Rock The Porch - 1

Some Assembly Required
The Plum Creek Neighborhood of Kyle, Texas is currently hosting an initiative called Rock The Porch - link - where 15 rocking chairs have been distributed to local and area individuals and groups in order for them to put their artistic spin on them.

I was chosen as one of the artists. I'll incorporate much of what you've seen on here since day 1 in the design... photos of the people and places of the neighborhood and community.

I'll document my design process on here. So this is Photo 1.
Hope you enjoy the photos to come... and lets hope for a fantastic final product.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the other 14 chairs will look like.

Drew Womack @ Central Texas Speedway

Drew Womack
Last night was week 9 of the KOKE FM Free Texas Concert Series at the Central Texas Speedway in Kyle. This week was "Drew Womack and Friends." Drew Womack is an amazing singer-songwriter who co-penned the "She's Got It All" which became Kenny Chesney's first #1 hit, and his former band, Sons of the Desert, were the beautiful backup voices on the Lee Ann Womack hit "I Hope You Dance."

He's written with and for Pat Green, Cory Morrow, Robert Earl Keen, Josh Abbot and many others who make up the "Red Dirt Scene" of country music... and he's made fans of most of the names you'd associate with Texas Country/Americana.

Look him up. He's much better than my not-so-great iPhone photo above -

Negley Goes Green Fashion Show

"Negley Goes Green" Fashion Show
The annual Negley Goes Green Fashion Show was held on May 23, 2013. This is where students (and one mascot) makes clothing or other wearables out of recycled materials. My little one wanted to be an astronaut.. or more to the point.. "Jetpack Joyride" from the iPhone game.

There were some pretty fantastic and inventive outfits.

ROCK THE PORCH - Community Art Project

Rock The Porch example at Front Porch Days

Rock The Porch is an art-installation that will occur in the Plum Creek Neighborhood of Kyle, Texas. They will have several rocking chairs that will be decorated/designed by area artists. When complete they will be placed all over the neighborhood.

From their Website:
What's Rock the Porch?
Similar to the Cow Parade of Chicago and Guitar Town up in Austin, Rock the Porch is a public art initiative from Plum Creek that will manifest in the creation of 15 artistic rocking chairs by 15 local artists, groups and individuals. The unique art pieces will be placed in the public spaces of the neighborhood and within the greater Kyle community by the end of summer 2013.

I was chosen to be a participant. I plan to use my photos and decoupage the chair with images of Kyle and the Plum Creek neighborhood. :) Hope it comes out as amazing as it does in my head.
