A sad sort of sentimentality has wafted through the ceiling and settled upon my brow. I think it’s time to draw some more.
Satruday was spent painting, hanging out with my fellow and his friend, surprising a friend on his birthday and checking out great local music!

I am beyond thrilled to announce that my dear, devoted Oracle has found a new home! In tribute, here are some of my thoughts for her:
This dear woman has a vision, clear as a bright summer day. It is so clear it sears her mind and trains her thoughts toward it, even those twisted reflections that surface in dreams. She does not know if she will achieve her goal but that does not deter her from tirelessly pursuing it.
Society turns down the corners of its mouth with no gentile subtlety but instead with a raging and vulgar shout: “Let lie where they are born these errant thoughts that cause dissatisfaction with complacency!”
Her peers fall by the wayside as she digs deeper into her vision. Slowly, out of the grain, once bleached into a bland white by the scouring of the cloned mentality of the pack she once called home, emerge like-minded souls. A tender hand and open mind polish and smooth the splinters, nourish and value the striations ingrained in the wood. Suddenly one ring becomes a beauty under the mahogany tone of love, another is a story of a lost limb under the fire of cherry, a third still becomes a quiet river of millennia under the diligent hand applying a delicate blonde stain.
As she seeks her calling others witness and find within themselves a similar courage. Their pack is small and nebulous: their commonality is their gift of vision.
The gracious people of WAAS Gallery are putting on the AF Pop Up Show with several of their resident artists as well as some select few from the community. I am lucky to be one of them! I will have two of my larger pieces, Demeter and Oracle, in this show!
This spring is fulfilling all promises of being full of wonderful storms, sprouts, friends and great goings-on! I’ll be displaying some art, possibly live painting, at this album release party. Needless to say, April 12 will be a wonderfully fulfilling day!
This drawing will become a post card. See the rest of my drawings from this session over on my Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/soulog/
I have a few pieces hanging at a pop up show over in Fort Worth today. If you’re in that part of town stop by to see my work, as well as the work of other great, local talents.
