Combat Consumerism With Free Art
I was just doing some post feasting Facebook trolling and stumbled upon Fresh Ghost's post about his piece of art he is giving away for free! There is a project going on right now called "Flood the Streets with Art!" for Black Friday 11-29-13! " Leave a piece of art created by your heart & soul on the street as a random act of kindness. While all of the crazy shopper zombies are fighting over $9 shower radios at their local big box store, do this instead. Do the OPPOSITE of that. 2,400+ artists all over the globe can't be wrong. - SCOTT. (https://www.facebook.com/events/555191127888779/)"
So in the spirit of this anti-black-friday-pro-free-art-fun-idea I am going to be giving away this bee painting! Anguiano Art and I will be dropping our art off somewhere in downtown Salem, Oregon. I hope if you are out in the craze you take the time to look for one of these handmade treasures!

Horrible Holiday Series
I have decided to start a new little holiday series called the Horrible Holiday Series. So far I have completed 2 paintings and uploaded them to Society 6 and Etsy. The idea behind this series (besides getting of finally incorporate skeletons into christmas) is that the holidays are always a busy time of year full of let downs. Lets be real. You spend so much time expecting things to go a certain way and it never really works out. It could be as simple as someone not showing up for the family dinner or not getting that "thing" you have wanted all year. Either way, people are bound to get a little stressed and feelings hurt. So how about we start from the lowest point and go up. Wishing you a Horrible Holiday will make your average christmas with a sprinkling of family drama seem like the best holiday ever. So now I wish you a Horrible Holiday!
I am going to post some of my experiments and thoughts. It can be anything from photography to art to mycology
