Home Plate Auction Paintings!

Emily and I were invited to Make live paintings last weekend for the Farm Plate auction and benefit that is held each year for Home Plate Youth Services, a great organization that helps a lot of families and young people. We are always happy to participate. Here were are finished pieces that we traded back and for the work on. They were 4" x 6" acrylic pieces that we had less that two hours (with people hovering about talking to us) to finish them. Our subject matter was a vegetable basket that was also up for auction. definitely a good challenge!

Year before last I did a live landscape painting in about the same amount of time. Check out those posts here and here.

Firestation Mural Article!

My wife and I have been consumed with this mural the past few weeks. It has been crazy busy as the article says. Which has been good and bad because I really haven't had that much time to worry about the Kickstarter which has 10 days left!

NEWS-TIMES PHOTO: TRAVIS LOOSE - Painting and parenting must be handled in shifts. When Lux puts work into a mural, Marcel takes over kid duty and keeps one-year-old Arliss out of harms (and artists) way.

It is weird having the intimate insides of our garage plastered all over town (This is on the front page of  our hometown paper) and if I had known I would have dressed up a bit. Now back out to the garage...
