Art Basel caught up with me today and knocked me on my ass all the energy spent taking in the Art , going from gallery to gallery ,hoping and praying took its toll and I sleep like a log deep in the woods. Refreshed I awoke to the realization that I was a small part of this fabric called art , I was a thread that when woven with the infinite threads called artist we created an awesome energy.I look forward to creating and participating in art events in the coming year. I know that if follow the the path and search and reach out to the opportunities that present themselves to me every thing will be alright.

A couple of months ago I move a few of my wood pieces to the front yard of my home the garden grew from an Idea that my brother Donald had , he originally placed his paintings out every so often with a for sale sign. We got about two hits over a three month period. After we gave up on placing his paintings out there , I thought it would be the perfect place to store some of the sculptures that were accumulating at My Bakehouse studio. I wanted to place them randomly on the streets of Miami but I did want to see them thrown away as trash or scooped up as free art. They are on view at the garden at 5005 North Miami Ave. Miami , Fl , you have to slow down to see them.

Today I dusted off my older pieces and shined up the new stuff. I am getting ready set up the show Nov.14, 2009 at Green Light Artspace 4512 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, Fl; I took a sneak preview of Black& White, the show at the Bakehouse Art Complex. My piece “A Little Piece of Heaven” holds its own and represents me well in my absence. Both shows will open at the same time; I will of course be at Green Light Artspace working with Adam to make this show a success .For those of you that don’t already know my work I can assure you that my work will touch you and leave wanting to see more. So come, see, enjoy and support an artist who believes in originality and unique expression...
Also showing with me is Donald McKnight with his thought provoking surreal dreamscapes. His paintings will provoke conversation, emotion and question. Looking at both of our work you will begin to see a thread that ties us together, aside from the fact that we are brothers, we attempt to uncover layers of philosophical thought and take a strong look at the raw distinction between Art and decoration. Looking good is important but at the same time we want to speak to you the viewer.
We are the artist known as MIAMI.

during the 9Th annual Oscar Thomas show I was feeling rather weak and lethargic. i went to the hospital to find out hat my right eye was lost to glaucoma . I have partial sight in the right and clear or near perfect in the left . I know have a valve in the right eye to keep the pressure from building up and putting both eyes at risk. I have had two laser treatments on the eye .
