Coming Out (of the Box)

16 x 20 wood on wood on wood

" I like to think outside the box, but when I'm done thinking. . .
I get back in the box. " -Stephen Colbert

This is the largest of 6 pieces I recently completed for the Out of the Box II Show at People's Gallery. This is the most art I have worked on at the same time in a long time. It is good prep for my upcoming BEER Show with Chris H. at Amnesia Brewing in July. I just wish I could figure out a way to make art and still have a little time left over for sleep! I guess I just can't have it all!

From what I've seen posted so far, this is going to be a juicy show for those who admire mixed-media assemblage art. It's obviously one of my 'happy places'.

Show opens this Saturday!

30 + Portland Artists create 3-D work that extends past the frame
Reception: Saturday, May 19th. 5-9pm. 
Show runs May 19th – June 9th  
Peoples Art of Portland : 700 SW Fifth (3rd floor) People's is Suite 4005

This kind of art is best viewed in the 3-dimensional glory of reality,
but if you can't make it downtown,
here is a virtual preview of the 5 8x8s I also made for the show. . . 






( Yep, I said the 'P~word' )

Ars longa, vita brevis  ~ Art is long, Life is short
See it, Make it, Love it, Live it. 


  1. That was definitely NOT the worst of "those" words. Well-used.

  2. Your pieces are awesome! I love them all, but espeically the flaming heart. Hope to meet you at the show on Saturday night.
