The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian

While I've been working on my new batch of paintings for Art-o-mat, I've enjoyed a little light reading in The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian, a Bernie Rhodenbarr mystery.  This was a serendipitous library find, and I really enjoyed the parts in which the main character and his friend discussed how best to reproduce the exact shades of colors Mondrian used in his work.

If you enjoy art and are looking for some "escape literature" this summer, pick up this entertaining book at your local library.  The author is Lawrence Block.

Illustration Friday: Tattoo

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
