It’s a long story, but this month I’ll be moving to the next door apartment. This is weird and also convenient. So now I’ve got six months of rental time to find a permanent condo or something, hopefully.
Things noticed so far during the move
- Too many goddamned paintings
- The paint-catcher canvas what saved me from many rental fees and fines
Here is where I test an image upload.
Here are two fairly recent exhibition photos:
Open Wall at The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art

Bordo Bello Skateboard Art Fundraiser
December 11, 2009
A collection of small acrylic paintings I’ve been working on lately.
- Update Feb 06, 2012 – Here’s what it looks like in your goddamn dining room:
Here are some iterations of my Bordo Bello skateboard paintings.
Two of five paintings, as my scanner seems to have crapped out during scanning.
This is done and DONE. And I’m pretty sure it still looks like this:
- Start out with a pretty sweet base painting
- Fill in the edges
- Now that’s a fine looking painting you’ve got there
And here are some done-and-DONE abstract acrylic paintings getting ready for a tentative show in Denver this March, 2010.
Brandon Harper Photo, I may need you again soon!
Simply get carried away and add too much white and blue at once! Oh well, it’s all part of the painting process.
Next step: Resurrection. And then another ruining likely. And so on and so on…
Here are some abstract paintings that have been in progress for a while.
The one on the right is looking pretty sweet. The one on the left is still battling against a bit of ‘teh mehz’.
Added some additional differences between the middle and outer pieces. Added a weird blue deletion of the central head, ala the artwork for Iron Maiden’s “Can I Play with Madness”.
The situation becomes more complicated.
Painting progress keeps on and on. The darker pinks are influenced by looking too much at the great paintings of Philip Guston.
