Painting On Location at The Guitar House Workshop I'm spending most days painting at a luthier's (guitar maker's) shop in Grandview Ohio now. What started as an "on location" painting visit has turned into an ongoing artist residency. The Guitar House Workshop builds and repairs guitars, sells guitars and related stuff, and provides lessons in guitar, mandolin, banjo, voice and piano. And it is full of friendly, talented people. Since I'm working on a series of paintings about making music, the move feels right. I'm also helping the shop with inlay design for custom guitar headstocks (kind of cool). The shop is at 1423 Chambers Road, Columbus, OH, 43212 (between Northwest Blvd. and Northstar Rd.) and is open from 10:30 am until 8 pm or so Tuesday through Friday and 10:00 - 4:00 on Saturdays. The phone number at The Guitar House is 614-488-2477. You are welcome to stop in to say hello or just to look around. My easel and canvases are usually sitting out on the shop floor, even if I'm not there. This is not your average guitar shop. It's a little place with alot of heart. If you are lucky, you might get a free song or two from somebody who just happens to be hanging around. Photos etc. about working at The Guitar House Workshop are in the painting section of this site. For more information, visit www.guitarhouse workshop for check out guitar house workshop on facebook. Thanks.
Artist's Way Study Group Recently, I've facilited study groups based on Julia Cameron's first two books in her now classic "Artist's Way" series. You do not need to have read the first book or be an artist, sculptor, writer, musician, dancer etc. to enjoy this study. This in not a religion course, but instead explores the spiritual connection to our creative source. While we've completed the most recent studies, I may organize a new group in the not-so-distant future. If you are interested in joining a new study group based on The Artist's Way, please email email@example.com. Thanks.
Ohio Union Reconstruction: I've been commissioned by The Ohio State University to document (in paintings) Ohio Union's upcoming transformation. The paintings are part of the new Ohio Union permanent collection. In addition, I was honored to design exterior new bas-relief sculptures (carved by Indiana sculptor Will Galloway) that compliment original Ohio Union sculpture panels on the exterior of the new building. Identical in size and similar in style and theme to the original bas-relief sculptures, these panels highlight aspects of Ohio history. More about this project in the drawing section of my site.
Walnut Hill Carriage Driving Competition 2009: Pittsford, NY. The 2010 poster is done and available through my studio or Walnut Hill.(www.walnuthillfarm.com).
Images of New Orleans- Musicians, French Quarter, Mississippi River Wharfs: I'm working on a series from jillions of references I shot while in New Orleans May of 2006, January and October 2008. I hope to return to NOLA soon.
Images of Kansas City Musicians: Jam sessions, restuarants, bars where jazz and blues are played. From a Fall 2009 visit to the city.
The Sanctuary Project: Started November 2006. Finished August 2007. The graphite drawing "Entanglement" was the result. I hauled the 48" by 32" drawing around to different sacred spaces and worked on it (on the floor) in those places for nearly 8 months (on and off). Working inside different sanctuaries was a surprising adventure. The places I visited were chosen in a variety of ways inlcuding chance meetings, old connections, and help from friends and supporters. I have learned a bit about manmade sacred spaces and what they mean to the people who use them. I've also found some wonderful new friends. Pieces of my experiences and the individual church's stories are woven into this drawing. I worked in the following places:
North Congregational United Church of Christ, West Henderson Road, Columbus, OH. Sanctuary and Chapel
First Unitarian Universalist Church, Weisheimer Road, Columbus, OH
St. Sophia's Eastern Orthodox Cathedral, Indianola Avenue, Short North area, Columbus, OH
Karma Thegsum Choling Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Center, Grubb Street, Columbus, OH
The Church at Mill Run, Fishinger Road, Hilliard, OH
St. Paul's United Church of Christ, East Gates St., South German Village area, OH
St. John's Episcopal Church, West Town St. Columbus, OH
My home studio (sacred to me - and the best spot to finish and clean the piece before framing)
You can view "Entanglement" by visiting the "Drawing" or "Available In Print" section of this site. The reproduction is 20" by 16"and is signed and numbered (x/500). The prints sell for $38, with half of that amount going to the Early Childhood Development Center at Weinland Park. The Weinland Park campus is a joint effort between The Ohio State University and the Columbus Public School System. Opening August 2007, the center will serve children and their families in the economically challenged communities adjacent to Ohio State's Columbus campus. Programming will include both childhood education and family advocacy services. The center will be a hands-on training facility for early education majors at Ohio sate as well as a laboratory school researching best practices in the care and education of young children. The goal is not only to support growth and development of children in this neighborhood, but also to acquire and transfer knowledge of "what works" to schools in similar circumstances around the country. The potential impact of this program is wide ranging and long lasting. There are many worthy causes in this hurting world. My reasons for supporting this particular program are personal and relate to my time in the Weinland Park neighborhood while working on "Entanglement". I will always be grateful for the friendship and generosity I encountered there. I hope to visit and draw in sacred spaces again soon. My next project will be based on the circle.
