You're Invited

We are having a party at my Studio/ home on Sunday Feb. 14th, 2010 at 3pm. There will be food from 3-5pm, provided by my wife and Blair Miles of In Blair's Kitchen . Thank you both! My newest series Native 149 will be on display as well as my public installation. I will also, have screenprinted copper plates and scupltures, all of which are in the Native series.

Also, thank you to my neighbors Charlie and Rachel for commisioning a painting form me this morning. They requested a piece similar to my Petal Wars series of 2006. They have been wanting one for quite a while. I am glad to be working on a painting for their lovely home.

Also, thanks to Tom, who is at this moment working on my new website. Thank you man looks great so far!

Well, I must get back to work. It is a very busy week!

Synergy- Cloud Rain

And the Earth said to the cloud "Rain." And so the cloud rained. Sometimes you just have to stop and listen. What is it saying to you. I'm pretty sure I heard it loud and clear today, "Artist make art." And, so it began...

I have been playing around with the Native 149 series on the computer. Taking my oil paintings and manipulating them. However, sometimes, what you intended to do gives rise to something even more creative and inventive. So here I am now on the phone with my friend a machinist and prototype maker trying to figure out how to etch or emboss my ideas on to an aluminum sheet!

As a side bar I find it ironic that I used to work with aluminum in my last career as an airplane mechanic.

I gotta go, he can help me so I'm off to the shop. Wish me luck. And, here's to alchemy!
