This is what I was working on tonight. I'm trying to figure out if it would make a good or creepy postcard for Etsy. Maybe it would make a good and creepy postcard.

Self-Portrait #275

Painting in my spot. My new studio room still needs some love and
attention but my struggling art is needing more these days. I've been
wanting to get more postcards made of my paintings but the big ones
are too hard to photograph and get the colors and details that make
for a great postcard and I hate most of my small paintings. I've been
trying to make some new ones but I'm feeling a little rusty with the
paint brush.

Self-Portrait #274

Tonight I decided that I want to spend my time loving more then
hating. I think I know a lot of people that hate people more then
they love.

Winter has killed my ambition.

I had such hope for today but it was mostly spent doing this. Success!

Self-Portrait #264

It only took me 21/2 weeks to come up with this disguise.

During my trip to NYC a few weeks ago I was eating in a restaurant with friends when one of them stopped mid-sentence to point out this painting.

Oh, it's just a painting of...wait...looking closer....

...yeah that's right, there are horses "doing it" in the background. I'm hoping all of my blog readers are over 18 years of age and not offended by horse porn.

News Alert: I really am an idiot.

I was convinced that I was on self-portrait #299 and then transitioned to 300....but I was wrong. Thanks Kim. I really have lost my mind. I'm laughing so hard right now. I almost wet my pants.

Surfing the interweb. Tired. Tired of black eye. Tired of cold and
it's only just begun. UGH!

Self-Portrait #260

I accidentally gave myself two black eyes in this portrait. I went stupid while drawing. I can't believe this is #300. I didn't really think that I would make it this far. On one hand I'm really tired of taking pictures of myself and on the other hand I realize that I'll probably have some strange withdrawal from this project. I do wish that I had done more drawings so maybe for the next 65 I'll try to focus on that. I'm sort of having a self loathing phase with my art. I just don't feel like I'm as good as I used to be or as good as I could be but I guess I'm the only person who can do something about that. I think the winter blues are hitting me today. I really don't like the cold some days. I think this may be a long winter.

UPDATE: 300 does not follow 259. WOW. I actually have 100+ portraits left. UGH!

Self-Portrait #258

I do very important things at work in meetings. My friend Erin was
trying to find gum in her handbag with no luck but she did find 6 cars
and 1 helicopter. Sweet.

Self-Portrait #257

This picture didn't post last night. The black eye is almost gone.

Self-Portrait #255

I actually feel hopeful. I can't believe this is really happening.
There really is hope. I've been having a hard time these days and it
feels so great to smile. This election means so much to so many
people; people who aren't even here yet. Many generations from now
will wonder how we ever elected George W. and why we elected 43 white
guys before him. The face of America is changing or at least that
face is finally being represented.

I'm SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!

I love cool parents and cool kids. Hopefully the election turns out this way.

Self-Portrait #253

This has been one long week. I'm hoping that at this time next week
there will be no trace of this on my face. My jaw and my sense of
security is an entirely different story. I'm promising to make some
art this week. I've been really distracted these days but I've got a
lot of ideas so I'm hoping by making this promise here I will keep to

Still rocking the black eye.
