Art Carts on Hawthorne


"Trailer Trash"

Made this for a little art cart show happening this Saturday,

September 13th from 11am to 7pm
  at SE 50th & Hawthorne

Stephanie Brockway and I have teamed up to sell our salvage art 
out of a borrowed vintage trailer
(Thank you Shelly Caldwell!)



We've loaded up our art and we are ready to roll!

She'll have Winnebago Boy and I'll bring a few other surprises.


Gary Houston even made a poster for us!

The Opening of our Mann/Bone Show at Scandals was the highlight of my Summer!

The Mann showed up at my house wearing a gold sequined dress
that she had stayed up all night working on. 

She had no idea I was making gold wings.

We were a match made in Heaven.

We arrived downtown early to check out the First Thursday Art Walk in the Pearl
before heading to our opening at Scandals.

Our friend Stephanie Brockway was selling on the street and took these pix of us:





For one night at least,

we were Golden.






Tap This!

Baring my process


"Dare to be Bare"

Mixed metal collage on upholstery fabric with green fur and bottle caps

For my July Show at Scandals with Sylvia Mann

Inspired by some NUDE PHOTOS I found of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

I figured a male nude would be a good fit for my show at a gay bar.

I started with a sketch


Then scavenged my scrap pile for the right patinas


Like creating my own puzzle, assembling the pieces is the fun part


Each piece is hammered, shaped and sanded before I glue and nail it down.


I added this little pun as an inside joke.



 Hope to see you all at Scandals!

In Celebration of Dragon Boating


"Dragon Racer" Acrylic on wood with bottle caps
 

Dragon boat racing is a team paddling water-sport which has its roots in an ancient folk ritual of contending villagers, held for over 2000 years throughout southern China. While competition has taken place annually for more than 20 centuries as part of religious ceremonies and folk customs, dragon boat racing has emerged in modern times as an international sport, beginning in Hong Kong in 1976. But the history of dragon boats in competition reaches as far back as the same era as the original games of Olympia in ancient Greece. Held on the Willamette River near the Hawthorne Bridge, the races feature exciting four-team heats held every nine minutes. More than 80 different teams – local, national and international – compete in boats graciously provided through the Portland-Kaohsiung Sister City Association. 

Show your support by bringing your friends and family out for a fun day at the races;
always the first full weekend in June.

I thought it would be fun to organize a dragon boat art show
to celebrate this colorful and exciting tradition.
With a little help from my friends, we pulled it off!


Artists who participated in the Group Show Included:

Alea Bone  “Dragon-Racer”
