Oh and here is a painting of the Mason Hall from my little town of Sierra Madre. Drawings a bit off, but what the hell.

It's nice to see Abe again.

And drawing off or no, the painting has a nice feel to it.

I really like how you handled the sky here, and in most of your work for that matter. And I agree with the previous comment, the piece has a very nice feel to it.

Ever since I found your blog I've been in awe of your work, especially your color use. It's so beautiful.

a. riabovitchev: You're a very versatile artist yourself, equally comfortable with different animation styles, design and digital background art. Please feel free to send me you favorite custom Photoshop brushes. ;-) The Russians are the best painters.

The only thing off on this one is your own opinion!
I think it's my favorite so far!

Landscapes -like small talk and having tact- are not my forté. Even so, your paintings reveal a California I'm much more likely to appreciate and enjoy as I drive around town. I've often wondered if I might actually see you painting somewhere. When it actually happened about a week ago, the whole thing was so surreal that I had to stop and say hi. Thanks for being so kind and funny!

Thanks Christine,
I think I was blessed with a little bit of a natural feel for color. I've learned to understand it more over the years so I can manipulate it better. Where as the drawing... I really had to work at it. Still do.

Sheri, oh it's off. I thnk the lighting is effective enough to hide the fact.

Hope Art Walk was a success! Did anyone buy anything? Meet any unusual characters?

thanks Mark, the moment was a bit surreal. That Zoo drive is a busy little stretch.

Hey Dan,
It was pretty quiet, I guess the artwalk a crap shoot, sometimes a lot of people come in othertimes... I did met some some nice people. Promoing it late the night before might have been a weak move on my part...

Bill, this is my favorite painting. It actually reminds me of a specific day in the 6th grade in Michigan no less. Weird but true.

It's not that great or intriguing a story...just jogs a memory. Thanks for asking though. Ha.
