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.
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.
I didn't know Curtis Otto all that well but I did know him well enough to be art pals even in the little time I knew him. Always stopped and talked art at whatever shows he may of been doing and talked about doing an art for art trade. Yes he was very interested but didn't transpire until one day after taking down a show and driving home on E street did I stop at Otto's house. Can't help but miss it, paintings everywhere outside the front of house, garage doors wide open. So I stopped and got his attention and said come check out this. Showed him two bins full of sculptures in the back of my truck, he said "bring em in". So we did, he picked through a bunch and found two he liked and set aside. Now for me to try and decide on a painting. If you've never been inside his house it was completely full of paintings, paintings EVERYWHERE! I knew he had good stuff stashed in the garage and asked if we could check that out, so we did. That's where I found this painting and asked how much, he said he didn't want to sell, maybe something to the effect it wasn't done. So we brought it back in the house and put with all the others. He kept raising the price where I had to say hey wait a minute, so in the end he ended up with the two copper sculptures I had made & I ended up with this kick ass painting. He said to me he liked to "time stamp" stuff, obviously so in alot of his paintings and that's what he said he liked about my stuff, a time in space & place. Rock on my artist friend. Paint that wild ass painting wherever you maybe.Read More
