Aquatic Park

Hung out with a couple friends today to do some painting at the Aquatic Park in Berkeley. I haven't painted on canvas in nearly a year, but these oil primed linen boards from Utrecht have convinced me to do it more often. I was also pleasantly surprised the weather brightened up halfway into my session, rather than the usual other way around.

I truly appreciate it.

thanks, i think? sorry, i'm distracted by the scariness of your name along with the semi-obscure comment.

This is really stunning! I followed you over from Tor.com and I find your work amazing and inspiring. I love your range and diversity. Every image is beautiful. Can I add you to my blog roll? I'm lost on this etiquette...

Hey Eric,
I'd be honored. :)

Oh, and for some reason I thought I'd seen you comment here before, because your name seemed so familiar, but then I realized it was because I previously saw your work from the Totoro Forest Project and loved it.

Congratulations on your pending fatherhood, by the way!

Dude,
your tenacity and sheer mass of painting exercise knocks me out and lights a fire under my ass. That, and I love that you painted my old burger stand in Oakland. And tell Prothero that Rusty, 'the old SI bartender,' says hi. I didn't realize she was out west.
