there is an abundance of temporary walls at burning man that can use some colorful art and I would like to help remedy that.

Let the Owl paint !!!  After sitting out the 2011 festival, I'm ready to return to the playa.  Admittedly I've decided to go late in the game and am finding myself left out of my usual Artists role. I've been well represented every year with art at center camp, on the playa streets and with commissioned art cars roving the night playa. This year due to my hesitancy to commit I do not have any art representing me at the burn so I want to go paint a "wall" or two every day while i'm there. 

If you've been to burning man before you know there is a plethora of available places to paint. Someone always runs a "graffiti camp" but they never have any paint. People are always asking you to paint something cool at their camp. Well this year, I would like to be ready to contribute my colorful owls to the playa when the opportunities arise. 

In order to do that, I could use a little help in funding my paint stock. I'm already in possession of a ticket to burning man 2012, a ride there and back, I am part of a camp, I have my food and all the necessary provisions. All I am looking to fund is my paint arsenal. This is NOT a send nite owl to burning man project. I'm going regardless, this is simply a paint fund.

Burning man embodies the spirit of the "gift economy" and I would like to give the gift of my art to all who attend. For all those who can't be there, I will be photo documenting it all ! I'll be more than happy to share my finished works digitally when I return. 

I'm not going to be greedy, I'm only looking for about $100 to ensure that I can paint a few owls while I'm there. Of course if I receive more than that amount it will go towards a larger color selection, more spots to paint and a new respirator. It's going to be dusty out there this year.  If I really exceed the limit, well there are plenty of walls awaiting me in the bay area when i return.

Thanks for checking out my project. I hope to see you out there on the playa this year.
