Josh returns from Japan

July 26, 2010

Josh returns from his summer tour of Japan, and I just had to share this photo of life in the fast lane relaxing on a river boat. 

Josh, is here on the East river enjoying the city and the sailboats. He sent me the photo to rub it in a little. 

Josh, back home in NYC and enjoying a relaxing day on the East River.


Wildlife In The Backyard This Weekend

July 12, 2010

A couple of quick shots I took when a few visitors came by. I believe one of them is from the Fat Rabbit Grill in Arab. 

I only had about 5 seconds to get this shot off before he was gone.


This guy was on a mission!

Amazing Similarties!

July 10, 2010

An artists visited my blog about a month ago and we have become internet friends. She is Laurie Justus Pace and she does amazing work. 

Visit her website some time at: 

While review some of her equine paintings I did a double take because i saw one painting that look very familiar. 

The painting below (which I’m sorry I do not have the name)  looks strikingly similar to one I did a few years ago called, “War Pony”. 

The composition and the choice of colors looked as though they came from the same mixing container. 

Laurie said, “what can I say, but our souls cross beat?”. Guess they did. 

BTW, Laurie and her husband live in Dallas, Texas. Visit here web site. She has many impressive paintings!

Old Friends Hang Several Paintings at The Fat Rabbit Grill

July 8, 2010

Tom and Anya Chapman have opened a new restaraunt in Arab called the Fat Rabbit Grill.  An interesting menu with a lot of Tom’s traditional favorites but he has added a few new items.   They are open for lunch during the week and serve dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
It has been a big sucess … so congratulations! 

I recommend the 20 minute trip to Arab from Huntsville is well worth the easy drive.  I promise the dinner will be wonderful! 

I have a few paintings decorating the restaraunt.

"The Bear" 18"X18" acrylic welcomes you to the Fat Rabbit Grill in Arab.

Tom and Anya look forward to your visit to the Fat Rabbit Grill
