Cotton Candy

A lot of good things happened today – some of these will be revealed later – so I felt like making a big abstract painting and using lots of pink! I happen to love pink, and this painting looks like cotton candy! All kinds of good things happened today. Two people who are very specialContinue reading “Cotton Candy”

Feast for the Dead

Today my aunts had a special feast to mark six weeks since grandma’s passing. Consisting of many elaborate rituals mainly aimed at giving food and a list of very specific items to the poor, this six-week celebration is a huge production. I helped my old lizard organize some of the elements of this tradition sixContinue reading “Feast for the Dead”

Letters from Aimée

Today the Louisiana commission found its way to the lovely young woman it belongs to, and I was left thinking about my Kickstarter project for The Glory Days of Aimée Bonnard.

Something else exciting: The website for the 2020 Art Launch Gala is live! The gala will be a virtual one this year, soContinue reading “Study of Blue”

Reflection of a Dog

There’s a picture I took during a sunset walk on the Island in which a black and white dog casts a really cool reflection in the wet sand. Sometimes when the whole world seems out of whack it’s good to focus on things like that. Today I painted that dog, and that was fun andContinue reading “Reflection of a Dog”
