It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’m in good health I took a break because my creative muse stopped. My muse was letting me know I was not fine. I removed Facebook and Twitter from my phone and pulled my work from from Las Vegas Artist Guild and City of World gallery’s. I covered the a large painting in my studio. Stopping “social media” I was no longer being pushed to be mad at something out of my control. Pulling my paintings let the pressure off my muse. It took months of to get back to where I was able to uncover my painting from March and put it away for later and put a new paper on a board.
So here is things moving forward. I will be feeding my muse with trips to beautiful places every month. I no longer look at social media. I will be posting my paintings on Facebook, Tumbler, and Instagram because it’s where people are.
If you want me to respond to you come over to http://www.JohnGregg.com. Go to my WordPress blog. All my work from the years is here.
Here how to get a hold of me
The last trip to Moab UT took 7 days with four camp sites in southern UT. Escalante, to Capital Reef, to Dead Horse, to Arches. Next trip is back to southern UT base camp near Natural Bridge nation park it will be at the first of 6/22 for several days.
The last place to show my work. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Its been about two months of not painting. So I’ve pulled all my work from everywhere. Last year was a rough year. I’m going to see what comes next.
At City of the World Gallery in Meadows mall next to the down stairs entrance to Macys. Brought my watercolor paints to play with. City of the World Gallery is a non profit and has a lot of local artists represented remember to buy local.
The watercolor painting got a name “Moon Rise” I made a new frame and decided mat it in black mat board. This watercolor painting is going to Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall Las Vegas Artists Guild is next to the upstairs entrance to Dillards Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery is a nonprofit gallery that represents a lot of local artists from Las Vegas. Remember to shop local first.
We where out this morning and stopped in the Arts Factory. The Art to Go vending machine is right in front of Squishy gallery. The vending machine gives you a lot of choices of great art. I would recommend the blank cards with original watercolor paintings. My cards are priced at 15.00. All the art in the Gallery to Go machine is reasonably priced. #johngreggstudios
I’ve been excepted into Gallery to Go art vending machines run by Nicole Cochener. I’ve made 15 original 5” x 7” watercolor with blank cards and envelopes. I will be dropping off the cards this week at her gallery Squishy Studio at the Arts Factory. The themes for the watercolor paintings are Fall in the Canyon, Red Sail, Purple reflection, Grass is always greener and Cold winter’s night. I don’t like painting on cards so each watercolor painting is painted on good quality paper. There’s four paintings per paper, the paper is cut to 5” x 7” and mounted on a blank card.
