The Music and Art of Matthew C. Shuman presents ...
Creating at the Speed of Life
A journey of Music and Art by: Matthew C. Shuman
What is happening?
Good Sunday morning everyone ...
I arrived home this past Friday evening to find a very nice letter in my mailbox. This letter is from the Carroll County Arts Council for the State of Maryland. To my surprise, they selected my most recent drawing (#211 The Majestic Lion) to be displayed in their art gallery for their next exhibition January 17, 2022 - March 5, 2022. I am not quite sure how that is possible, but I am honored to say the very least. For those of you that have been following my drawing journey over the past few years, you know how much of a huge milestone this is for me. There is an opening reception and all. 😳
Pencil Pet Portrait Commissions and More ...
The holiday season is upon us and the pet portrait commission orders are steadily coming in. I currently have a waiting list of about 2 people, but still have time to complete orders by Christmas if you get them in soon. Email me for more information if you are interested in having something drawn. Here is my social media advertisement for even more information, examples, etc.
New Music ....
Many have been asking about new music. I am always working on new pieces ... it is finding the time to sit down in the studio and record them that is a challenge. I have two new pieces pretty much ready to record to add to my 6th album, "The Story of Life." With your help, we have crossed over 4.5 million streams across all digital music services. Not sure how that is possible, but I am forever grateful for your appreciation of my work and you inspire me to keep working at it to better myself.
I would like to take a moment to wish all of you and your family a truly blessed Thanksgiving. There is so much going on in all of our lives that often brings us down, but we all have many things to be thankful for at the end of the day. I am thankful for all of you. Stay tuned and I will be in touch.
A new one to add to my Ocean City, MD series. Trying to decide what OC landmark to draw next. Here is the Ocean City, MD Lifesaving Station Museum at the end of the boardwalk.
