If you are looking for uber-cool things for your super cool pad then the Shadow Art Fair in Ypsilanti is the best place to find it. It is one of the best shows I've ever been a part of for sure. The people and the art and craftwork are of the utmost quality and hipness for sure.This is my entry for the poster design contest for the upcoming show. I'm crossing my tentacles with a hope to win and be a part of their show again later this year. Click on the image for a closer look.

Ah yes, the lovely Ms. Winehouse, what else could I say that hasn't been said already. She sure can sing though, when she's not busy with the after hours activities. I painted this about a year ago, and its pretty tiny, 8" x 10" I think. Rock On Goldust woman, take your silver spoon and dig your grave.
Well you know what they say, "When in Rome, Paint a Gnome" I think thats how that saying goes...hmm, maybe not. ANYWAY, yeah garden gnomes, natures little helpers are some cool cats for sure. The legend comes from the Nordic folk, and they swear by 'em, and who am I to question how nature takes care of itself. I just wanted to capture them in their natural beauty, so I grabbed my brushes, layed down in the grass and waited for something to happen, and this is what I found. Funny litttle people, wicked sense of humor, but their language matches their suits, very blue....... Expect more gnome paintings soon, they're having another party this weekend, so I think I'll sit down and have a very small drink with them. CHEERS!
