Bonjour! I'm happy to announce I'll be participating in the Vagabonde Surf Art Festival in Bordeaux, France July 3-6th at the Helle De Chartrons. Along with having nine new pieces of art showing, I'll be attending the show and live painting on a pair of breasts... hey, it's France right? Actually, it's a plaster cast of a pair of breasts for the Keep-A-Breast Foundation, but it should still be fun, and it's for a good cause... saving boobies.
For the show, I created a series of nine triangle paintings and was fortunate enough to have master woodworker, John Birchim (www.jayawave.com) create some of the most beautiful reclaimed wood frames I've ever seen. These puppies look sharp! 60° Sharp actually.

If you live in the Bordeaux area or know somebody who does, help spread the word. Hope to see some of you there!
