Watching the documentary "Art and Craft" on Amazon Instant View tonight.  It is OK.  Mark Landis is a frail, sickly, yet very gifted art forger.  Interesting movie.  Too slow for me.

Just finished this Aggie painting (below) called 'Angel on My Shoulder.'  On Facebook, no one seems interested in buying a print of it.  Maybe it's too purplish.  Julie thinks that it is too close-up.  I give myself an A+ for effort, but a C- on execution.  Oh well.  I guess you can't win 'em all, right?

.

An aquaintance in L.A., a mentor of sorts (J. Michael Walker), who I just met briefly in his studio in L.A. this summer, encouraged me on FB today to work more on my sculpture busts.  I am excited to continue to evolve in that genre.

The L.A. artist Jon Measures is inspiring me lately.  We had a brief discussion last night on FB.  Hope to meet him and the L.A. photographer Eric Minh Swenson perhaps this summer.
