I will be exhibiting these three paintings in the art tent at the first ever Pallet Fest in the Denver Sculpture Park (you know those weird dancing stick figure sculptures? Over there). It’s a festival about upcycling, and I painted these on wood panels I made from pallet wood. The festival is this coming weekend, October 11 and 12. If you’re in the area, stop by and check it out.

What I’m Working on, September 2014:
1. Some collage work which is mostly stupid, but makes me happy.
2. An album cover for a local band. This is a teeny preview, but expect to see the finished piece by the end of next month.
3. A commissioned portrait in acrylic.
I’m cutting up pieces of paper, interpreting music visually and arranging pigment suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion into forms that may remind viewers of a human face.

I made my own version of Paul Gaugin’s Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? And this is what happened. If it isn’t obvious, I took inspiration from my new surroundings for the landscape as well as some of the figures.
Ew, there’s Visser in my Gaugin!
