This was done in front of a mirror, no picture used.  It took about 4+ hours to paint.

Riso Mural on a Food cart truck.

I’ve been hired to paint a mural on a future food cart Organic juice truck… I started a few days ago and am almost finished with one side. The other side is going to be an underwater Ocean scene. Picture is of work in progress.

Hump Night: An Art Social

Always on the last Wednesday of the month

February 27, 2013    7pm until midnight

Alexeisia’s Center for Arts
1319 SE MLK Jr. Blvd
Portland, ORCreative Collaborations will be providing musical entertainment by some of Portland’s hottest musicians and DJs.   This month we are featuring:    DJ Mom,    Albino Gorilla,  Daytrip to logos, Low Key.THE MAIN EVENT: The construction of our first collective art installation. During this next event we are building a pyramid with a 4 foot wide base that will reach 8 feet into the sky. We will be inviting several painters from our community to collaborate on one theme and each artist will be live-painting one panel of the pyramid during the night.One or more new installation pieces will be created at each Hump Night: An Art Social. Once finished, this piece and any following will be used during the dry months to decorate our street fair, Hump Day.
If you have ideas, supplies to donate, or any other input on these projects please let us know.
Other, more casual creative activities will be taking place as well. These activities are open for anyone to participate, hopefully facilitating community engagement and helping our community get to know each other. One game that we have lined up is called “Mash Up”. This consists of one piece of paper and one pen. The paper is passed from person to person each, getting a chance to “add to” the doodle/drawings of the prior participants. Eventually when the page fills up, the artwork is finished and we have one collaborative piece of artwork that countless individuals shared in creating. We haven’t quite nailed down what we will do with the finished drawings so suggestions are welcome here as well.
