Chance a gander...





From a my recent bicycle trip with brother Keith, Down the southern Oregon Coast, and then inland, over to Mt. Shasta.
And forgotten pages from the moleskin.

THIRTY ONE DAYS OF NEWS BREAKS




The first day, I installed sketches of on-line news breaks, from world news to personal news, however, It proved a bit too labor intensive to keep up.

Changes For The Better

The summer is in full swing, and It's good to be back, and in action. I will no longer have paintings viewable at the Attic Gallery in the Pearl district of NW Portland. The gallery air had grown stale, and my paintings pleaded with me to see the light of day. Plus, upon my return, I found the gallery in a transition phase of down sizing, and re-opening under a different name. It is a good time to move on, with plans to participate in several group shows this summer.

If you have ever been interested in a particular work of mine, but could not afford it's gallery price, contact me for a new reduced price! Otherwise, I will have an updated website within the next week with an online store where paintings can be purchased with a credit card.

Yesterday, I met some friends for the first of a series of group "plein air" painting sessions, at the Worksound Gallery in SE Portland. We will be meeting every monday for the next month, culminating in a group show of our work. The show was organised by Cyrus W. Smith, who's website can be visited via the link to the right. My first two paintings are presented below.

Fellow Painter, Kevin


On Tuesday, July 1st, I will paint my first of thirty one paintings for a group exhibition titled appropriately Thirty-One. Thirty other artists will be held to the same, intense schedule. The month of painting culminates with an exhibition on August 1st at Om Tradition Arts (14 NE 10th Ave. at east Burnside) from 3 to 10pm. I will be posting images of my paintings, as they are completed, here on my blog.

Thom And A New America

Something about how you don't realize how a trip will change you until after you have returned.
Thomas Jefferson speaking through the television last night.
John Adams. A movie and taking care of a cat.
We need to use quotes, but gotta be sure of them.
Wouldn't know if it was he or hollywood.

When you wonder where the last bit of your life has gone, you click through the jpgs on your computer, and get something of an idea.

From Santiago To The Caribe

Sold a motorcycle in Santiago, Chile two weeks ago.

It took some time.

Just kicked it in an empty hostel with my friend Sara.


And went daydreaming through the Sea of Ciudad Santiago.
With the money from the sale, I bought an airplane ticket to Bogota, Colombia.

I was looking for a proper holiday before returning to the States.
In Bogota, I met some excelent people. During the nights we drank an awful lot of beer.



And in the mornings we pondered about our deviant ways over a cup of coffee, before drinking beer again.

And there was aguardiente.

But now Im on the Caribean, and havnt time for drawing. Only scuba diving, sweating, and eating fish. One more week, and then home.

P.S. I lost a few journels with email addresses of friends met from Bareloche up to Santiago. Pass on a message to me through this blog, or be a friend on facebook, or myspace!
all the best,
willy
