I boiled three brown eggs, put them in a clear glass bowl, and referenced them for this work. I used the zorn palette for everything except for the green-blue tray. For that, I brought in Radiant Green by Gamblin and King's Blue by Michael Harding. I'll probably eat two of them for part of my dinner tonight and then the other one will be eaten by someone in this household by the time I wake up tomorrow.

I referenced my bottle of #Tanqueray for this work ... which of course made me think of this song by #amywinehouse

Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt
Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt
You say "What did you do with him today?
And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray.

Yesterday I made an ink-on-paper study referencing a photo by @noirboudior. Today, I referenced that study to paint this work as I contemplate the pangs of frequent isolated showers. And then the acute pain of occasional torrential storms. The pangs, the pain, always followed by the faithful sun that arrives to make flowers and hope grow.

I referenced an image by @noirboudior for this work. What a summer it's been.

It brought peace to my mind
In the summertime
And it rolled
Summer ... oh ...
Oh ... the summertime rolls

This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private painting session today for a group of lovely artists. Our entire group used the same photo reference that I used for the painting I made yesterday. I really enjoyed the way everyone's work came out. After all of the artists left the studio, I turned up the music, added some additional strokes, and a line from one of my favorite #RoyOrbison songs ...

I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say "Hello" You wished me well, you couldn't tell

That I'd been #crying ...

I referenced a photo of @elizachemendia as captured by @agataserge and curated by @theportraitprOject for this work. After I painted the portrait, I painted a Star of David onto her blouse, inspired by #BillyJoel who recently gave a concert wearing a Star of David on his jacket ... to simply and powerfully protest the latest resurgence of Neo-Nazis in America who have become emboldened to march without hoods, many wearing MAGA hats, chanting "Jews will not replace us" and "Fuck you faggots."

During the Holocaust (1941 to 1945), Nazis in Germany hated the Jewish people and targeted them as scapegoats for societal woes and systematically murdered approximately 6 million of them.

How did a people get to that place of hating a group so much that they systematically murdered them? Could it happen again? Only if we put our heads in the sand and avoid resisting the ignorant madness.
