Happiness is...crappy pictures, sneak peeks and letting go.


1. Here is a sneak peek into what I've been up to in the studio over the last week. Having my work so close to me since moving out of the trailer is convenient & enjoyable. I just go back and forth to the garage and house working. They are not finished, so be kind. :)


2. I forgot to mention a really great conversation with an old friend/studiomate I had a couple weeks ago. We had not spoken this candidly in a while and it was so refreshing and needed on my end. The talk really helped me to let go of some pre-conceived 'notions' I have had and so called standards I expected myself to uphold...even if wasn't in the best interest of the art I was producing. So, thank you Brandon. You are appreciated!


3. Amazingly lovely weather for SXSW week. If you are anywhere near Austin this time of year...you hear the hummmmm of music and the music lovers have flocked to central Texas for SXSW. Official and unofficial offerings are a plenty and there is no reason to stay inside. Some of the BEST people watching you'll ever get! Here are a couple of links if you need help planning your attack:

I've taken to using my wall as a paint palette as well.

Happiness is...photoshop.

I've been in the studio trying to get back into the groove after a hiatus. Here are some photographs to prove it!

my new little painting nook after moving out of the trailer

Detail of some paintings I've been working on...rain drops are my new thing I think
Just a nice juxtaposition of a stencil and some spray painted polka dots on the wall

I also had some fun in Photoshop...while waiting for paint to dry...

Happy Hump Day!!!

Happiness is...chchchchanges.

1. I'm trying to embrace the recent move out of my trailer and into my garage as I am trying to sell said trailer/studio. I decided, after much agony, that it was time to get more space. And my garage provides just that, and saves me money. So, there ya go. I'm sad to leave that part of my studio life behind, but looking forward to being able to work from home.

2. I am now an officially licensed artist. Yay. Artists to Watch will be carrying a greeting card with one of my images on it for their Holiday 2009 line. 100% recycled paper and soy based inks!!!!! Woo ah!

3. A clean dog!

4. Having a couple of days off to get things done!

5. RAIN, hopefully!
