A list, in no particular order, of what I am proud of this year. I am weaving together work and life and art milestones because it is all one continuous inhale and exhale to me.

1. Running my first Kickstarter campaign. We raised $9500 in 4 days to fund painting a bus for Siena Youth Center in an economically challenged neighborhood on Redwood City. These kids can now go on field trips and nature adventures, and in style.

2. My dad was a major donor to the fundraising effort, and his campaign award was a portrait with wife, Terry...

A Morgan Mural is Up for Auction!

I enjoy a warm and close relationship with each of my teenagers. It is one of the aspects of my life I am most proud of, even though I am sure I cannot take any credit. It feels like both grace and winning the lottery. If there is any credit due for the outcome, I would like to give a big thank you and shout out to Hand in Hand Parenting. I found out about them when my children were babies, and the tools and skills I learned through their training dramatically changed how I parented. That is why, this week, I am donating a custom mural for the Hand in Hand Parenting silent auction fundraiser, with a $5000 value. This auction is open to YOU, whether you are a parent or just want to support an amazing organization that happens to be changing the world, one parent at a time...

You might be surprised to learn it is the first time this has happened to me, but getting stuck on a roof is actually quite an accomplishment. First of all, the battery on your cell phone has to run out of juice. Otherwise, you could just call a lifeline, like those cute guys that live over at the fire department to come rescue you, and that would be a great story. You also have to have the door you entered through to get on the roof locked behind you. This is improbable, unless someone happened to come by and notice the door was unlocked, and do you the unexpected favor of locking it. I had a dedicated scissor lift operator to take me up and down from the sidewalk as needed, to make absolutely certain my current predicament would be impossible, but that day I had decided to work late, and Joseph had gone home for the day...

This month, I will take a break from my regular storytelling adventures and let the professionals take over. I was thrilled that NBC ran a “Bay Area Proud” segment about the project I just wrapped up at Stoneridge Creek in Pleasanton. This month, you get too choose: keep reading or take the shortcut and watch this awesome video that Garvin Thomas put together:

Garvin Thomas is a “one man show”: photographer, reporter, writer and news anchor. He has put together and presented over 500 stories about inspiring people in the Bay Area for NBC. It might make production complicated, but Garvin could certainly be the subject of one of his own segments...

This summer I took a good long break from mural projects. I had other adventures, including a road trip through the northwest with my son (he did most of the driving) and spending a week hiking in Telluride, Colorado. Even though I only went to one museum this summer, the booming popularity in murals, and public art in general, meant I still saw plenty of great art. Some of the pieces I encountered inspired me to stretch my creative efforts in new directions. Here are a few highlights from my serendipitous encounters art this summer.

I spent one day as a tourist not far from home, walking around Jack London Square in Oakland to see the nine new murals there...
