what I look like occasionally...

The following are tags that various posts are grouped under, creating an index of posts by type. At the end of this index are listings by year (zzz-XXXX). These tags create a living index for this site.

Abstract Art - museo de rbcdart
For Richard, An abstract piece tends to happen when he’s responding to the ground, the paint, the razor blade, and whatever music might be playing… void of representation...
Ace - museo de rbcdart
An occasional muse. When they come around interesting and unusual things happen. The banana booth is one example. They wish to remain anonymous.
AI Sketch - museo de rbcdart
As the tools become available in a less censoring way, I will be sketching with them. Generative fill in Adobe Photoshop Beta gives me hope. Right now, replacing heads, creating backgrounds, making up stories... a lot of drifting into the dreamscapes.
Angelica Angeles - museo de rbcdart
Angel is an artist, muse, model, producer, director and activist in the LGBTQ+ community.

Artifacts - museo de rbcdart
These are the artifacts, the work I turn out. There is so much time invested in them. They were not made with a market in mind. I did try but so far this having patrons works much better. These artifacts count in my budget as advertising...
Art of Pride - museo de rbcdart
Art of Pride at the San Diego Pride Festival is always fun. Good people, it is a wonderful safe spot where people let their hair down and have a really good time. I have tried a lot of interactive pieces there over the years... John Keasler is a saint.
Available - museo de rbcdart
Miniatures, Artcards, Artifacts, and whatever made thing I have available for sale or show I will try and tag ‘available.’ Contact me and I will make sure it is still around and if it is, we can figure out some way it for it to be yours…

BLM - museo de rbcdart
All pieces and projects that are based on Black Lives Matter or Saying Their Names
Books - museo de rbcdart
Mostly picture books with remarkably few words. Still, so far, at least one tiny book of odd prose. Premium members are better off financially (20% discount) buying directly from me (Richard ChauDavis). Some books like the C-Note series are only available from Richard or (hopefully) a gallery or…
Bridgett - museo de rbcdart
Definitely a muse, was in and out of my life modeling during artgym and then a few times after, so many of her poses turned into finished works for me.

Video chats like on Zoom or Crowdcast. These are usually edited after the meeting and stored on Vimeo and here (if not deleted). Latest Zoom can be found at https://www.rbcdart.com/upcoming-video-chats/
Collaboration - museo de rbcdart
Maria, Miguel, Angelica, Kay, Ano, Kris, Ace... So much of the cool stuff is a joint effort. I’m not sure where or even if to draw the line between patron, muse, and model. The are all collaborators. Here are some cases where a line was definitely crossed.
DarkSpace - museo de rbcdart
The DarkSpace goes all the way back to college days and 3 or so decades after. I painted 2 garages black, created little dark spaces. It involved blurry pictures, getting the split minute instead of the split second. The trolls and angels we occasionally see in the corner of our eye.
Destroyed - museo de rbcdart
Destroyed, peeled, painted over, or thrown away is not the same as never created or abandoned.
Digital - museo de rbcdart
These are not just photographs (anymore). These use the photographic imagery to create something in the computer as opposed to on a cradled hardboard or canvas. To keep things simple this is finished work that may or may not have been printed, may or may not have been seriously played with. If I…
Dolls - museo de rbcdart
So I am still in a doll phase. Did a body of work trying to work with it. Photoshoots at the beach with mermaid dolls, the park with more normal ones. Went to swap meets and garage sales trying to find ones that had their hair trimmed, face painted, etc. Hung Barbies on the Christmas tree for qu…

Equinox Dance Troupe - museo de rbcdart
Very nice commision that in exchange for rights to the photos I would create a cover for an upcoming show program
Fanart - museo de rbcdart
Someone creates something wonderful and I want to sing along, play with the tune, offer my respects. Some creators encourage this participation, some don’t. I assume they do (unless their Disney). I am willing to destroy it, if they don’t. There is no money in this for me, willing to share if th…
Framed - museo de rbcdart
As of 2024, I have started working with Michelle of Ray Street Framers to finish the pieces. My works have gone from ‘ready to hang’ to ‘ready to hang gloriously.’
Fred Marinello - museo de rbcdart
Friend, Patron, Artist, and Inspiration. I have a lot of his work, he has a lot of mine. Not sure why he gets his own tag other than my life has become very woven with him. I expect there will be a lot of posts with something and also (incidentally) Fred Marinello.
Georgia Houston - museo de rbcdart
Muse and Model during the DarkSpace times
Hans Corner - museo de rbcdart

After ArtGymSD at Escondido and SDAI there was a pandemic. I got together with Michelle Gregoire and we figured out wages for video life drawing sessions. People signed up getting a month pass by pledging $25 on my Patreon account. Michelle had donations (thank you Kim Ogburn). Between us we cov…
Peeled - museo de rbcdart
Peeling is where I take the surface off a piece in part or whole. Often it is a finished piece. I do this because the paper left behind is wonderful to work on. The first couple times I did abstracts relishing the action between paint, pens, and Paper.

Promotions - museo de rbcdart
I will occasionally do promotion, offers, etc. Most of them are very good deals... I hope.
Proofs - museo de rbcdart
I used to print a proof sheet or have a whole roll printed into 4x6 pictures. Now I import into Lightroom to do basic developing and cropping where I can get an idea how to work each individual picture in a set. These are not actual proof sheets (I shredded those). These are basic images that I th…

These are the public posts on site that I remembered to tag public…

Room Service (no tell motel) - museo de rbcdart
I did a motel shoot in 3-25-2004. I created a composite that Joe Flazh! loved and wanted to do a whole show on. There were only 42 images from the shoot and I was (at the time) unable to take more snaps. So over a period of time I created 20 pieces and had a show in San Pedro! Family, interesting strangers, and friends came. All in all, a great experience.

When I came to San Diego I began showing and volunteering for SDAI under Shirly Viennese. Even then SDAI would show my work if a juror selected it. I was a board member, counter help, all around volunteer. After stepping away for a bit, I came back and started showing again. I also started volunteering and was hired occasionally as an independent contractor under Tim Fields and Kerstin Robers. I cleaned toilets, worked the register, and ran an Art Gym with Roberta Kuntz. SDAI has closed.
Sex Positive - museo de rbcdart
In 2023 I noticed HRC used the phrase Sex Positive to describe their philosophy. Wikipedia article on the concept: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex-positive_movement. Sex Positive is a subset of Sexual, a very healthy and inclusive subset that runs counter to the Sex Negative subset that I was raised on and scarred by.

Street - museo de rbcdart

Ano and I have been doing a series of fairly wild shoots inside the studio. This has been going on for a while now. I hope to organize things a bit under this tag. Odd seeing age set in... seems to keep things real.

I used this title for a series of interactive pop-ups and a one person show I had at SDAI. Tim Fields helped set the one person show up, did an incredible job. Tainted Milk refers to a milk tragedy that happened in China. Even the chinese milk candies I love so much were careful to explain on the…

Wildlife - museo de rbcdart
All creatures not human. So far, I have a passing interest in animals. Odd as I was going to be a zoologist and then a marine biologist when I was younger. I do think of individuals from other species as individuals; same as you or I. Feel a bit awkward interrupting their lives. Dogs and cats a…
Words - museo de rbcdart

zzz-2013 - museo de rbcdart
Back to painting, the SDAI thing ended strangely, still, so relieved. Mostly square artifacts is the next bold step. Using my photographs as underprints to pursue texture with paint will keep me going until 2022 where I decide to pursue other forms.
