Los Angeles

Holding still.

That one summer I made all those hawk drawings.
 
Hiding from the drought with a glass of wine and a veil of feathers over her head.
 
She had a halo like a red-tailed hawk.
 
It could make me stop in midsentence.

California dreams of painting hawks for the stars.

A few nights ago I had a dream Brad Pitt’s agent  hired me to fill a hallway of his (Brad’s) mansion with scientifically accurate hawk paintings. while I worked there has a huge party going on. Jennifer Aniston and John Goodman asked me to do the same for their houses. I remember how the drawings look quite well. Rare for me, details from dreams fade fast from my memory. So I’m going to try and paint one like I did asleep.  I got some plywood from the hardware store. It has some pretty nice grain on one side. I’m going to leave as much bare wood grain as possible. Working in acrylics, pencil work laid out this evening. It all ready looks like one from the dream.
Oh yeah, Alec Baldwin was there at the party too I think.
