Ginos birthday was on the 18th.  Mine is today.  We share August.   In celebration, I will post a drawing of Gino with a birthday hat.  Artist Aaron Humby created this image after I posted a picture of Gino on Facebook.  I thought I would share and shamelessly plug my birthday.

Pretty sweet, right?

monday morning

I am running on Dunkin this morning and now I feel gross.

Mondays music will be brought to you by Kanye West.  The song is Runaway.  The video is kind of odd, but I love the background color of the warehouse mixed with the cream tux and ballet dancers.  Real simple.  This is the edited version because the video quality is better then the unedited.  If you like this video there is a movie version about 34 minutes long on you tube.  He may be considered an asshole, but I like him.

naked and famous

I love the song Young Blood by The Naked and Famous.  I just bought the disc and I really like it.  I really like everything.  The video was well done and really represents the song. I will listen to it in the studio today and try to shake off some bad luck.  Hope you like it.

spaceman 3

David Mach coat hanger sculpture of a spaceman.  More work here.

spaceman 2

Sticking with the spaceman theme, once again on my blog I give you the Killers performing Spaceman.  Oddly, I do not see a spaceman.


These are all over Rochester.  I wish they were mine.

still painting

I continued to paint today......

It's a funny thing when I am in the studio.  I worry so much about every brushstroke, every color, if the image is exactly in proportion etc.  What I am saying is I worry to much about making art.  Others say it is therapeutic, some say fun.  I sit overanalyzing and thinking just to come up with paintings of my dogs. I only mention this because of the images above.  I am wondering if I should have left the colors of the top image.  The bottom image is not as blue as the actual piece though.  I also painted over the orange on the bottom after the image was taken.  I like it better with the orange now.  Just sayin.

My Morning Jacket

Starting the week off with Holdin onto Black Metal by My Morning Jacket.  I was a bit disappointed that there is not an official video, but I like the song so much I had to post it.  Have fun!

I came across Nick Lepards work while searching for Jenny Saville paintings.  Here is his site.  Here is some of his work.

white paint update

I now have white paint.  Underpainting, Mixing and Titanium white.  And some Buff Titanium.  So I painted.

Not sure why the first image is blurry, sorry. 

the killers

I'm starting Monday off with The Killers.  Mr. Brightside.  The record reminds me of 2005 or 06 when I was in the studio preparing for a show.  It always takes me back.
