Kelly Tunstall and myself decided to drive our show out to Denver, Colorado for our collaboration show that just recently opened on November 1st. We also decided to rent a sweet soccer-mom minivan and we embarked in search of the Limited Addiction Gallery. Using the magical directional services of google maps as our guide, we sped out of the bay area and headed eastward... Read on if you are stout of heart (or just bored) ... Here's a few pictures of our travels.
Here is documentation of Daniel Dent documenting our work.
I had to do a few last minute amendments to pieces before we packed everything up.
Kelly and I arm-wrestled to see who got to drive first...
We said goodbye to San Francisco and got on the 80 heading East.
The open road will change a person and that became evident as Tunstall began to swear like a sailor and had a constant craving for Wendy's spicy chicken sandwiches.
With the sun on our backs, we drove through the barren wasteland of the Nevada desert.
Some of the rolling hills kinda looked like jabba the hutt... sort of... if you squint your eyes...Got it? Great...let's move on...
We ended up crashing in Salt Lake City at a hotel called Little America. See how the crown on their logo is frowning?
We kept on the freeway most of the time but, we stopped in Utah and Wyoming enough to know they love their heavy metal.
Utah was pretty tough on their anti-marijuana laws.
I loitered in Wyoming.
Truckers and I have at least two things in common... We both love Krull and super-sized redbull.
Finally, we made it to Denver... It looked a lot closer on the map good people of fecal face.
Limited Addiction Gallery is run by Dave Smith and he took really good care of us.
On Halloween we organized and hung the artwork. Luckily we had help...
We ended up staying with my cousin Moose and his family... It was super cool to reconnect with family.
We went trick or treating and I went as bozo, the heavy metal death clown...
The next day was the opening and here are a few pictures from that.
The art scene is really growing in Denver and it was cool to have people come out to check out our work.
People were super social and honestly curious about the work so we both spent a lot of time talking to cool people about our work.
My Halloween moustache somehow ended up being part of the installation.
A cluster of some of our smaller pieces.
Some of our awesome hosts in Denver with Kelly.
Another cluster of paintings... again...luckily we had help hanging!
Then some old friends showed up.

More people coming through to check out the art.

Who needs stinking badges?
Our paintings obviously need stinking badges.

So, the night wrapped up nicely with the entire Limited Addiction crew (posing in this photo) having an after party involving pizza and a dog named Arlo. I didn't get a lot pictures of that but, some things are for the best.
The party did take an odd turn when a wandering wizard showed up with his magic staff... He flew us back to San Francisco on his magic carpet and thusly brought our trip to a very satisfying end. Thank you Denver, thank you Limited Addiction, and thank you family! To see more visit Limited Addiction's website at: www.limitedaddictiongallery.com.
