Live from Grand Rapids …

1978, John's ArtPrize Entry

1978, John's ArtPrize Entry

My painting has officially taken its place among the more than 1,200 works on display all around Grand Rapids, Mich. this week.

I arrived in Grand Rapids this afternoon and got a pleasant surprise — the Ottawa Tavern gave me premium wall placement for 1978, so more people are likely to see it. It’s even visible from the sidewalk through the Ottawa’s windows.

I’ll be taking part in ArtPrize events for most of the next few days. If you would like to know what I’m up to, you can check me out on Twitter. My wife/marketing consultant has peer pressured me into tweeting and this seems like the perfect time to really give it a try with the stream-of-consciousness updates.
