So there has been much action in my life in and out of the studio. These past few days in the studio have been amazing and inspirational. I am real excited about my new work and I know you are too. So as i have told you all Phthalo and I are on a break, but that doesnt mean I still dont think about him. It is hard not to think about him when you live in Monterey. But i know it will be a good thing for my work to give us some space. So with that said I might have to start obsessing over a new hue, i have always thought Hookers Green was quite randy.
So here are a few shots of prepping canvas for the next piece. I am almost finished with the piece i showed you guys last time of the "lungs" I need to clean the edges.
O yes. now up next is an amazing group show of four local artist in Monterey. This opening reception was at the Alternative Cafe in Seaside. This was my first time there. It is a wonderful space great vibe and something Monterey kids like me need here. Alternative Cafe is making a difference in the community and they are creating such a positive and exciting feel here. Currently showing is Andrew Jackson, Justin DeVine, Jennifer Sullivan, and C.Love. Check their work out, it is an amazing show, all of the work is for sale.
dj Todd Prophet, playin' some sweet beats.
And now to relaxing Saturday, right? So below you will see the card i made for friend Markus Naerheim, if you are reading this, and you dont know what that thing is next to jellymarkus, well, Markus is a writer and thats his third novel he recently released, I suggest you get your hands and brain on a copy. This day was celebrating his birthday with drinks, food, and friends, and of course the ocean. Markus loves nature, here is a diptych of the ocean that is small so where ever he travels there it will be, it is titled, 'Nearhome'.
Markus and his brainy ladies...whats up with the surf?
After the boys came in from the water and the rest of the crew got to the spot, there was only one reoccurring question...does anyone have a bottle opener?
Wow, great thing the birthday boy was the only one to bring an opener...Happy Birthday! After all that commotion, i went for a stroll.
Well this last shot is my fav shot, i love the colors and the motion, and the composition isnt that bad.
Well all 'n' all Its been great. I think i am mostly procrastinating from organizing that needs to be done in the studio. I wish i had little gnomes that i could release from a glass Kerr jar and they would work on organizing, and I would supervise and direct their work while i drink apple cranberry juice and eat crackers.
