All good things must come to an end. R Middleton abstract paintings that have been on display at various venues around town are coming home to the studio — 229 N. Hogan Street 32202 — for one last party. After that they’re going on tour, or into the Disney vault, or basically anywhere that’s out of my sight as I symbolically focus on the creation of new works for multiple upcoming shows in 2017. (Stay tuned for those announcements in the near future.) Wednesday, December 14 will be a great opportunity to see an extensive collection of works created during the last several years, in all their variety. Open studio 5:30-8:30 p.m. will be the best time to see the widest selection of my paintings currently available. If you would like to schedule another time to view the works, of if climbing stairs are an obstacle for you, I will happily make individual appointments.
