Got back this weekend from a cool 3 days in Monterey to 105 degree heat in Sacramento. Paint dries really fast! that's all I can say. The studio was so hot and steamy I might as well be doing Bikram Yoga. The big painting is coming along, but at a snails pace. I've been over thinking a lot for no reason other than not wanting to screw it up! After this show I'll work on that one! ok...here's where I'm at!
A little macho man self image, Rapunzel hair fetish and what not! Go figure and if you do, please let me know!

The Smoking Monkey Series is a good filler for time when I'm not working on my paintings. It's somewhat mindless and somewhat therapeutic. I'm running out of paint can lids so I might have to go dumpster diving tomorrow behind some paint stores. My goal is 50-100 by my show in Oct. Not sure if I'll make it, but it's the goal.
These are the ones I have so far hanging in the bathroom. Heather is out of town so I don't know how she'll respond to the larger grouping, ha! Oh well!
Sigmar Polke passed away on June 10, 2010. He was one of the many artists whose work I was drawn to and influenced by.
