My FAVO Pulse exhibit.

On the first Friday of each month, FAVO, (221 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32801) a former motel on Colonial Drive becomes a place to check out the latest visual art from local Orlando Artists. Jennifer Gwynne Oliver rents a ground floor studio, and at the last minute, an artist who planned to exhibit their work in her studio backed out. I had given Jennifer a call asking if I could hand one piece just to tests the waters. She responded that I could hang as much work as I wanted. So I packed about a dozen Pulse themed sketched in a granny card and transported the work to FAVO. The nails were already in the wall and amazingly there were just enough nails for the amount of work I transported. The traffic was slow to start but my last minute Facebook invite brought out my trusted friends who showed their support. The corner studio was offset from most foot traffic. I was told that placing a stuffed panda outside the door used to attract potential viewers. I passed the time sketching. I had a few of my Urban Sketching books on hand and one book sold. That was the one sale for the night. I am satisfied that new people had a chance to see the Pulse related work that I cintinue to produce each week. Once it was time to wind down, all the art went back in my granny cart and it was wheeled back to my car. It was a good night to catch up with friends and share my work. Who could ask for more?

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com

I love the way you manage, every time, to catch the mood and the feeling of the place
