Hot Pink – the Latest.

Pretty caught up in art-show excitement these days. So much so that I almost forgot about the blog.

But many amazing things are happening. Paintings are already selling, buttons have arrived, a new shirt is almost ready, sketches are being posed for, greeting cards are available, and the Hot Pink Peeler Mix playlist is nearly finished. All sorts of craziness, and definitely of the good variety.

This art-show business does actually get easier. For a long time I didn’t think that would ever happen.

Mind you, I’ve got a team behind me now, and their support and enthusiasm are pretty infectious (and it’s not just my show this time around). In fact, we’re meeting on the weekend to talk over some hush-hush, ultra-top-secret business. Just wait till you see the results. Oh, man…

Anyway, people are stepping up to bat and generally being excellent human beings. I could rave about that for hours, or about how beautiful women are keeping me informed as to what shoes and underwear (pink and/or black, obviously) they’ve bought for the show. But instead I’ll just treat you to another slideshow:

Nine days to the big show. Anybody else as pumped for this as I am?


Today the UPS guy dropped off an amazing present:

You’ve heard me rave about the Liquid Mirror before, so I won’t give you that spiel again (let’s just say that a bottle this big is a pretty extravagant gift). But the Sludge is one of the smarter products I’ve heard of – basically it’s comprised of the leftover gunk from the normal paint-making process. Leftover gunk (both solid and liquid waste) that would otherwise have to be disposed of somehow. You can read more about it here , but it’s a pretty impressive and ecologically-friendly product.

Thanks, Rheni. I’ll try to use it wisely.


I’ve probably mentioned this before, but my good friends in Mojave (check out their music; it’s pretty great) are putting on an art-and-music show at the Tipper in a couple weeks, and yours truly will have three pieces in it.

Here’s a quick teaser:

Just a small detail from one of the paintings; they’re all tied together thematically. So far the best part of this has been giving Tri-Art’s new Liquid Mirror paint a test-drive. The stuff’s amazing.

I’ll keep you posted on how well the show goes.
