Happy May4th!
posted: May 4, 2010
The cool thing about having a name that does double duty as a date (aside from the self promo value that I've been milking for decades) is that it's like having a second bithday with out the age baggage. This year, my band The Heckhounds booked a May 4th gig at the local live music hot spot, The Langdon Street Cafe. And since I had  been talking with the owners about showing my paintings, this seemed like the perfect time for the stars to align. So this evening there will be an opening for my paintings (of sorts) with music by The Heckhounds, or maybe the other way around. Either way it may be a tad self indulgent on my part, but promises to be fun for all.
Here are some of the paintings appearing in the show.
Blue Star Runaround...
Blind Petey's Birthday Bash...
All Inclusive Holiday...
Whooosh!...

I just woke up under the picnic table with no shirt or shoes but wearing someone else's socks. We do May 4th here and we do it BIG. Absolutely our favorite holiday. Paintings look great, Hal. I especially love "Whoosh". All have a beautifully subdued and refined palette.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Last night was a boat load of fun, But May 4th is just the gateway drug to Cinquo de Mayo. Happy May 5th to everyone.
