For those who are interested: Here is a detail from the painting I started to help Jim Spiri raise funds for his Iraq/Afghanistan embed- And here is the latest where I am beginning to block in background colors- This is taking a LOT longer than I anticipated. And I still have to do a landscape for the winner of my own website fund raiser!! So much painting. So little time. If only I got paid to do this stuff full time, eh? Still … its a good way to support our troops so I think its working out just fine. I’ll keep you posted.

What else is this crazy man up to???
Hi ALCON, I thought you might like to know about something else going on behind the scenes here at DBS central. There’s a combat photographer named Jim Spiri who I’m trying to help send over to Iraq/A-stan by painting a version of one of his photographs. He took a pic of some Marines on a roof top that I thought was rather striking. So I’m do a 3ft by 4ft version of it in acrylic to raffle off for fund raising. Heres a shot from the painting where I’ve started in monochromatic blue in order to work out the light/dark details: Yeah, that’s my arm you see on the right. My code diva has a few more pics. I’ll see if I can get her to put them up sometime soon so that you can see the progress as it occurs. As they say, “Stay tuned!”
