Skateboard Deck Art

Like many of my cohorts in the arts, I am asked to contribute a piece of art, or maybe books or sketches to this or that institution to be auctioned off. This despite the fact that artists are usually the ones most in need of funding themselves. In any case we are a bunch of softies and usually say "YES!" (and then later on ask ourselves "why did I agree to do this?") But sometimes it is also a very creative outlet, such as the Snowflakes for Robert's Snow Auction for Cancer's Cure. And last month, in the middle of a lot of mundane (but paying) jobs, I was asked by Rockland Center for the Arts to decorate a skateboard deck (What?) After finding out that a deck is just the skateboard w/o wheels, I said the usual YES! (And at 2 in the mornng "Why.....") But anyway it was a lot of fun. I didn't plan it very much, just let the paint brush do the work. It will be up for auction, along with 24 other decks, from Nov. 11- Dec. 16, to benefit Rockland Center for the Arts - 27 South Greenbush Road, West Nyack, NY 10994
