THE GUERILLA SHOW AT ARC GALLERY
I love Arc and am happy to have two of my mixed media pieces (including Nest Egg) in their second annual Guerilla Show, which features all artwork under $300. The exhibition opens tomorrow night, and it is a bit unusual in that during the reception, artwork will be sold right off the wall. They have two pieces from each featured artist, so when the first piece sells, the second can take its place for the exhibition.
As if lots of reasonably priced, original artworks wasn't enough, they've also got
Tamalago Cafe vending tamales outside and of course the usual beverages inside.
Come check it out!

WOOD & WATER MURALS 2: I WANT TO BE...
I had the wonderful experience of creating the second of my Wood & Water Murals on December 2 at Koshland Park in San Francisco with students from CommunityGrows, a local garden education program.
The students range in age from 7 to 10 and are learning all about what happens when you plant a seed and then give it care and attention, so I thought it would be appropriate to have them each represented by a flower. In the center of their flower, they wrote something they want to be, and then they created their flower petals with their handprints. I loved that some said they wanted to be a doctor or a veterinarian and others said they want to be kind. I also loved the little boy who shouted, "A rich man!"
The video is in the works, and in the meantime, you can see the photos on the Wood & Water Facebook page.
INDIRECT MAIL GOES TO ASIA
Fear Not Indirect Mail takes participants' handwritten anti-fear messages, turns them into magnets, and places them on street signs, bus stops, etc., for someone else to discover. It can now be delivered by anyone with a digital camera and the desire to spread anti-fear messages in their community.
We've gotten a few images from our first Indirect Mail agent, and they are amazing. You can see more of her images from Thailand and Laos on the Fear Not website.
You can also sign up to be an Indirect Mail agent here.
