Thoughts from Places: Eve-day of show opening

Tomorrow is when the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum opens its doors to about two dozen Japanese quilters to mark the start of the newest exhibits. Among the Japanese quilts and Ainu embroidery is the quilt project that I was a part of.

Back in June 2010 I was approached by board members for the museum and asked if I'd join a project. I accepted. Now two years later, that project is ready to be unveiled.

New skateboard commission, first steps

A few days ago, my good friend Ethan came over, with a selection of skateboards. He was visiting his creative friends, giving them skateboards to paint on with full creative license. Just like the last commission, I readily accepted. Below is the first steps I've taken today.

Also, I recommend seeing Ethan's video I helped make last spring. It was supposed to be a short intro for an upcoming skate film, but it didn't make it in due to time constraints. (And if you look really close at 0:25, you can see a corner of the last commissioned board "under his chin").
