beardart SoCal is fun. When they say it's gonna rain, you still get sunburnt. And they put up all these cute signs for the baby sharks. Neat. 1d

beardart An old Jewish man walked past while I was painting the other day, and asked me if I knew who the best artist was, to which he replied in an awesome Israeli accent, "GOD!" Well, amen to that, happy to be sharing so much studio time with the Oldest Master these days. 4d

beardart Had an absolute blast painting at La Jolla Cove today with Wade Koniakowsky, Jeff Yeomans, Greg Gorgas, Fay Wyles, and Jose Emroca Flores. All their amazing work is on display tomorrow in the sherwood auditorium of the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art for the San Diego Surf Film Festival. But wait there's more, the local paper printed that I'd be there painting on saturday with friends as well. I don't want let anyone down, and I just love painting out there so I'll be back and hope anyone can join me further up at the top of the point tomorrow around 10 or so. Please do not bring donuts. 1w

beardart Well, it's not raining out my window right now, so this year's SDSFF Plein Air Rodeo is on at La Jolla Cove at 9 am. 40% chance of rain means that 6 out of 10 days with this weather pattern would have been dry. Those are decent odds in my book. Besides, 40% chance of rain is a beautiful day in Humboldt. Come out and heckle.
Bring donuts... and a dry change of clothes. But mostly donuts.

beardart "Pray for Her"

At least that's what I just called it, I don't know what Skye would title it. I should ask him, he's just in the other room, but I think in light of the current events up on the Gaviota coast, right now that name just feels right.This was painted live last night at the San Diego Surf Film Festival VIP party as a collab with Skye Walker. Had a blast painting this one with Skye, he's good.

beardart Architecture of Flow
This was a recent live art piece I did to benefit the surf and skate club at Trinidad School. I had a few buddies and a handful of kids skating past my paint table and grabbing brushes to drag across the canvas set up a few yards away, then circle back to relay another pass. Did that for 20 or 30 passes or so then went to work building the painting on the architecture of flow they had laid out. There won't be any skateboards involved Wednesday night at the SDSFF VIP party tomorrow night, but I will be doing a spontaneous collaboration with my buddy Skye Walker. Looking forward to finding all sorts of flow. Besides, he fed me a dumpling on live TV here in San diego this morning so... wait, what?

  •   standardh_ Really digging a lot of your work and would love to entertain the possibility of working together on my multi-brand store launching in July. Do you sell prints, or just originals? Thanks! 3d

beardart Today is Sunday which means it's a fine day to check out my art at the @boardroomshow in del mar and score a ridiculous deal. Even if you're not a former world champ from Hawaii, I'll hook you up. I could use some gas money, and I'd rather not pack all those prints back up in the van. That sounds like too much work, for a Sunday, let's make this easy for us all. 2w
  •   vcaba21 I was in yesterday and you were busy talking with fans, so I didn't get to meet you in person. Your booth looked great and I regret not grabbing one of your prints while I was there. I hope you kill it today and my wife and I are definitely gonna grab a piece from you in the near future! Cheers! 2w
  •   scottydwhawhaah @beardart Hey Matt I met you at the Boardroom show. I'm from Dana Point. I'd love to pic up one of your prints. When is your next show? Or are you local 4d
  •   beardart @scottydwhawhaah I'm not exactly local. Ok. Not at all. I'm just down for a bit from Humboldt County. But my wife has family in Dana point and we'll be there for a bit next week sometime. I'd be happy to connect if we can work it out. 4d
  •   scottydwhawhaah @beardart sounds great, I'm available 😀 4d
