Earlier this year, I made this in response to the ill-conceived commercial made by a soda company that I felt trivialized race relations. When the push-back from the public happened, the company fumbled again, as they groveled at the feet of Kendall Jenner who was in the commercial rather than addressing the offensive ad. #theoutrage​ #resistancelog #artandactivismlog

I enjoyed taking some creative license to add magical colors to the cast shadow of this peachy peach.

I referenced an image by @ourgoldenmoon for this work. While painting this, I thought about the quote by #GustaveFlaubert I kept repeating to artists the past week:

"Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work."

I referenced an image by @piersparello for this work ... and found myself singing this song by #louisarmstrong as I put the final strokes on:

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I painted this o during an uninstructed Live Model Open Studio in Studio Crescendoh today. I did almost everything with the #zornpalette but ended up squeezing a little bit of ultramarine blue to paint the shirt. I quite like the challenge of painting mostly zorn ... until I can't stand it anymore and then allowing myself a little bit of a non-zorn color.

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.
