Illuxcon 2014 and Beyond


by Armand Cabrera

It has been a couple of weeks since I've posted anything here. My apologies, my schedule has interfered with my normal writing schedule. Last week I was in Allentown PA for the Imaginative show Illuxcon at the Allentown Museum. Before that I was getting everything ready for the show.

The show was very successful for me and I sold five paintings and a number of prints. I was also commissioned to do a large painting (3 x 5 feet) by the Illuxcon committee which was shown for the first time at the show. I had lots of positive feedback on my imaginative work and my idea to mix imaginative work with my plein air paintings appears to be paying off. People seemed to really like the way the work looked. I also received some magazine and book offers that may turn into some interesting work down the line.


This next week I will be in southern Colorado plein air painting with a friend so no substantial posts for another week. I should be back to normal and posting again by the 12th of Oct.
