Hey, I found a photo of my boards at the actual Bordo Bello show this summer.
Here’s a cropped version of an event photo from Wink Inc & AIGA Colorado:
Yes, I know I painted these on the “wrong” side of the board, but that was because it looked like there was some trouble hanging at the first show I participated in. I see now that they’ve got a solution for that with the wood strips. August 26, 2012
I just started with these, so hopefully I can get ’em done by Sept 6. I will say that after about 10yrs of neglection, I finally understand the importance of gesso.
Yeah, I’m gonna have to be done now. Gotta drop these off tomorrow.

Built this one up on top of an old painting that recently fell out of my favor. I’ve put three layers onto it so far, and I believe it is due tomorrow (Monday), so it should be done tonight.
(Let’s not talk about Step 2)
Acrylic on stretched canvas, .75 inches deep. 11 inches wide and 12 inches tall. Ready to hang.
This painting will be available via silent auction at Heart Art Denver this Thursday.
Update: Got word from a coworker that the painting was auctioned for $75. And that’s cool. January 15, 2011
Bustin’ out the paint this weekend after a lengthy hiatus. Here’s another post about a painting in progress. This time it’s for the AIGA Heart Art Auction 2011.
