Now listen up all you people. I've decided I need to divest myself of this overabundance of unsellable paintings. Perhaps you'd like one at vastly reduced prices. Pennies on the dollar. Sure, why not? We'll be scraping the bottom of the barbell here, so do stay tuned. If anyone's listening that is...

​So welcome to the….


Things are changing and yet staying fairly similar, or so it seems to me. Here is the gateway to where all the paintings in the Big Painting Giveaway will be.  click for the damn paintings.

Something New

Animal Nature newish Henry Crucifixion

It was once implied here in this very space that there was nothing new in the world of Art!!!

(And that, therefore, we would have to make what was old new again. Seems like hokum to me.)

Is too much of a good thing a bad thing or just too much of it? How long can you beat a dead horse? How long can you silently scream before you make yourself hoarse? If a conversation is a two-way street, shouldn't you occasionally have the impression that the other party is listening to you? Are there consequences to inhabiting the rotting corpse of someone else's poisonous dream?
Perhaps. Perhaps not. Anyway here are eight years of wine labels I did at  Kings Hill Cellars, 


There are also, of course, beer paintings to consider. "It takes a lot of beer to make good wine" goes the adage, and we struggle to live up to and embody the spirit of the spirit, so to speak. So dig it if you can.... There is still one more Beer Painting to go for Woodyatt Station. Or is it two? Well anyhow, dig it while you can.

Here is the Six Daemon Spiced Ale painting:

Tumultuous Uproar Jack of the Green

And now an aging feature incorporating all the excitement and fantastical high-handedness you've come to expect...

the Drawing(s) of the Month! (see them all!)

Maybe there's some thing new here...





I swear I have been drawing and I'll try & put some things up to view someday...

Below are pages from a book of drawings I put together. I have one (1) left, but I should probably send it to my ex-wife, to whom many of these "drawings" were at the time dedicated. $40. You will regret it for the rest of your life if you do not buy one... this is your last chance.

You have missed the ill-fated 2 day exhibition (Mar 11-13) at the "Slice of Life" in Sebastopol.

Apparently it is a damn thin slice of life at this vegan eatery. This hanging, though expected to malinger for a couple months, was cut short due to the adverse reaction of the clientele and the owner of the restauraunt. We apologize for any inconvenience caused... (more)

Drop me a line & tell me all about it. Won't you?
Send me a word...
