Humpty Dumpty found a home

Just sold another painting late yesterday! Thats two paintings sold in the same day and the third painting sold in just a week. I’m doing pretty darn good this month! Thanks to the person who gave this painting a new home. I really enjoyed doing this painting and I’ve had the concept down on paper for weeks. It was actually inspired from the “Designers in Toyland” show I wrapped up with the AIGA earlier this month. I was considering making a 3d sculpture of sorts of humpty dumpty and this painting was more of a sketch of what the final creation was going to look like. I decided to just go with the hand sewn skull bunny(s) instead, which were a hit anyhow. Thanks again for bringing a little bit of my style into your home. Hope ya dig it as much as I enjoyed making this character.

SOLD @ Avondale Artworks

Just sold another one of my “bigger” pieces up at Avondale Artworks here in Jacksonville. This painting is titled “Fill this Emptiness”. I originally did the painting for the Cummer Art Museum during the Folio Weekly artist invitational. I have to admit that I’m happy and sad to see this one go. This piece is one of my favorites to date and it is also one of my larger pieces. Thanks to Ken @ Avondale Artworks and a big thanks to the person who took this baby home. Happy Holidays!!-B.G.

SOLD @ Avondale Artworks


Just made my first sale out at my new home gallery out at Avondale Artworks. This piece sold on Saturday right after I dropped off a new batch of paintings to the gallery. Im now featured in the front window of the gallery and according to Ken( the president of the gallery) the response has been insane. Lots of people who are maybe not so familiar with me or my work are dropping by every day to see what Im all about. Very good news! Its stuff like this that really motivate me to keep pushing forward. During this month I plan on busting some butt to have all new work for the gallery for December’s artist reception on the first friday of the month. Speaking of which, Avondale Artworks will have an artist reception for all the artists involved with the gallery every first Friday of each month…so, Ill be out at the gallery on this Friday 11/5 from 6-9 if ya wanna hang out or just meet me for the first time. Avondale Artworks is a great gallery and Ken is super awesome and I appreciate him giving me a shot. -Ill post a pic up real soon of a brand new piece I just did for the gallery( my pc at home is down, should be working tonight).- Peace.-BG

Where to Find Me

Currently I am not participating in any art galleries. Untill I get back up to speed I most likey will not be a "regular" at any galleries for a little while. Thing may change but, I have killed myself time and time again trying to keep up with the demands of art shows and art galleries and Im trying to limit myself to that sort of thing so I can produce better quality work vs just a big quanity of work to fill up wall space. Im sure this will change here in 2012 but, Im being very picky about what I will and wont do.

Best bet is to stay in touch with me is through my website! Join my email subscription so ya dont miss out on what I have up and coming or find me on facebook.

Taking a break from art shows, deadlines, and galleries for a bit.
