Oil on black canvas, 10x10, $125
IF YOU'RE TRAVELING anywhere this summer, be prepared to be delayed by road construction. I went to Cincinnati and Omaha and back, and encountered construction - mostly bridge repair - on every road I traveled. Interstate 80 was the worst, with construction pretty much everywhere.
I have to say that I got a good look at some of the bridges being worked on, and they were scary. This one, which I believe is in West Virginia, is nowhere near the worst. One bridge being worked on in Ohio was literally crumbling as I drove across it.
All those news stories about the state of our infrastructure? They're right, and not exaggerating.
Dog of the Day
AT THE PARADISE CITY Art Festival, I was part of a surprise involving this painting. Great fun! And here is Boy himself, looking at the painting. I think it's a scream that the dog in the painting is bigger than the dog in real life.
A Final Thought
"If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you:
I am here to live out loud."
- Emile Zola
