Finishing up Bloody Work

Happy Halloween!!!

A handy hangar that lets me dry and reuse my Viva paper towels. I reuse them once or twice, or until they become hard and crusty. You can get a variety of unique hangars at The Container Store.

A Thought

Art is simple.
And art is hard.

Tribute to Kazu

I am participating in the Tribute to Kazu Project.

Kazu Sano was a great person and he will be missed. Students are invited to participate in this project dedicated to Kazu and all works will hang permanently in 540 Powell street, the Academy of Art University building in San Francisco. The last of the paintings are being collected and soon the art will be hung. Click on the link above to view all the artworks. All art is 4 x 4 inches in size.

Here is my piece- It is titled "A New Way," and the medium is acrylic on canvas. Click here to read my post on the Tribute to Kazu blog.

I forgot to make a post about this.

Thanks Juxtapoz for the feature! It was a great surprise.

Witches of Wonder

I should have posted this sooner, but if you don't have plans tomorrow, the opening reception for "Witches of Wonder" at Big Umbrella Studios is tomorrow night!

Artwork featured above is by Helice Wen

The postcard says that the opening starts at 6 pm, but the website says that it starts at 7 pm, so arrive sometime around that time. Food, drinks, and art, until 11 pm. The duration of the exhibit is until November 11. For more details on the show, click here.

Canvas Carrier

I am grateful for my wet canvas carrier. Although I have not used it in a couple years, it came in use a couple days ago!

Stretching my own canvas means that I normally do not install a support bar (unless the canvass is long), and a support bar serves as a good handle in addition to keeping the frame bars from warping.

I am working on a pretty large painting, about 42 inches height, and needed to transport it by foot 1.2 miles, through the wind and hills of San Francisco. I thought about taking the bus, but was worried about crowds and other people on the bus potentially damaging my painting. Taxis are expensive. It took me a while before I realized I still had the wet canvas carrier stashed somewhere.

This thing can be pretty handy from time to time.

Beyond the Horizon

Juggling acrylic painting, oil painting, drawing, and other activities, there is just too much to do!

In the process of making a lot of stuff, and while painting, I was greeted with this pretty mini brush-stroke scenery.

I love it when art just happens.

There will be a new page added to the top menu, can't wait.
