Four Flowers and Two Hands

Hi Everyone! I know it has been a few days since I've posted, but my teaching load has increased, and I've been feeling rather fatigued lately. Belated 'Happy Valentine's day' to everyone! I revamped my picture of the posies, because this finished picture is how I envisioned it, but I didn't have enough time to finish it before. It is an acrylic painting, and it is much larger than my scanner. So, I will have to wait till my son comes home from school to take a full size picture of it. My other new expressionist inspired paintings are still hanging at the group show at: Couth Buzzard Books - Espresso Buono in Greenwood. I have a super long day tomorrow and a gig tomorrow night with Granite Reign. So, night night.
ps: My student, Elaine, turned me onto the beautiful music from the Okami game - This is the piano version of The Sun Rises.

Four Flowers and Two Hands
Four flowers and two hands
Searching across strange lands
For that would be true love
That would be golden dove
That will bring happily ever after

Prim Primrose

Hi everyone! I can't believe it has been over a week since I posted to my blog. What can I say, my clones haven't arrived yet.
Hopefully they will be here by next week. I was saddened to hear of the passing of L. J. Porter last week. She was an awesome singer and a great supporter of the blues- R. & B. music scene. I played some fun gigs with Bill Blackstone, Tim Turner, and Charles Mac at the 13 Coins the previous weekend - Jan. 28th & 29th. Feb. 5th I played with Granite Reign and the Feb. 6th with Tim Turner and Billy Spaulding. I installed a few pieces of my art in the group show at Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe - 8310 Greenwood Ave. N. This weekend I'm excited to play with Scott Rosburg (Striker - Rosburg/Randall) and Rick Spano (Randy Hansen's drummer) up in Granite Falls at Los Flamingos.
We haven't played together in awhile, so it will be like a live rehearsal. We are going by the name of Helium.
Off to another day of teaching, working on some tunes, and hopefully painting. Have a nice day!
I've linked one of my favorite songs to this posting. I will add a poem later.
Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky - Romeo & Juliet Love Theme
