Roberto Matta

was driving around town today and stopped by a garage sale.  came across a surprise book on one of my favorite artist's ever, Roberto Matta.  I was a little stunned because I've never seen a book of his work before in person.  I know there are some comprehensive ones online for a couple hundred I offered two bucks for this one and took it.  Score.  It's an old printing and in spanish and there's only a few pictures of his paintings, mostly of him in studios political things.  I love the cover!

Sunday in th studio 4.3.11

Being the scavenger I am, I found this pastel portrait lonely and discarded in a pile of trash and have proceeded to incorporate my personal interpretation...a lions mane fit for the sun.

Sphinx Fox sighting

My collaborative project with Joy Payton is working on some material in preparation for a couple shows later this year.  Hooray for goals.

Here's some small sculptey figurines that are patiently waiting to receive paint food, on top of some character drawings...also hungry.

In the studio

Like a mound, of unfettered voyages, seeking flight, and fancy.

Inspiration can come from anywhere, anytime, take this cluster of postcards; ripe randomness ready and willing, like a loving brotherly photo of Arnold and Willis from Diff'rent Strokes or a vacationing couple in Hawaii playing golf, taken minutes before a volcano off shore violently erupts destroying nearby towns, palms, and golf courses.  Luckily the couple survives the eruption, only to die in the plane crash home. Tragedy, you might think?  What if I told you their little fun in the sun vacation was but part of a scheming elaborate plan unfolding successfully. A leave-the-country-while-things-cooled-down-for-the-robbery-and-murder-of-three-long-time-business-partners-in-prestigious-financial-firm-plan.
Much of inspiration, I find, is about leaving the sails open and susceptible to the currents of a moment.  Allowing whatever you're sensing to come in and let your imagination coast away.

Point of danger. Sharks patrol these waters. Ready a life boat.

Things that don't normally happen #1

Marta was on her way to work, talking to her friend on the phone when from behind a tall building she catches eye of a enormous rabbit.

seeing sexy swirls again

Made this postcard ditty several years ago but came upon it recently while chancing through some files.  Still attracted to swirly lines I am.

Games Without Frontiers

in love with Photoshop's smudge tool lately


In this poor birdman's world he thinks he needs a three-faced, quadrupedal creature for transport because every other bird man/woman does.  Guess it never occurred to him that if he stands up he could walk with his own two feet...belief's can be hindering.

you have a stove top espresso maker, get crazy, put coffee grounds in that little storage house instead of espresso grounds, add a spoon of brown sugar, heat up.  pour over some milk and **^**! if that isn't some tasty morning juice.
recommended accompaniment: cinnamon crumb cake and el guincho!

Buenos dias mundo!
