Moleskine Project #2

I am excited to be a part of this show with over 50 amazing artists from around the world! The show consists of pages taken out of artists' moleskine sketchbook. Many will be creating images on the front and back of the pages, so it is like two pieces in one. Custom frames for the exhibit will also be double sided to show off both sides. The Moleskine Project will be at Spoke Art in San Francisco. Make a note on your calendar and come check it out!Click on the image below for a list of participating artists:

A boston terrier and a tabby cat holding water guns from the 90's and wearing shutter shades, and in color! (click on the image for a larger view):

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

Remember the Opposites show at WonderlandSF Gallery?

Crest & Trough painting installation from July 2011

That was an awesome exhibit because artists continued their paintings past the borders onto the gallery wall. I had Crest & Trough on display the show went great!

Now, a year later, WonderlandSF is going to hold another exhibit just like that! The theme is "Something like Oz," featuring many amazing artists. I will be displaying my latest piece from the Concept series, 'Search Within.'
