Thank You Greenwave!

This year’s 5th Annual Concealed Revealed Art Auction brought in a record amount of funds raised for the YWCA Battered Women Task Force, over $6,000!
The Greenwave Electric, Inc. guys showed up in full force to support the charity, and set off quite a bidding war. They ended up as highest bidders on my painting, Sun Valley. I think that piece will be the perfect fit for their office – they are all about being environmentally friendly with their electrical services business.

The Perfect Day for an Art Fair

Gee whiz, I don’t think a person could possibly ask for a more beautiful day than Sunday at Lawrence Art in the Park! The sun was warm and bright, and people were out in the masses taking in the rays and enjoying the artwork.

I’m not sure what the other artists experienced, but I thought the turnout was great! My booth was hopping, with people streaming in and out all day. I know, this photo doesn’t exactly show the crowd . . . Brandon said it was one of the few times he was able to snap a shot without lots of  people in the way, passing by on the sidewalk in front of my booth.

In the end, I sold two pieces and got a couple of contacts for potential commission work lined up. It turned out to be a pretty successful Sunday!

An Art Collaboration

I am in the process of creating a colossal 8′ by 4′ piece of artwork to hang in the waiting room of the Family Service and Guidance Center’s new Child & Family Academy building.

This piece of artwork will be comprised of over 35 smaller plexiglass paintings created by myself and some of the children and associates of the center. The process began with a painting session for the children where I taught them my painting style. That night was so successful, we decided to do another class for Family Service and Guidance Center staff members to paint over their lunch break.

After all of the plexiglass panels had been created, I starting working with Josh Pattie to assemble the painting. And with Mike at Creative Signs on the donor panels that will be surrounding the artwork.

Want to check it out? Stop by the ribbon cutting on Wednesday, April 16th starting at 4pm to celebrate the opening of the new facility and get a first look at my largest piece of art to date!
