Website Updated, Upcoming Shows

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to let you all know that I've added some new paintings to my website.  ( http://www.marcelguldemond.com )  You can also see them at Arts on King in Toronto, where they are currently located. There is one piece missing from the website, unfortunately: I apparently forgot to take photos of one of the hockey paintings, and of course, by the time I figured that out, it had been sold already. Kind of a bummer, but that's the kind of thing that happens sometimes when you're scrambling to get everything ready just before a show.

I also have some new small paintings ready, although I haven't added them to the website yet, and some will be going to Arts on King, and some are going to the Great Big Smalls Show at the Cube Gallery here in Ottawa during December. (www.cubegallery.ca)

I expect that these will likely be amongst the last sets of small paintings that I'll be doing. I will probably do a few more sets of them over the winter, but I've working more and more on large paintings over the last few years, and I've found that there's a much broader range of creative exploration for me with the larger pieces. I learned a lot about being an artist while doing the small scale pieces over the years, and I'm also very gratified that so many of you took them home with you and have been so happy with them. That being said, after doing so many of them, I think they've basically run their course and it's time for me to move on.

Which leads me into what I'm working on now:  I'll be showing at The Toronto Artist Project next March, and about a month later, I'll be showing again at the Spring One of a Kind Show, also in Toronto. I'm very excited about being in both of those shows and I'm really looking forward to it. Two shows are a lot to get ready for, however, and I'm also kind of nervous about being able to get enough work done, so from here on in, I'll be working hard on getting as much really good art ready for them as I can. I'll be sending out more updates in the new year as those shows get closer. You can also keep track of my progress by checking my blog ( http://marcelguldemond.blogspot.com/ )
