The Stars Conspire On Halloween

While coming up with ideas for the February limited Halloween postcard, I realized in 10 years I had not yet done a "Classic" witch flying on a broom postcard yet. I played around a bit & came up with this one. The original painting is far more aqua toned in the sky, but my scanner just could not pick it up. Here is an image of the Painting & the finished card front.

I blew up my website.

In the process of trying to restore all my broken links to the website I had to download the whole thing to my computer. This blew my bandwidth & it is temporarily unavailable. Hopefully it will be back up soon!

Sprawling Sculpture

This is a recent sculpture I did as a commission for a friend & collector in Canada. I was never able to get a good shot of this beast, it is a sprawling, spindly piece going off at odd angles and turns.I can't remember for sure now that I have mailed it, nut I believe it was about 18" Head to tail & 14" foot to head. Here we go, a series of terrible photos of one of my favorite sculptures. :-)

Good Times and Bad

My dear friend John Ward, owner of National Art & Hobby here in New Orleans tragically & suddenly passed away last weekend. I am trying to reconcile this and the huge hole his loss leaves in the city in general and our lives on a more personal level. A more giving, positive and selfless man I have never met.

John is pictured here standing next to me at the opening of my show at the Big Top Gallery last October.

I miss you, and hope all is at peace for you.

Crazy two weeks

The beginning of Mardi Gras, the Saints winning the 2 big games of the year and the resulting parade of nearly 1,000,000 people Last night, pshwew! Great time to be in New Orleans. Except of course for the temperatures lately. :-) I really shouldn't complain about lows in the 30's considering the snow pounding many of my friends are suffering through. Spring is coming, keep your eyes on the prize!

My production has been cut down dramatically for all of the above as well as a commercial project I am working on that has a tight deadline. It's pretty exciting to me & I can't wait to be able to share the news.

Today I noticed someone is selling one of my older postcard paintings on ebay. It was always one of my favorites, and am half tempted to buy it back! I think the price is about $25 less than I sold it for originally. It will be fun to see if it sells.

edit: It sold, I should have gone for it! :-(
