Back in the Saddle...

I know, I know! I haven't posted anything here since I got back from Vegas - which was Saturday, Jan 24th. We had a great time with our fabulous Reno artist friends who are in the Greetings from Nada Motel show at the Barrick Museum at UNLV. I still haven't downloaded the photos yet but that's coming soon, very soon.
In the meantime, enjoy this video that Chad Sorg put together about installing the show. The woman in red in it is Dianna Sion Callendar, a wonderful artist and great person. I think she's the only one that isn't IDed.

Vegas, Baby

OK... tomorrow we leave for Las Vegas! Should be a fun trip and another great time with those nutty, wonderful, not to mention talented Reno artists. I'm looking forward to our artists' reception on Friday night at the Barrick Museum.
But before that, tune in to KXJZ (90.9 fm) on Thursday between 2 and 3 pm for an interview that Chad Sorg and I will do with Jeffery Callison on his Insight show! If you can't get to a radio then, you can check out their website for a podcast HERE.
I'm really looking forward to see the work of the other artists and am pleased as punch to be in a show with folks like this. I'll bring back photos to post here later.... and wish me luck on the wheel of fortune machine, those light boxes aren't cheap!

Greetings from Nada Motel 09

Spent most of the day yesterday driving up to Reno to deliver my art to Greetings from Nada Motel mastermind Chad Sorg. I also stopped in at the Art Museum there because I had read that they had some Joan Mitchell and Lee Krasner work on display. Both Mitchell and Krasner were underrated Abstract Expressionist artists. I especially like Mitchell's work and think that one day I will write a play based on her life. But come to find out they only had one painting by each. BOOOOOOOO
Just finished a little video about the show in Vegas next week

Strange Signs

We've probably all seen those crazy signs that have double meanings, either by intention or lack of attention. My friend Nancy took an amazing trip to Patagonia during the holiday season and she send me a link to her photos. She's a runner who's competed in many marathons, but I'm guessing that running in glacier territory was a new experience for her!
There was one there that I just couldn't figure out. It's pictured above. So let's have some fun with it. The reader who posts the best caption for this will win an 8 x 10" print of any of my work that's pictured 0n either my website, my fine arts American web portal, or on the flickr site. Ready, set go......

My New Doggie Friend

Hi.. this is Crash the dog, I'm blogging now because Mom just left me in the studio to do something outside. I can't believe she didn't post this great photo of me in my Santa hat at Christmas time. But before I started this I went looking for other blogs by dogs and found this great one called Nooter the Dog.
Poor Nooter was having some intestinal issues so I posted a quick tip on how to deal with the problem. The only time it happened to me was about 5 years ago when I didn't chew up all of that toy and it got stuck and I had to have that icky operation. Uh-oh, I see her walking back here, gotta go....

Music for Peace

Just got my email newsletter from the Capital Film Arts Alliance folks here in Sacramento and one of the items is about how a local filmmaker (who has had films at Sundance) is involved in this project to use music and film to bring peace to the world!
