Ok, so I mentioned my Cell Phone Photo Paintings: FREE project. Well, yesterday (my first day, when I was just working out my spiel) a very sweet reporter from KGW came and interviewed me at the installation space. She filmed me painting–no pressure–and also chatted with some of the people who came to see the installation. AND IT IS ON LOCAL TV AND IT TOTALLY MAKES ME CRINGE AND IT IS AWESOME / TERRIFYING ALL AT ONCE. You don’t have to look, but if you want to, here it is.
Note: my friend David can be seen in the segment as well.
Note again: TRACY BARRY COMPLIMENTED MY GLASSES!!! LOCAL FAMOUS LADY LIKES MY GLASSES!!! For the record, I’m not totally sure about my glasses, but this helps.
For the month of May, I’ll be doing this thing called Cell Phone Photo Paintings: FREE at the Portland Building Installation Space.
It is pretty much what it sounds like. In the installation space, I’ll be sitting at a desk making little watercolor paintings based on people’s cell photos. Hopefully people will come by and we’ll pick out a photo from their phone together, they’ll email it to me, and I’ll paint it, then hang it on the wall. At the end of the month, they can claim their painting.
Viewing Hours & Location: The Portland Building is located at 1120 SW 5th Ave in Downtown Portland and is open 8 am to 5 pm Monday – Friday. Cell Phone Photo Paintings: FREE opens May 4th and runs through May 29th, 2015. My studio hours (when I’m painting in the space) will be 2 pm to 5 pm, Monday – Thursday all month (excluding Memorial Day).
Please come visit and give me a photo to paint (seriously).
p.s. The installation is made possible by the Regional Arts & Culture Council, Portland, Oregon
