Quick little news update amongst all the Sweet Nothings here. I just got my copy of the latest issue of New American Paintings. I'm fortunate to be in this issue for my larger works on panel, so, check 'em out. There's a lot of great work AND I got a little mention in the front matter from the Juror's Comments.

Spencer’s dynamic, Day-Glo children’s-book-ready scenes that have taken disturbingly dysfunctional turns recall the often intensely psychodramatic nature of Hairy Who, yet in a style that feels more precisely appropriative of existing imagery.

The Widow Maker

In case you've been wondering why I haven't put up any new Sweet Nothings in the past week, here's your answer: The Widow Maker show. I've been cranking out some new big work for this show and I've been hella busy. Please stop by during the reception to say, 'Sup?' and I'll say it back. Additionally, I'll have ALL the Sweet Nothings on display too! Hope to see you there. Even if you don't want to see the Sweet Nothings there's plenty other good work by some other people too. Who? Oh, just the incredible Will Penny, the ever-so talented Michael Porten and Elizabeth Winnel the magnificent. Wow, come check it out if you don't believe me!

Don't worry about the Sweet Nothings btw, I'm gonna get right back to them after the show.
with love,
Britt

New American Paintings, go get you some

Check out the New American Paintings #99 MFA Annual out on shelves now. If you buy a copy from this link http://www.newamericanpaintings.com/99discounted.html you can shave a couple dollars off the cost. I consider myself fortunate for being selected to have my work appear along so many talented MFA candidates from around the nation. It's also been great hearing from subscribers of the magazine... a couple accolades received from some great artist and peers. As of yet, I haven't had many crazies to come out of the woodwork to congratualte me, just one, in a brief but nonetheless awkward texting session. But it's still on the shelves for a bit longer... so, maybe I'll get lucky and score a few more odd exchanges.

Below are a few photos of the issue, including my bio pic, provided by presidential photog. Adam Kuehl- thanks Adam.
