"Towering Cumulus Humorous"








I received an invite by the

lovely ladies at Parlor Gallery in

Asbury Park to participate in

their latest show, "Fun is the

Law" which opens March 10th.

The focus of the show is 'toys,

skate decks, and fun-filled art'.

I thought a deck would be a

nice challenge and had a vision

for a spindly legged character.

If you're in the Asbury Park, NJ

area March 10th, it's going to

be a great show and I'd love

to see you there. For details

Well, Would You Look at That...

I made a leap a couple months ago and actually went out into the great unknown in hopes of trying to promote myself. Ed and I went to Asbury Park as it's a hotbed of galleries and shops. In a lovely series of events we were able to sit down and meet Jenn at Parlor Gallery. What a lovely gal. Actually everyone we meet in Asbury is gracious and kind. Odd for New Jersey. Maybe it's the ocean air that relaxes people.

So Jenn at Parlor Gallery asked Ed and I to join in their Holiday Art Show opening up next week, Friday, December 11th at 7pm. How cool is that? All the art is going to be specially priced under $500 and there'll be a DJ and food and drinks and Ed and I :D

This is the largest piece that I've done to date. A whopping 11" x 11", it's called "A Cold Day"

If you are anywhere in the area stop by, say hello, see some art, buy some art and I'm sure you'll fall in love with Asbury Park (if you haven't already).

Asbury Park is a lovely place...

for zombies. And for artists. And for people too. Lovely, just lovely!

I am referring to the NJ Zombie Walk that was held this past Saturday in Asbury Park along with some gallery show openings and general good times. Ed and I are very excited by our new friends over at Parlor Gallery and Asbury Lanes and went out Saturday to support them. At first we needed to do a drive by of the boardwalk to take in all the zombie walking. Such an awesome site to see bloodied faces basking in the dying light of a great day at the seashore. You don't get these images from other zombie walks and apparantly their sites are firmly set on setting the record next year, so watch out Monroeville!

Then it was a quick walk over to Shelter Home which is my new favorite shop. Reminiscent of Tokyo shops and every good thing I've ever seen on the internet, it also has two lovely owners (Scott and Gene) and their beautiful standard poodles, Diego (pure black) and Lucia (pure white). Seems I may have seen these guys running around Washington Square Park back in my NYU days as well. Walking to and from classes I loved it when the black and white poodles were romping around the doggie section of the park. After telling Scott this, he said he had lived in the Washington Square Park area and has always had a black and a white standard poodle! Love it when things work out...

Across the street was Parlor Gallery and their newest show, ART Bloc. What a great show! Honestly haven't seen such great art from an array of artists in...well...in a long, long time. And only one week ago we had wandered into Shelter Home, talked with Scott and Gene who introduced us to Jenn who runs Parlor. Jenn also organizes some great events over at Asbury Lanes and we'll be talking with her very soon about showing some of our work there.

Small world, wonderful sights, ocean breezes and all 30 minutes from our house.
