The Trees of Wesleyan

'The Trees of Wesleyan' cut paper self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) I didn't go to my 25th reunion this summer, but the Wesleyan fundraising folks sent a very fancy brochure with many nice pictures and I imagined myself back on campus, sitting under a tree and studying.

And for those wondering about the technical details, this was made with colored electrical tape.

Last Day Feeding Minnie... Until Next Time

Yes, it is a self-portrait - that's my hand scratching Minnie's neck.

And here's to Mom... she's been in my thoughts all day on this, the 4th anniversary of her death.

iDraw: I Tried to Wait Patiently on the UPS Pick-up Line

'I Tried to Wait Patiently on the UPS Pick-up Line' digital iPod Touch self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) But how many packages do they misplace every day? (They had mine but two other people were having difficulties) Well, I kept myself entertained making this drawing!

In any event, thank you to Laura for the Buffy comics - just about my speed these days!

iDraw: Quick Drawings Can Take Awhile...

Sometimes I have to make so many quick drawings to get one I like, I might as well have taken the time for a longer drawing...

What Goes Up, Must Come Down

'What Goes Up, Must Come Down' pen self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Six months ago, we carried my 8' X 4' painting, "Reluctant Goddess of the Houseplants', up 5 flights of stairs. The show was over so it had to come back down. It went incredibly smoothly, with only one Dirk Gently moment where we thought it might be stuck in the bend of the stairwell forever. Many, many thanks to Guy & Melissa, the best painting moving team ever, and to Martin for providing a new home for it.

My landscapes have gotton better but my architectural drafting is still not very good - this was such a good subject (more thanks to Melissa for the photos!) I couldn't resist it even though I really couldn't do it justice. After I get the next show hung maybe I'll do an architectural series and see where that leads me...

This show will be the first physical-world exhibit of selections from the portrait project.

And I sure hope that if you're an adult citizen of the USA, you voted, too! (I have four receipts because we have so many state and local initiatives, there are four pages of ballot to fill out!)

You Rang?

'You Rang?' acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Lurching into the new week... the process for this piece was a game I sometimes play.. to use up all the leftover paint on my palette and not take out anything new.
