plans? haha!





well, there is a saying. if you want to make god laugh, tell him your plans! since i last wrote, i have broken my collar bone. on a skateboard of course. i broke my other one years ago on a bike. it is quite a painful injury. typing sucks with one hand so this will be short. i will not be making pots for a couple of months now. my show season is about to crank too. whats a brother to do? well luckily for me it was my left -side so....i can still paint! and paint i will. i plan on taking my paintings to the next level. besides taking care of my daughter, dog and rooster/wait he got eaten by my sister's three legged jack russell! , so yeah i got nothing else to do but paint. i am going t bring paintings to my shows, approach some new galleries, and finish rebuilding my website and portfolio. i am taking this time being injured to uber-focus on two styles of painting which i will explain further ,later. here are three i am working on now, i plan on doing a painting a day, or at least every two days. bon-voy-age!

there is no tomorrow......







had a friend come over back on drugs trying sell me all kinds of shit. made my soul hurt, i gave him ten dollars for a rooster bell and old barn door, which i will do a painting of what drugs and alcohol made my soul feel like towards the ends. i am free now though. he is not. i gave him ten dollars to buy some more chains, and told him his light was out and that i loved him. he is a good guy when he is sober. i used to be fucked up on lots of shit so i hold no judgement only prayers now. maybe he will stop maybe he will die maybe he will just live as his own prisoner...i am free and every day is a gift every breath is gods. i should have been dead myself. but i am not. this is why i feel so alive. mostly the love grows. mostly i hope never to forget were i came from ..and mostly i need a new camera! off to pot, followed by roller derby with my daughter later. carpe diem.

the sky's flooding over and i must be gone...










here are some snapshots of the art-life that has been happening around here. life is a series of highs and lows...i had only two platters out of five survive this firing. one platter still had moisture, one grabbed the kiln shelf, and one i have no idea! on the up side i sold one of the intact platters the very same day to a lovely family in town., and the other platter came out really nice. the photo is crappy, doesn't do it justice at all. also my oil paintings are coming along real nice, and thankfully i don't have to worry about them cracking! all in all life is good, emma and i are hanging out this week she is on spring break. she wanted to go to cancun but i said no. just kidding , she is only three 3/4...we painted a picture of monster, a castle, princess and a pony today..i got a little to into the monster...
