About

The Experiment

For the past decade, I have painted in solitude and sold works around the world.  For the next year, I plan to share the creative journey with the public by opening a storefront in San Francisco.  

Within these walls I will create a 48"x 60" painting each month for twelve months.  I will also paint a single, 72"x 84" painting, the creation of which will span the entire fifty-two weeks.   The doors will be open and the windows glass.  I welcome the public: locals and tourists, children and grandparents, art-lovers and critics to enter my doors and participate in these creations.  

Though I have always worked in the confines of my solitary studio, one thing remains true: I am inspired and impacted by my environment.  In the heart of the city, Hayes Valley, I envision an interactive art space that melds perfectly with the surrounding shops, restaurants, ice cream parlors, and parks.  For one year I will share my entire creative process with the hopes of awakening the possibilities in you.  

How many days of watching will it take for you to hear your inner calling?

How many weeks of watching will it take for you to recognize who you were, and are, and can be?

How many months of watching will it take before you pick up your brush?

If I Contribute To The LOOK and C. Campaign, What Will My Money Fund?

If successful, this Kickstarter will cover 88% of the year's rent.  In total $125,543 is needed to make the project happen.  I am investing the savings I have to cover the remaining 12% of the rent, insurance, utilities and supplies.  I chose Kickstarter over a single source funder because I think it is an inspired platform.  Kickstarter allows anyone to become a patron of the community that forms around believing in new adventures.

Risks and challenges

Baring tragedy, when funded, I will complete 13 paintings and share the entire evolution of both the work and creator.

As for your portion of the project, it is truly up to you how far you want to take it. I have grand illusions that everyone who sees this will be inspired to follow their most untouched dreams. But I honestly have no idea how this will affect you. Perhaps you will hate what I am doing so much that you decide to strike and set up a picket line. One day while marching with your homemade sign it starts to rain. Soaking wet, you run for cover to a coffee shop where the hipster barista informs you that the guy in front of you just ordered the last cronut. The guy turns out to be nice enough to offer to split it with you and voila, you and your soulmate live happily ever after.
Win - Win.
