When I'm supposed to be painting, but don't feel like it, I make random things. Here's what I created using corks collected from Fun+Art+Wine events:
I've been busy creating new paintings for my art show Saturday, September 24th. A percentage of show sales will be donated to support BUILD Metro DC where I volunteer as a mentor. I hope you'll join me on the 24th!
Here are the details:

I went to the Martin Luther King Memorial twice today, in the morning with my mother and in the evening with my father. It was a beautiful and perfect day, even with the earthquake craziness.
Here are a few selected sketches. Soon, I'll post sketches along side finished pieces.

"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"
- Audrey Hepburn
"Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don't know what your rights are or who the person is you're talking to. Then on the way out, slam the door."
- Jack Handy, Deep Thoughts
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
- Calvin Coolidge
"Now is the time to live your ideal life."
- Phil Cousineau
"Be open to receiving the good that comes to you each day."
- Doreen Virtue
