My Spring Open Studios Art Exhibition was part of a weekend where hundreds of artists open up their studios to the public throughout the Mission district in San Francisco (Mission Artists United web site). Within the historical industrial building in which my studio is located, 1890 Bryant Street Studios, around 70 artists showed their work. I showed my latest creations, digital and non-digital, ranging from live iPad portraits and drawings of musicians to traditional figure drawings and an on-going acrylic portrait (the Friday night reception live demo performance shown above). Each day of the show I created a live iPad portrait of a visitor. Here are the three portraits.

From Spring Open Studios 2016
At my Spring Open Studios 2016 we had the pleasure of live musical performance from pianist, Noam Eisen, and singer, Emily Day, who together lead the popular Cosmo Alleycats dance band. In addition to Noam and Emily’s performance. At one point bassist and singer Pam Brandon, featured in my Luxomatics painting, joined in. I gave a short live iPad portrait painting demonstration using the new Earth brushes in Procreate app on the iPad Pro. here are photos from the reception:
Tango instructor, performer and choreographer, Christie Cote and I dance in front of my painting, Moment in Time, in which she is featured.
Bassist and singer, Pam Brandon, and I in front of my painting The Luxomatics at Club Deluxe, in which she and her band are depicted.
Noam and Emily perform as I do a little solo improvisational dance!
This artwork, The Luxomatics at Club Deluxe, based on a live sketch I made of my friends, The Luxomatics, playing, as they do every Sunday from 6 to 9pm, at the wonderful, atmospheric Club Deluxe, will be on display for the first time tonight.
My artworks are for sale. I’m happy to discuss custom art commissions or performing live digital painting at events.
