Found Him!

I've been looking for months for my next sculpture makeover and today I finally found him. I was on the fence at first. It was a little more than I wanted to spend. But the woman at the Second Sunday flea market had such a  sweet vibe that I just couldn't pass him up. I don't know how he'll transform but I'm looking forward to it!

Today's find sitting in front of my first (and only other) remake. 

It's Second Saturday!

Come visit me tonight at my new studio at Kennedy Gallery on the corner of 20th and L. There will be music by Even Numbers and a digital artist with an interactive display out front on our patio. Inside, there are more than 20 artists on three floors as well as the pop art show which features an original Andy Warhol!

I'll be in the lower west studio from 2 pm to 10 pm  (red door to the right of the stairs). Hope to see you there!

See that red door to the right of the stairs? That's where you'll find me!

November 12th – december 3rd

Better late than never! With all the after-election hubbub, I completely forgot to post this exhibit. It up until December, though. Stop in and pick up a little piece of art to give as a gift this season... or maybe just keep it all to yourself. Lots of talented artists to appeal to diverse tastes in this exhibit. 

One of three pieces in this exhibit. Each are 2" x 2" x .5" mixed media on cradled wood that has a light texture.

Hey Artists... Who's in?

TAROT CARDS

Tarot Cards are full of great symbolism and imagery, and you can't ask for more in terms of "open to interpretation." Even the names of the cards are inspiring: Queen of Wands, The Fool, The Magician. 

This isn't quite a "Call for Artists" yet, however, my idea is to gather a number of artists who are interested in creating a piece based on Tarot. The theme of your piece would be inspired by a particular card, or cards, of your choosing. The size is to be determined (might be open, might specified) but larger than card size would likely be encouraged.

The date and location of the show are to be determined, however, I am shooting for early to mid 2017. Once I have a potential list of participants (no obligation at this stage), I'll be able to start compiling specifics. 

If interested, post a comment or shoot me an email. Hope to hear from you soon!

P.S.: This is a work in progress that was loosely based on Queen of Wands, but I'll likely start a new piece(s) if the show takes off.

Work in progress... Queen of Wands.
