A Painting of Cooper the Boxer

The dog's name is Cooper.  I know him!

Sorry, folks – I haven’t been out to paint people without getting caught in a month.  I’ve been painting in the studio for an upcoming show.  It’s basically interiors, with some dogs and girls.  You see,  I was brought up in a trailer house in West Texas following wildcat rigs around (I didn’t even think “There Will Be Blood” was that weird!), and always wanted to live in a nice house.  From about the age of 10, I have drawn and painted interiors.  Somtimes, I put women and dogs in the paintings, too.

      Hi, Lauren.

      It was so great to run into you at Central Market today. I really want to get together with you and Julie. As you can see, I have always wanted to paint what I see. It comes to a point, when you just don’t give a damn what anybody thinks, and you just paint or draw what you want. And for me, that is painting right then and there. It’s the only thing that I can do, and I figure that I only have 5-10 more years to do it.
