Stories. I find a lot of personal authority in the telling and remembrance of them. Honoring the dreams, experiences and hopes through sharing them is one of the easiest ways we get to create our lives. The end of one year and the beginning of another is the best time to use the natural energy (up here in the Northern Hemisphere) of the dark, or inner experience to recollect, forgive, and expand in our awareness of our selves. As an artist, even more so that I would hope my sincerest efforts and affections are shared as thoughtfully and masterfully as possible.
It’s been an extremely mild winter in Santa Barbara, and I’ve spent much of it painting, animating paintings, learning how to merchandise contemporary art, and getting ready for the upcoming year. With all three of our projection mapped paintings, Nina and I started Mono Amor Gallery to share and sell prints, clothing, and all kinds of goodies we make with love.
Starting this week Nina and I will be at The Fonda theater in Hollywood Friday January 16, 2015 for the Gem and Jam Pre party with Random Rab, Thriftworks, Russ Liquid, Alex and Allyson Grey, Tribe13, and a whole lot of artists I love and have been inspired by for many years.
Then in February we’re headed out to Tucson with the Mono Amor Gallery for the Gem and Jam Festival Feb 6-8. I projection mapped the main stage last year and had a great time so we’re headed back this year with our projection mapped paintings. We’ll be at a lot of events coming up this year along the west coast.
