oh yeah, Joe? you had a few predictions and resolutions, did you? well i had a few myself, and they are these:
to continue to try and to manage more and more responsibilities at work and at home. this includes the art thing. balance is key and something i’m trying to achieve without it overwhelming/frustrating me. what can i say? i can be lazy.
to be a better counselor at the group home that i work for.
to not worry so much and to enjoy things more.
and finally, to create more live paintings this year than i ever have prior. so, with that in mind, Friday night was a nice little kick off to the year at Frankfest. check out my blog for specifics if you’re interested…here’s the painting in the meantime, lovelies.
there you have it folks. progenitor and author of the sipder flies himself, mr. crazyredbeard, will be painting for the Everyone Orchestra at the 10,000 Lakes Festival this summer. i post this not to toot my own horn mind ye. i’m a humble man.
i post this to FREAK THE EFF OUT! i’m honored that EO would even think to have me back. i was lucky enough to paint for them for three nights this past Fall, 10/06-10/08/06 and was able to sell two out of the three paintings i created. the music was amazing, the musicians top notch and the experience one to remember. i’m certainly pleased to say the least that they think enough of my work to want to have me back. 🙂 God is good.
here are the three that came about from the run this Fall…
Recher Theatre, 10/06/06 Towson, MD
The State Theater, 10/07/06 Falls Church, VA
House of Blues, 10/08/06 Atlantic City, NJ
word!! this is definitely the biggest event i’ve ever painted and i’m so thankful for the opportunity…hope to see you all at the Lakes!!
Fishman signing the back of my painting @ The State Theater, Falls Church, VA
The State Theater 10/07/06
This painting measures 24″x36″ and was painted live during Particle on 11/14/06 at Starr Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia. It’s signed by the members of the band on the back, which I think is spiffy-neato. I haven’t decided on whether or not I’ll sell it. Prints, maybe?
