New Art

Here are a few new pieces I've done recently. The BB King painting is only 8"x10" oil and I originally painted it for the "Blast The Blues", but it didn't sell. The Sammy Hagar is also 8x10. I just wanted to do a quickie Sammy painting. Tom Petty charcoal was going to be raffled off for the studio's anniversary, but I decided to keep it for sale instead. The charcoal of Sammy Hagar was just for fun. All can be seen in the studio!

Another drawing

This is the drawing I did for the "Art Clash" in Bay City. 18x24 charcoal.

Oh, and I didn't win. And it sold for less than it costs to fill half a tank of gas.

April Comes in and Goes Out ROUGH!!!!

April's packed with energy, stress and ALOTTA art for Ol' Nuttall Art!!

TODAY, Saturday, April 2nd I'm competing in an art battle in Bay City called
"Art Clash 2011". I've become very disillusioned with art battles. I think they're great, don't get me wrong. If you're a fan of the arts, you should definitely hit up a few. What bothers me, however, is the judging aspect. I like the idea of the general public voting for their favorite artwork, but after the second battle I did, I noticed that some artists were bringing in their own numbers to vote for them. I usually have 3 people at the most show to the battles I compete in, but some of the artists bring in friends and family that could start a baseball team! I don't mind losing, as long as the artwork that wins is good! (DISCLAIMER: this is a general opinion of the entirety of battles I've done, not just one venue. I've done some battles in 3 or 4 venues altogether). I've seen some nice work get nothing while lesser-quality work gets placed. BUT, and this is what my rant leads to, BUT, this Art Clash is being judged by local artists and instructors from the venue, so quality should overcome quantity. And let's face it, Daddy needs the money!!

This coming Thursday Nuttall Art will be participating in the Ogemaw County Community and Business Expo at Ogemaw Heights High School from 4-9. I'm going to be giving stuff out, sell some raffle tickets (maybe) for the anniversary party, and exhibit some examples of my work and maybe sell some swag.
THEN, Saturday, April 16th will be the Downtown West Branch Art & Wine Walk from 5-9, and the NUTTALL ART STUDIO's 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY is a part of the Walk! The anniversary starts at 4 and MOMENTS BY M is hosting Nuttall Art Studio for the Art and Wine Walk. There'll be food, drinks, free wine tasting, a $2 art raffle (FYI if you buy a ticket or tickets, you get a sketch, so even if you don't win, you walk away with something!), free stuff, new stuff for sale, and music on the cd player. Stop in. You won't regret it.
OK, I think this is the last thing: April 30th (I think? I have to double check the date) is "Blast The Blues" at Dean Arbour Ford in West Branch, where I'll be on display. This is the third B the B, and the 3rd time I've been a part of it. I try to display blues or rock related artwork and donate blues-related artwork to the auction.
I think that's all! I'll update if I remember anything! Wish me luck.
