So much of my work is done in public, sometimes at a restaurant, sometimes on a street corner. Often times I meet very interesting people passing by. Everyone has a story, some have been artists in the past, some are trying to get into art, some are just interesting folks walking by. This evening I had a very interesting idea: What if they could take a little piece of my work with them?
Tonight I started a series of paintings that have an unlimited potential to bring a little happiness to the people I interact with. This series is called "One for the 'keep". As part of this project, I'll give a piece of work to someone who has taken an interest in what I do, this evening I gave a piece to the bartender(s) at Mojo's. I spent about 3 hours, painting 5 pieces and taking up space at the bar, I felt it necessary to share something more than the tips....so I left a small painting. I hope it brings them some joy. Who knows, maybe someday it will be worth something.
