I am fortunate to take part of an upcoming benefit, "Passion for the Cure", Art expressing hope, awareness, and celebration of life. Over 30 artists have been selected to share their gifts and their passion to help eradicate breast cancer. My "growing up together" piece has been selected as part of their exhibition which will run Sept. 28- Oct. 18 at "C Art Gallery" in Seattle. Proceeds from art sales will support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. To learn more about the event or to see the many other works by other artists that will be in the exhibit, please visit Again, I'm very honored to be selected to be part of this where I can do what i love and to help others all at same time. :)

Obasan Restaurant Grand Opening!!

Last night was pre-grand opening dinner party for the Obasan Restaurant, soon to be opened to the public sometime this week! The interior space was designed by Yukako Horiuchi and she asked me if I'd like to display some of my photography there so I said YES! :D I really like what Yukako did with the space, from paint color selection to the wall treatment around the counter area with the dark stained wood slats. The entire atmosphere feels very young and fresh but still sophisticated. With upbeat music in the background and the great food that Obasan chefs create, I see this as a great new happening space in lower queen anne. I've met the owners last night and they are young and so full of energy. I like seeing young people start new businesses... they just have so much passion and excitement in their eyes... you can almost feel it yourself and can't help but be excited for them too. So, if you're ever in Seattle and in Lower Queen Anne area, step into Obasan and eat some yummy food... :D Dont' forget to ask the owners to tell you the story of how they came up with their restaurant name... :)
Obasan Restaurant Address : 11 Mercer St. (across the street of Taco Del Mar and Melting Pot)

the music he plays... ahhh...

Today's photo is one I took of guitar musician, Trace Bundy. I went to see him live for an event, a benefit for Agros International and World Relief . His affection for music and to help people can really be felt by everyone who was there... simply, pure rawness... pure genius. I didn't have the best camera to capture the best photo when I was there but I still hope you all enjoy this photo as much as I do. And a treat here *^_^* : Trace Bundy with Sungha Jung playing "Canon" on acoustic guitar.
