New Art, Book signing in MIssoula tonight...and Roller Derby


So if you're a Missoulian or happen to be in the area you should stroll on down to Liquid Planet, have an espresso or the like. I'll be there signing books tonight (Fri. Sept 14). Also all of the pieces of mine that appeared in Rice's new book Living the Creative Life will be on display. For those of you who can't make it to Missoula i've given you a peek of the work above.

sorry I've not been blogging much. I'm still working on the big commish like a madman. It's close...I think...needs to be. Lifes been pretty boring since I got back from Dallas...up at 5:30 and work work work. Oh did I mention I had a Roller Derby Player in my Ten Second Studio workshop. We went down to see her play, but they were sold bummer. So we went bowling instead, which was fun...but it aint no Last Battle.

love the art~loved the class-hope to take more someday-even my husband said he would after seeing stuff "live" and he doesn't do art.

Absolutely stunning art pieces Michael. One thing I love about your work is the way you take the ordinary and turn it into the extraordinary. The end piece is not only amazing art but it's also a game of guess the object for the mind. I love seeing which bits of junk that you have incorporated into your pieces and how you make them look like they 'belong'. I could stare at it for hours and yet there would still be hidden treasures left to discover.
Fantastic work!

Love all your new pieces, Michael! I have been gone most of the summer, so out of the loop and haven't been on your site in awhile. You sound as busy as ever....what is the BIG commish? Best of luck with the book signing, I have a few of those coming up myself! Take good care....see you at Artfest!

Love the new pieces Michael! I especially love the "frozen" piece... maybe it's the shape of the over all piece... whatever, it's great! They are all really fantastic! Also love the piece with the hands on either side. Great touch.
