Late Night Painting Session – GoPro Time Lapse

When I painted this batch of small watercolor paintings I did it like a nerd with a GoPro strapped to my chest. Here’s how that turned out.

I’m trying to learn video editing and putting that together took WAY longer than it should have. Now that I have five months of GoPro video collected it would be really nice to do something with it all.

All of those painting are still available and in the shop.

Oh yeah, sorry if you got motion sickness watching that.

Thanks for looking!

Pack Rat Life, New ACEO’s And Some 4×6’s

Working small as of late. Sometimes working small is great because it can make you feel more accomplished. Just the act of finishing something feels good. Especially, for art procrastinators like myself with a dozen or more unfinished paintings in the studio. Speaking of studio, have you seen where I’ve been working the last month?

Yeah, I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet here on the blog, but Neal Breton and I were forced out of our Paso Robles studio by the sassy little cry baby bitches that run the joint. Anyway, I’ve been working at home in the garage, which has proved to be challenging. Somewhere in the back there is a little table that you can’t see in the photo and that’s been my work space for the past four weeks. That’s probably another reason I’ve been on this small painting kick. Anyway, for those concerned, we just signed a lease and paid rent for the new home of our Fiasco Gallery and we hope to open to the public in a couple of weeks. More on that later, including the addition of rock star artist Bret Brown to the roster. And speaking of rent…

Here are some new ACEO’s, which are business card sized paintings.


“Mini Owl”
$15, plus shipping

“Mini King”

If you purchase any of these ACEO paintings I found some nice frames for them at Michael’s. They were double matted and the opening was made for this size of art/photo. I’m sure Aaron’s Brothers and other similar stores all have at least one frame that would work for this size.

And here are three new 4″ x 6″ paintings done in the same style, just bigger. These are a much more common size and every place that sells frames will have a lot to choose from in this size.


“The Salesman”
$20, plus shipping
4″ x 6″ – watercolor and ink on paper.

“Rebel Owl”
$20, plus shipping

Aww…People Think About Me. And For Totally Different And Unrelated Reasons.

So, a few days ago I received three different messages from three different people that went out of their way to show/tell me something that reminded them of me. And that just makes my heart all mushy.


My photographer buddy, Tom, thinks of me when he buys india ink because he knows I’m a sucker for the stuff.


My friend Amy discovered this amazing Thai tea thing-a-ma-bob and thought of me because she knows I’m a sucker for the stuff. I haven’t tried it yet, but next time I find myself in the vicinity of a Fresh & Sleazy you can bet your sweet Thai tooth I am going to try one out.


And my lovely lady, who is one of the few people that is privy to all my crude, perverted and disgusting humor, found this gem. With a name like Fart Magazine, would you expect anything less? I certainly hope not. Now, if only they’d provide a list of the songs on that mix cd.

Thanks for reading!

Flashback Friday

I know I know…Friday is almost over, but let me tell you, it’s been a busy day. I won’t get into the details because that’s a whole post of it’s own, but I will say this. It was good being busy. I had a great night.

For today we are going through Sketchbook #9, which I drew in from June 2002 – May 2003.

Tattoo!

This is the third tattoo I know of with my artwork. It’s very exciting to know there are fans that like my work enough to get it permanently added to their body. Thanks for the support, Laura!
