Now that the Holiday Season is almost over, I can get back to work and continue the ceiling mural at Vela.

I am very excited to tell you about a new night that will begin January 5th, Secret Society, a weekly ambient night put on by the very talented Marc Tweed and Joseph Zar. Live music, art and drink specials.

January 5th I will be showcasing the sketches for the Labor Temple Project as well as the progress so far on the ceiling. Marc and Joe will be performing live music all night.

January 5th
7pm to 2am


Since the last time I spoke at you I had become very busy at the Day Job, the Print Shop, and had to take a little time to focus my energy over there. Thursday I was able to make it back to the Labor Temple and finish off the rest of the Last Supper panel. There are a few issues that I can fix when I start painting. All in all it filled out the space very nicely.

You might not remember, but before I said that there were only 11 panels that I would be creating. It so happens that one of those panels is in an L shape. So I decided it best to make this panel into 2. I did a sketch before for this panel but was never happy with it. I tried to create a domed ceiling with the Flower of Life as the central focus, but my perspective was wrong and needed to try again.

The Flower of Life is a geometric series of concentric circles that from a flower like form. When using the points of intersections within the flower you are able to create every shape known to man. Or at least that is how I understood it.

The new design turned out very well and is probably one of my favorites to date. As soon as I finish the new sketch on paper I will scan it so you can see and compare it to the one I did before. I only drew half of it and just flipped the projection to complete the piece. I love it.

I know that it has been a minute since my last post, but here I am now letting you know that I have been unable to work on the project for a week or so now. The Print Shop is in full swing with our busy season and I haven’t had any time to make it down there. Starting next week, hopefully next Thursday I will be back in action and the posts will start up again to keep you all informed on the progression. Thanks for checking it out and I hope that some of you will share this with your friends and get the word out. Talk at you soon.
