It's up!

Here is a picture of my skateboard at the show, courtesy of my artist friend Nicole.  These were taken opening night.  I have not been able to stop by the gallery to take a peak but the photos are awesome.  Many minds and talents have come together from pretty different points of view.  I am really intrigued by the fish design next to mine, sort of upstaging me.

skate deck

Here is a photo of my deck when I thought it was done. I took it to school with me and ended up working on it over my lunch period. I think it is much more resolved now.

The opening reception will be held on June 19th, 2009 from7-10 p.m. at the Henri & Odette Gallery in downtown Las Vegas.

Right now I have a blank wooden skate deck sitting in my bedroom, just waiting to get painted!!!
I will post.

Flora, Fauna and Maryweather

I started this painting about eight years ago...yes 8! I was taking a painting class at PCC with Rebecca Morris, one of my favorite professors ever, and I did this one on my own. I dug it up out of my closet and decided to finish it two weeks ago.

Side note....come see my show at City of the World next month on First Friday! I will be in the main room.


Imagine a journey, having a beginning, middle and end. This one would be titled, "Where I was." There were so many stages to this piece I can't even begin to explain. It started as a pen drawing I did one First Friday. If you saw me hunched over a pad of paper doodling, this is what I was up to :) I can't stop having the urge to finish everything with gold paint....side effects of living in Las Vegas?
