This is the title of my new series of work. The title has a couple different meanings. First, it is based on the specific type of paint I use. It is called ‘interference’ paint. “An Interference color is laminated mica pigment that “flip-flops” from a main color to a weak complimentary one. The phenomenon is similar to naturally occurring light interferences such as gas or oil on water, or a butterfly wing. The position of the viewer and the direction of the light source crea

I have been painting!!! I mean really painting. It feels great. I haven’t painted like this in about 3 years. I have done small stuff like my “Hiding in Plain Site” series and the Avatars and I have also done Mixed media work, but this is different. This is on canvas. I know, it shouldn’t make a difference but it does. I am so excited about this new direction. I am diverging from my usual color palette into something a bit more subdued. While I say that, I look at the paintin
Art? What art? Anything new you ask? Nada. Zip, zilch, nada. I have tons of ideas in my head, written down on various pieces of paper around my studio, but nothing tangible. Nothing physical to show for it. I know, I know… I KNOW, that I need to work. I just need to create. I don’t know what is stopping me. Work, money, life? Why am I procrastinating? Where is my motivation, my inspiration? I need to clean my studio. Oh wait, is that a form of procrastination? Hmmmm I am kind
Support In October I opened my studio for the 3rd time for the Brewery Artwalk. As always it was such an amazing experience. I met so many new people, caught up with long time friends and made great connections for myself and the Brewery Artwalk Association. Oh did I tell you? I am now the President of the Brewery Artwalk Association!!! Help me raise money to continue my project “A comfortable skin.” I want to buy 11 more mannequins, plus size/full figured women to make an in
I was honored to be invited to display the avatars at Create:Fixate a one night art event in Downtown LA last night. It was a fun night of art, music, drinks and friends. I hung out by the Avatars and decided to take photos of the people taking photos with them. It was an interesting experience. I wanted to jump out of my skin every time someone grabbed their boobs!!! There were signs saying don’t touch… but alas people still did!! I almost feel violated!! Geesh!!! All in all
Please join me Sunday Oct 20th at 10am pst/slt as I finish the durational performance where I delete the entire contents of my Second Life Inventory. The performance/installation Binge and Purge was going to slowly be played out until the end of December. While I still have the space and will continue the installation on a conceptual level, I am going to finish the purge and delete my entire inventory on Sunday. One of the main reasons I am finishing tomorrow is because of t
This last weekend I opened my studio for the 3rd time for the Brewery Artwalk. As always it was such an amazing experience. I met so many new people, caught up with long time friends and made great connections for myself and the Brewery Artwalk Association. Oh did I tell you? I am now the President of the Brewery Artwalk Association!!! Because the holidays are close at hand and in post-Artwalk/inventory clearance fashion, I have decided to hold a weekend only sale. Everything
I decided I had to get the ball rolling on clearing out inventory, making room for new work and getting money to pay for new mannequins, video software and canvases. Especially since I have to keep working on bigger and better creations!! From now until this Sunday, I am giving an extra 20% off discount on ALL my art. This goes for my Little Abstracts, big paintings and new collages. (Shipping is extra) My complete inventory is shown below. Send me an email if you find somet
I was just talking to a friend, like 2 minutes ago about falling asleep in our chairs in front of the computer. His excuse is he has a son who as he puts it “adds a whole new layer of exhaustion to -why- you are falling asleep in the chair (and more than not you can’t take a nap because they’ll burn the house down.)” So ok, I will give him that. My excuse? Well, this is what I have going on; I am social media manager for the Brewery Artwalk Association I am helping put toge

All original, one-of-a-kind paintings. Drop me an email if you would like to purchase the Little Abstracts.
When I first found Second Life two and a half years ago, my best friend Jordan, had a show for me in her gallery. We titled it “The Secret Lives of Gracie Kendal.” It’s funny, as you grow up and mature in Second Life, you start to think about who you are and what you want in all lives. I am finding that it isn’t so ‘secret’ after all. And really it never was. Of course, we all have parts of ourselves we don’t share with anyone…and in that case, we do have secret lives… but fo
