The other day I bought a map, and I’ve begun a project of recording the names and locations of artists with whom I’ve made art trades over the years. I’m thinking that this will become an art piece, an archive that can eventually be exhibited. Luckily I’ve managed to keep records of these activities, and hopefully one day the map will become an interesting object in itself.

Lets Make A Trade (completed). Long Series #130.
A few weeks ago I offered to trade a painting for another artist’s work. I was so happy with the results I decided to make another trade. I was glad to have another successful trade, and this painting is off to the UK to the artist David Manley.
Over the years I’ve put together a nice little collection, and many paintings are on my walls. Each year we rehang our collection, and it’s interesting to see how our taste and interests have changed. Most of the work we have is figurative or abstract, and lately I’ve been more interested in abstract or nonobjective art . We only have a couple landscapes, and a few paintings of flowers. Most of the work that we have is of modest scale, but we have works in many different media.
This is #130 from my Long Series, and it is 12×12 inches mixed media on paper. I would like to trade it for a work of roughly similar size, but I am open to interesting offers. Would you like to trade?
