Very happy to be painting a piano as part of LACO’s Play Me I’m Yours.
The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra presents Play Me, I’m Yours, a community-wide art and music installation featuring 30 pianos across Los Angeles County. Designed and decorated by local artists and community organizations, the pianos are available for three weeks for everyone to enjoy. Play Me, I’m Yours honors acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane’s 15th anniversary as LA Chamber Orchestra music director. The installation launches on April 12, 2012 at noon with a simultaneous play-in of Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I at all 30 pianos.
Here are a few before photos of my piano. Will post some progress shots as I go.

How BIG did KARL HOLZ, JOE LANZISERO and Walt Disney Imagineers dream? So big that The Disney Dream – the Disney Cruise Line’s third iconic ship – has been sailing the Caribbean since January with 4,000 passengers aboard, hosted and pampered by a crew of 1,500 in the quintessential cruising experience.
Join us to see the design concepts and hear the behind-the-scenes stories of The Dream from Joe Lanzisero and Karl Holz.
Just finished up this painting up for the upcoming Affair of the Arts benefiting Ryman. It is held yearly at the beautiful home and and garden of my good friends the Sklars.
