1. Place Pigalle Solo Show
2. Open Studios 2004
3. Art Gift Cards

So the holiday decorations are up in the stores (well, they have been since Halloween), the nights are starting earlier and earlier, and turkey (or tofurkey all you veggies out there) is getting set to smell up the kitchen. And if there's one other thing you can count one, one thing that won't let you down it's....

The Bluestninja Newsletter!

Monthly, to your doorstep, to distract you during your workday and entertain you with happenings in a ninja world.

1. Place Pigalle

My first solo show is ongoing at the reddest bar in Hayes Valley. I spent 6 hours setting it up on Halloween Day, then played a mean game of kickball in the park and ate fried chicken to celebrate before dressing as a blackjack dealer for Halloween. But you don't really care about that, do you?

Opening night was the night after the election, so it wasn't the most cheer of events I've been involved in. But thanks to all who came out - about 40 people. It felt very therapeutic. I've posted some shots of the setup. The show is still going through December 14 so go check it out.

2. Open Studios 2004

Wow! I mean, humbled am I. This was my third year of doing Open Studios and it was the biggest, baddest, dirtiest, and most successful one yet. Over 220 people came through over the rainy weekend and I sold 31 paintings, including all of the first Black and White series, one duct tape painting, the lovely "Foot in Cool Waters," and I traded The Dancers for tickets to two different operas. Good trade I think.

I've posted some photos of the show (courtesy of Susie Shapira and my own little digital camera).

3. Art Gift Cards

The holiday season is coming up and I'm offering up Art Gift Cards. I've done one in the past that worked out very, very nicely for all involved. Basically, it works like a gift certificate.

We can discuss how much my price range for paintings and what a certain amount of money translates into artwork.

Then, after deciding how much of a gift certificate you would like to give someone, you can send me a check and I will send that person an online gift card for the amount.

I'll invite them to look at my web site or come see my work in person and work with them to find them something they would love to own.

So, if you want to give some art this holiday season, drop me a line at info@bluestninja.com.

Thanks for all the continued support and I hope fall treats you with pie!

Ciao!
