Today

I just need to post this video so people can know that when you engage in a discussion with McPherson about art philosophy you might do it when he’s NOT holding a saw in his hand. I love it when Ben says, “yeah I guess thats true.” Jeff, thanks for saving my life.

And this is a common occurrence when you get 4 visually opinionated guys together and you’re trying to make decisions about aesthetics. Its a real journey. And then Ben just starts pulling out some moves he learned in Farmington back in 92′.

New Work

This is one of my most recent paintings entitled (Repentence), it currently resides at the Blue Rain gallery in Santa Fe. I felt like this painting was a breakthrough for me, especially in the flesh tones. Jeff, Justin, and Sean have really taught me a great deal about painting. There was so much of the nuance of painting that I took for granted before I associated with them. Ben

Dust in the nostrils, and tar on my heals

there’s a certain exhilarating feeling that occurs when you first fire up a sander revealing a pure wood-grain underneath centuries of buildup. That initial rush soon dissipates as you begin smelling your own recycled breath in the respirator, soon thereafter your eyes begin to burn from the micro dust absorbing every last trickle of moisture you can produce. Its all tolerable on some level until you run into floor problems, in this case, a giant tar pit. You cant sand it, you can’t scrape it, but it turns out that in total frustration you can pour sawdust and cement powder on it, and wall-ah it comes right up. Bet you didn’t know that Bob Villa.
