EIGHT PLY

We Love Creativity & S8ology partnered up to present EIGHT PLY, an exhibition of over 40 artists all painting on skateboard decks. (If you remember, I participated in the Sk8ology event at ISM Gallery 2 years ago).  The style of that board was very different than the direction I went with this one.  Maybe it is just a phase, but I have really been into drawing ships and all things “nautical”  lately.  SHIPS. ANCHORS. ROPE. REPEAT. Yes, it’s overdone, but I don’t care.  I love it.

While I still love to paint characters, the past few months I have dabbled in patterns and silhouetted images.  It’s just a nice break from characters for the moment….although I am sure I will return to painting more of them soon.

The boards for Eight Ply were exhibited at ASR August 13-15th….and Thursday night was the after party / art exhibit at Syrah Wine Parlor. It was a great night. A HUGE thanks to Brooks who always manages to pull off the best events!

SAM LARSON – aka my husband.  His boards were a hit.

    kelli your painting is awesome! i love the ship and all the triangles!

    how do you decide what colors to go with?

    i am so indecisive when it comes to paint! i never really know what I’ll like so i just end up with a bunch of pencil drawings on ply wood:)

    anyway looks like a fun event!

      haha! I am actually quite opposite. I just go for it…and if I hate it…I go over it…and over it….and over it until it’s ok. Lately i’ve been into more subtle colors and using different shades of all the same color. Anyway…you ought to color up those pencil drawings! I wanna see em!

    I recently found your article through Google, but I’m going to definitely be looking into the archives to see how many other jewels you have buried in there. Keep up the good work!
