My art on bus stops

September 23, 2010 at 12:01 pm 1 comment

As you might recall, I entered 2 of my paintings into a competition to get my art displayed on local bus stops for a month. Both were selected, and now they’re up!

So of course I had to drive around town and take pictures of them.

Here’s the bus stop where my small (12×9″) painting “Pacheco Tree” is reproduced really HUGE! You can see every single brushstroke. Fun!

And “Satwiwa” is the featured painting at this bus stop. The guy sitting there seemed really confused by my taking photos of the bus stop. I explained that it was my art, but he didn’t seem to get it. Oh well.

The point of these bus-stop posters is to advertise the city’s annual street arts festival (October 2-3, 2010). Part of my prize was a free booth space at the festival. I had planned to participate, but too many problems cropped up so it turns out I’m not going to be in the festival after all.

But hey, I still got my art up on the bus stops. I think that’s pretty cool.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
