On March 19th, 2011, at Arc Project Gallery in San Francisco, we had the opening for Panamax. Getting ready for the opening, especially the two weeks before, represented a painting marathon. But something wonderful happened along the way - I loosened up. I enjoyed the entire process, but especially the finish line, seeing the paintings come to life in the final strokes, and seeing them hanging in a gorgeous space. Here are some shots of the show, and of the finished works:
And now, the finished works:
I went ahead an emphasized some of the paintings in a floating black frame. It looked great:
The weather was awful for the opening - a veritable monsoon outside, but we still had almost 80 people show up, for which I am very grateful for. The paintings remain for sale, and if you are interested in getting a price list, just email me at eric(at)3fishstudios(dot)com.
Special thanks go to:
- Justin Watt, who generously provided many of the images for the show from his adventures.
- Mike Kimball, who encouraged me to do this with him.
- Arc Studios and Gallery, who generously provided the space for the show.

and last but certainly not least

That's a wrap!
