Farmer Ted

I drew this dude while the preschoolers were napping today. I just wanted to remind myself how much I like to draw. And I did.

New Paintings, what?

Yes, I've done it! I've started painting again ---with a new vigor, too! I have an art show July 8th in Costa Mesa (Back Bay Center & the Offices at Back Bay 2675 Irvine Ave.) I hope to do more of these shows, since I feel like I have something to say in my art for the first time in a long time. I know things like these go in waves; sometimes my song writing is just nonexistent, but what matters is I share it when it IS there.

I'm going to show about 6 pieces, all for sale, all affordable, all just fun. I hope you enjoy. Here's a look at two of the pieces. They're 10" x 10".

Love to everyone, and may you create, too! It's the best!

On a quick note, I will perform at this little art show. I'm so excited to combine my music and art. I've also been hesitant to do so, afraid people might not separate me from other artists, or not take me seriously, but I've been getting a great response, and I've always been torn by the two arts, why shouldn't they be combined? They're both art after all? So here goes to a new outlook! Pursue, pursue!

P.S. Thanks, Mom, Dad, Aunts, Uncles, Oma, Opa, Sisters. I love you all, and you've been a catalyst to this new excitement for art and life. :)

A Festival to Remember...

What a day! A warm 75 degrees, fresh cut grass, and the smell of barbeque. Besides those bright and beautiful conditions, there were tables upon tables of art and crafts, and lots of great musicians. I had such a great time, that when I left, I was surprised six hours had flown by!

I sat at a table a drew portraits all day. Half of them were of people's dogs from a photo on their i-phones. I actually had a great time doing that, and a few of the kids I drew were just fun to talk to, besides being so much fun to draw. I'll be looking to do more events like this soon. Laguna, LA, Orange--- here I come!

Sweet Haley, posing with her portrait!

Jamie, and me. Enjoying the festival.

"T" the pup.

One of the book marks I made.
More bookmarks. I had so much fun, and I thought it was a sweet idea to give away a few hand-drawn items.

My table. Where the magic happens.
