Gollywood Forever

The Hyaena Gallery reception on the 21st was a blast. It was a memorial art show of Gidget Gein's work.
I got this sweet guitar pick. I chose the pink one, because pink is the most awesome of course! Actually, I think I chose it because I don't own anything pink.... I'm tempted to use it to learn guitar (which I have in the works) but it's probably not the kind of pick you should play with. Collectable only

This was one of my favorite pieces in the show. This particular piece is sold but there are plenty still available.

Forgotten Saints

The art show at The Congregation of Forgotten Saints was amazing!

I based my piece on "Aberration ~ The Patron Saint of Heartache", a saint I made up. It's the biggest piece I've ever produced, and the last of giant work that I will tackle. I was happy with the end result, and others seemed to be happy with it too.

There was live painting done by Krys Sapp and Cam Rackam

Even Bill Shafer left his station at Hyaena Gallery to come out for the night!

Tom and Jeremy brought in a custom confessional booth for everyone to post their sins

And a few of us went to Pink's hot dogs after the show, even though it was raining...

Rob, Detra and I had the pleasure of seeing Coraline at the hollywood grove. We also had some meats and wine before the showing. I love the venue.. It was a full moon too.There's an old timey small gas pump station still standing outside of the farmer's market connected to the plaza. Nifty! I'll have to get more information on it when I have more time. And Detra likes the clock...

I love working with clay. I find myself picking up chunks of clay more often than pencils, as of late. The versatility makes for fun experiments. You can keep polymer hard by keeping it cold, or make it soft by warming it up with your hands. Sand it when its finished, and paint it however you desire. Magic Sculp is a lot easier to work with for standing pieces though. I've had many polymer sculptures melt to destruction in an oven...

Tonight the artists of Hyaena Gallery will be showing their Bettie Page tribute art. Reception starts at 8pm. I will be there helping out, seeing as I'm now the new intern thingy. And I also have a piece in the show ;)
