He doesn't really understand where he belongs. He loves the city, but he longs for the country. He misses being able to hear the crickets chirp and listening to himself think. But when he visits the country, he misses the busyness of the city... the loud sirens, the movement, the people. Which is the best escape for him? Where does he have a better peace of mind.

Lost Somewhere Between the City & the Country
This is an original illustration using pen, ink, and marker on 100% recycled French Paper. It has been sealed and varnished with an acid-free protective spray. After I completed this piece, I heard about the opportunity to donate small artwork to the Exhibition-Benefit Works on Paper at Cuchifritos Gallery in New York City. I thought that this sounded like a fun opportunity to share my artwork with new people. And I knew that the proceeds would be for a good cause. The show is a benefit for Artists Alliance, Inc. (AAI), an artist run not-for-profit visual artist organization that supports a rotating studio program, an alternative gallery space, and a host of other contemporary art programs.

The opening is Saturday, March 8 and runs through Saturday, March 15, 2008. If you happen to live in the New York area, you should visit the show. There will be all sorts of small works of art on paper, including prints, drawings, paintings, collage, photographs, and digital prints. All works will be sold for under $80, providing new and established collectors with an excellent opportunity to economically invest in a wide selection of diverse emerging artists, while at the same time investing in the future of the arts on the Lower East Side!
