exploring art and design, one day at a time

Geode #11

Geode #11! The largest, darkest, and on the edge of the Arts District in LA. This one is located right outside a local favorite bar, Tony’s. My friend Tim works there, found the spot for me, and has kindly offered to help me secure this one behind a plastic sheet. It’ll eventually look more like an “exhibit” outside with the cover on it. We decided to take these steps to see if we can get this to last longer than the other large one that was quickly removed despite some small efforts.

I have to say I’m particularly excited about this one. I can’t use black for smaller ones because I think they’ll be too hard to see, so I was happy to expand the palette a bit. And this is my largest effort, something I hope to continue to grow in the future. I love the small detailed treasures I’ve created but it would be nice to have some obvious public art—in addition.

    I love this idea and your work. I think it is amazing, charming, and fun. I would love to stumble across one of these walking down the street. It’s so original and imaginative!!!

    Don’t stop doing them. I know you were frustrated when the purple geode disappeared, but keep on! Just think of them as photographic projects if you must–install them, document them, and then walk away. But keep doing them.

    I have a blog where I write posts about artists, their work, and all things beautiful, whether it is painting, sculpture, music, film, books, etc. I am going to have to post your work and a link to your site so people can see and enjoy more of what you are doing.

    THANKS!
