I've already been added to the events page for Eilandarts Center in Merchantville, NJ for September. The urgency is certainly there for me to finish the two very incomplete paintings you see pictured above. I have 5 paintings, 6 if you count the old one from 2003 on my brother's living room wall. At best, I'll be doing a 1-man show with 7 new canvases.
I suppose I had some good excuses why I couldn't find the time to paint, but none of that matters now. I have to hang sometime during the first week in September, and that gives me about 3 weeks to finish.
