Artistic license.

A Painting a Day. Great blog with a great idea from Duane Keiser. Except everything seems to sell out instantly!  For this blog I’m going to try to make a painting each day (starting 12/10/2004.) Most of the paintings on this blog will be postcard-sized oil sketches (I call them Postcard Paintings.) I paint them on site, using a modified cigar box as an easel.

Cap’n Nemo.

Nemo Gould likes robots. In particular it seems that he enjoys making sculptures and masks which reflect the genre. And who are we to argue, eh? Prices on application.  Oh, and did we mention that a lot of them move too?
