Tom Waits Project and other news

Time I & II
12 x 12 inches, acrylic on canvas, framed
Here are the first two pieces from the T.Waits project based around the song "Time" from Rain dogs, I've been reading and sketching Tom Waits lyrics for a couple of hours every day now and have gotten things started. When going through the songs I first plotted key words and images that reoccured in his work, trying to find a good starting point. the dominant words being, "Sleep", "Memory" and "Dream"and "Time" so I think if people start to float around in the air in the work ala Chagall that's just fine.
SHOW STUFF These two pieces are hanging at the Wilson 96 (615 College Str. across from the Royal Cinema) until the end of January. This is the final week for the "Unframed and On Sale" show at Mitzi's Sister, that work comes down on the 17th of January, you can see what's there if you scroll down a bit.
UPCOMING I will be showing work at the Cameron House for the month of February, there was a cancellation and yes, I did ask a couple of other artists if they were interested but both weren't quite prepared. I am going to move some work from the Press Club, reframe some of the work from Mitzi's and the Wilson 96 and also add about eight new pieces, so it should be a pretty cool looking room.

Awesome. I can't wait to see more of your Tom Waits project work.

As a writer inspired by Tom Waits lyrics I'm excited to see the paintings.
