Coke Bottle with Flowers

I intended to paint the Coke. But then I drank it all. It’s kinda my thing.

(Also…tomorrow Annabelle and I kick off our Big MFA Program World Tour. 2013. Hopefully I won’t say anything too ridiculous. See you in a bit!)

Tile with Flowers

Starting tomorrow I will be away, attempting to photograph… a wedding. I’ve never attempted event photography… please wish me luck… I’m not the best with this many moving parts (I really, really hope I don’t screw it up)! Have a great weekend, everyone – see you in a week or so!

Glam Flower

Did I just rock a bedazzled backdrop? Because… it seems like… that… just… happened.

More spring bits. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Maximillian Cohen: “9:13, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six I did. The doctors didn’t know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see.”

Complements of Spring

A flower-dealy finally showed up outside, so I thought I’d introduce some CrAzY complementary colors today. Eye-protection might be helpful. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Francis Whitman: “You love me!”

Peter Whitman (with Francis in a choke-hold): “Yes I do!”

Jack Whitman: “I love you too, but I’m gonna’ mace you in the face!”

Grunge Orchid

It’s been a busy weekend of getting very little accomplished. So… here’s… a… flowery thing. It might not look like much, but it does a decent Eddie Vedder impression. Should be able to do one, anyway. Grunge and all.
