Having spent my entire adult life here in the state of Ohio, I am excited about the next chapter beginning in North Carolina. (Sidenote: I refer only to permanent residence...I have left the state of Ohio and the country to travel, so I haven't lived a completely sheltered Ohio life.) I did debate as to whether I should begin with a "taking my talents to North Carolina" line, but let's face it, our "Decision" isn't quite as newsworthy as the best basketball player on the planet leaving Cleveland the 1st time around (but certainly not the last time). Plus, wouldn't want any backlash from clients & collectors, who might take to the streets, burning any artwork by me. I am, of course, being sarcastic...surprise.
I look forward to immersing myself into the great art scene surrounding the area we will be moving into, and am hopeful that it will be a busier time for me as an artist. Hopefully they will welcome us "Yankees" with Cheerwine and BBQ...and maybe some frozen hot chocolate from Videri's when the temps warm up a bit.
And, while I will certainly miss having a MLB ballpark close by for when my Cubs are in town, there are so many minor league teams and great collegiate baseball programs in the area, that I will more than get my "fill" of baseball each year. Plus, DC isn't too far away if I get an itch to see my guys. With that said, I hope to start creating some NC-themed artwork in the coming months...so keep your eyes peeled this year for some of that. But, as always, I am available for commissions, so if you have a custom project you'd like, just email me to get things rolling!
While we will be leaving a great deal of friends and family behind in the state of Ohio, we hope they will come and visit us in North Carolina! And even though our address will look and feel different, Ohio will always be our true home. So, until next time. Thanks for dropping by.
Not rocket science, just a bit of an inside look at my artwork...with some photos and possibly some humor mixed in for your enjoyment.
