Overload (GP_14 weeks 12 and 13)

GP14_34Trying to find a balance.  For the last two weeks I have been pretty ridiculous busy.  I quit my job and have not had a day off since.  The tough part about working for yourself is that there is no one to pay you on time.  hehe.  For the most part I have been painting as much as I can.  In April I have 3 art shows!  The first on is hanging up today at Cell Space.  12 of my paintings that are repainted versions of my Gift Prolific paintings will be there for a few days.  I am told this is during a big few days of meetings for Burning Man folks from all over the world.  How cool?!  I am very excited to share my art with all of you!  I am honored and excited.GP14_35

The next exhibition is ‘Universe: The Art of Existence’ for Warholian.com at Modern Eden Gallery on April 12th.  60 artists were given a very short time to make paintings about existence.  I am very excited about this show and my piece for it.

And finally, I have my big duo show with Jeremiah Welch called ‘The Golden State’.  Loosely based on animals.  This show is a big step for me as it is my first duo show.  I am working hard to get 12 paintings done for this show.  I have just under 2 more weeks to go.  I hope you all can make it out to this show.  At Lower Branch gallery (233 Eddy St.  April 18th from 6pm-10pm).

So you can see I am a busy dude.  Here is the thing…..even though I may not post about it.  I have found ways to give everyday!  Even with being  this busy the giving train don’t stop!  I over-tipped a waitress here and bought coffee for some stranger their….etc.  Yes we are all freakin mega busy.  But you really aren’t too busy to give.  If you open up to giving, you will find ways and opportunities everywhere.  Seriously.  I laugh when people tell me that they would give BUT they don’t have *time *money *patience – for it.  You are only kidding yourself.  Go out today and find a way to give.  It will make a huge difference in you daily life.  And if somehow, you don’t see that, then you lose nothing.  And you can thumb your nose at me.  hehe.  Maybe even in person at one of my art shows!  Take care.
