while my original abstract paintings from this series (the buck stops here) have a more minimal feel/look than other styles i work in, the paintings from this series actually go through several stages of 'completed paintings' before i reach the final work i am satisfied with. the buck stops here is about layering and removal, layering and removal.. layering and removal until getting to the point of 'enough is enough' (hmmmmm perhaps a title for a future work in this series).
Sadly Mistaken - 24" x 48" x 1.5" oil, acrylic, graphite on canvas

reality fix- okay so my favorite reality show BB9 is coming to an end. i LOOOOOVED joshua, (also chelsia & sharon) - who are now all evicted. didn't like sheila but wanted to see her out last either ryan or adam. feeling bad to know ryan will soon be out to see that his girlfriend he loves was stabbing him in the back and calling him a racist in front of millions (poor guy - he's too nice for her). don't really care who wins between the two boys.. don't know if i will watch the end (yeah right!!! -- i always say that and always tune in). hope sharon wins that fan favorite thing --- LOOOOOOOOOOVED that they had a girl in the house who didn't feel the constant need to put on make up 24 hours a day and have her boobies hanging out.. she just didn't give a shit - loved her attitude! --- couldn't really get into survivor this year, and now that hottie ozzie is gone... also don't really care who wins. hell's kitchen (LOVE GORDON) - but don't like any of the chefs this year - worst year yet imho. --- TILA's back!!!!!!!!! and i was pissed she didn't pick dani -- and i am so NOT surprised she is back - and being a huge dani fan i was like.. there is so no way i am watching her again --- yet found a re-run yesterday afternoon from the first show and yeah i caved and watched it.. and will probably tune in now every week lol! -- let's see... the hills -- omg yes my husband and i are far TOO OLD TO BE WATCHING THIS SHOW --- yet i am continually tuning in --- and is it just me or is heidi the only person on the face of the earth that can get plastic surgery and look worse? (sorry LC fan here - she has the best hair ever). -- ok guess that's it -- could it be i am getting tired of reality t.v.????????? --- WHEN IS 24 COMING BACK ON?????
