another recent drawing. I’m working on a large drawing this week, not sure if I will complete it within the week or not but it’s fun to have so much more surface to work on. I’ll be posting updates in my Instagram stories: https://www.instagram.com/john.otter.art/

I’m also looking forward to hosting a Sunday afternoon soiree later in August for friends and collectors. I have so many paintings, prints and drawings that are currently in storage – I’d rather have them get out into the world. I’m picturing a small gathering with mimosas, fresh produce from the farmer’s market, conversation, maybe some music and a lot of art. If you’re interested in attending please email me.

new drawing & deadline

I really mean to post more here, so today I’ll add a recently completed drawing: ink and colored pencil on mat board, approximately 5×6″

Also I’m working on a large painting for an upcoming exhibition whose deadline in now only a few days away. Hoping I can work on it for another 10 -20 hours this weekend. It’s gotten to the point where I’m working on it in 15-20 minute intervals any time that I can. I’ll post more about that when it’s complete.
