Remembering Dear Old Dad

George Simmons
Singing Self Times Four (my title for his self-portrait, made before digital cameras :^)

My Dad died thirteen years ago today. How he would have enjoyed Photoshop, and Julien Neel! I grew up hearing this tune...

I hermitted away most of last week due to a stomach flu. I'm much better and will give a report from the studio soon!

Trippin' With Beckmann

A few of Max Beckmann's rich, beautiful and disturbing triptychs. So visually satisfying. So powerful. (Wouldn't his iconic figures make an incredible Tarot deck!)

I hardly need to abstract things, for each object is unreal enough already, so unreal that I can only make it real by means of painting. Max Beckmann
