after the Hand-Car Regatta

... a smattering of photos from today's event.
Thank you! to the event organizers Spring & Ty, (and everyone else!) who helped to create this event.

And keep your eye on their great Hand-Car Regatta website-- I bet they'll have some follow-up photos of the actual Hand-Cars & the racing. (click on any image below to see it big.)

moving it along

I've been at work on this commission piece-- trying to get it to a level where it can be seen at a house-warming at its new home tomorrow.

It sometimes seems that the more you do-- the more you need to do.
The main 'characters' and colors have been here for some time, now I'm working with pattern, texture, connections-- and what Tony likes to call the 'music'.

here it is, leaning in its new room!

the Shrine of Fortuna

Here's the Shrine of Fortuna as installed at Burning Man '08. This is the third piece, conceived by Tony, that we've made collectively with others (this year with building design/construction by Michael Coy, lots of work by Else Olava, Tim McG, and so many other great people) and taken to Burning Man.

This one, was well-- a little too challenging ultimately in a few ways, yet beautiful, and very well received.

She'll be appearing on Sunday, the 29th at Santa Rosa's Handcar Regatta, and then... a new, more permanent home...?
