•July 1, 2019 • Comments Off on ZAE INTERVIEWS THE BAND KISS

40 yrs ago as I type this I interviewed the BAND KISS. #zaeart. I did child acting starting at a young age, I worked as a camera operator for many years. I have worked with Jimmy Carter former President of the United States of America, Max Cleland former US Senator, Jeff Foxworthy Showtime Special, Black Crows MTV Video, Herschel Walker Georgia Bulldogs , John Smoltz Atlanta Braves, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, and many many many more. Always involved in the arts. I played guitar, drew, painted. I still have a a painting I did at 6yrs old oil on panel. I have always been involved with the arts. My Mother having over come such HUGE obstacles was an art teacher. Art has always been my life.

I remember interviewing KISS at 11 yrs old at the Omni. I spent all day traveling back to Atlanta to get to the venue in time. Went back stage and met the band. I was in shock seeing them without their makeup. Going backstage for the 1st time was a big deal. The only band I saw before KISS was The Swimming Pool Q’s at a bar parking lot. Times were different back then.

When I look back on the live recording (yes I was in the same room with them) I am so proud of myself. I have always tried my best at everything and anything I have done. I have been in a ton of situations like finding myself in an acrobatic plane or being at a Tom Petty concert protecting an endangered bird. (Crazy Story) and on and on.

I have been blessed to share my art with so many and to have had the opportunities I have.

Tonight was a time to reflect and say Thank you to the band KISS for letting me share their time. Also Ros Radley for reminding me on this day 40yrs ago.

Please do not forget to support my art. My paintings have sold around the world. Also a few sculptures through out the U.S


“Back Home”

•June 29, 2019 • Comments Off on “Back Home”

This painting titled “Back Home” is a large oil painting. Measuring 72×60″. 1st I dragged this blank large panel from Atlanta Ga back to California. I then proceeded to spend years playing with this piece. As I had no connections when I moved back home. I knew I could take my time on this piece. Slowly this piece developed with multiple thin washes of oil paint. I knew this was a statement piece. This piece is special to me. I am trying to untangle the California art scene, it’s been rather interesting.

In the painting there is a statement “this way home” well I guess it is true – you can check out anytime you want but you can never leave.

So I am back in California trying to network and read all the signs presented to me in 2019. The future is coming beware I am in it till the end! Grass roots campaign! Fell free to be involved with my art!

& Plz enjoy your hone!

I am settled in my new location outside of San Francisco. I have my new studio up and running. I am very excited to be hard at work. I also have been able to visit SFMoMa where I saw this beautiful work. I see why his art made people CRY! I am looking for new art brokers and starting everything from scratch. It has taken sometime to up root and come back to where it all started California. It feels so great to be back to my original home and creating! I think about my hands and how many people have ended up with my works throughout the world –Thanks for caring for my Babies….#ZAEART    Zaeart
