Upcoming Show Postcard

May 31, 2010


Portland Art Show

May 24, 2010

I’ll be participating in a group art show on the first Thursday of June at Lizard Lounge in Portland, Oregon. This is a benefit for the Portland chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. I anticipate good beer, good times, and hopefully some good art sales. 50% of all art sales for the benefit goes to the Surfrider Foundation. So come out and show your support of art and the environment.

Lando San Miguel

May 12, 2010

Have you ever casually bitch-slapped a deadly serpent flying through the air to attack you? Didn’t think so. Can you shoot lasers from your elbows? You liar, no you can’t! Then give respect where respect is due. Lando is the man. You think he’s not capable of all this and more? Then watch this video clip from Everything is Terrible and start believing.

Kayak Adventure

May 10, 2010

Over the weekend the ocean was having one of those extremely rare no wind and no waves days. My wife and I decided to take advantage of it and took off on a little kayak adventure. We saw views of the coast that I’ve never seen before. I grew up exploring this area from land, and never knew there were so many sea caves below my feet.

The picture and video are poor quality due to the cheap camera I was using. Yes, that is my nose in the video. I had to improvise on how I would hold my camera and paddle at the same time. I was able to clench part of the camera with my teeth.

Kinetic Rhythm

May 6, 2010

I was listening to a radio program yesterday. The person being interviewed has a writing group for Alzheimer’s patients. There was one lady who was in the later stages of the disease and couldn’t hardly put sentences together anymore. The person being interviewed thought that the group wasn’t useful to her anymore. One day he was off to the coast for the weekend. He thought he’d see what she thought of the beach, because it was something they used to talk about together. So he asks her, “What do you love about the beach?” She said, “There’s some kind of music that lives there”.

Here’s a few shots I’ve taken this year for painting inspiration. I make no claim to being a good photographer. Thankfully, my subject matter is very photogenic.

A Little Monday Morning Pick Me Up

May 3, 2010

It’s Monday, and it’s wet and cold outside. A little Johnny Cash seems to be a good way to start my week off right.
