I just entered this piece to paint jersey barriers in NYC. Jersey barriers are the concrete links that are placed along a road or highway during construction. I've seen these things painted with works of art and always wondered who was responsible for it. Now I know. I'm not sure how many artists get chosen. The last contest back in Spring had 4 winners. Each winner gets a section in one of the five boroughs to be painted in one day with a group of volunteers. The barrier could stretch for over a thousand feet. If I get this, it'll be my biggest painting yet. Wish me luck.

'Swim', ink on paper, 2011
This piece was selected for an outdoor exhibit in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Arena which is currently in construction and is slated to open in 2012. The title of the exhibit is aptly titled WORK IN PROGRESS. Artists were told to enter works that depict that title in any way. I took the literal route and entered a piece that is unfinished. You can see how I work blocking in the outlines and filling them in in minute detail. The exhibit opens in October.
