New studio

I have a new studio in the Dry Ice building at 3300 Walnut Street. Here are some photos; the lower ones are the studio and the upper ones show the studio as I have moved stuff in this weekend. I am lucky that it is so close to home and it has marvelous morning light. Can't wait to start painting there.

For Jimmy

I finished this painting at the end of March and I am really happy with it. Though the form came from lots of different things, the content is really about missing my brother, Jimmy, who died last year. For a long time I felt nothing creative and didn't do much work but as time passed I sensed the need to put my grief into the work and not deny it. The formal title is For JBS, Full House
Full House is for poker, one of his passions and also because he did love home and family.
