Metropolis, 32 x 48 inches, oil on canvas, 2002
I was just informed that one of my paintings, Metropolis, is now officially a part of the permanent collection at the Crocker Art Museum!! I am really excited, to say the least!
I did this painting back in 2002 for an exhibition of the same title. I remember struggling with it quite a bit. I loved it, I hated it. I loved it, I hated it. One of those pieces. In the end I loved it and didn't want to sell it but it was for an exhibition and the image was already on the invites so I had to let it go.
Now it has somehow found a new home at the Crocker! I don't know if it's actually displayed, but never mind. I'm just happy to be in the collection.
I gotta open a good bottle of wine to celebrate now. It's not even 4 pm. but who cares!?
