February 21-23 EcoBean Organic Coffee House owner Rachael and her incredible staff hosted me for a 3 day pop-up show. The entire staff were some of the nicest, happiest, and most accommodating people I have ever met, keeping me well fed, hydrated, and laughing the entire time I was there
Along with the great staff came the great residents of Tarpon Springs, FL. My favorite customer of the show was a lovely woman and fellow NY'er named Alma who not only bought 2 prints but she brought me lunch from the best NY deli in town! The women lit up the entire room the second she walked in
During my residency I was gifted a canvas to do a live painting on. Over the span of 3-4 hours I threw together this 3x4' painting
Quick interruption from the local piss-on-everything dog Max who wouldnt stop barking unless I gave him some of my pancakes..
When art imitates life...
HUGE THANK YOU TO RACHAEL, Audrey, Mack, Shannon, Rachael2, and the entire staff of EcoBean for being gracious enough to host me for these 3 days! It was a phenomenal experience!
A special thank you to John Stavros for setting all of this up and giving me a place to stay!
I cant wait to come back and see everyone again!
