Killer Krystal showing this Sat. in SF

This is my newest vixen, 'Killer Krystal', I used a reference pic shot by Dylan Maddux during a photo shoot we collaborated on with the lovely Krystal. She is painted on a 2ft x 3ft canvas with acrylic and is framed in a nice gold frame. I am donating this piece to the Hell's Belles Silent auction held at the 941 Gallery (Shooting Gallery's new gallery space). All proceeds from the auction are donated to the Bay Area's Women and Children Center. There is also a great derby race that takes place during the auction with hand made derby cars, as well as great art on display. Details below...

The event will be held at 941Geary Gallery
Located at 941 Geary St. between Van Ness & Larkin- Look for the “Downtown Smog Test” signs. The smog place is now an art gallery. You can also enter from Myrtle Alley, through the roll up doors
Please note: This is NOT the gallery where it was held last year, but it’s just a few steps away from last year’s venue at 835 Larkin St. Trust us, you will not miss it!!

Doors open at 6:00 pm, races start at 8:00. If you plan to race a car, be sure you bring it early enough to check it in. If you are late, you won’t be able to race it—it’ll be displayed as a show car.

We’ve got some really great pieces in the Silent Art Auction this year. Remember, people tend to get pretty good deals at silent auctions and all the proceeds go to the Bay Area Women’s & Children’s Center in the Tenderloin. If you’ve never participated in a silent auction, don’t worry, we’ll show you how—it’s not difficult. You do need to bring a credit card though (or cash).

This year we’ve got work from Amandalynn, Ben Collison, Talbot DeVil, Josh Ellingson, Jeremy Fish, Frank Kozik, Michael Murphy, Jeremy Natividad, Jamie O'Keefe, TJ Rappel, Nicole Steen, Jeff Stevens, Sherwin Viray, Jay Watson and other surprise art stars….

The auction artwork will be up during the entire event so come and check it out and you might be going home with something cool.

Gramma and Poppa

Come along and grow old with me, the best is yet to be....

the words in this little poem have been words that have stuck with me for so long, they were painted on a little plaque hanging in my grandparents kitchen, where I spent so many days. Gramma and Poppa were the epitome of true love, and as my family got the news that Poppa had passed silently into the night this past Saturday, September 18th, 2010, less than two months after my Gramma had passed on, we all knew deep in our hearts that they are finally at peace, resting forever in eternal love. I am so lucky to have been a part of such wonderful, caring and loving people, and though I will miss them forever, I am happy that they are together as they deserve to be, and I will do my best to pass on all that they have taught me about life, love and family. 
Rest peacefully Gramma and Poppa

Killer Krystal sketch

This is my newest Vicious Vixen, the lovely Krystal. I chose this image from a photo session with Dylan Maddux and Krystal that was done with the Vicious Vixen theme in mind. I am titling the piece 'Killer Krystal' and am painting it in acrylic on gold leaf on canvas. The final piece will be on display at the end of September at the 941 Geary Gallery in SF.

Hat Lady Mural at Haight St Goorin

This is my newest project for Goorin Bros. Steel, Reyes, and I have spent some late nights over the past week painting murals in the Goorin Hat Shop on Haight Street in SF. I did another fancy hat lady, which is a series of paintings I have been working on for the 'Art of Goorin' project.

Documentary on Amandalynn by Diego Rojas

 This documentary was done by friend, Diego Rojas, who I met while traveling in Patagonia this year. Diego and his crew were a great team to work with and did this film project together for a summer class.
