Lake Worth Pier after a storm
One of the things that got me started on the IAMLAKEWORTH project is the incredible sense of community here in this tiny Florida beach town. Wendy and I were welcomed with open arms and found a place to call home where neighbors work together to make Lake Worth better and enjoy each others company at the same time. One of the ways I have found to give back is to be as open to my neighbors projects as they have been to mine. Each connection strengthens that sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves. To that end I am donating one of my Lake Worth digital paintings (the one of the pier shown above) which is 10x30" on canvas to Renee and Michael Hoyt's event Smiles for Miles, Fundraiser for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. which can be found here on Facebook Smiles for Miles. My digital painting will be one of several available in a silent auction to go along with this great musical event. Please consider donating or bidding on one of the auction pieces for this great cause.
Now back to my regular shameless self promotion. Yesterday was a full out sprint as most days until the opening will be. I had an 8:30 meeting with Common Grounds to get all of our coffee cups in a row for the interview series. Then I met with Pamela DePalma who is helping get the word out about the show. Next I worked on painting the acrylic gel texture onto of eight of the digital paintings and started delivering the work over to Hatch and walking the space to figure out the layout of the room before I start hanging the work. Today is odds and ends working on graphics and getting some more flyers done. Once that is finished I will make several runs over to Hatch to drop off work before finally settling in to work on the I AM Lake Worth pieces. Busy, busy but it feels great.
Keep Makin' Art!
