I have been "tagged" by Jean Victory... most of you know what that means. I list 7 things about myself. I was tagged by, I forget who, about a year ago so I'll try not to repeat anything! I think it was only 5 things last time though. Oh well, here goes:
  1. This one is for Jean since she is a fan of Alice in Chains. I am from the small town in OK where Jerry Cantrell's father("Rooster") is from. I actually played on the same little league baseball team with Jerry's brother, David.
  2. I have climbed the highest point in Texas: Emory Peak 7,795 ft. in the Chisos Mountains... I know, I know...but it's Texas.
  3. One of my favorite bands to listen to while painting: Godspeed You Black Emperor
  4. I am restoring a 1972 Chevy pickup( more of a "resto-rod" ) "frame off"...which means everything is completely disassembled and either replaced or reconditioned. Right now, it is at a rolling chassis state.
  5. I have been to Iceland...sort of. Actually never go off the plane, but did land there!
  6. I have been scuba diving off the Palancar Reef in Cozumel, Mexico.
  7. The Darjeeling Limited was one of my favorite movies from last year.

I am now supposed to "tag" other people. I'll have to think about that since many of you have already been tagged.

I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to join a fantastic group of artists represented by Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, OK. Lovetts is an established gallery of 30 years and I am excited to have my work shown there. In addition, I will be participating in the gallery’s 2009 Spring Perspective show. This is a five artist show and will open in February 09. Very exciting!

Copper Copper

Copper Copper---- oil on masonite -----approx. 8" x 10"

Small painting of an even smaller toy police officer with befitting metallic finish. The actual little toy was blue, suitable as well, but shiny things fascinate me and I wanted to try to make it look copper. I hope it comes across as such...this is the first time I have ever had to attempt to capture the look of copper, and wasn’t too sure I could, hence the small format. I figured a smaller size would be easier to throw across the studio if it didn’t cooperate.
