“April Showers” A modestly abstracted celebration of Bull riding rodeo is also a metaphorical pronouncement to do one’s best when life deals you lemons. Hang on for the lemonade!

April Showers

This is installment one of “April Showers”, a painting which merges Western Rodeo with the emotional feelings of riding out hard times.

The painting is a watercolor 2.5’x5.0′ I sketched it in pencil then blocked in some color then gave it a once over with gesso. It created a nice starting point.

The Conversation

It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the environment.

Earthly Matters

Life is not stranger than you think- Life is stranger than you can think.

Mash Up Artwork

The following is a sampling (large sampling) of artwork produced around the Mash Up series over the past couple of years. Some of it has shown up on the blog before but I thought it would be good to show it again as its own group. When I view it together it really makes me smile.

For those of you have not heard of the Mash Up, It is a musical event. In the past it has been a series of three concerts. They show at the Chautauqua Music Hall in Boulder Colorado. The purpose of the program is to produce new original performances. It is really awesome.

Here is some art.

Splatter Painting

Tempest

Here is a painting about colon cancer. I know when you look at it you will wonder what in the heck is Sam talking about? I will explain in brevity. Cancer is a condition that produces intense emotion. The person affected is plunged into a life and death battle. All the while loving friends and family are reduced to sideline players. But love does get through. That is why this painting is called the Tempest. Above the water a storm rages. Beneath is calm. But a connection exists. We are all caring a burden.

Let kindness prevail

Secrets

We all know how they spread. Or saved, bearing interest.

Intrigue, shadowy, a possession laden with trust,

surrounded with security.

Perhaps best avoided.

And yet, romantic and mysterious.

I Blog Therefore I Post

I think some one once said that?

Tonight I want to write poem, but i am not a poet so if i might beg, don’t be to hard on me.

Two souls connect through orange.

Life is full of insignificant detail,

But connections are made. Fibers build.

And somewhere there is crackling. Like energy in the line.

No prediction can be made.

and yet.

Like a boulder atop a hill, there is latent power.

Heres to friendship.
