Cup O Joe

Cup O' Joe 6" x 6" oil on masonite

Coffee's the best, it keeps me warm in my cold apartment. I found out that 'a cup of joe' was named after Josephus Daniels who was the Secretary of the Navy during WWI. He was known for making changes on the base by adding more chaplains and also making alcohol less available, which made coffee the strongest drink. Coffee became affectionately known as a 'Cup O' Joe.'

Enlightenment 6" x 6" oil on masonite 

I finally got to paint a Buddha statue! I saw someone else on DPW do it and I got inspired. Gold is so hard to nail down, from one angle it's green and from another it's orange.

Alexa Echo Dot

Alexa Echo Dot 6" x 6" oil on masonite

This is the new amazon gadget, the Echo Dot. I bet I'm the first person to paint it. The personality that you talk to is Alexa, I mainly use it to listen to my Pandora station but it's good for jokes, weather, timer for cooking, etc.

Morning Coffee

I have been starting to scratch into my paintings with the end of the brush, mainly to redraw but also to see the under-painting beneath.
