20,000 miles and never touch the ground

by Geoff Slater

It's been a busy, busy, busy number of months with a few of Skype classroom visits with  students in Washington State and Missouri. (If you are interested in having me "visit" your classroom virtually, just contact me.)

I've also been painting some commissions for cruise ship presentations...

And there have been private commissions...

Now, I am finishing up a painting which is heading to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery for an upcoming fundraising exhibit. It's called, "20,000 miles and never touch the ground" It will be for sale beginning November 28, 2012. Can you guess the subject?

Private mural

I've put housebuilding on the back burner for a while so I can concentrate on some art-related projects. The first of these is a mural in a private home.

The mural is in on the side wall of a stairwell so I've set up staging to work from.

Here are the first photos with more to follow in the days to come.

Morning at the new house

Sometimes, after a big push, it's nice to just sit back, relax and think... yep, it's all been worth it.

Now - back to work!

Art, Music and the Sounds of Construction

It's been a while since I've posted. Building a house will do that to a guy.

We began construction of our new home in November. Today, just over three and a half months later, we are at the stage where we can almost move in. It's been a marathon with zero hours left in the day for artmaking.

However, over the holidays I was able to take some time off to design an image for the East Tennessee State University Department of Music's Spring Concert Brochure.

Here's how it turned out...

That's all for now. Short, but sweet.
