A new #Vancouver @JumpforJoyPhoto #Mural is in the works! Happy to announce partnership w @FreeOfViolence!!

It’s official! I’m making a new – even bigger – Vancouver jump for joy photo mural :)

Two weeks ago my Jump for Joy mural was removed. A couple of days later, I wandered around looking for potential walls to make a new mural and… I came across this wall and knew this was the one.

IMG_7025

I immediately went into the print shop in the building and asked who owned the building. I was told it belongs to BC Housing. I looked them up and found they were only a few blocks aways so went straight to their office, they said I would need to speak to Atira Women’s Housing. Atira is a community-based organization that supports all women and children who are experiencing the impact of violence committed against them.

I looked up Atira’s location and went to the leasing office in Coal Harbour.. they told me the number to call, which I did, and had the most wonderful response. 1 or 2 emails and we scheduled to meet today..

Now, I am proud to announce that I am partnering with the Atira Women’s Resource Society and making a massive mural on the corner of Abbott And Pender St. in the most amazing location situated between Downtown Vancouver, Chinatown and Gastown aka DTES :)

Let the fundraising extravaganza and jumping photo blitz begin!

I’ve already started preparations for a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the funds as I would love to get started on the mural asap .. at the same time, I will need to do at least 4 shoots a day over the next couple of months to have enough photos to for the mural.

My last mural was 9000 sq ft, this wall is the same width, but has 3 more stories so a very rough guess is that it is around 20,000 sq ft! So thats a lot of wall to cover with jumping joy and a lot of funds to raise to make it happen.

Once I have the exact square footage I will finalize the budget and begin the Kickstarter. Stay tuned and please support the project if you can :)

the work of creating… #quote #create #work

“Time is the raw material of creation. Wipe away the magic and myth of creating and all that remains is work: the work of becoming expert through study and practice, the work of finding solutions to problems and problems with those solutions, the work of trial and error, the work of thinking and perfecting, the work of creating. Creating consumes. It is all day, every day. It knows neither weekends nor vacations. It is not when we feel like it. It is habit, compulsion, obsession, vocation.” – Kevin Ashton

I love doing jumping pics as much as I love taking them of other people. This is one (of several attempts) I did with the camera timer. It always makes me laugh doing this… I surely look silly jumping around and laughing to myself as people happen to pass and don’t see the camera :) It’s good fun.

Get out and play today, create something new, share your joy.

Courageous is the soul who adventures into time and space to learn of their divinity. @mikedooley #quote #courage #perceptions #focus #jumpforjoy

“Courageous is the soul, who adventures into time and space to learn of their divinity. For while they cannot lose, they can think they have, and the loss will seem intolerable. And while they cannot fail, they can think they have, and the pain will seem unbearable. And while they cannot ever be less than they truly are – powerful, eternal, and loved – they can think they are, and all hope will seem lost.
And therein lies their test. A test of perceptions: of what to focus on, of what to believe in, in spite of appearances.”
– Mike Dooley, Notes from the Universe

Possible new location for bigger Vancouver @JumpforJOYphoto mural

Less than a week since the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural came down. It was quite emotional saying goodbye… BUT every ending is a new beginning and I already have some potentially exciting news :) Yesterday I walked around the DTES looking for a big wall for a new mural and found – the perfect wall! I tracked down the owner of the property, they love the idea and we are meeting to talk about it in a couple of weeks. I’ll keep you posted!

“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.” ― Anaïs Nin
