Poster for our show Originally uploaded by angrypirate. Today we hang our show at the abbey. I’m not ready, no one in, bur after we are all hung, we are going to have a nice, big dinner together. We are just hanging two pieces each. I have four, but none are finished. I will scramble […]
Battle under the sea Originally uploaded by angrypirate. A watercolor in my journal. The squid is my inner critic. The whale is my creativity. I wonder who will win.
Spooky Originally uploaded by angrypirate. Van gogh lived and painted not too far from here and I can’t help thinking about that as I walk amongst the fields and cherry trees.
Here it is! Originally uploaded by angrypirate. Hope the colors came out ok in my camera phone.

From my sketchbook Bugs are nice.
I have a very nice sketchbook. I bought it almost a year ago and it is so nice, I haven’t been able to make a single mark in it. I want to make sure that on my trip, I do lots and lots of watercolor studies in it. I’m afraid that even when I get […]
Don’t forget people, the opening for Selections is tomorrow night at the LIMN gallery. I’m super excited and they didn’t even pick me! You should be excited too because my former studio mate, Karen Olsen-Dunn is in the show and my friend Joe Hayes is playing in his band. My dear friend Michelle Wilcove was […]
I played around with the layout for angrypirate.com a little bit today. Added some nice photos in the masthead and made it a little more consistant with this here blog. I even added a masthead to indiegeek as I’ve decided I’m going to incorporate it into angrypirate someday. It’s probably just really confusing right now […]
I am! I am! I just made this bag. No pattern, no nothing, just a $5 remnant of demin, some nylon straps, a 36″ heavy duty zipper, a couple D rings and some sewing. I even added one of my cool angrypirate.com tags just to be really impressive. I think it’s over sewn, Can you […]
I’m getting a little carried away maybe. I started gessoing my “scrap” canvas and discovered I had enough for 4 decent sized canvases, plus three around 18″ x 24″ and two smaller ones. I have visions of oil paint and embroidery floss. This stack, when rolled up around a wrapping paper tube, is quite bulky. […]

Having fun with colors and circles. This is a starfish underbelly. The photo didn’t turn out too great. Sorry.
Yesterday I worked all day and at the end of the day, felt like I had accomplished very little. So to make myself feel better, here’s a list of what I did: – worked for ArtSpan a few hours – wrote an artist statement for the new encaustics, compiled a folder of digital images of […]
I bought a french beachwood, full drawer sketchbox easel from DickBlick.com last semester. Turns out, I don’t really want it. I can’t take it on my scooter, it’s too big for our apartment, and well, it’s just taking up room. Do you want it? I’ll sell it to you for $40. I only used it […]
I got a new dresser this week and yesterday I painted it. It’s a dark purple underneath with thin layers of light purple and creamy yellow on top. I now have a little more room to stash stuff away from site. I am hoping this will finally eliminate my “mystery pile” that always accumulates next […]
