Well, i have been working non stop it seems, not a lot of time to breathe let a lone time to eat whatever i conjure up in my little home. And on that note, I have been extremely productive and here is some new work that was in the last Octopi show. enjoy...my connection...isnt working well enough to post photos, lets see about tomorrow.
May 17th and 18th the Octopi Collective had a self titled show, "Octopi" in Sand City. The show went well with a variety of viewers attending the gallery show. This show had works created by, Taylor Hawthorne, Michelle Magdalena, Matthew Martin, Kelly Watson, Paul Van de Carr and Margo. The range of work are from, acrylics, sculpture, to encaustic painting, photography, and fabric. Any questions about the work, email, firstname.lastname@example.org

Well, I have had an extremely intense couple of weeks. It all started with the International Encaustic Artists Retreat 2008 during the end of April. My brain just has not been able to stop thinking about all the possibilities with wax. You will see in one of my pieces, my exploration and obsession of the almond shape. This past time at the retreat really made me think about me work and exploring into the unknown...exploring into the world where acrylics just cant take you. There has yet to be a medium I am able to show my obsession with shapes, color, and odd numbers, until I met encaustic. I am currently taking up a new hobby. Eating eggs. Since my show is in about 11 days or less...I will be eating a mass amount of eggs to complete my mini. minimal. obsession....hold on, title in process...
We have just 11 days until the Octopi Collective's self titled show, "Octopi" which is happening May 17 and 18. The Opening reception/ Party is at 460 Elder Street Door C in Sand City from 7 — 10, with wine pouring by Otter Cove Wines. There are six young artists showing, which I am one, I will be showing mostly my encaustic paintings about cephlapods. I hope you enjoy the two day show better come see it while it is up. I post images after the show.
