more sketchbook nonsense

This is the original painting from my sketch book that I posted to the Revenge of Mary Blair site that I was a member of. This is the pic before I Photoshopped Mrs. Blair's head and the bottle of gin into it, that caused me and my friend Uffler Mustek so much trouble! I don't know if any one remembers the brew hah ha that resulted from our loving (seriously) little tribute site, but I didn't know sarcasm was so intolerable in America these days. Mary Blair's son even weighed in and he was the one that convinced us to shut down the site.In fact I think he was the only one that really raised a stink! Still I guess It's better to just shut up than pay tribute to some one you revere, if you aren't going to revere them with religiously fervent and intensly earnest accolades. I love the new America! This is actually a painting of my wonderful wife.


Here's some random sketch book pages...
