Art Walk November 2010

Art Walk November 2010

The ever-changing art walk seemed more subdued that normal this month.  However, I noticed drops in participation last fall as well.  I think people are less willing to bustle about in the windy downtown when the temperature drops below 55 degrees at night. But I did. And here is what I saw: There were at least three separate parking lots reserved for food trucks.  Some of the food truck parking lots had local radio stations and/or DJs playing music.  For…

Day 2 on “price less” piece

Day 2 on “price less” piece

Thank goodness this is a tiny piece – otherwise I don’t know if I’d have it done in 4 weeks.  I’m getting to work on it maybe 2 or 3 hours a week maximum…. very frustrating.   I think I want to have her sitting in a puddle in the rain – not sure how I’m going to work that out… (oh, and it isn’t just school that’s taking all that time… I’ve had two flat tires int he last…

Culver City art walk

Culver City art walk

On Saturday night Sam and I joined two friends (a fellow Pepperdine MBA student and his wife) and headed to Culver City.  We went to the Ethiopian restaurant that Sam and I had tried a few months back.  We didn’t remember from before, but the restaurant had actually purchased tables that were too small for the booths, creating a comical situation for our group.  The food was still good, though. Afterwards we walked down the street (Washington) to Thinkspace’s five…

Nick Ogawa

Nick Ogawa

Nick Ogawa is working on a new album, his third I think.   The first album was heavy on the cello, which I really liked.  The second went in a different direction (this was his “midnight vultures” kind of album I guess) that I didn’t like so much. Yesterday, Nick started posting songs from the new recordings on his web site.  These are a return to the cello sound that piqued my interest a few years ago.  Looking forward to…

price -less

price -less

I’m working on a small (5×7) painting for a show for low priced art at the Hive in December. This has taken a while because I’ve been distracted with schoolwork and computer problems… but I now have the initial wash done: Something doesn’t look right about that skull.  Although I had a model (clothed) pose for this, the original pose was with the hands limp in between the legs.  So – I had to sort of figure out how to…

Costumes? Yeah, I don’t do that either

Costumes? Yeah, I don’t do that either

A few weeks ago Layla Kilolu (a fellow Pepperdine MBA student) invited Sam and I to a show Layla was going to perform in.  A week before the show she reminded us that it was a costume show as it was on Halloween weekend. I don’t do costumes.  I don’t have any ethical/political reservations against it or anything of that nature; I just don’t feel comfortable dressing up in general, let alone pretending to be someone else.  Last year I…
