I am excited to recommend Bernice; a hardbound children’s book by: Rob Adamowski, illustrated by: Kellee Beaudry, as “a touching children’s story that just had to be told.”  I was fortunate enough to be a small part of this publication by photographing the author as well as photographing all of the original artwork for the book designer.  Bernice is a wonderful dog and Rob’s story is touching and heartfelt.  This book would be great for any of the children in your life, especially if they are dog lovers.  You may find out more about the book and order your copy through the website here:  BERNICE.

Laura and I both have pieces hanging in the Portland Love Show at Gallery Homeland this February.  You should check it out and buy our art.  My piece is titled LOVE 2007 and is a photograph of a mixed media piece I produced.  Here is the image I reproduced as an 8×11 Archival Mat Print for the show.

From the Love Show website:  “The Love Show is back http://levitrakamagra.com/Launch Pad teams up with Jason Brown and Chris Haberman (Po’Boy Gallery, Peoples Gallery) and Gallery Homeland to present this years show at the Historic Ford Building.”  Over 300 Artists signed up so there should be a diverse collection of Love interpretations.  See you at the opening :-)

Tonight was the opening of Facing Fear at Launch Pad Gallery.  This is an open-call show featuring work by over 100 Artists… Artists making work about facing fear in one way or another…  Laura and I both have pieces hanging in this show and yes, they are fantastic and they are for sale.  You should buy them.  My piece dealt with some of my time based fears and is called Temporal Kitty.  It is the 3 panel wall piece you can see below.  All in all the art is really impressive and should be seen in its entirety.  The show lasts for the month of November and then, I am afraid, it will be gone.

NEW HOURS: Wednesday-Saturday 12 – 4pm, & by appt.


I lived on pizza during one long stretch of my life on this planet.  I love pizza but have had to cut back.  We hardly ever order pizza anymore but when we do, we call Lonesome’s Pizza.

We have been killer busy recently and subjecting ourselves to more prepared foods than normal.  Running a small business is tough and we often have to eat at weird times to accommodate our unpredictable schedule.  Tonight we had one of those days where we discover that mealtime has escaped us in our pursuit of the American Dream.  Lonesome’s to the rescue.

Laura called up a #1: Lee Majors vs. a barracuda with a bowie knife (pizza names change regularly) along with a pint of cold, creamy heaven for dessert (Salted Caramel Ice Cream).  Absolutely delicious and exactly what we needed.

Lonesome’s Pizza makes a killer pie and have crazy artist supporting ways.  Check out their BLOG for more.

A couple of days ago I heard about a possible Banksy sighting here in Portland.  Seriously?  I had to check it out for myself and today I got a chance to stop by the wall outside Sweetpea Baking Co. at SE 12th & Stark.  I shot a couple of images because that is what I do.  Is it Banksy?  You be the judge.  One way or the other, the image is excellent and perfect for Portland.
