MAAC in the Box!
My piece, Lunar Spring, was accepted into the MAAC (Michiana Annual Art Competition) Competition this year, which took place between May 19th and July 9th. Didn't win any award, but did score 41 votes from the public for favorite piece. People paid $1.00 for each vote and the proceeds were matched by the Judds and went to The Box Factory for the Arts.

Returned for a 3rd time to exhibit at Webster's in the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo, MI.

Fifth Third Warner, Norcross & Judd
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Exhibited for the second time this year and had a blast! This tiny 1-1/2" Silver Studded Blue butterfly was painted during my ongoing demos. I had a sign that read, "Be Right Back" and another that read, "Talk to Me!". Several times when I forgot to change these signs on my easel when I left my chair, people tried to talk to this little guy...LOL!!! It always brightened my day when this happened.
422,763 people voted at ArtPrize 7...no telling how many people actually attended. If you've never checked out
this event, you owe it to yourself to see it. Art is everywhere in every form you can imagine...sculptures on top of buildings and in the river, paintings and 3D art in banks, yogurt shops, major hotels...any business that wants to be
a venue, can be. Not to mention all of the great street musicians that perform throughout the city during this event!

Pecha Kucha Night
May 14, 2015
Benton Harbor, Michigan
Pecha Kucha means "chit chat" in Japan, where is originated, to teach people how to make concise, effective, PowerPoint presentations on anything they are passionate about. Parameters for Pecha Kucha are 10 presenters, each showing 20 slides, on which the speaker cannot spend more than 20 seconds talking about each slide. My presentation was about the series, "Fight or Flight". It was a super fun night and a very educational experience for me.

This is my new friend and aspiring artist, Courtney Bondy, who met me at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids along with her mom, Laura. Love this little girl because she asked me a lot of questions and was so sweet. ArtPrize was a fantastic experience especially because I met wonderful people like Courtney and her mom!
