So, Munky King makes a DIY ‘Omi’ that is a cross between art and toys. Inspired by Chinese opera and Japanese Oni masks, they come packaged as blinds in different blank white shapes.

I decided to turn mine into a sculptural version of one of my abstract paintings. Primary inspirations? The sea & the human circulatory system.

I have to say it was kinda cool working in 3-D since I do that so rarely (pretty much never, really).

Finally made it to Death Valley National Park. What a magical place! There is something irresistibly inspirational about the desert. Maybe it’s the way the mountain tops burn pink at sunset or the way the desert palette appears refined one minute then comes alive bursting with color the next.
Amazing.
