several months of work, I rented a van and took 27 framed pieces up to the Saratoga Art Center gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY. The opening reception and book signing is Saturday, August 2, 2008 from 5-8p.m. Please come by if you are in the area.
For most of the last 25 years I have concentrated on presenting and marketing my posters, not on the original artwork that made the posters. So, this is new for me. It's my first one-person show of all the originals. I can't wait to see how it all comes together.
Shown here is one of my very favorite pieces. It's the only piece in the show that's NOT a Travers poster original. This is "Flamingo Jockey." It takes its name and color from the famous tropical bird. I created it for the Travers but never used it as a poster. Instead, it became my favorite Dick Francis book cover. It is the largest print in the show — 41" x 52" (104cm x 132cm.) I just love it.
