First off, I hope that your day is as beautiful and exploding with spring as it is here in Portland! New leaves, sun, rain, flowers everywhere, it’s beautiful. Friday’s show at Rotture was amazing! It’s always a pleasure to paint with: Beth, Matt and Hunter, and we had a great time! People were hanging out and taking photos of us, asking questions, ect. It’s so fun to paint live, because people get to see your process, and it’s sort of revealing for an artist. That, and it bridges that gap between live preformance and visual art. It’s good to see people, dancing around, acting silly, at an art show. Great times!
Gearing up for May’s huge slew of shows! It’s exciting and perhaps a bit daunting, when this time of the month comes around. (no, not that time) When I realize that I have a couple of weeks before the show week starts, and it allows me to hermit up in the studio and really concentrate. For my show at Coure Gallery, I am not doing a single piece on wood. Everything is on paper, either super huge, or super tiny. It’s a real challenge for me, since I am not used to it, but am loving the smoothness and delicate nature of the paper.
Here are some examples…and hope you all have a great day!
