Guess it’s been awhile since I’ve added to my log. Copper Quad copper skinning has been completed entire frame has been primed & painted. Copper skin have all been riveted together. Have experienced a few breakdowns due to the additional weight of the body. Two broken front spokes, wheels in for repairs. Then forward mounting bracket broke. No problem easy fix just need to beef up the weld, good to go! Arts Alive April 6, 6-9pm!
Cardboard skin for the Copper Quad you ask? Why yes, gives me time over time to contemplate whether I like the design I have in front of me. If something doesn’t work then tear it out and do something else. After all its only cardboard found in the dumpster across the street. Free 99 all dang day long!
Sometimes Art takes its time, in this case mine. Copper Quad recently had a Doc appt, a few minor things taken care of. Copper skinning has begun and is taking shape nicely. Stop by for Nov Arts Alive to see for yourself.
September ARTS ALIVE is a kayaked theme. I'll be showing the boat itself all rigged up ready to roll and lots of journal entries supplying the laughs.
Cinco de Mayo & ARTS ALIVE all rolled into one fun time. Octo Madness hit the streets and was a big hit, thank you all for the great coments. Feedback such as this continues to fuel my Artistic need to do Art every single dang day. Next up, functioning 'lectric geetar, copper body almost complete. Standby for more great Art!
Intent was to have the Octopus on full display be we ran into some technical electrical difficulties. Octo pends arm surgery scheduled for next week. Once surgery has been successfully completed by me then 3-4 weeks recovery time. Should be enough time for May Arts Alive. Stop on by and check out some new acrylic paintings I recently did.
Got the paints out and did some painting, nice. Feels good to be in that space even if only for a little bit. Painted out 18 new little nuggets all acrylic. All on display for April ARTS ALIVE - 2018, see you there.
I will be open for biz this month up till Christmas usually at studio by noon. If you have a certain time that works better for you please let me know and I will accomodate. Look for yellow "Open" sign.
Guess the word is out, still some questions on what the proptery at 2nd & C street old town Eureka is being used for. Tons of people showed, many blazing right past me to step inside the Shark Zone. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, some we chatted, some we drank beer others gone like the wind. I will be open around Thanksgiving and day after. Cash is King!
Yesterday was one of those days you only dream about. I wasn't or haven't been in search of a new studio, mine works just fine. But while out trying to locate some friends getting ready to head out on a year long artist painting adventure did they tell me about the art studios. I had no idea of what they were talking about but had inquired on the property in Old Town Eureka, too much for my wallet. Anyways the old Mendenhall property, (with all the honking geese) is now being converted into art studios. I was shown many and then was shown my future home. Looked pretty bad from outside but inside was perfect, nothing that a little TLC can't fix. So I made the call and met up with the landlord and sealed the deal. In looking back it makes total sense, I need to be accessible to the public and display my work while I work and not pay someone else a commission, win win! So hopefully in the next month or two I'll make the transition to my new C street studio! Thank you!
60 years is a long time to be open especially in the art world. For this Arts Alive showing I'll have Cowboy Roy on display . He's big, all copper and will take all the pictures you can handle. Stop in and see the show, it'll be a barn burner. ARTS ALIVE - Saturday, February 6, 6-9pm.
