Painting: Evenin'

Oil on Canvas, 16"x12"
March 2012

This small naive painting took me four months to finish... 

It's painted on a canvas board that I bought at a small second hand store in Berkeley. I usually feel cruel and narcissistic to paint over somebody's creative attempts. So, in this piece, the 'window' exposes the anonymous under-painting.

Even their broom closet probably has a window.

Cuban Rides

It was remarkable how fast one grows accustomed to the thousands of antiquated cars humming around the country. In Havana, the local taxi system consists of collectable cars that drive general routes, pulling over for anybody holding out a hand. Squeezing in seven people listening to music that sounds like American Graffiti and congo drums had a baby, you just hand them over 1 CUC when reaching your destination.

Cheap and effective, not to mention the undeniable cool factor.

Santiago Ron

Evidence of rum and revolution, down an alleyway in Santiago.
