I had a very exciting e-mail from the Agora Gallery in Chelsea, New York offering representation. Its the kind of representation that you pay for so in my current financial stall, I won't be taking up the offer just yet but how flattering. They saw my work on the Internet and liked it enough to consider putting it in their Gallery. Something for the future I hope.

The latter part of 2011 was a bit of a roller coaster, creation and sales were a bit erratic, I just wasn't committed, as my personal life took a tumble. However newly single and newly resolved to make 2012 my artistic year - here we go!

I wont say what my first thoughts were when he entered to the applause of the selected guests but put it this way, he would be the kind of man that I would see across a crowded bar and avoid like the plague. Which is exactly what I did at his first private view that I attended. His work sells for thousands and at both views, the pieces were gone within minutes.
Meeting him taught me a lesson. It would be so easy to loose the person that you are once you begin to be admired for your work. It would be easy to get caught up in the fame and forget that it is all about the work. Fabian's Paintings are rich and vibrant, glamorous and seductive and that is the image he gives when he steps into the limelight but behind the mask is a man who is very passionate about his work and I suspect if the glory were removed tomorrow, it wouldn't alter his course an inch.
