This is a (not very well photographed) detail of one of Krispen's paintings. It was just laying there in the studio and I just had to take a picture of it... I'm curious to see what Colleen sees in this one... I can kind of see the Virgin Mary wearing a captain's hat, holding Baby Jesus.

Krispen and I were in grad school at the same time and now we share a studio. She does these big, flowy acrylic paintings.

I gave Jenna a ride back from the car dealer today and we stopped at On the Border and ate way too much Mexican food. It was really yummy, though.

When I got home this evening, I had to take a nap. I'm getting old! No, I blame it on the food and the heat. Yeah, that's it.

Cathy came over to get some images of her encaustic workshop pieces on a CD. She's going to enter them in the VAST regional show. I hope she gets in. We need the encaustic art to take over. It's all part of my plan for world domination.

Sam is doing "art camp" this week with another Cathy. Really just 3 hours of art class for 4 days. He said he worked on ceramics today - a sculpture and some tiles. He does fun stuff. I think he has fun, too. At least it keeps him off the streets.

Linkages -
For some reason this really made me laugh. Hitler Cats.

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but it's kind of fun. Not Starring. The roles that actors turned down or didn't get for one reason or another.

Oh, and if you like The Office, be sure to check out the "webisodes."

I originally had Georgia O'Keefe images floating through my head, then you went and said Virgin Mary. Way to anesthetize me... :)

Okay..I saw a big blue genie, holding a smaller gray genie puppet..UNTIL i saw the captain's hat!... oh..and Deanna, thanks for the comments, but when you said.."I don't have the patience for landscape, but I do appreciate the work that goes into them".... you apparently have NO idea that I paint those in less than an hour and a half! Some take no more than an hour, others maybe 2...but hardly ever more than that. (PSSSTT! don't tell anyone!) One has to paint quickly to do "plein air" and even my studio paintings have evolved into quick paintings to keep the "impressionism" effect, otherwise I get too bogged down with details.---bob

Yeah, I see the Madonna and Child. But something about it is very captivating - I looked at it for a while.
