The coolest pair of shoes in the world!

Okay, so that's my opinion, but I am sure that you will all agree that these new shoes are pretty damn cool. They are John Osgood custom designed Converse shoes. He surprised me with them on Christmas day. Imagine my delight when I opened this present :-)
If you'd like a custom pair designed for you - I'm sure he'd be up for it.

"Contemplating Over Coffee"

This is another new piece that I have been working on for awhile. 28" x 80" Acrylic on Wood. This is actually one of three doors that I am working on right now. I had a fourth, " The Sub", and it sold.

Blue Turn

This is a new piece that I am working on. It is 2' x 3' Acrylic & Spray on Canvas called "Blue Turn". I am going to be putting together a canvas pretty soon that is going to be 6' x 4'. The theme of the piece is going to be something similar to what you see here , but a little more choatic, yet held to certain spot. Spotty choaticism as the French- American's call it.

Another thing to note is that I am going to be doing a live painting on New Years Eve at a place called the Skylark over in West Seattle. There is going to be a couple DJ's and our friends band Beehive are going to be playing as well.

I am also going to be doing another live painting at a place called the LoFi some time in March, but I don't know the details to that one just yet.

New Works in Progress

Here is a few pieces that I have been working on since our " Pulp Depiction" show and the Urban Craft Uprising show. Being a part of both of those shows really took time away from working on these pieces and now they are finally coming out of the wood works. The flower one I have been working on for at least a year. Maybe even longer, I can't remember when I started that one. The one with all of the faces is a piece that I started when I first got home from college. It had a man looking at a butterfly on a brick wall before I started painting over it.
Just a heads up, Bherds next show is on February 9th. It is a group show called " Love Is A Battlefield"

I am showing artwork @ Neptune Coffee

I just put up 18 pieces of artwork up at Neptune Coffee in Greenwood http://www.neptunecoffee.com/
Neptune Coffee is very close to the intersection of Greenwood and 85th. The coffee shop is in between an antique store ( which is right on the corner ) and Mr. Gyros ( good food for cheap ). If you want a cup of joe and want to look at some pretty cool artwork, why not kill two birds with one stone and go to Neptune Coffee.

Urban Craft Uprising Recap

Hey team!,
So Urban Craft Uprising was here and now is gone, but not forgotten. Both Michele and I had a really good time being a part of this event. Every time we do something like this, we find out just how much we can do with what we have. The U.C.U was Sat. & Sun, Dec 1st & 2nd. Being the procrastinators that Michele and I are we didn't really start getting the ball rolling until maybe last Wednesday. With two people, a monster job to deal with, and starting as late as we did, it was not good for our sleeping schedules. Also thrown in the mix was showing some artwork friday night at an open house out in Alki. The weekend was a blurr and Michele and I managed to stay on our feet the whole time. That was until we were packing up. When I was running to get my truck, Michele was wheeling the desk on wheels that we were using for one of our displays, up the ramp with three boxes of stuff that we had. Old desk on wheels, three heavy boxes, and a divit in the sidewalk that Michele didn't see, equals completely broken desk, boxes and everything that we had on the desk now on the ground. Not fun. But it made everything that more urgent, and urgency made for a quick get away. Ha cu nu ma tada means no worries and we were off with our first year of Urban Craft Uprising under our belts. Michele and I are looking forward to next year where we are already planning on having a bigger both. One that will facilitate both our clothing and my artwork. ( We only had room for our clothing this year.) So thank you to everyone that came down to support us and the U.C.U.
