Hello friends and collectors……..
The Patron corporation (yes—the Tequila folks) is producing a national holiday art project that will benefit one non-profit art organization in each of four major U.S. cities; Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. I had the honor of being selected by Patron as one of seven artists from each organization to create artwork in a downtown storefront, in view of public passersby. Creation of the artwork was filmed, with time-lapse videos available on YouTube. Artworks made in the temporary storefront studios are being auctioned by Patron on E-bay with all proceeds (plus an additional donation from Patron) going to the non-profit art organizations.
Sale of my artwork through the Patron auction will benefit the Artists Guild of San Francisco of which I have been a member for over 15 years. The Guild has been key in my success as a professional artist; I would very much appreciate you supporting this excellent organization by bidding on the wall sculpture shown above (steel, about 26 inches tall).
Please check out the auction site at: www.eliminateregifting.com
Due to unfortunate difficulties, video of me creating the artwork is not available, but many other interesting videos of artists working on this project are available at: Patron Project 2011
Thanks for your time, attention and support.
Happy New Year!
