The poetic, is that of the unanswered accident of the avalanche, of the absurd death, and this absurd life. It is of good intentions and bad memories, the prejudices and the adolescent longings, the bullshit and the disappointment. It is the physical embodiment of misunderstanding. I paint because I can't get the experience in any other way but there are many more experiences that are equally satisfying to me and equally inept at answering all of my questions. They hover in an area that defies logic to me, but seem to be living, breathing, dying, and charming a world arrested in laughter, compassion, horror, beauty, and relics leaning towards the light and back into the dark.

And empty days like these are full of time to stare the color real until the perch slips off the sketchpad into the lake and darts for sedge. Bubbles of his going bloom along the surface. They give off definite odors hermits remember well.

My gallery in Minneapolis is having a opening to celebrate it's new exhibition space. Artist Kathleen Waterloo is the lead off artist, her work is solid, and very well executed. Should be fun, music by Estate and DJ LooseLeaph, so if in Minneapolis, Go!

Every Scene Needs A Center

My old band mates, TULLYCRAFT, are playing a show tonight as they celebrate an album release as well at the Crocodile Cafe.
The album is titled Every Scene Needs A Center, and from the one song I have on here, it seems like the long hours have paid off! Joining in the fun tonight as well will be
Math and Physics Club and Patience Please.

Congratulations Sean, Chris, Jeff, Cori, and Jenny! See you all tonight!
