After a long hiatus the TILAAOP series is back (at least for one post). Thing #22 is: The more you do it the better you get at it. Yes, it’s obvious, but it goes a little deeper.  The reason I’ve chosen this “thing” is because I have been and continue to be working very hard to produce art for a solo show coming up next month.  For almost a year I’ve kept an aggressive schedule of putting paint to canvas. I’ve been keeping count of my paintings while keeping my eye on the calendar. There have been some dogs in there, but in general I feel the quality of my work has improved. My confidence has been booste

I just completely updated the look of my web site to a cleaner, simpler, more "now-ish" design. Please go take a look: http://www.montrealartist.com/ I also started to look more seriously at using social media as a way of getting my work "out there". I created accounts specifically for my artwork on Twitter and Pinterest: Twitter: http://twitter.com/DavidKelavey Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/montrealartist/ I'd be interested in hearing any comments/advice from anyone that has used these sites for their art. I'm still plugging my work on Facebook - if you haven't already, please head over and take a look: http://www.facebook.com/Mon

If you're around Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada in the next few weeks I have a painting on show as part of the Society of Canadian Artists Members' Show. It's at the Civic Center, 399 The West Mall from today until August 27. The reception's on Sunday July 27th from 2pm - 4pm (but I won't be there because I'll be on a beach in Maine!).

Happy Birthday
Happy birthday to you, David, all the best! :)
Fantastic works.. Love your style,,, I like to be obstinate and not adopt a style, its the rebel in me, but not without a price. None-the-less, I love experiencing new styles from impressionism to realism.  Keep up the fantastic work. Hello from Oz.  ;) (Wink) 
 No news from D.K. What's going on for you?
 Hello David! I guess that you have been ordered a lot of paintings,  and too busy to let some on DA ...

Party HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
