LIVE PAINTING at COSM Chapel of Sacred Mirrors Full Moon Gathering: April 2017 was amazing! It felt like I was at home painting with friends.
I was introduced to CoSM a few years ago and since then I have meditated on that place and I see the foundation they are laying out for artistic generations to come. To be a part of that, even the smallest way, makes a difference and I am truly humbled and honored to be included.
Thank you Jon Ohia for honoring my efforts and inviting my artwork into such a sacred space. I want nothing more than to support Alex Grey & Allyson Grey's most recent project, the erection of Entheon, a massive project revolving around the unveiling of the Sacred Mirrors which have not seen the light of day in nearly a decade. Attendees had the opportunity to support this cause by having a portrait painted LIVE by Alex, who loving named these "supportraits". Logon to CoSM.org for more details.
We are all visitors here, and our time is short, so the real question is, what will your legacy be? My journey led me here for a reason and I do not believe in coincidences. Again, thank you to everyone who has supported me on this journey, even if it was not by the most conventional avenues.
A very special thank you goes out to....John Harris (Johnny), Genevieve Wood, Louie Izzo, Martin Bridge, ILL.DES, Keith Prossick, Roland Ramos, Caren Charles, Keiara Gallodoro, Hannah Beth, Madame Ximon and every single staff member and volunteer the treats this sacred space like a home away from home. I do apologize if I missed anyone, you all know how much I love you!
LIVE painting at this event was epic! We had so much fun exploring the James Street Pub and all it's architectural beauty.
Local shows like this pop up all around us, keep your eyes pealed so you can bring your art and support our beautiful city, Pittsburgh.
Live painting here was fun and a lot of work. I love finding shows like this, they really help me focus on my goals as an artist. Careful people, you definitely want to keep your eyes peeled for events like this!
Glad I could transport my art there for an appearance at this show despite electrical problems and location issues. There were little surprises the entire weekend, too bad the owner missed all the fun!
Live painting with these guys was an amazing experience. I really have no idea how I became so blessed Their music helped me create something totally new!
The painting done here was specifically for this band. "Grilled Cheese Funk" is a mixed media painting which is surprisingly still available for purchase!
Live painting here was amazing! I want to do this events every year! I take a friend and hit the road for a 14 hour drive north to my favorite Art & Music Festival in Maine.
This 4 day festival is full of superior art, fresh food, music, vendors, and live performers. My favorite memory is seeing everyone dance to Space Jesus...an epic DJ that pops up at all my favorite festivals!
Live painting here was incredible. It was organized and professional from the get go. This 3 day indoor mini-festival has all the trappings of a fine art & music festival without the unpredictable weather.
There was never a dull moment for me or my clients. There were exotic animals, fine artwork, & THE MOST AMAZING TATTOO ARTISTS around. Hopefully, I will see some familiar faces this year!
This was one of my first solo events and it couldn't have been more challenging. Finding help from the volunteer staff was very easy. The event was awesome but the weather wasn't our friend.
It was too windy to live paint most of the time and it rained quite a bit. But, we all made the best of it and had a blast! I would totally do this event again!
Each year artists are called out of their Winter hibernation to gather for Gem and Jam in Arizona. I look forward to seeing the latest works from the Tribe 13 Gallery and all of the rare and fairly priced gems.
Live painting here, I must say, is the highlight of my year and usually my first festival of the new year. If you are looking to get rejuvenated mind, body and soul then this is the festival for you!
This was my first official festival and I couldn't have been more pleased with the volunteers, the cabins, live music, and painting!
my friends and I hardly got any sleep at this jam-packed event. The food is amazing and the coffee and hot chocolate is always hot!
Thanks to my dear friend and fellow artist Seth Leibowitz I have been blessed enough to meet the people at CoSM. This event was full of resident artists from there.
RSVP Recording Studios main mission is to pair LIVE painting artists with the PERFECT band! We definitely need more companies like this!
