Art in the Parking Lot

Uploaded: Oct 2, 2013
On Saturday, October 5, about 10:00 A.M. I'll start rolling in the parking lot near the basketball courts in San Ramon's Central Park, off Bollinger Canyon Road during the annual Art in the Park festivities. I'll be painting with two bicycles, three pair of skates, and at least one other wheeled object. After depositing a layer or two, I'll take a break, to let the paint dry, before moving onto the next layers.

During these hue hiatuses I'll be blogging in this space about my progress. I have been and will be preoccupied with this project through the end of the weekend. But I'm always on the lookout for arts-related story ideas and can be contacted at jobarry33@comcast.net or 925-918-7882.
