Favorite mug

The handle broke about ten years ago, but that hasn't stopped it from
delivering the goods. "What, me worry?"

New time lapse / animation painting...errr what?

This new time lapse painting is more like a stop-motion animation because I removed myself from most of the frames. It's a quick one.

This is a response to Paul Miller's "That Guy". Which can be viewed below. The idea is that having a conversation over the paintings is more akin to the rambling thoughts someone might have when they are looking at this type of painting.

Here is Paul's video:

Robot Invasion

Currently a robot army has taken over our house as they mount up for a
galactic invasion. Not our galaxy though, so no worries.

100 Faces of War Experience - Artist Matt Mitchell

Matt Mitchell is a painter I met when our wives were pregnant in baby having classes. We caught up with him and his wife last weekend for the first time in years. They are both incredible, accomplished artists. Matt's current project is called "100 Faces of War Experience"

Here is a quote from his statement:

100 Faces is a growing collection of portraits and statements by Americans with war experience in Iraq or Afghanistan (OIF, OEF). Not all the people pictured are military personnel, other people who have gone from America with a different mission or a different role than the military are also pictured.

The 100 Faces project has grown in many ways over the past couple years. As more portraits have been painted , more personal histories described, more exhibitions and events have been held the nature of this project has expanded. What began as a vision by one artist has branched out to become a project about history.

You can see the portraits at the website by following this link.

Current painting

This is what I'm working on at the moment.
See my latest painting created as a time lapse video at

All the Time Lapse Painting goodness.

For the past 7 months I've been recording my painting process using time lapse photography and posting the results all of the YouTubes... the work is for the most part abstract, although as of late I've been working in a more literal abstract style. Random doodles, shapes, creatures whatever you want to see, grow from a point on the canvas. For now there is no theme behind anyone painting. They go where ever my mind goes. There are definite "things" to be found among the random objects/organisms, like tentacles and pipes, heart like shapes that morph into planetiod shapes, things like that. So here's to the first blog post and the first batch of videos.
