Group show in SF and SJ! And a mural!

Howdy and happy summer!

I have work in two big group shows that are opening this Saturday, July 14: "Myth" at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, and "Exquisite Corpse" at Kaleid Gallery in San Jose. I'm so excited about each of these shows - there are a ton of really high-quality pieces!

"Cardinal Sinners" - acrylic on wood, 2012

Above is my piece for "Myth", and here is a link for more info on my piece and the show.

Also, I just finished a mural in downtown San Jose! It's on North 1st Street between Santa Clara and St. John, and is a version of my painting "Moon Rabbits".

I thought I was done when this pic was taken, but afterwards I went back and added moonlight to the grass and highlighted the rabbits a bit more. I need to go and take photos of the finished mural! It took me 25 hours of painting (I worked really fast - I usually am a slowpoke painter, so I really had to stretch myself here!)

The mural was commissioned by San Jose's downtown association. A lot of public art is going up in San Jose right now with the art box project and hopefully more murals in the works. Yay! My vision is to see a mural brightening every building!
