Hand for a hand, Art show at Electric Umbrella

Last nights show was a success. BIG Thank you’s to everyone who came out to participate in my social experiment of trading for art. There was a delicious crowd of beautiful people, lots positive feedback, great conversations and exciting trade ideas. I am really pleased and so inspired. So again, thank you, thank you.

I am exhausted now, but looking forward to a homemade pizza dinner that I traded last night for a small painting of a pizza. Let’s the games begin…

Got Wood?

I wouldn’t really call what I am doing “woodworking” but I certainly have been handling a lot of wood lately.

Every piece of work for this up coming show, is made of old wood paneling, and other random pieces that were found on the property. With the help and tools of my pal and room mate, my goal is to complete this collection with all recycled materials.

It’s been good to stand up to some of my fears of using power tools. Why am I surprised that I still have all my fingers? Every time I learn how to do something new, over come the fear of fucking up, and succeed I am reminded that that applies to most of life. Dream big kiddos, because we really can accomplish great things when we put our minds to it, and let go of the fear of failure ( flailure )
