Teeth, sketches, and android tomfoolery

Hell yes! I have completed a new painting (IN MY FREE TIME!) It's called "teeth," and you can track the process on my joint blog: Father Son Whaling Trip.

Teeth, gouache on paper, 28"x14"

Tchaikovsky's 170th Birthday

When I was a child, I started my first acrylic piece-- but I did more dancing than painting. Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" blasted on my boom box and it sounded how life is supposed to feel.
