Beaches, boardwalk rollerskating, palm trees, endless traffic and high density smog: Here I come! Figuratively speaking, of course. I’m now a featured artist at 8 Limbs, a cool sewing/art studio/boutique in Echo Park. I spent this past week preparing some west-coast-bound schwag:
I also had to keep up with the action here in Austin. Luckily we had a streak of super warm weather and I got to work in our open air patio. This was both a blessing and a curse, because amidst the gentle blowing breezes and happily chirping birds, I had to listen to the incessant shrieks of my neighbor who is trying to remodel his house: “JUST GET THAT F’ING SH*T OUT OF HERE! OH GIVE ME AN F’ING BREAK!!” Below: art mounted on wood and drying, waiting to be sealed.
I reconfigured a little piece of art that I had designed a while ago and I really like the way it turned out. I mounted it on wood and added hooks to create a small jewelry/key rack. The quote is by ‘Abdu’l-Baha and says: When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.
