birds of prey. diptych is a funny word, but thats what you call two paintings.

 Jacob Wooton, That's who I am, and if my theories are correct, than this image will appear when you google search me.  Because thats what it takes nowadays. You gotta be one step ahead. Don't worry there's always someone behind you to be one step ahead of, they just happen to be mostly infants.

finished this tiger last week. Success! ..in it's way.

Jacob Wooton
I painted it onto the bottom of an old drawer I found laying in a heap by my friends house. When you are always on the lookout for junk to paint on, there are sometimes moments when you wonder if you weren't just stealing someone else's special junk. I had a guy yell at me for looking through the trash behind Office Max once. He told me I was stealing if I took anything out of their trash. They actually break and cut all the crap they have to throw away at the end of the year, to reduce their inventory before taxes. It seems like they could get just as good of a wright off by donating it to charity or something. I don't get it. Add it to the list of stuff I don't get I guess.

another month up at EASTBURN! New Paintings!

I've been copying images from this big book of african animals I got from the library. Now i have to return the book so I don't get fined. I need to score some new animal books at goodwill, so I don't have to think about what to paint. Last week i got a cool book on WWII airplane nose art. Thats awesome and brainless. I am using some of those images to do a bunch of mini-paintings on wood, also this space book Nolan gave me and the usual Jaque Custou type of stuff.

Putting winter behind me now.




Here the little human works some powerful magic on the coarse stuff of the earth. You can see how the world has changed in the course of a few months, and also some photos of the mural as it stands on 20th ad Morisson at Modo. The scary part is a painting of a water baby, as described on the bulletin board at bagby.

More evidence of life on earth.





This is what life looks like, it looks like pretty good times. We have the little man eating pickles at Wolf and Bears while we wait for dinner. Sister looks chilled out and hungry.
Here you have a little naked human at the hot springs, well built little feller.
Here he is pictured snuggling Momma in the sun rays. And here pictured getting pushed around on his little bike at speeds greater than 2 knots.

gleaning in the basement...




These are the crappiest photos I could take of whats left in the basement after a year without painting...

Changing my life with plein air painting. Year one.

About this time last year my life got kind of shaken out. Im not here to tell you about my personal drama, but suffice it to say I ended ...
