on my bench.....

Whoa... three posts on one day.

Here's some pics of a work in progress started last week. A one string slide bass guitar made from a used hockey stick and some scrap metal for an as of yet to be determined project in the future. The string so far is 18 gauge utility wire. The next part is to wire it up with a hand rolled coil pick-up and support electronics.

turnbuckle tuning, scrap angled tail piece, black pipe floating bridge.

headstock; winder and top nut

another view of the blade, tailpiece, tuner, decorative emblem.

At the center of my world.

That's the title of a new artwork I have put into Ace Art's Winter Warmer Members Show. November 29 - December 12. The opening is Saturday November 29 at second floor 290 McDermot Ave. Winnipeg, 7pm and on.

I don't know if it flies yet.

the latest

I haven't done a post for awhile. A lot has been going on though.

I've been working on a soundtrack for Trip Dance's The Art of Displacement performance as of late. The show is going to be presented at the Gas Station Theatre 445 River Ave. here in Winnipeg November 28, 29 at 8 pm.

Other stuff

I moved into a rental house in Winnipeg's very storied and oldest residential neighborhood of North Point Douglas throughout September and October. It took a lot more work and time due to a few problems, namely the theft and destruction of my van in June and being injured in a bicycle/auto accident in September. Due to the generous assistance of many friends it's all done now and I'm getting used the house and neighborhood. I moved my art studio into the main floor too. So this winter is going to be interesting. ie: I shoveled snow for the first time in ages. I'm dealing with a mice invasion too amongst other things.
