"When the gates open Me, Poe and Me rush in, you got that?"

Some non-representational paintings that I did last year. They are acrylic on canvas, and I've learned that canvas doesn't scan particularly well.

"I don't even want to take a wiz on this thing. I used to dream about taking a wiz on this thing!"

some life drawings of myself through a mirror.

they're just sketches, some relatively quick studies, probably no more then 20 minutes each.

the one above has giant eyes. watch out or they'll consume your soul!

and now for the one from last year
one year's difference. quite an improvement I think, but let me know what you think.

Bonzai about Bonsai!

Hello people. so I got a Bonsai Tree today. Hooray! His name is not Gregory, but until I remember the actual name I chose that will do. I think it's a pine.

the Box said that he was already two years old. craziness!

when I first got him he was in one of those little containers that you usually get plants in but I transplanted him to his current home. I hope he takes root properly. his original soil was very dry and I'm a little worried that he might not take. only time will tell though I guess.

I'm very new to Bonsai training, and gardening in general so if anybody who reads has any hints, or links to helpful sites it'd be great.
