It was already February and no New Years resolution. Comfort, routines, boredom and the same. So I've decided to change plans, better yet, toss them completely… Get the gum from my shoes and glue from my feet. Just get out the house. Every day something new, that's my goal, just do something. I'll be capturing the moments in an attempt to tackle a whole year. Looking for inspiration and always hoping to inspire...

Four years of living in Savannah and not once had I swung on the swings at Forsyth Park. "New" - the fun and easy 5AM way..

Rich was kind enough to let me try the much talked about "conquistador sandwich" from Zunzi's off Drayton St. Now I get it..

I used to own a bike in Savannah but had never rented one there until today. Easy breezy southern living, how I miss you so...

Inspired by Radiolab's recent Desperately Seeking Symmetry episode, I decided to try out a day with my part on the opposite side of my head from normal. ( Left photo: Regular part - Right photo: ** Opposite part).
After an uncomfortable 5 hours and a few self portrait shots for examination, I decided I'd had it right the first time and swished myself back to normal.

Today my friend Jordan and I volunteered as body painters for the Hudson River Pageant. It was a perfect blend of bizarre, random, and awesome! I had no idea what I was getting myself into but in the end had fun getting messy, aiding the environment, and hanging with my girl!

In passing, I was stopped by this oil painting by Gary Ruddell. I found it so pleasantly strange. Realistic yet surreal with just the right amount of tension. Later, after looking him up, I was and wasn't surprised to learn that he's an American painter best known for his cover paintings for works of science fiction and fantasy literature. Interesting..

Dear Black light owners,
Your life needs one of these! For further info on Ron Agam's tripped out, neon, acrylic/resin, mega paintings... head to Bertrand Delacroix Gallery in Chelsea.

And on a side note: Bertrand Delacroix is one hell of a name... just sayin..

Today I stopped by one of the many galleries on my way to work and got a kick out of seeing Simon Evan's Shitty Heaven exhibit. His mixed media collages portray visions of the 'other world' as a planned suburban community. A 'dystopic heaven where "things just happen and people blow apart." Allllllrriiiggghhttyyyy then Simon. Maps, flowcharts, sarcasm, glue, etc.. I'm in..

If you ever want to see excitement and indecision past level ten, put a mound of finger puppets in my face. My lack of cash allowed for only a single kangaroo buy, but next paycheck, you can bet I'll have one in every color... And if you're into watching grown ass men melt into babies, grab a camera and take em to Flight Club..

First trip to Les Halles for a delicious birthday dinner with some amazing friends!

Galerie Lelong. Jaume Plensa is blowing my mind with his A N O N Y M O U S series. Maybe you've seen the giant alien head currently center stage in Madison Square Park? Yea same guy... There's a smaller version in the gallery for a mere $400,000 along with these incredible mixed media (acrylic, enamel, ink, etc.) photographic artworks. I'm 50 G's short of having one of these beauts lining the entrance of my apartment. Damn..

After a long hard day sometimes the best new thing to try is a cocktail...

As an artist and photo retoucher my hands are my life, so when one of my trusted fingers started hurting on a daily basis I knew I needed an expert's examination immediately. Little did I know that 3 x-rays and 1 MRI later he'd be shoving a thick needle filled with mystery fluid into my knuckle. Definitely an unpleasant first, but I'm glad to hopefully be on the road to recovery.

Meandering through Little Italy in 4 in. heels after an intense, dizzying, China Town, Shiatsu massage looks a little like this.

There's nothing like walking 60 blocks to get a baby dash of a feel of what NYC's urban landscape has to offer. A lot of firsts this Saturday including a tourist friendly wedding at St. Patrick's, a pee break at the Plaza, a dash through Central Park's Bethesda Fountain followed by bloody mary's at the Loeb Boathouse, and an up-close look at China's leading (and currently detained) artist, Ai Weiwei's Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads.

River rocks? No. Hush puppies? No. Weird calamari? No. Fried Oreos? Yes yes yes thank you.

I'm really feeling Gina Ruggeri's work that's currently on display at the Nancy Margolis Gallery. Her acrylic on mylar cut-out technique is definitely on my radar for future project inspiration. The perfectly flush pieces look like they were painted right on the wall and succeed in provoking thoughts of form, dimension, material, and decomposition in the viewer. Well done

I found the perfect perfect pastime for lazy movie evenings on Fidgety hands + pliers + copper wire = LoveLy heart shaped paperclips! YES!

Today I stopped by the Mitchell-Innes & Nash gallery in Chelsea to check out the 50 year old works of Kenneth Noland, one of the best-known American Color field painters.

Even with an additional Milk Bone offering, Petey seemed to not enjoy or appreciate the new collar I made for him.
