I went to North Dakota this week with the day job. With all the flooding in Oklahoma, I felt like I was one of the snakes trying to find higher ground. Thought I’d journal a bit about it.

The Easels

What’s On Your Easel? What have you been doing with yourself? I sincerely want to know what you are currently drawing, painting, sculpting, dancing, writing, singing, choreographing, photogging, or otherwise artistically making love to! Send an email to Blade@artisticbiker.com with the subject line “Easel” and we’ll use your works to inspire other to get up and do something creative because that’s what this is really all about.

Week before last I didn’t have the artwork with me so I could post it. Then last week I had intereweb troubles in Southern Canada (North Dakota). So we have a few extra submissions for this newsletter.

I’ve spent some time in Louisiana this week and sat on a cool patio in a soft rain while drinking ice cold beer and eating hot crawfish. PURE BLISS! Thought I’d paint about it in my journal a bit. The Sexy, Red-Headed Darcy named our crustacean Steve

The Longy: Can’t get enough of watching paint dry with us? Me neither. Here is the 90 minute LONGY.  https://youtu.be/NgnWN5_w2TQ

The Quiche: It’s pronounced “Quickie”. If you would like to see the process at high speed with me and the family singing a song along with it, then the 3 minute Quiche is for you. https://youtu.be/RyrbM_FewKo

The Easels: Each week my fabulously talented friends send in photos and videos of their works for me to share with you. Hopefully, it inspires EVERYONE to create something. This week we have Kelly Byrne, The Sexy, Red-Headed Darcy, Pamela French, Jamie Lynne and Jay the Viking.  Click Here to watch What’s On Your Easel! https://youtu.be/qukLE4y5oas

The Easels

Speaking of the easels, I up and left town with laptop in hand to edit this post and get it out for the website and the newsletter, but failed to bring any of the cool easel photos with me. They are all on the desktop that we usually broadcast from. I don’t want you to miss them, so expect a supplement newsletter in the very near future.

Once a year I get to go back to my old Alma Mater and inspire young minds with art demos. Ultimately, the goal is to this full time with all of the rural schools within 200 miles. I did a speed painting demo for them this time and it was really fun.  – Captured Live on Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-artistic-biker

My wife and daughter couldn’t get home to us because of tornados and storms. I’m not sure if she’s was more worried about us in the storms or the damage we would do to the house while left alone. If you ever had a husband and kids, or if you’ve ever had a new pet trapped in the house, you know this fear. – Captured Live on Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-artistic-biker
