I referenced a photo by @jodicobbphoto for @natgeo for this work. I just fell in love with the entire composition ... with the minimalist architecture, the beautiful shadows, and the American flag dancing in the air. Long may it wave.


#resistancelog (oligarch edition)


OligarchsDid you know that:

  • Our new Commerce Secretary is a man named Wilbur Ross?
  • The German bank named Deutsche Bank was discovered to have move and launder $10 billion out of Russia and that those dollars included accounts by Vladimir Putin and other Russian oligarchs?
  • Deutsche Bank has branches in Moscow, New York, and Cyprus (an island country in the East Mediterranean) called Bank of Cyprus?
  • After the laundering scandal, the chairman of Deutsche Bank became chairman of Bank of Cyprus, which is the bank where Russian oligarchs go to launder their money?
  • Two of the largest shareholders of Bank of Cyprus are Russian oligarchs Vickor Vekselberg (friend of Putin) and Dmitry Rybolovlev (known as the King of Fertilizer)? 
  • As Rybolovlev was going through a nasty divorce was buying expensive property in order to tie up his money from the divorce settlement?
  • One of the things Rybolovlev bought in 2008 was a humongous estate in Florida for $100 million from Donald Trump?
  • Donald Trump had bought that Florida estate from an auction, just two years prior in 2006 for $40 million? 
  • Neither oligarch Rybolovlev nor Trump ever met to make this deal but worked only with intermediaries?
  • Aside from Russian Oligarchs Rybolblev and Vekselberg's high stature in the Bank of Cyprus there is one American who also has high stature in that bank and serves as one of its two vice-chairmen and that his name is Wilbur Ross?

Kudos to Rachel Maddow for connecting these very important dots and reporting on all of this on February 27, 2017. Do you want to better understand the disgusting behavior or Russian oligarchs and their track-record of destroying humans in their quest for money? Then I highly recommend that you read Red Notice by Bill Browder. It is an important book.

I think the reason Fascist45 isn't showing his taxes is because once we get forensic auditors to look at his taxes, we will learn that he is as disgusting as these oligarchs who he has been in bed with, with his insatiable thirst for money. Is there a dossier that could potentially ruin Fascist45? If Russian oligarchs were involved with any business dealings where they agreed to pocket Trump a cool $60 million with a real estate transaction, you better believe there is a dossier. That's the way oligarchs do business. You don't get to pocket $60 million for nothing.

Reno Tahoe Tonight Magazine Interview


RenomagI was recently interviewed for Reno Tahoe Tonight magazine and I'm so honored to be the cover story for the March issue. I'm so very happy with how it turned out. Among other things, we discuss art, music, my exhibitionist tendencies, discipline, freedom, and why in many ways, painting helps me live another day. Here's the link. Starts on page 16. Thanks for reading it.

For my 50th birthday, my kids went on eBay and got me a vintage Nintendo Game Boy, which I referenced for this work. I used to have one way back when and I loved it so much. They got me two game cartridges too: Tetris and Ms. Pacman ... the only two games I really ever played ... quite passionately I might add. The device seemed so modern back then. Hahaha. When I play it today, it feels not so modern but still so fun.

I referenced an image of Jon Heder in his role as Napoleon Dynamite for this work. In response to last night's presidential address to congress, I imagine Napoleon would say something like: "What a faker. He's still taking away my health care. He hates Pedro. And when's he gonna show his flippin' taxes? Gosh!"

I referenced I photo I took of flowers that I bought a couple of weeks ago from my local florist, Lavenders Flowers. I put three white flowers and a lavender rose into a jelly jar and took a down shot of this grouping.

I referenced a photo by The New Yorker for this work. Just love seeing his cute little head peeking above the water and the upper portion of his majestic body visually shattered by the wave of the water.

I actually like to brush and floss ... but not as much as I love to rinse with the intense burn of Listerine, which I didn't include in the still life composition for this work.

I used two tea cups and a spoon from our kitchen to reference for this work. And incredibly, the more I practice painting still life, the better I paint faces. And the more I paint flowers, the better I paint dogs in water. And so on. A good reminder that lessons about this thing here are sometimes found way over there.
