Typical Saturday

By | Artist life, Music, Pottery | No Comments

Typical Saturday:  Morning teaching pottery at St. John’s College, then in the late afternoon going over to 49 West Cafe and Wine Bar to play music.  My usual sets include St. James Infirmary, Creole Belle, Hesitation Blues, TB Blues and such.  First set runs an hour and includes about 15 songs, usually.  Second set is 45 minutes and has a fewer number… I often add one or two new songs each week.  Tomorrow I’m hoping to debut a performance of Will The Circle Be Unbroken.


More Winter Snow

Portents of spring were premature.  Groundhog day just has a way of getting you thinking about spring, so that any little indication gets interpreted as “The Beginning.”  I won’t be fooled again.  I know now that warm weather, balmy breezes and inviting water are just illusions created in Hollywood to fool the weak.  These are last weeks reality. Last night’s was more of the same. More predicted for early next week.

The Maryland House of Delegates along with Maryland Federation of Art put on a nice show of Maryland Artists at the Lowe House Office Building.  The reception was tonight Feb 2. 2015 and I had a little trouble getting in because I had a tiny little pocket knife in my pocket and the building is protected by metal detectors and armed guards.  After I worked that out I made it in to the show and enjoyed a fine display of varied work as well as some really first rate snacks

Shown here are two watercolors from my collection.  A third which I submitted didn’t make it into the show, either because there was just enough room in the exhibition for a limited number of works, which is likely the case; or perhaps because the painting was of an undraped female form (upper torso from the rear).  There were no nudes in the show.  Here it is…the one that didn’t make it…for whatever reason:
