Since I’ve been working on some paintings recently, I thought I would use them as updates so you can see what I’ve been up to. This painting is part of the star series and is inspired by that old Sinatra song ” would you like to swing on a star, carry moon beams home in a jar and be better off than you are, etc…”
Next week will be my first haiku comic painting and then I’ll probably get back to normal…maybe. It’s been so nice to get messy for a change. I’m enjoying translating the comic, which is primarily done with a wacom in photoshop, to paint on canvas. I’ll most likely go back and forth between the two mediums depending on my mood. Hope that’s cool with you readers.
So, the Jim Morey – Nothin but Love Party at the Garage was amazing. We had a great turn out and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun and dig the wacky going-ons. Jim and I are both really inspired and would like to push the concept further for future shows. If only we could find a contortionist… Hey if you know any interesting performance artists / circus freaks send em our way.
I promised I’d take photos and I did. I also stole some from journalist Leigh Armstrong of TBT who covered the event. Shh…don’t tell him. Oh wait, he reads this. :O Sorry Leigh! Pwease don’t sue me! More of Leigh’s pics of the event here.
