This photo is from yesterday. It was a storm day, so no school for my daughter. Which was great because I put her to work sharpening pencils.

A Wednesday Idea. Crazy Or Otherwise.


A Wednesday Idea.

A Wednesday Idea.

I’ve decided to change things up a bit. I’ve been doing a Wednesday List Of Ten Things I Like, but I feel it’s been getting a bit stale, and I’m running out of things I like. So my new idea for Wednesday is A Wednesday Idea. Crazy Or Otherwise. So here goes!

My idea is a bit crazy, and it’s been done. The artist Andre Cadere is the inspiration. My idea is that I will take a piece of wood 1-metre long, and turn it into an artwork. Paint it, carve it, cut it, wrap it, whatever I wish to do, and make it into something that could be considered art. After I create the piece of art I’ll take it for a walk and leave it somewhere it can be found. I’ll record the event and post it on my blog. There are some rules I have set for myself.

1. I will start with a piece of wood 1-metre long, and make it into art.

2. I will record the process of making it into art.

3. I will take it for a walk and leave it so it might be found.

4. I will post images of the artwork, the walk, and where it’s left.

5. I will hope someone finds it and realizes it’s art and takes it home.

Does anyone want to follow this idea as well and let me know about it?

From There. To Here.


Long Series #1.

Long Series #1.

When I look at the first Long Series drawing it’s hard to imagine how I got from there to here. It started out as a simple drawing project. Doing one drawing a day was my idea, and before I knew it three years have gone by and I’ve done 1034 of the things. The first one really was a simple drawing on mylar and paper. Now they’ve become wild multi media collage / drawing / painting / cooperative / concepts with no end in sight. My intention is to do 10,000, and getting there will be an interesting process.

Tomorrow is Wednesday, and each week I do A Wednesday List Of Ten Things I Like, but tomorrow I’m going to start something a bit different called A Wednesday Idea. Crazy Or Otherwise.

I managed to get most of the paint off this shirt, but it now has a nice big dark stain on the side. So now it’s a painting shirt, and hopefully I’ll remember to take it off before I wander through the streets of Charlottetown.

I approached this painting as an experiment in order, and I will take what I’ve learned and make better use of it someday. I was indifferent to this painting until I stamped the letters on each circle and then it worked for me. The letters give it a bit of humor, and I like that.
