So Much Going On

Traveling Show of the Wave Series, Books, Sold Work, and Pastel Workshop

Yesterday I got confirmation for two venues for my traveling exhibition, The Wave Series, sixteen seascape pastels based on my color theory system. I only came up with the idea for the traveling show yesterday. I will approach a few other other venues like University galleries and hopefully a museum or two. But already it is a success.

Renaissance man, Brett Holverstott, architect, author of Randell Mills and the Search for Hydrino Energy, countless articles, art critic, father of two, dabbler in sculpture and drawing, humanist, figurative art revolutionary, and now the proud owner of the Figure Ground Gallery in Seattle, Washington has booked the Wave Series for September 2nd, 2021.

Renaissance woman, gorgeous Jennifer Grossman, CEO of the Atlas Society, past Senior Vice President of Dole Foods,  speechwriter to President George H.W. Bush (1989-1992), past Director of Education Policy at the Cato Institute, author of articles that appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Post, Los Angeles Times, Weekly Standard, National Review, Washington Times, the Women s Quarterly among many others, she has appeared on MSNBC, CNN and CNBC, Larry King Live, Hannity & Colmes, the O’Reilly Factor and Politically Incorrect, and great champion of individualism through reason and aesthetics has kindly offered to host the show in her magnificent home, Scorpiesse which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Date to be announced.

Today I found out that I will be given credit as a contributing author to the Pocket Guide to Objectivism for the section What is Objectivism’s View of Art? It has a 34 out of 34 five-star ratings. The author credit will show up sometime this week. Which will give my author page a 3rd book! The other two books Newberry Color Theory and Evolution Through Art have 10 out of 10 five-star ratings.

Today I got the Kindle files for the eBook version of Evolution Through Art, from a formatting specialists Polgarus Studio out of Tasmania!

In the last four days my email has been beeping me with royalty notices from Amazon, crazy, I barely comprehend what passive income is, so it feels strange–instead of receiving notices of outgoing payments I am getting incoming. I am still not 100% certain that it is real.

This week I have four artworks going to new homes. And, it is a shame that I have to deliver three of them to dear ones in Monterey Bay and Carmel.

Lastly in a mere two weeks I am teaching a 4-Day Pastel Workshop in Idyllwild. The students are dear friends and we will have such a great time making art, seeing beauty everywhere, eating out, and sharing our world of experiences. Can’t wait.

  1. Michael!

    Wow! Wow! Wow! This is over-the-moon exuberantly fantastic news. There are all sorts of interconnected fireworks going on here. I LOVE reading that amazon is pinging you with royalty notices and that you’re working with a kindle formatting company in Tasmania…how cool is that? (Answer: Totally)

    And your new traveling exhibition…I read Brett’s wonderful review of EoA on Medium, followed his various links and wound up buying his illuminating book on Randell Mills. I don’t think I was aware that he owned a gallery, but synchronicity doesn’t get much better. And to have Jennifer also host the exhibition at Scorpiesse…well, that puts the exhibit pretty close to the top of the world right there.

    Superb Congratulations, my friend! ✨🚀✨
