Recently I was asked to paint a skateboard that will be auctioned off to benefit the Manchester, Vermont Skatepark! It is exciting to be involved with a project that will benefit the youngsters, and young of heart, in Vermont. I whipped up this piece using spray paint, acryl-gouache and paint markers. I wanted to create a piece that was extra spontaneous with lots of movement. Right now it is on display at Arson until August 19th. After that they will be displayed at Bonnet & Main until August 25th (5pm to 7:30pm) where the final day of the Auction will take place. I’m sure any out-of-towners could bid by contacting Arson.
I am very honored to be invited to show my art at The Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT! I am planning on showing several new paintings that have not been seen anywhere, including the internet! It was lots of fun coming up with a name for this one too.
Show opens February, 1st 2019 for First Friday. http://cal-vt.org/
