Muddy Colors post - The Power of Art

the Rothko room at Tate Modern
Posted a new article up on the Muddy Colors blog - The Power of Art.
A bit about Mark Rothko, Simon Schama's The Power of Art, and contemplation inspired by feeling crammed, cluttered, and tired. Ha.
If you get a chance, have a read and let me know your thoughts.
Here's the link:

Sirens, oil on board, 22x28"
This is one of my paintings that I showed at IlluxCon.  Sirens, oil on board, 22x28".
I worked on it up until the day I shipped it to the show, which always requires extra special care in the packing to ship, but it made it there safely and all was okay.
Also, it sold there too.  woot!
I sold two others, which I'll post soon as well.
