Happy Earth Day!

It's that time a year again... the ONE day out of the year when we appreciate the one place in the universe (theoretically speaking) where the chemical balance is just right to sustain life. COME ON... ONE day our of 365???

Not to get preachy on you or anything-but I will if I have to- We should be mindful stewards! We need to be. OUR existence depends on it.

Pick up some trash on the side of the road, reycyle, plant a tree, carpool to work when you can. These simple everyday things can change the world.

I found a cool site you should check out and donate to:

If you need some a gift or new art for the house? How about some ECO ART?? Please click the link ECOART.

$1 will plant a tree! I will donate 1% of the proceeds from ECO art purchased to the American Forests service each year from now on out. I haven't posted this on my website yet but I will be making that change soon!

The Weekend....

... was GREAT!! :)
The Bruins evened the series with the Sabers 1 all and it came down to the wire. The g/f and I went on a nice adventure into the beautiful town of Sandwich, NH. I wish I had my camera because the sights were amazing!! Lately we have been getting some crazy weather - I suppose we all have - it has been snowy, rainy and raw. Not too much fun to be outside in, however, it makes for great picture taking.
We were driving along on Saturday and we saw some snow scattered about amongst some fairly long blades of grass that were brilliant-almost neon- Green that just popped with the White snow around it and the dark Blue lake and Gray overcast sky in the background. There were tons of opportunities to stop and take pics....
... Thankfully, I am getting my camera back this weekend.

I also worked on my two commissions this weekend for about 4 1/2 hours! I just started working on the second painting while waiting for the first to dry and it is coming along nicely! I do love using oil paints as I can take an hour off and go back into the painting and it's still wet. As the commissions are a surprise I won't reveal too much information. Once they are completed and shipped out, I will upload the finish product. :)

Until then enjoy , "The Grateful Bruins" icon I have attached above. The Bruins are playing to night and are tied 1-1 going into the 3rd period.... GO BRUINS!!

Okay, last night was a long one as I work some more on the commission's I need to complete and ship out at the end of next month.

Spent 2.5 hours straight last night working on part of the first painting. I am using oil paints and if you're not familiar with oil paint, they take FOREVER to dry...which -depending upon who you are- can be a good thing. To me it is a good thing! :)

I was a bit discouraged at first as I just wanted to go in there and finish the painting bada bing, bada boom... I forgot that it takes time to achieve a certain level of expectations and patience is a virtue... especially while working with oil paints.

As last night shows, taking the time and putting in the effort really pays off and I am truly happy with the way things are going.

While I wait for this painting to dry I am working on several other projects and creating more t-shirts!!!

If you need some new threads for the summer check out the shirts on the previous post or you can visit my Facebook page as I haven't uploaded them to the web site yet.

Spring is HERE!... for now

It's finally warm up here in the middle of NH!!! Well it's about time, but wait, all that's going to change shortly as it's suppose to get chilly again. :(

Hopefully this summer is a lot better than last 2009.

Anyways, things are moving along for me... I have two commissions I need to finish and I need to start doing some printing for the upcoming art show down in Keene, NH (Art In the Park). Last year was a lot of fun and this year should be even better because now I know what I am doing! :)

I do a lot of my printing with a company called

I just so happen to be a graphic designer at MegaPrint and we do some really great work! We do anything from Photo Enlargements to Tradeshow Graphics, to Vinyl Banners and so on.
