themackyworld Having some fun playing with a young boy and his pops. The Kinetic Sculpture was named Mr. Earth today. He was made for the SB Earthday Kids March & stood at the front of the main stage for the rest of the day. He gave and received love for the first time. 1mon

themackyworld #GUITAR #MUSIC Playing music has been a key to my creative success. In fact exploring many mediums seems to stimulate creativity in other mediums. For a year I'd record songs in a stream of consciousness way, then play the music back while painting & sculpting all day. The idea was to overcome that inner critic voice that says 'that sucks'. The truth is, it did suck but the only way to get better was to dominate that voice with productivity to rack up hours of experience. I called those recording sessions 'The One Take Sessions'. I recorded over 2000 songs through that process & created hundreds of art pieces. Some songs are on matthewmcavene.com if you dare listen. 2mon

themackyworld #PUPPET This #jesus puppet stood 16' tall to the top of the cross. I made this for a TV show called wastingtimetv.com which I also starred in as an artist who makes Special effects art & brings them into everyday situations to bring magic into people's day. The giant Jesus was built in 4 days, walked to a tourist filled beach in Santa Barbara. After hitting power lines and stopping traffic it proceeded to walk on water in the Pacific Ocean. It was Easter Sunday after the release of the then controversial 'Passion of the Christ' feature film & was intended as a non religious resurrection commentary response to the public reaction of the film. People were stunned, some laughed, some cried, some got angry. 2mon

themackyworld #BACKDROP #MURAL I painted this Wizard of Oz mural at a private school in Santa Barbara, CA. For a theatrical production of #WizardofOz. That movie influenced my work heavily. I was exposed to the movie as a boy, so painting this was a real joy. Plus one of the screenwriters from the original movie came by to see it which was an honor. It is 10' tall x 20' wide. It is Acrylic on Plaster. 2mon
