Rooftop Painting!

Friday May 28th
Brooklyn, NY
1:00pm Eastern Time
82 Degrees 92% Humidity

Our first official painting session for Auto-Paint, USA with Chris Wright concluded last friday. We had an amazing time sketching for a few hours in the humid haze of industrial Bushwick. We have the sunburns to prove it. Thanks to everyone for the support. We were outside for about two hours and here are the sketches. Everything is coming together. We have finally raised the money to meet our goal and are now trying to exceed it. With extra funding we can purchase a projector and linen to paint on. The better supplies we have the better the work will be. Time is also less of a factor now. We are talking to galleries in LA to culminate our trip and we are now extending our trip to Portland, Oregon. Jackson now has an easel that was carted all throughout Chelsea galleries on thursday night. Everything is happening and we are ecstatic. The countdown has begun. 37 days. Thank you thank you good night.

After a day of emails, we needed nourishment so a trip to the grocery store lead to homemade turkey burgers and sweet potato fries. Now we are relaxing with St. Germain and champagne in front of US government UFO disclosure briefings on Youtube.
