Jean Dubuffet's Closerie Falbala outside of Paris

   I had the good fortune of being able to visit this place in the winter of 2006. There were a group of schoolchildren there that day and their guide was accentuating the mystery of that which lies in the central chamber.....a really cool place....

Colby Keller In My Studio

Over the course of the winter I've had the good fortune to meet a really cool guy who goes by the name of Colby Keller and his partner Karl Marks. My first encounter with Colby was at a musical life story improv piece so I know a lot of his backstory and he's pretty famous as a pornstar but I got to know him as an artschool graduate and young artist. He's smart and funny and a lot of fun to paint. He has a pretty cool blog called Big shoe diaries and the latest entry is about the work that we did can see that probably dont want to do this at work or around anyone who is uncomfortable with nudity.

Here Comes The Springtime

   I've gotta say, I'm really enjoying the springtime. It feels very different this year and it is in a lot of ways. Some new people have entered my life and some old friends have taken a leave of's all part of the change that makes up anyone's life.

   I'm doing my best to forgive and let go of resentments and to absolve my friends of whatever expectations I might have had of them, it's tough, but I like a challenge.

   I know that I do my best work in my studio when I pull the rug out from under my feet and constantly challenge's like that too
