A new era – #iThinkOutsideMyBox gallery and studio stolen

#iTOMB 11.25.13"

Today is both bitter and sweet. On Tuesday the entire art cart that carries the #iThinkOutsideMyBox gallery and studio was stolen from outside a restaurant I was in. Yes it was locked and chained to a pole but that din't seem to matter much. It was still taken.

And what did they get? The original historic box, all the art, the display and supplies – not to mention the custom designed cart that carried it all so efficiently for more than a year. Now it's time to rebuild and that's not going to be easy. I estimate around $500 to replace the baby stroller frame and gallery plus supplies plus work. The box and all my work will need to be repainted. Luckily, most of the work had been photographed, but not all of it. My apologies to the artists who's work was lost in this heist. New York. Art thieves. Go figure.

Happily, that same day, the nice folks at, a website of fringe art and alternatives New Yorkness had a few kind words for #iThinkOutsideMyBox. See their feature at the links.

Otherwise, I will be extremely grateful for any donations to help rebuild the gallery and studio. Look in the lefthand sidebar for donation options.

Like us on Facebook as well. I plan to carry on and can only do so with your support. 14,000 paintings and counting can't be wrong. Thank you all.
