Almond Croissant and Cherry Turnover. Yum!

One hour watercolor study. Next week we are going to go on Friday because La Magie stays open later!

Creampuff Take 2

Well......Talitha and I agreed that each of our pieces look like an alien brain wearing a cowboy hat. In fact the cream puff itself looked like one too. It was delicious though.

Art night at La Magie

Definitely rusty. And we chose too damn many things to draw (though they were soooo delicious to eat afterwards). And next time I need to remember a pencil sharpener.

Hiatus Hopefully Over!

Wow it's been forever since I posted anything to here. It's not like I haven't been busy...oh I have.

Anyway Art Night is starting up again, here in the old Bendoid. A very cool bakery opened up in the same building as my studio, and I have a new co-artist in here who suggested we check out the bakery for our Art Nights. Buy a pastry and coffee, draw said pastry and coffee...I can't wait. We start tomorrow night and I can post the results here. I'm very thrilled, as I have missed doing art nights. Gonna be rusty, no doubt.

Robert and Tami (and Luna and Goober)

This was a commissioned cartoon from my buds, these two and their kitties. The finished size was only 4 by 4 inches and it goes on the Wall of Art I expect---they have a whole wall devoted to drawings, sketches and caricatures various friends have done of them over the years. Fun!

June's Show at Lowes Real Estate Office

Hey there,

I can't upload any pics cos my computer's in the shop. Virus. Thanks, craigslist fake guy who is "looking for an illustrator", hope karma hits you sooner rather than later and sorry I can't be there to watch.

Ok now that that's out of my system...The show on Friday night was a lot of fun. Weather was wonderful and the streets were packed with wine, uh I mean art lovers. Our place was full until the wine ran out later in the evening, then it was really amazing how fast it cleared out!
But it was super fun to watch people looking at the paintings, and overhear their comments about how they recognized this or that place or reliving memories of being there. Probably my favorite overheard comment of the evening, regarding "Hiway House Restaurant" was: "Oh look honey! Remember this place and the stinky velvet cushions?"

I also learned where I saw Ted's Garage (north of Redmond) but it has since been torn down, which is why I couldn't find it again. Oh well, preserved for posterity.

And Madras Hotel is still in operation. I really want to go inside now.

Somebody from down here even recognized the Mobil gas station, even though it's way the heck up and quite a ways north of Seattle.

Anyway it really was great fun. I didn't sell a piece. A number of people got my contact info though, so we'll see.

The show will be up for all of June.
