Cat in a Fish Suit

I painted this for my sweet teaching gig at Wine & Palette, here in Okc. I definitely absorbed as much Van Gough as I could when I was an avid oil painter in my twenties, but I feel like that cat represents my inner foodie, the selfish part that wants a perfect burger to exist in Okc, but instead finds himself dressed up in a fish suit, again, forced to eat Fancy Feast or ice cream shared off the spoon of a crying, lonely middle aged woman in pajamas. Not that there’s anything wrong with pajamas, ice cream,  or middle aged women without cats.  I guess I’m just saying that neither should involve a fish suit. Or don’t trust a fish burger.  Whichever means more to you. Just please, someone in Oklahoma City metro make a burger that doesn’t taste like a crazy cat lady made it.

Boo Memories: Blithe, lazy circles in the yard

See this face? This is the face of a man purposefully trying to recreate the 80’s movie Karate Kid signature crane kick stance on a paddle board in a creek.  So I’d like to take this time to thank all anyone who had to look at this face for whatever reason or reasons in the past, and my amazing girlfriend Jennifer.  You didn’t have to stick through something like that, and yet you did.  I was considering uploading videos of me working on jewelry, painting, talking about my craft and the crazy internet articles or cat pics I ran across that day, but after seeing that face, well, I won’t punish the Internet for my and nature’s misdeeds.

 

Maybe I can start a Bob Ross style painting podcast.
