had enough of me blabbing yet? if not, I did another short Q&A with Shooting Gallery earlier this week. you can find it here: http://www.shootinggallerysf.com/blog/2011/06/a-converstaion-with-aaron-nagel/

Aside from the blabbings, i’ve been running around all week prepping for the show — lots of varnish, lots of fumes. I took 7 paintings to Shooting Gallery today and will take the rest over tomorrow when we’ll actually start hanging. I like this part, and am very much looking forward to having all the work there and ready to go. I’ll post some pictures of the install. so far, I’m a lot more relaxed than I was leading up to the show last year. that will probably change, but i’m feeling good so far.

As I mentioned in previous posts, the show will consist of a series of portraits in addition to my usual larger work. here’s the second of the series:
