From The Colonel

The Colonel is the name of my vw van (long story). Any way, the Colonel is also my studio away from studio. I often sneak away in it, park next to a park, and sketch. It provides a nice sanctuary from the crazy world, and the windows create automatic compositions for me. The sketching process forces me to focus my consciousness and helps calm my mind. It's a process that's more about the process than the output.

We Want Content!

Promoting my work is the 'grind it out' part of the art business - something I can hardly think of doing. Like I want to post something on Facebook, and I'm like, "but that will mean I have to FIND A PHOTO and then EDIT IT in Photoshop. Oh No, 5 minutes of work (hopefully). Maybe I should just be better organized. It's always been my dream to spend a few evenings shifting around and retitling digital files!

I am now slowly working on the basement studio/playroom/laundryroom/wrappingstation/storagearea, so maybe I'll post pictures of that sometime soon. Yeah, right!

on the road

just getting back to home and all that THAT entails after 30 plus days on the road, living out of a suitcase and jumbled bags of stuff strew everywhere.
joshua tree and ojai, these are the places i want to revisit. california has its problems---rich and poor stand out in stark relief in cities like santa barbara, where there are beaches you have to pay to get onto. 10 dollars to stick your feet in the sand and who does that hurt? not the rich guys next door who own their own piece of the coast.
colors are banging around vying for attention, accumulated and not recorded.
i have to get back to the studio.
how are you all?
