Fall is here, hear the yell…. What’s good in Cascadia is there is a ginormous park by la casa complete with high cliffs, essentially. I am making going there part of my regular routine. It sounds corney but there really is a bounty of wilderness in my backyard. It’s a little hike to get there but then, no one around and it’s pure prana, watch the leaves fall out of the trees peace. Good stuff. Seahawks played on Sunday and I was there to rock the vibe and collect a few tips while I was at it. Follow your bliss internet massive!
I have written a handful of songs so far living in Seattle, one is called “Areal View” and here is a painting that I did in the spirit of that tune. It’s about getting some distance on any troubling feeling and steering one’s mind more toward the ZONE.
My band is Pixie Dust (aka Touched with Fire), but Pixie Dust is shining through more than ever as of late.
More works coming soon! I have a new amazing workspace that it took a while to build up just right– So grateful for that!
First Thursday in May was good times at Statix Gallery in the Pioneer Square artsy neighborhood of Seattle. The Drawnk group show did not disappoint. Much inspiration was found at this show and is up for the whole month of May. Definitely much inspiration to be found at this show! Locals, Statix is open everyday 12-6pm on Washington Street in Pioneer Square. Come thru!

For now, enjoy a cute pic of one of my best buddies here in Seattle– fellow artist Kayla Cabe and I. We met at my 2nd art show in Seattle (where Kayla was a fellow artist showing her paintings as well) and have been having a blast since creating new art works together, and being part of the Drawnk art club and finding all sorts of art opportunities here in the city to go for an just hangin! Next adventure First Thursday Art Walk coming up in 2 days!
And here’s another bestie too: Blake Hamilton an awesome artist (who loves film & photography) and is amazing at it to boot! And also is huge in the zero-waste & cutting plastic use down to size movement as well as incredibly creative, inspiring & lovely!
