orange oil is serious business
Using orange oil on a q-tip I was able to bring back this oil paint splattered timer back to its former glory. Orange essential oil is so effective I think if you don't wipe it off quickly it will burn right through plastics and varnishes. So if you try this, make sure to wipe it down after with a slightly damp cloth. Definitely smells better and less toxic than turpentine/ turpenoid.

The Art of Brooklyn Festival opens tonight!
I have 10 paintings on exhibit at the Art of Brooklyn Festival in downtown Brooklyn. The festival celebrates the art, music, and films of Brooklyn's creative community. The opening is tonight , August 20th, and runs until August 27th at the St. Francis College Theater at 180 Remsen St., Brooklyn, NY 11201
From the website:
"THE ART OF BROOKLYN is the first festival to bring “old” and “new” Brooklyn together to celebrate the creative energy that makes our borough one of the most exciting places in the world. We embrace artists from all over New York City; helping them gain exposure for their work while giving audiences the chance to experience points of view that might not otherwise get seen. Because to us, all Brooklyns are created equal."
Ticket and schedule info can be found on the website. As a special offer, all artists can purchase $5 tickets online at http://www. brownpapertickets.com/event/ 181514 and enter password: ARTIST
