Kareem Rizk

I was going through some sites I found a while back and happened to come across collage artist Kareem Rizk. All I can say is I love his work. They are very nostalgic and full of energy. His arrangements or colors and composition are great. Check his work out at , etsy or his blog.

anderson bathroom

I really like these colors, or maybe it's the old fashioned style. These will come up in my next painting and some new drawings. That's all.

my neighbors backyard

This is my neighbors backyard. I wanted to post some images of it because I think it is amazing. He is out there everyday working on it and we just love it. I don't think many people have a view like this when they are in their backyard. The first pic is our yard which shows the stone wall that faces our house. The rest of the images our the garden/ park, I am not sure what to call it. There are places to sit throughout the garden and relax or just admirer the surroundings.

this is really annoying

A male black bear died today in Rochester after is was tranquilized high up in a 40 foot tree. The bear fell out of the tree while a bunch of idiots thought they could catch it in a net. I mean, did these professionals really think they were strong enough to catch a bear after a 20 to 40 foot drop?? On top of that, they need a week to figure out what killed the bear!!?? This really angered me today and I think the situation could have been handled differently, maybe in a way in which a bear was not tranquilized and left to plunge to the ground from a 40 foot tree. In the words of Seth Myers, Really? Really!? If anyone cares to see the video, here is the link and the video is in the right corner. This just disgusts me.

If a man has talent and can't use it, he's failed. If he uses only half of it, he has partly failed. If he uses the whole of it, he has succeeded, and won a satisfaction and triumph few men ever know.

These are some small shelves I hung on the wall so I can check my work out on. I like them because they are not in the way. That's about it. I changed my banner at the top of the blog so let me know what you think please. I think the things I am doing are getting dull and old and would like to just freshen up a bit. Gotta stay fresh! The paint on the wall is from Jen when she gets in the zone, so I can not take credit for it, but I did steal it!

Another bad studio day under the belt. I feel like I just stared at a wall for 4 hours. Cut some paper down, taped it to the wall, cut a drawing down (which improved it), started a horrible painting/drawing, and scribbled with some colored pencils. These studio habits better end soon because it makes me not want to go there anymore. It is tough when your work is about nothing and you can't even think of how to make it about something. Does that even make sense?

To make matters worse, Gino just jumped on the chair and humped me from behind. Alpha role. Here are some images of the greatest dog in the world!

Oh yeah, Sparrow, get up with me this week! I am down to show you some work.
