July 1, 2018 INSTALLATION DAY OF MY FIRST SOLO ART SHOW!

Spent the morning putting up paintings for my first solo art exhibit and it couldn’t have been better! The Southwest Regional Library in Pembroke Pines has a beautiful exhibit area, and Event and Exhibition Coordinator Nicole Kinney was very helpful.

It took about 2 hours to get the artwork up and laid out exactly right. The hardest part was loading up the car with all the paintings in this Florida humidity.

Thanks so much to the Broward Art Guild, and specifically Claudia Castillo, for this amazing opportunity.

I made a little time lapse video to share with you how the process went. Thanks again to all of you for supporting me in my endeavors!

AND WE HAVE A WINNER!

CONGRATULATIONS BEVERLY JOHNSON! Beverly, your print will be on its way very shortly!

I really enjoyed hosting this contest, and I hope you enjoyed participating in it. Your support is truly appreciated, and I’m thrilled to bring you along on this journey with me.

The purpose of this blog is to give you some sneak peeks into my artistic process as it unfolds in the studio. I’ll occasionally send you some fun, behind-the-scenes stuff about paintings I’m currently working on. Don’t worry, I promise not to bombard you with emails.

I’m actually working on a new piece now! I’ve been taking photos of the work-in-progress. Perhaps I’ll assemble them into a short video and post it here soon.

Have a great weekend! And Happy Father’s Day to the dads.

The Seeing Eye Gods

Brett Gurewitz of punk band Bad Religion and his alleged drug dealer (no, I’m not gonna name him) put out an album of psychedelic music in 1985 under the name The Seeing Eye Gods. I heard two of the songs (“Psychedelic Suzy” and “Strawberry Girl”) on a college radio station and immediately loved them.

There are only five songs on the album – the same five on both sides. The album itself is a picture disc with a red and green paisley design on it, and came in a plastic pouch. The only other thing in the pouch was the “jacket,” which was a lightweight piece of cardboard, printed – in almost-unreadable magenta and cyan – on one side only with the liner notes and graphics. You can see it in the video (link below), along with various views of the picture disc.

I spent fifteen years trying to track down a copy of this album! I finally found one online – some guy in Iowa or somewhere had it in his indie record shop. Also online, I discovered why it was so hard to find: apparently only a thousand copies of it were made. I’m happy I was able to find one.

“Roxanne”

No, not the song by The Police. This one’s a mostly overlooked bit of psychedelia by three brothers from Texas who called themselves The Chaparral Trio. I’ve found very little info about them online.

It’s a great song. I only wish there was a stereo version — this song deserves it.

You can find it on this compilation CD:
A Deadly Dose of Wylde Psych
