Good Day, Sunshine

DaGoddess @ 17:53

My dad is happy…he’s not home, but he’s happy. He’s not in any pain and he’s not feeling ill, so he’s happy. That makes me happy.

My friend, Greg, is done with law school and enjoying the next couple of weeks until the Bar Review starts. I’m proud of him. He worked awfully hard to get to where he is. Good job, Greg!

My surgical consult is scheduled. It’s not as soon as I’d like, but it’s scheduled. That works for me.

I made an incredible trade today. I gave a few photos of Honeyboy Edwards to a brilliant local artist – Brian Banash – and in return, he gave me one of his incredible John Lee Hooker prints.

Honeyboy Edwards
I first became aware of Brian’s work through the Blues Lovers United of San Diego – of which I’m a member. His artwork graces the back of our t-shirts, the organization website, and many other things. He’s not only very talented, he’s a damn nice guy.

To be quite honest, I was surprised that he gave me this print. Surprised and very honored. That photo (click the link at JLH up there) doesn’t do justice to the piece…it’s simply amazing.

I’ve seen several of his paintings and each one has its own special feel to it. His early work is interesting, but his most recent creations shine. Again, all have “feeling”, but the new stuff comes from a deeper level. It’ll be a while before he begins on a new painting. Brian has an exhibition coming up and he needs to finish work for that. Once the show gets underway…well, hopefully Honeyboy will be the first one to make it to canvas.

Have a good weekend everyone!

  4. Hey hon, the links and the picture don’t work for me. :-( And damn, you get hit as hard as I do with the spam BS.

  5. The links didn’t work for me, either. That’s cool about your trade, though! Awful spammers…

  6. Thanks Joanie! And it was fun talking to you during the White Sox win on Friday!

    Feels weird to be able to do things guilt-free for a while…well, until next Thursday, that is.

  7. For some reason, the popup pic doesn’t work after x number of days, unless you’re on the individual entry (after making a comment.) Don’t know why that is.
