This artwork is stretching out to over 80 inches in length. Of course this artwork reminds me of earlier works, especially with its length, but because of some resemblances, I will find ways to do something different with this work to not only make it unique looking, but to also coax this style forward. All I need to accomplish my expectations for this artworks is the ideas to make that happen, which at this moment do not exist. That may be because lately I have turned away from working on this work. That progress was held up, in order for me to work on new works I wanted for a couple of small art shows.
For the one day show this weekend at the Artisan Forge, I have created two smaller mini four note Beethoven 5th artworks including placing them in custom-built frames.
These mini Beethoven artworks each measure about 9.5 inches in length by 10.5 inches in height. Also, new for this show I have created an extended musical version of Beethoven’s Für Elise.
This Beethoven artwork is also in a new custom frame with overall measurements of 33 inches in length by about 10.25 inches in height. All three of these artworks have buttons to press to listen to the music:
For the Show all November at the Elmaro Winery near Winona Minnesota, I will be displaying only one artwork which is this updated earlier version of Für Elise. It was last year late that I showed my first version of Beethoven’s 5th that sold quickly at Elmaro, but without the music.
Finally, here is Beethoven’s Ode to Joy in the last of the new custom frames, that has been on display for a number of months at the Artisan Forge Gallery, but in a much larger, 20 by 24 inch frame. These new custom frames, built to fit the shape of the artworks, I hope will present these little works in a much more appealing way.
Lastly, I have this other very little addition to my Art Fair and Show inventory:
Next up back to work on The Tango artwork, but again there will be some distraction, for I also need to start work on the Christmas painting for the 2018 Christmas cards.
