Elements Show

When a friend asked if I’d contribute an element themed piece into his Art After Dark show, I asked if I could have water.

Even though most of the folks reading this blog know why I would choose water, I’ll go ahead and list my reasons for those of you who don’t know me:

  • I grew up with a pool in the backyard, therefore I could swim before I could walk
  • I participated in speed swimming, synchronized swimming and water polo (played polo until the day I graduated college)
  • The pool (water) is my happy place
  • I’m pretty sure I’m part fish and need water (chlorinated water is preferable) to survive

So, I thought coming up with a piece for this show would be cake. I thought wrong. Turns out I have so many memories, so much emotion tied to water that narrowing down a subject, a concept, a focus was… difficult.

I changed my mind at least 3 times and still, I’m not 100% in love with my piece.

So I’m sharing with you a very small detail – you’ll either have to wait for a future post in which I uncover the entire piece, or come to 968 Monterey St. downtown San Luis Obispo tonight between 6 & 9pm during Art After Dark to judge my interpretation of water. The other wonderful artists who will represent earth, wind, and fire are Dominic Tartaglia, Brandon Collins, and Carolyn Berg.
