Video: The Painting of Angry Women in Rock

12 minutes: painting three at the same time. I mentioned how this can be beneficial, but that segment got cut from the one hour of footage. It reduces overpainting when I have another painting to move to and then, after being involved with that one, returning to the first one I get a refreshed idea of where it’s at.

Mecca Normal “I Walk Alone” at Tobi’s 50th

Erin Smith’s video from July, 2019 “MECCA NORMAL doing I WALK ALONE at Tobi Vail’s birthday party!! SO beautiful and perfect and intense to be able to see you do this at this time in this town with all of the people in the audience you have influenced so deeply. You were the first band I ever saw play Olympia in 1989, at Reko Muse Gallery with Tobi Vail and @mskathleenhanna in the audience along with me. THANK YOU MECCA NORMAL!! THANK YOU Jean Smith!!! This weekend has been nothing short of INCREDIBLE!!”

Business Opportunity

Seeking an investment of approx. $100K CAD // $75K USD in exchange for 5% of my (net) painting income

Small house currently being used as a craft / art gallery on the main road on a desirable gulf island. Listed at $274K CAD // $207K USD. I would live and paint there while running a gallery of my work and that of visiting artists. I’m an excellent salesperson!

I would have low overhead / no mortgage making it easier to pay back the investment.

Imagine: I hit the big (or even the reg. price) league and you’re in for 5% FOREVER.

Math?: If I end up selling 10 @ $5,000 (or 500 @ $100) paintings a year = $50,000 gross = approx. $40,000 net, an investor would get $2000 a year.

Lots of room for additional buildings or RV to accommodate the Free Artist Residency / investors.

Next Stop?: Dragons’ Den // Shark Tank

Free Artist Residency for Progressive Social Change

I spoke to quite a few people about the Free Artist Residency on the Mecca Normal 35th anniversary micro tour. Having just recently asked a philanthropist for funding ($250,000 USD), I felt bolstered by the overall sense that people we know believe there is money around for this project, and that it is both worthy and logical. I will continue exploring funding from foundations and individuals interested in art that contributes to progressive social change.

Part of my plan is to involve technologists to broaden the reach of work created at the residency. This isn’t just a house in the woods (with the beach within walking distance) where a handful of artists kick back for a week or two. With a technologist on site (for some number of months a year or possibly living on the island) work at all stages can be connected with art museums, conferences, classrooms etc.

With the Art World in tatters and capitalism on its last legs, I’m keen to engage in non-traditional dissemination of art and ideas that intend to create progressive social change.

Getting way ahead of myself, but I’d like to announce that Katherine Paul of Black Belt Eagle Scout is the first artist invited to the Free Artist Residency for Progressive Social Change.

I have $4000 USD earmarked for a recording studio, so I’ll be getting on that as soon as I secure the facility.

Not as desirable, but affordable without funding. Not on the ideal island. Not on an island at all. Artist residency could be in an RV on the property.
