Here's a few different stages of the painting I am working on. It is 40x70 and it was started at Casa di Dante in Florence.

The Great Scam of the modern University Education

Here is a great video clip on 20/20 that aired the other night. Follow the link and go to the January 16th clip called "College: Worth the Price of Admission?" Any of us who have been to college, only to find out how little they had to offer us, can relate to this.

My First Post

I have decided that I need a way to keep in better touch with all those artists out there who I respect. I have a million thoughts about painting, processes, methods, materials and so on, but not many people in my immediate surroundings to share them with. So I'm hoping to share them here and have this become a vehicle for the expansion of those thoughts.
So, to ease into it without getting too heavy right away, I just have to say that Cheezits are the best snack food for painting. I'm trying to cut down on soda, but Pespi sure does go well with the Cheezits.
Okay, now that I have broken the ice, maybe it will be easier to get in the habit of posting things on here (things of more significance I hope). Here's a photo to make this more interesting.
