The Met

how i love it so..
siobhan and i went to see the morandi show. this is the 3rd time i've had the opportunity to see his peaceful little still-lifes - i really love them so much:

everytime i go to the met i discover something new. like this awesome balthus painting i never knew was there:

and i finally made it to the rooftop for the first time ever, (on what happened to be the last day of the koons exhibit):



i finally finish the painting siobhan commissioned me to do for her friend gayle's wedding present. these are gayle's babies.


muscle man

this weekend i finally went to grab a few last things that were left at the old studio, including all of my écorché sculptures from school. sadly, i had to say goodbye to this fellow, b/c there's just nowhere to put all of them, and i have another one just like him but more developed. peter, my friend at the old studio adopted him. anyway here he is, and some day i'll post pics of the ones i took with me.
..looking at them really makes me want to sculpt again.


fun with camerabag

my latest iphone webapp: camerabag. it's basically fun filters that you can apply to any pics you take with your iphone, or even photos you already have. here is a shot from the canko loft opening (the big art exhibit in conjunction with the JC studio tour):

and here's infrared papi lickin his chops:

and, mysterious man in our living room wearing my favorite hat:

p.s. i found out that the little woodblock i painted went for $250 at the auction in wellfleet - very exciting!!


painting for woodfleet project

this is a little painting i did for a charity auction that my friend katie organizes every year in cape cod during oysterfest. she gives out 5 1/2" inch long pieces of 2 x 6 lumber to anyone who'd like to participate, to work them in any creative way they please. in the spirit of cape cod i decided to stick with a watery theme and use another pic from our trip to newport rhode island this last summer.



papi was also a big hit on the tour. so here he is - some sketches in my sketchbook from a couple years ago.


Artists Studio Tour weekend

this weekend was the Jersey City open studio tour. it was a lot of fun and a great success! we met lots of enthusiastic art lovers from both sides of the river, as well as some of our really cool neighbors in JC, and i got great feedback and interest in my work. here are some pics of the little studio all set up. :)
