Haven’t posted in a while, still…

I am working on a larger painting to go in my next show. The only hint I can give away at this time is that it involves octopus tentacles and phoenix feathers. More to come soon…

Chirping Birds and Paintings Flying off of Walls

Saturday’s gallery show was a big success…I sold some work and met some amazing artists, Harry Carmean among them–who trudged all the way out from his studio near Palmdale for the evening!! The exhibit was a blast. And many thanks to all those that came out to my show! Visit my BLOG to check out my newest painting, “Mr and Mrs Owl”, which debuted Saturday.

Tori Amos’ American Doll Posse

Sunday night was the Tori Amos American Doll Posse concert. It was AMAZING!!!!!!!! Tori was SPECTACULAR, as usual! Tori Amos American Doll Posse art
The show was at the new Nokia theater downtown. For the tour she has been opening as different ADP personalities….I was so curious as to who she would be Sunday….turned out to be Isabel, Pip, and of course Tori. She opened with “Yo George” and it was amazing from there forward. Her energy was overwhelming…and it changed each time she transformed into different characters….when she came out as Pip in black spandex the entire mood of the show shifted away from the mellow, cool, and politically-charged persona of Isabel, to Pip’s angry, aggressive, and daring rocker-girl persona.

Our seats were in the front and dead center, so that was fantastic! She actually played a lot of older music which was incredible because the last couple tours I’ve been to haven’t done too much of that. Her personality was also completely different–last time for the Beekeeper tour she was chatty, glamorous and feminine…this time she was strong, rockin’ out and intellectual. She just played solid sets…for 2.5 hours! It was absolutely incredible, not that I expect anything less from Tori Amos. I didn’t bring my camera, but I was able to grab some cell phone pictures off ToriAmos.com from the concert.
