I’m not sure where this one is going, which is not unusual for me, but I’ll let you know when we arrive.
I enjoy making gifs
I'll just let this excellent video by Steve Piasecki (Steve Pi) speak for itself.
It’s taken some wonderful time, and I’m happy with the final piece.

It seems a crew has formed from February’s heart collaboration! Our new project takes us to DADA bar, thanks to video artist Steve Pi. He invited us to collaborate on a Salvador Dali mural, upon which he will project video adaptations of various themes, including Dali paintings and his own unique sequences.
The mural is part of a larger show that opens Tuesday, April 24 at DADA, featuring killer oil paintings by Larry Spenler and Juan Manuel.
Dada bar launches new local-artist shows each month — these are some of the strongest bodies of work you’ll ever see, in a space that exerts enormous energy into putting original contemporary art in front of a smart audience. Think about it...the bar is called DADA, so you're going to get some unconventional, yet seriously world class artwork flowing across the bar's walls.
It’s also one hell of a cool joint — a great place to hang out and see some art.
Check them out!

A half dozen hand decorated eggs, seeking hidey holes today in San FranciscoRead More
Black marble egg, hand etched with a carbide scribe, then filled in with gold wax pigment.
This next piece is a real gem! The two-piece vessel is milled by hand from soapstone. I then applied black ink to the exterior and used a scribe to carefully scrape away the ink to reveal the stone.
Happy Spring 2018! Here is my very first egg of Ostara 2018. He will be placed somewhere in San Francisco today, where he may be discovered and find his way to a new home.
Each year I produce several eggs that I hide around San Francisco as part of a Spring ritual known as Ostara.
These are empty chicken eggshells, decorated with ink and broken car glass that I recovered from SF’s streets (owed to smash and grabs). The next step is to add a finding to the top, and then bust out my quil and ink to get into some detail work. I finish each egg with clearcoat, add some silk hanging chord, and they’re done!
today’s drop: SOMA!
Free Art Fridays take place around the globe as a means to share art with the public.
It’s the art anti-market — neither about money nor marketing.
While it may sound a bit corny, I got “paid” while experiencing making the piece. I certainly don’t need to collect my work, either! Let it live elsewhere...that’s actually more meaningful to me than anything.
Get it while can.
