Oil on canvas, 6″ x 6″ $90
Woo Hoo! 2/3 of the way through. I’m definitely at the what-the-hell-am-I-going-to-manage-to-finish-before-midnight-today stage. This time it was a tiny board. Clearly I’m still thinking about the Year of the Dog.
“Lap Dog,” oil on canvas board, 7″ x 5″
I have sleep issues.
“Ghost Owl,” oil on canvas, 6″ x 6″
This is Colorado, after all. Oil on canvas, 5″ x 7″
Plus some hillbilly music. I’m fascinated by how much Hank Williams III looks and sounds like his grand dad.
A tiny 4″ x 4″ oil on canvas today. Not sure where this came from, really – my subconscious must be liking the thought of drinking Mojitos on a beach somewhere. It’s not going to happen anytime soon, but it’s a nice dream nonetheless. A snowstorm has begun in Denver.
“Island Dream,” oil on stretched canvas, 4″ x 4,” $75
Getting to the point in the challenge where I’m thinking damn, this is tough. Almost didn’t make it today but pulled through late with this little 7″ x 5″ oil on board.
“Sure Love,” oil and vinyl heart on canvas, 10″ x 8″
The tiny vinyl heart was made by the brilliant Brandon Borchert, who left this world 12 years ago.
This painting is on on display at Zip 37 Gallery as part of the Valentine/UnValentine show through February 18.
Titan Arum man is coming along well. He should be done in time for the show, which needs to be hung in – gads – a little more than two weeks.
The slightly larger painting that I have high hopes for is still giving me fits.
Don’t know if it will be done in time.
Delighted to find, today, an album (can I still call it that? It’s a digital download…) that celebrates the song writing of Joanna Newsom and is donating the proceeds from sales to Pakistan flood relief funds, via Oxfam America.
I hear less in the news about the tragedy in Pakistan than I do about Haiti, and I don’t know why that is. Proximity? Religion? I don’t think that the need is any less urgent.
Newsom’s songs are quirky, poetic, jangling,and joyously bone-quivering. It’s such good stuff, and interesting to see how other musicians interpret the work of this accomplished young artist.
Nonetheless, this is beautiful.
