The Artistic Biker Does Summer Heat

This week on The Artistic Biker Live! it’s 103F!!! It’s freakin’ hot in Oklahoma.  I painted a background of various summer activities overshadowed by an almost exploding thermometer.  Also, Deina (@theamplegoddess) and her lovely family joined us in studio.  FUN TIMES!

Art Journal Spider Webs

Spider Web screen capture

This week on The Artistic Biker Live! Taking a cue from Emil “Rocky” Fiore (http://www.whirledwidewebs.com), I decided to try and capture a spider web intact in my journal. I took my journal and my spray paints, my camera and my friend out to the bridge behind the studio and caught two abandoned spider webs for my background.  Then I painted some spidery goodness while eating ice cream from the ice cream man who happened by.  It was a very fun night!

Art Journal Tornadoes & Ruby Biker Boots

Screen capture from ustream

This week on The Artistic Biker Live! I did a page dedicated to the recent tornadoes that have been ripping across the U.S.  Normally, I would just say ripping across the southwest, but with the recent ones in New York, Maine, and Massachusetts, it’s the whole danged country getting ripped.  If you or your loved ones have been affected by the recent storms, please know that all of us have you in our hearts, minds, and prayers.  You can see the sepia toned gray scale country house and all of the colors on the other side of the rainbow, right before I paint a great big pair of ruby studded biker boots and declare there’s no place like home.
