PlEIN AIR SF OPENING PARTY!
Come join me at Farley's in Potrero Hill to celebrate the opening of the complete Plein Air SF series, all in one place for the first time. There will be wine, conversation and stories about painting adventures. Find more details in the facebook event here.
Here are some shots of props in action for the San Francisco Mime Troupe's summer show, "Schooled." Visibility, stylization and durability were my priorities in how I built them. See "Schooled" in a park near you this summer!
This week is my last one working at a small daycare where I have been for the last year and a half. To show my love for the kids, I made them each a dinosaur stuffed animal with a different pattern of cloth suited to their interests and personality. Because every kid needs at least one weird, random handicraft, right?
"War and Peace in Modern Dance" was originally conceived on a rainy day circa 2002 or 2003. Now that we are grown up and sophisticated (and also one of us has actually read Tolstoy's masterpiece), Genie and I finally decided to fully realize the potential of this piece, which can also be taken as a metaphor for the US's role in destabilizing the Middle East, OR our very own relationship as sisters while growing up. The stills below are from April 4th's "Literary Foolery Clown Cabaret" at Pianofight, San Francisco.
Plein air, or "full air," painting is a really great practice to start in the middle of an El Niño winter. It leads to lots of fun adventures, like sneaking into an abandoned Navy yard or getting stuck in the Stow Lake gazebo because it's raining and your paintings will be ruined if you leave. See below:

A new painting that just barely preceded the great Goblin King's death. A tribute to the amazing inspiration that is David Bowie!
