Summer is def in full swing, which makes it hard for me to comfortably sit in front of the laptop long enough to write a blog. I don't have pads and touch phones and I must admit.... the necessary arms length detachment from technology feels great! However, I don't wanna ramble on about how free it is to not have on digital handcuffs... but, I'm always happy to have great discussions with those willing to get deep.
Anyway! Been super busy in the studio, working on various projects. Recently finished my commissioned group portrait, I started live at Sunningdale golf course and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The painting is apparently going on tour to visit different hospital sites, before it comfortably lightens up a staff room @ St. Joseph's.
Also, working on lots of my music these days. It's time for me to put out a release and I've been holding onto lots of new tracks with purpose of doing so. Just finished a new one the other day and I'm happy to share a piece of it. This particular song was composed around a recording I did. With a good mate, Andy Welbourne, aka.Slither and I playing djembes inside of a cenote in Mexico. By far the most amazing musical jam experience I've ever had and there will be plenty more songs to come from the both of us, involving the many great recordings we did. Check out some of Andy's groovy original music on his soundcloud page. Or, my mixcloud page, which is full of our live music. We've been jamming together for years and plans are bubbling for perfromance outside of the studio. Stayed tuned for more about the tunes! Hope you enjoy.
Last, but certainly not least!!! It has just been confirmed that Kim and I will be attending the much anticipated Mantis Eco Festival!!! We saw the potential to become part and feel it's going to be right up our alley. Everything there is made by local Artists. With great focus on everything being grass roots and real... meaning and thankfully, nothing you would ever find in a plastic made commercial store! Means a lot to us, to support local as much as possible. Or! do it ourselves. Which brings me to the exciting announcement that we will be debuting a selection of the all natural products that Kim and I have been making for ourselves, over the last 3 years or so. Featuring our all Natural bug repellent, lip balm and puppy paw protection rub! As well.... some of the most delicious granola bites and gmo-free popcorn you've ever tasted, Lovingly made by Kim..... if I don't eat it all first, haha.
This all takes place on August 8th at Boler mountain, here in London!!!! Come check some of my new pieces on display and for sale. Hope to see everyone that can make it out.
Hope everyone is enjoying this lovely smoking hot weather that is anticipated all year round. Only last so long before we're back into..... I don't even wanna say the nasty word. Big Ups!!!
