Three new images this weekend, grandma, Will Oldham

A minor update... two new drawings plus a new painting will be posted sometime this weekend — here and on the main art site. in the dead of winter i often make work that is minimal and quiet, catalyzed by music or poetry about hard midwestern winters, loss, and life/death. it's at this time that i usually listen to stripped down music by masters such as Nick Drake, Nick Cave, or by the gentleman whose music is below. here's "careless love" by Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham, aka palace Brothers, aka Palace Music). i found this user video version on youtube, enjoyed thoroughly, and wanted to share.

i say sorry
i say bye bye
i say miss you
i say cry cry

it seems the grandmother that partially raised me is now in her final years of life, and the body of drawings i will be posting are all titled after her first name.
