One of my favorite TV series is due to return in about a month, True Blood. Adapted from the best selling series of novels by Charlaine Harris this series has every fantasy creature you could ask for from Vampires to Fairies and all done with a touch of humor. Well worth checking out.
The poster is minimalist and somewhat familiar with a close up of a part of a woman’s face. The thing that is striking about it is the blood red tear streaming from her eye.

L.A.’s Capital Cities new electro-pop recording of Kangaroo Court is a must hear. The recording is extremely catchy and with a fantastic combination of rhythms. You’ll love it! It’s available for free download from SoundCloud.
I created the fighting cock painting as a result of recognizing forms when I sat down to do an abstract. My first intent was a very abstracted work but I soon saw the shapes forming while I was painting and it resulted in this abstracted painting of two birds fighting.
It is acrylic on canvas.
This painting is 24″ x 30″ (61cm x 76cm) and is available for sale. The colors included in the painting are Cadmium Yellow, Pyrrole Red, Green Gold, Iridescent Pearl, Interference Blue.
I have always liked the form of the Italian Poplar tree. The tree is a cross between the Black Poplar of the old world and the Cottonwood tree of eastern North America.
The similarity of the poplar tree to this painting was by accident. I was simply listening to my heart and working by instinct in its creation. The realization of the similarity of form came only after a friend who was quilting with my partner pointed it out. I think I must have been working at some instinctual, subconscious level and repeating a form that I had seen in nature.
The painting is 30″ x 24″ ( 76cm x 61cm ) and was completed this past week using acrylic paint and sand for texture. The colors included in the painting are: Lime Yellow, Indian Yellow, Pyrrole Red, Gold, Titanium White, and Umber.
“Italian Tree Abstract” is available for sale as well as gallery display.
