A friend asked me to contribute to a group of hand painted skateboard. I hadn’t painted in a long time so I thought it would be fun to come up with something. It took me a while to find time to complete this but it was a good feeling to pick up a brush again. Having freedom to put an idea together and execute it is a good feeling. I work on big projects on a regular basis for clients at work but I don’t always have the freedom to guide the purpose and content of what I am working on. This small painting briefly gave me that opportunity and it was fun to put together.
I’ve been working on this project for a while. I’ve modified the design to better functionality and comfort, while allowing myself time to meet my deadline. This project has shown me how disadvantages and mistakes can redirect you to a better outcome.
I’m glad to be a part of another group show like this. This is one, hovever, I’m especially excited about. I’ts downtown on 4th Ave, at Conrad Wilde Gallery. Its a very nice place and I’m really happy to have the opportunity to show my work there.
