|Live Painting 11/03/2011|
Last Thursday morning, I got some devastating news about my dear friend Ryan passing away. Ryan was one of my best friends and it shook me up as to call out of my day job with my boss, who was understanding. After many phone calls and online communications with friends about what had happened, I realized I was also scheduled to paint my installation at No Egrets that evening. I channeled my energy and went through with my plans to freestyle a gigantic octopus, who would hold up the panels I had recently mounted with watercolors and illustrations for the show. It was the right decision seeing as what turned out was off the chain! Check it all out in this brand-spanking new time lapse video! The installation took about 3 hours but you can ride along here in just 3 minutes...
Here's a slew of pictures of the process AND the ONE-NIGHT EXHIBIT!
