Face in the Mop

Once you see this Bunsen Honeydew-like face on the side of this mop, you can't un-see it. Also reminds me of a Don Martin character.

Puppy Painting

Among the peculiar items that already came pre-loaded with my new studio/gallery in the Highlands: this painting of a pile of pups, given a lavishly ornate gilt frame. It's actually a pretty good painting, although the perspective of the head of the dog chewing another dog's ear is off. But hey, what do I know, I paint cartoon ducks in bow ties.

King of Fans

I will always be...

Jack Fry's at Dawn

Blurry Blue Mary

The macro on my camera absolutely refused to focus on this Virgin Mary night-light. I wonder if the blue light had anything to do with it; I've noted oddities in the way my camera responds to blues and purples in the past.

Baer Fabrics

Taken from moving car.

Despite reports that it was torn down, it's still standing. For now.

End of Campbell Street

Campbell's a funny street. One end of it just vanishes near River Road, and the other comes to an abrupt dead-end here in the hospital district.

Antique Victorian Print

It came with the house.

I sometimes fear that I'll eventually end up inside the picture, like Jack Nicholson at the end of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.

New Art Studio

My latest designated island of sanity - a historic old house in the Highlands that, while greatly in need of repair and restoration, suits my purposes perfectly for a workshop/painting studio/getaway.

Removal of a false dropped ceiling that some goob added sometime in the last 50 years revealed glimpses of the amazing original hand-stenciled art-nouveau ceiling.
