art diary Bradford Brenner

You've found my blog spot (everyone has one and I just discovered mine recently) where I'll make up things that I know about art.

Way behind the post

My posting frequency rivals my gym attendance. Sporadic at best!

Monday 9-25-06

Yesterday went well. I think I made a lot of headway on a 48" x 30" figuruative piece that is destined to go to Atlanta. Now keep in mind that I have yet to look at the painting this morning. Often times that can be a very rude awakening. If all goes well, I might just have a photo of the painting posted later today.

Sunday- 9-24-06

I'm about to head down to my studio and attempt to paint. I've had my fair share of espresso already, but deep down I know that another couple of shots are in my immediate future. I like drinking espresso more than coffee. Take too many coffee breaks and one can't help but feel like a procrastinator. Taking a quick espresso break...completely guilt free and kind of Euro. I will report back on my artistic progress later today. Just answered the doorbell. Painting will have to wait. It was our friend and neighbor Anthony returning our dinning room chairs that were borrowed for his birthday party last night. As dessert was served, a loud screeching sound was heard. Fellow party guest Steve (who only seconds before was sitting in one of our chairs) came crashing down. For the last 2 years I had been meaning to re- glue two of the four chairs. Unfortunately for Steve I had yet to get around to actually doing it (and he was parked in one of the fateful two for the better part of the evening). That being said, I'm off to glue now and paint later.

New Old Painting

Here is a new old painting. I think that any and all improvement in art comes simply from seeing better. This painting was sent back from 'A Gallery' in Palm Desert (where it was sequestered away for quite some time). I was shocked to see a large tree on the extreme left edge of the painting. I have to believe that I originally put it there and for the life of me can't quite figure out why. Immediately after getting it back, that tree was promptly chopped out of the painting. The one thing that I do know for sure about art, is that it is impossible to just change one thing! Numerous changes later, here it is.

State of the Art

My most recent accomplishment is starting my blog site (understandably, I'm very proud of this. That was a joke). Prior to that I signed an exclusive agreement with Third & Wall Art Publishers ( to produce limited editons of my work. I'm currently featured on the cover of the Atlanta Museums and Galleries Guide (which just so happens to be my first successful blog photo upload as seen below). Much of my time, as of late, has been focused on producing a body of work for Third & Wall and painting and shipping works to Lagerquist Gallery in Atlanta for my show that runs from Sept 26th - Oct. 13th, 2006 ( Now that everyone is up to date with my mundane life and career, I will attempt to be funnier and more entertaining in the future (in the interest of generating ongoing viewership).

Second attempt at uploading a photo

I having a good feeling that this is working. Fingers are crossed.

First installment

Hi, this is my first post. As of the time of the posting, I have yet to touch a brush today. Not even a tooth brush.
