Periodically, I work with my fellow artists. I may collaborate on a project or lend a helping hand ie. “Summer of Color” with Ed Massey.

This past week, it was my honor and good pleasure to  install for display, 4 kites; flying master pieces of space and motion, from “Tom Van Sant’s” collection. 

These colorful, enchantingly whimsical kites, will be on display, open to the public, from Oct.17 – Nov.11, 2012, in the lobby of Hotel Casa Del Mar, 1900 Ocean Way, Santa Monica, Ca 90405.

On Saturday, Nov.10, 2012, between 1 – 3 pm, in front of the hotel, (on the beach), there will be the flying of “Jacob’s Ladder”. This spectacular kite sculpture, consists of 200 segments, lifts up to 1 ton, measures 1/4 of a mile in length, and can be climbed by a person into the sky.

Custom wood carved plaque to commemorate the ‘Summer of Color 2010’

Looking back, the months of preparation for the ‘Summer of Color 2010’ were exciting. Both the volunteers and professionals worked hard in preparation and installation. Tourists and residents alike were dazzled. Now sadly, the colors will fade…..

To ensure the memory lingers, I decided to custom design and carve a wooden plaque to remind and delight the Massey Bros. Surprised, the Massey Bros., were grateful to receive this plaque.

Continuing from the previous post, the professional construction teams stormed the beaches with a screw gun in one hand and screws in the other to install the finished panels on the lifeguard towers ( with all the trimmings).

Amongst them was I and my team. In spite of being buffeted by the winds, and baked by the sun, we are honored to have participated in this transforming project by the Massey Bros.

The project now complete, we wish you all a color filled summer.
