It occurred to me today that we are as a country entering a time of revolution. And it’s likely to impact the rest of the world. Hopefully this will be a non-violent revolution but certainly akin to the 1960s when the collective consciousness took a gigantic leap not albeit without some struggle and sacrifice.

Breakdown leads to break through when it’s handled consciously. It is now up to us as individuals to decide how we’re going to fight the current regime of fear and division. The deprivation of the freedom of one is the deprivation of the freedom of all. Make no mistake we are all connected. And if we allow limitations on the freedoms of Muslims, gays, immigrants or other vulnerable populations further incursion into freedom will occur even in groups that think themselves invulnerable.

How will you fight? And what will you do to insure a better future? We now have the opportunity to use this time of division and struggle to catapult our nation and our Collective Consciousness further than it was before this reality TV star came to power.
Studio Grand Opening – Sat, June 21, 6 – 8 pm
710 13th Street @ G Street, Suite 201, San Diego 92101
Hi Fellow Bloggers and Followers, If you find yourself in or near San Diego next weekend, you are invited to celebrate the grand opening of my new studio. On view: recent paintings from The Consciousness Series.
1,100 sq ft studio located on the 2nd floor of the Art Center Lofts building above the New School for Architecture. Featuring the acoustic music of Crumb Dread. Art, food, drink, music…What could be better?!
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and feel free to bring guests.
Every artist needs a place to work. I just recently moved into the space below, 981 square feet in the East Village in San Diego. I’m on the second floor over an architecture school. I can’t tell you how exciting and terrifying this move was and is. For the first time in my artistic life I have ample space to work, show and store my paintings.
Moreover there is adequate ventilation, privacy and ability to control the temperature. These seem like small things, but they are not. Space cost money and quality space costs even more. So this is a huge leap for me…out on my own, trying to make it all work. “Live the dream” as they say. I had no idea how hard it is to live the dream, but it’s my dream and I can’t live any other.
