CANVAS 5  An Art Premier, Tampa FL

Friday, October 16th, 8 PM – 1 AM (Free Admission)

2702 Causeway Center Drive
Tampa, FL 33619

If you’re in the greater Tampa Bay Area, it’s worth the trip to attend Canvas 5 – An Art Premier of selected emerging local artists.

Canvas exists to simply promote a community of inspiration. The idea, the dream, was born to provide a spring board to local up and coming artists, in such a way that would benefit both their craft and their career. The desire is not to bleed the artists of their funds, it is not to exploit them for sponsorship revenue, but to let them know that there are people who care and want to help.

Canvas is the brain child of Mike DeSerio and Bobby Triplett, both of which are part of the leadership team for Element Church in the Brandon/Tampa area. Their desire was to hold an event that could reach out to the art community of Tampa Bay – an event that could foster both excellence and creativity and could impact a city through the expressions of inspiration.

Making an Investment in Art

August 11th, 2009

I had always heard that a piece of art was an “investment” and I had always thought the buyer was the person making the investment. It wasn’t until I began to paint did I learn that the artist, too, makes a great investment.

Each piece I create is a labor of love. I obsess over the subject, the proportions, the colors, the strokes, the textures – often putting many hours, days or even weeks into a single piece. It is not unusual to find me working way into the wee hours of the morning. It is a passion in which I make my unique imprint in the hopes that I will later discover the one person who sees my work – and all that it embodies – and they choose to make the investment with me. And then my art becomes even more – it becomes a special connection with someone who will take it home or to their office or bring it to a friend or loved one to share – and my passion will be in their lives for many years to come. This is why I create.
