Lately some of my latest favorite songs:

Townes Van Zandt - Rake
Steve Earle - Guitar Town
Emmylou Harris - Tulsa Queen
Elliot Smith - Either/Or
Marty Robbins - The Masters Call

I haven't had a lot of time to watch television lately, but when I do get a chance I enjoy watching "How I Met Your Mother" and "Storage Wars".

Lately I've been busy with school and studying for Octobers LSAT.

I really enjoy living in the Pacific Northwest. I love the Portland area, it is full of life, culture, and art. Not just lately, but for a while.

The Vacuum Museum

If you're in the need for checking out some super old vacuums, look no further than Stark's Vacuum Museum. They are located off of Grand Ave in SE Portland. Serious stuff folks. They have a two-man pump vacuum.

I occasionally think to myself excellent possibilities for musicians to cover other songs. I've always thought that "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" would be a great one for Tom Waits. I've also wanted to hear him sing the "Star Spangled Banner". But one particular wish of mine is Tom Waits covering an albums worth of Sesame Street songs. The Cookie Monster song "C is for Cookie" is a no-brainer, but what about "I Love Trash" from Oscar the Grouch or "Elmo's Song" by Elmo. He sorta did a somewhat cover with "People in the Neighborhood" on one of his earlier albums. It's something to think about, Mr. Waits.

Lincoln Town

Lately i've been experimenting with finishes. This is one of the better ones i've done with the old crackled look.

This is an upcycled/recycled scrap board in which I mix my acrylics on to paint other pictures. My beautiful wife says it looks like gum.

Title: Lincoln riding a dinosaur through fields of poppy. (practicing for Lincoln riding a Llama)

new paintings.

couple new one's are up on my Etsy shop for now. I might could take them to a gallery down in SE PDX. We shalteth see-eth. In the works I have a portrait of a sea-faring man by the name of Paddy McGann, and another one started with a new style of paint, hoopty digidoopty. I've been thinking about oils, but the more I think about oils, the more it makes me realize I need to put some in my car before the engine locks up. It should be spelled oyl or oyel. Does the word have Hebrew roots? I love green beans too, thanks babe.
