I have been keeping a journal for 26 years. Something I notice when I read back to see what was going on in my life, say 10 years ago, is that there’s a definite cycle, a pattern of behaviours and moods. February always stands out. There is a way for me to combat the February doldrums — by occupying myself with deadlines. So for the last several months, I have been working toward a late March exhibition in New York. Too occupied to fuss around on social media. And that is a good thing.

I have begun working on the last two paintings for the exhibition and it feels good. Once they are complete, I move into packing and shipping. The shipping part is the most anxiety-riddled process as I hand over my life’s work to companies whom I trust to get everything across the continent intact and on time.

    We still love our converse running shoe painting after many years.
    I pass by it every morning and it makes me smile.

  2. Betty Peveto says:

    I love this. Will you have prints available in the future? Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

    • Chris says:

      Yes – I will have this as a print and it will be on sale at the beginning of March. Keep an eye on my blog and I’ll announce it here.

  3. Gary Grobson says:

    Thank you as always for keeping me informed on your latest work. As an avid, and longtime photographer I am especially taken by this image. Well done. Keep up the great work.

    Hi Chris, Burke and I will be in New York City April 10 – 15 for the American Watercolor Society Exhibition. Will your show be up at George Billis Gallery during our visit?

    Living in a rural Northern California oak forest we have an evacuation plan in case of wildfires. Our Bullwinkle painting is number 1 in our art collection to be grabbed on the way out the door. Just thought you’d like to know how much we love that painting, it brings smiles every day.

    • Chris says:

      Yes – the show will be up until April 27. Make sure you pop into the gallery! Take a stroll on the High Line while you’re there. There’s an entrance only steps away from the gallery door.

      Glad to hear Bullwinkle brings the joy!
