A Tall Tree Painting

The wading pool at the park down the street has opened so we spent the afternoon there — every day until fall it’s open, and not only is the pool open but there are free city-sponsored kid’s activities as well. I assume that’s the case at every little municipal park across the city, which is pretty cool.

I finished off The Parable of the Blind Leading the Blind painting with some really minor touches. I’ve posted it to my art gallery along with two older paintings, Amsterdam (2001) and Boatel 6 (2003), as I finally get around to taking pictures of some of my early work. I have two new pieces on the go as well that hopefully I can finish before moving out… one of this week’s mission’s is finding a new place.

Oh, and in the next few days I’ll be upgrading the server this and my other blogs are hosted on, so they should be more consistently responsive…

    Central park is full of free activities for the kids. I love it. Story time at the Hans Christian Anderson Statue is especially fun. Nice to see you and your family are well. I love the “You’re Both Still Reptiles” painting.

    No, I don’t stretch my own canvasses… I used to, but I don’t these days. It seems to generally be cheaper to buy them pre-stretched.

    That said, I usually prefer painting on wood.

  4. Less of an arty question but still. What kind of servers are you moving to?

    Nothing exciting, just something with private/guaranteed resources rather than a shared server. It’s all done now.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
