THUSDAY, at lunch
Mary Carapoulis sneezed on Jeffrey Balco's tuna and peanut butter sandwich. She told me she's allergic....to certain cooties incubating on a certain boy who is so utterly unpopular that her nasal passages flare into a snotty rage.
You might be aware that only one or two veterans are still alive from WWI. And the countdown has a certain gravitas that makes one introspective.
One day Woodstock will have such a countdown and I'll be laughing my ass off.
This is a real book cover for a work on how the free market is having a hard time catching on in Russia.
If I ever own a bookstore...
I came across a few baseball pieces I did a few years ago and I think they have a certain romance and nostalgia that is refreshing.
This is the first of four pieces I did based on America's Pastime. Look for the rest of them this week.
10" x 8.5
This is the second piece of a series on baseball I did a few years back.

This is the third piece of a series on baseball I did a few years ago.

Fourth and last piece in this baseball series I did a few years ago.
I thought this group of work would be fun to offer up. Please note that the pieces are laser prints and ARE NOT MATTED AND FRAMED. I just wanted to show what they could look like on a den wall.
The bids are for all FOUR pieces only. Please, no offers for individual pieces.
SPECIAL NOTE: There are no reproductions of these prints. This collection is the whole sh-bang.

I wanted to do this illustration to present a tough question: Is our interest in Afghanistan beyond current American financial practicality? Your thoughts.....
It seems a clever song parody on YouTube included my caricature of Obama. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IQSbJUj7u8

This is recently finished painting that's part of a Southern gothic theme I've been developing for my October 3rd show at Sylvia's 120 Sycamore Place Gallery. I'm titling the show "The Southerness".
I have mentioned on my other painting posts that I've been working on a body of work that focuses on my memories growing up in the South. I'm twelve finished pieces into this endeavor and I think it has been a wonderful way to explore the enigmatic nature of this region.
