Another Great Idea!

Small piece that went to SF. It's acrylic on sheetrock. The frame is made of door trim that came from a wall we tore down between our living room and kitchen. great stuff!

Heather, Coco and I delivered all my artwork to SFMOMA's Artists Gallery on Monday. It was raining, but it went without a hitch. The last few weeks have been a bear trying to get it all done: painting, framing .....

The reception is in January 2010 so I have a few weeks to clean up what the sunami left behind in the studio, watch a few episodes of Mad Men and be a father and husband. If you're in the area, hope you can stop by. I'll be posting the majority of the pieces on my Facebook page and website later.

This is the 6 footer, "A Temporary Paradise."

Getting Close

Delivery to Fort Mason is this Monday so it's going to be a rough weekend tying up all loose ends. Here are some pieces that I feel pretty good about. If you're in the Bay Area (San Francisco) on January the 7th, please stop by for the reception, Here's a link to SFMOMA's Artists Gallery.

Last One!

This is a 40 x 50 inch painting that I started the other day. With delivery next Monday, I had to try and finish this before Friday. Saturday I'll be finalizing all the work and getting it ready for packing. I'll have to get them all photographed this week too. Lots to do!

Maybe...Maybe Not!

Tonight was freakin COLD! They say it's supposed to get down in the 20's. Well, all I can say is tennis shoes aren't a great barrier from cold cement. I think I'm done with the 6 footer that I've been working on, but I'll have to live with it for a few days.

Here's a quick piece of video I shot while working on it.

Paintings in Progress

A couple weeks to delivery and I'm still pluggin' away. A few pieces are finished, but there's a ton of smaller work that still need to be mount on panels. Looks like this weekend will be spent with my chop saw and a lot of coffee!

Here's a detail shot of the Manila Folder!

Damn it's cold!

It's been really cold these last few days. So much so I had to finally break out the thermals. This guys chillin'!
