So, Happy New Year, the Project is done.
I was the last live person painting in San Francisco
(sounds exotic out of context :))
And here is the finished triptych along with some details.
The painting was up for auction on Patrons ebay site for 10 days and is sold. The final day was Jan 15th.
The time lapse video should show up in a couple of days.
The letters above on the left are painted on the side of the canvas. Another little facet to give a little more context to the visual story.
The whole piece is about scale and multiple points of view making a bigger whole than is apparent at first.
and some more visual details
can you find the welder in the middle painting? It's sort of small, the bumps are the canvas thread...

Patrón Spirits is inviting a new kind of window shopping this holiday season. Starting November 15 and continuing through January 2, 2012, the Patrón "Simply Perfect" Art Project will showcase live, working art studios that offer artists the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind works of art for auction in support of four local organizations.
Across the country, four "Simply Perfect" Art Project studios occupy formerly vacant storefront windows that have been transformed into spaces of creativity and imagination for nearly 30 up-and-coming artists. Given approximately one week each, artists will create an original painting, sculpture or other work based on their personal interpretation of Patrón tequila's "Simply Perfect" mantra.
Watch the Artists on our YouTube Channel
Each studio is active throughout the week and weekends during afternoons and evenings. During all other times, the art will be on display in each window, along with a video screen showing the progression of the collective work. To view the art in the making, please visit one of the four "Simply Perfect" Art Project locations, including:
Chicago – 50 East Chicago Avenue (between North Wabash Avenue & North Rush Street)
Los Angeles – 7024 Hollywood Boulevard (between North Sycamore Avenue & North Orange Drive)
New York City – 454 West Broadway (between Prince Street & West Houston Street)
San Francisco – 825 Howard Street (between 4th Street & 5th Street)
The proceeds from the purchased pieces will benefit local art organizations that are partners on the project, including:
Chicago Artists' Coalition (chicagoartistscoalition.org)
Los Angeles Art Association (laaa.org)
New York Foundation for the Arts (nyfa.org)
The Artists Guild of San Francisco (artistsguildsf.com)
Please visit often over the next ten weeks as there will be over 30 pieces of unique artwork to bid on.
