WeMerge / "Ascension" [full]

18x24 Ink on Watercolor Paper

Here is a full shot of Ascension. Even though my work is automatically copyrighted, I put that designator there to remind people not to steal.

Also, Renda Writer, Chief Editor of WeMerge Magazine is putting this piece in the Who's Next Gallery of the upcoming issue, out September 1st!

Stage84 / "Live Art" - Carlos Solano

On Wednesday I went to my first WeMerge Wednesdays event, held once a month, at Stage84 in Davie. It was AWESOME. Carlos Solano was there giving us some live painting as seen above. There was also a spoken poet by the name of Deborah Magdalena, stand up comedian Pam Bruno, and photography by Rabid Rabbit Studio.

Two young musicians and a father did some covers that were phenomenal. I was taking photos of Carlos when they started a cover of Metallica, and I heard the badass vocals. I turn around and the dude singing is FIFTEEN! The bassist is around the same age. I spoke with the singer/lead guitars father, and gave them some t-shirts. I will be trying to work with them in the future.

Dixie Cups / "Schacknow"

"Schacknow Gallery"

The opening reception for the Pen & thInk show was interesting. We had a good mix of wine [served in Dixie cups], belly-dancing, inappropriate stand up, and Chinese food. I doubt I will ever have another opening reception quite like this one. The picture above is my setup; complete with paper labels.
