Wow. Three years since my last post. Lots of stuff on Facebook, but here, not so much. I'll start with the most recent and work backwards from there.

The painting above is in my show titled 45° 31' 25" N / 122° 40' 30" W (More or Less) which runs through the month of February. Details here

Mount Hood from Salmon Creek

This is about five minutes from my house.
Kids' Napkin Art

I take requests from my kids and draw on the napkins that go in their lunches. The napkins fall into two distinct categories: My son likes guitars, superheroes and video games. My daughter loves puppies, princesses and other girlie things, but her latest obsession is My Meebas-little plush figures that for some reason fall under the Barbie umbrella.

I contested a ticket in traffic court this morning, and this is the judge that dismissed it. Was it my soaring rhetoric? My masterful oration? Actually, the traffic cop failed to show, but a dismissal is a dismissal.

Woke up to roughly 3 inches of snow today, which meant that life as we know it in the Pacific Northwest ground to a halt. What is normally a 45 minute commute blossomed to 2 1/2 hours, so I had plenty of time to actually finish a drawing. People who know that I came from Minnesota assume that I have nothing but scorn for the way people here drive in snow. I do, of course, but a) I don't tell them that, and b)Minnesota is basically a flat, featureless parking lot. I'd like to see them try to drive out here.

By the time I got to the spot where the traffic is at a standstill long enough for me to finish the drawing,(generally between the Delta Park and Janzen Beach exits on I-5, just south of the Washington state line)it was completely dark. It's a little more interesting doing this in the dark and in the rain. I'm not sure what a self-portrait of me going through the windshield would look like, but by God, I smell a grant in there somewhere.
