Tryptich? Triptych?

Hang on. I've been spelling this different ways for too long. Let me www.m-w.com it.

Ok it's "triptych".

Whew.

Now that the holidays are over I'm working on new paintings. Another Joe Strummer painting, this time for one of my oldest clients, Mark Lind, buyer of the Joan Jett.

I've started sketches for front and back album covers for my good friend Peet Golan. This one will be interesting. The concept he gave me to work with is cool as hell. More to come.

I'm also working on, you guessed it, a triptych for a couple friends of mine from highschool. They were married recently and need some new decoration for their home.

Just like last time with my friend Dara, my friends had no idea what they wanted, they just new they wanted one of my paintings. So I went about it the same way I did before. I had them send me a list of nouns, adjectives, verbs... whatever came to mind... just as long as it was things they enjoyed. It worked pretty well for Dara and hopefully it'll work for Dave and Sue.


Here's Dara's painting to refresh your memory...



And here are the progress photos over the last week of Dave and Sue's triptych to be...







It's funny how both lists from completely different people had quite a few of the same things on them. I'm sure me putting both lists through my ringer had a part in the similarities.

Regardless, I enjoy doing these stream of consciousness paintings. It's a cool way to manifest someone's thoughts. Acting like a visual mouthpiece.

If anyone wants to send me a list... you know where to find me.

Thank you. Funny, I listened to that album on the way down to the cape on Christmas.

Ah - the smenita! - Blogger sux tonight...LOL..I got it several times too. It does sound sort of sexy though, doesn't it?

The art is lovely as always.

I appreciate your remark about the Rock and Soul. I realize they don't go together, but it was my first time on Finetune and I screwed up. Listen to #8. I got better!

Cheers!
