Fall and 3 Gnossiennes

The Bohemian portrait of Erik Satie

A friend sent me Ciccolini's version of Erik Satie's 3 Gnossiennes a while ago. I like the pace of it much better than most versions I've heard, but I haven't had much of a chance to listen to it. So today I put it in while I was working...painting by the window with the (finally) much cooler air coming in, flocks of geese flying over, squirrels dropping walnuts from the tree... It just seemed to fit the day.
At the top, 'The Bohemian portrait of Erik Satie' by Santiago Rusinol, mainly because I love the room.  Can't wait for Fall!
Update Mar. 20,2012...I just noticed that the video I had posted has been removed from YouTube. Since I can't find a replacement, I have substituted it with this version.

Le petit musee de Lou

It's no secret that I love anything to do with early apothecary, natural history, cabinet of when I come across great photographs like these of the things I love, I have no choice but to post them.
Beautiful, no?

Drawn conclusion

I recently came across some old photos of artwork I had done in the past. Really lousy photos taken long before a digital camera...and I had been thinking about whether or not I should post any of them on here. I mean, as well as being a blog, this also functions as a kind of personal scrapbook of what I'm working on.
So this morning when I stumbled across this picture from Little Blue Deer...

...seeing obvious similarities, I decided to post this...

A charcoal and conte drawing on paper of my favorite old wool coat from College. Both the drawing and the coat are long gone, and I wouldn't mind having either of them back again.
