Hemp goes Hi Tech: Fashion Preview and Art Show

This fantastic event is giving me life! Join me for a night of luxury, glamour, and glorification of the plant that has over 25,000 different uses!  While she has been misunderstood, neglected and underestimated, HEMP is now coming into her own and I am showcasing her with might and muse!

I have finished my year long focus in oils on hemp and am bringing you my results plus education in The Hemp Show hanging this very moment in Rosenblum Cellars Winery at The Ferry Building in Oakland’s Jack London Square. You can get a peek at some of the art here, while the rest will be unveiled online after this Artist Reception Event.Hemp Poster 2 web

The Sunday Spawn

Yes, I said spawn. Create. Engender. Yield. Beget. I am feeling the effects of the push as 5 new paintings in oils were born this week in preparation for the June 22nd event that celebrates the arrival of Jubilieu in the Castro. They have been miraculously drying faster than I think they should in the chilly, wet fog of San Francisco June.

As I paint, their stories have been swirling around in my head. They will be available to be heard online as recordings read by voice over talent, producer, and lit artist, judy-b.  I am going to produce a coffee table book as well. A Hard back, full color rendition of the Jubilieu characters and stories will be available along with the original oil works.

This is a new stretch for me. I’ve had thoughts in my head that come from fear trying to hold me back. They are banished in the name of new growth.

So every Sunday leading to the show, I have been painting live out front of this bright establishment (with the perfect afternoon delights for high tea or a caffeine fix.)

Here are a few of the works in progress from the sunny sidewalk of Sweet Inspiration.

Lighting up the Castro for Sunday #3 is this strange bird whose large size (18x24") needs detail work.

Feel free to come over and sit in the window next to me. I love to chat while I work and you will surely love the delectable dining and the lively, creative atmosphere. I have a curated mix of some new works and some from the last show currently in the viewing gallery for your pleasure and purchasing perusal. -xxooYabette
