July Update

Dear Readers:

Ugh! Not a lot to report. I've been working on a private commission, which is not something I usually do. I thought I'd give it a try, seeing as there's nothing like breaking one's own rules every now and then to keep things flexible.
Anyway, it's been a better month for thinking about painting than painting about painting. What has been done is simplistic. What I haven't done is enormous. At this point, I feel like a willful alien to conception and execution.

Another update shortly.

America's Next Top Capstone

Everyone seems to hate that "awful unblinking eye" (to quote Gore Vidal) atop the pyramid of lore on the American Dollar Bill. Yet, I never hear of alternate visual proposals. Something with charm and novelty might be of interest - maybe a design that would have to be changed yearly.

How would you make it over?
