Summer in my world.

If you live in or have visited West Hollywood over the past few months and stopped in for a bite at Guisado's on Santa Monica blvd. You no doubt have seen a few of my paintings.  I am the Featured Artist there through December.  I've been there since June so if you haven't made it there yet, there is still time. I've been rotating paintings on and off the wall so more of my works get a chance to be seen.

Check out the page about me on their website. [CLICK HERE]

The first to be displayed were "Sidewalk Sale" 36x48 oil on canvas, and "West Hollywood Daydream" 36x35 oil on canvas.

What's New, What's Happening.

I've been very busy settling into the new place and yet, I still seem to find time to paint.  As always, I'm mainly drawn to faces and primary colors so I'm glad that West Hollywood provides a plethora of faces to paint.  So much so, I've started a new project that started out strong but now is moving along at a snails pace.  I decided (for some strange reason) to paint the West Hollywood city map/logo as portraits of the people who work and live here.

That's 38 portraits.  Each portrait is only 3.5 inches square, does that make it easier or harder?

West Hollywood

Me with "A Rebel at a Rave"  36x36  Oil on canvas

I recently relocated to West Hollywood and I love it.

It does take some adjustments moving to WeHo from Napa.  West Hollywood is NOT Napa.

There, someone had to say it.

 While I am loving the vibrant and creative city that is West Hollywood, I do miss Napa.  Mainly I miss the wine and the food.  Gawd I really miss good cheese plates.  I order them at different restaurants around here and.... *sigh* , I miss Napa. (Any restaurant reading this is welcome to a free cheese board consultation, just putting that out there.  Having me as a regular has it's perks.)

Painting Rocks in Napa

Shawn Christopher Mooney painted rocks.

So lately I am fascinated by the rock painting phenomenon currently sweeping across the United States.  It started, I believe, with The Kindness Rocks Project and has evolved.  There are "rock clubs" and "rock groups" peppering the nation and most have Facebook Pages.

Painted rocks can be found coast to coast in every town, city, burb, and all the rural areas in between.  Literally, they are everywhere.
