I recently deleted all subscribers who don't regularly read my newsletter. I want my work, the what, the how and the why to resonate and add value to you. If you are reading this, you are part of a small tribe of art lovers that I want to dance with in 2018. Welcome to the party.

We live in a world that is increasingly digitized and commoditized. But we will always need experiences and encounters that are singularly analog. My artmaking is how I connect. I sometimes feel guilty about hoarding all these amazing connections and experiences to myself.

This year I want to share more of the magic...

It’s the time of year to stop and reflect on the adventures that fill our days
A pause to celebrate - and recalibrate - amid the holiday craze

My work is unique, but at the core, it’s no different from the rest
We show up each day without all the answers, wanting to do our best

It’s a wild ride for sure; who knows what will unfold?
Some projects need florescent pink and others, pale gold

Of the transformative power of mural art I simply have no doubt
I have no intention to let up until the paint runs out

Last month I was invited to China to join artists from around the world to paint on the subject of peace and transformation. The Miracle Mural project was located in Hua Quan Village, in the Jianxi province, in one of the largest art and cultural centers in the world. The village features stunning views of Dragon Tiger Mountain, which is a World Heritage Site recognized as the birthplace of Taoism. I was honored to be included in the ranks of the other world-class artists that participated in the creation of what will be a total of 100 murals around the village, 80 of which are now complete.

Never underestimate how attached a community can become to a mural.

I learned this first hand while renovating the underwater mural at the California Pedestrian Underpass at the end of California Avenue in Palo Alto. It is a heavily used underpass. Throughout my days painting there, I heard a steady stream of comments that revealed how attached the community was to this particular mural. People would stop to point out their favorite fish, or want to share with me their fond memories of watching the original mural go up. Most commonly, people stopped just to make sure that I am only touching it up, right?
