Drop Off Party for donations

to benefit the Taste of the NFL
The event was held at the Aqua Lounge,and hosted by Kent Rathbun & Heritage Auction Galleries.
Everyone loved the painting I donated and many thought it was part of the room decor. I hope it brings a good price at the silent auction.
Taste of the NFL has been around for twenty years now and raised $10 million for food banks across the US. This year the goal is $1 million and I'm confident they will reach it. It is an honor to be a small part of such a huge event.

Artist's Statement

Mining my own dreams

I'm a "dreamer" I mean I dream every night. I know people ( my best friend ) who say they never dream, and I think, how sad.
Last night I had a wonderful dream. I was painting in front of dozens of students on a large canvas maybe 6 by 10 feet hung on a wall. As I squirted paint, and sprayed water after it, controlling the flow with elegant expertise, an amazing then happened. Not only did a gorgeous abstract painting emerge, but every time I turned around the canvas had grown! By the end of the dream, my enormous  piece of modern art was perhaps 20 x 30 feet, and I was wrestling with some scaffolding just to get up high enough to address the area that bothered me.
Of course the meaning of this dream is obvious. I'll have to find a collector who needs to decorate on a large scale, and I'm wondering does Home Depot sell scaffolding?

New Year!

I was up untill 5am , not partying, but developing a new template for my paintings that I list on Ebay.
I am having a hell of a time getting everthing to position the way I want.
I've been learning how to write code that validates through W3 standards, but on Ebay you simply
can not do that.
I know I will figure it out, but I'm sooo tired.
