OCD Dress Up - wear one today!

How about this blue suit as the official uniform for obsessive compulsive disorder sufferers? The ones who are phobic about germs anyway.

Could help ease their pain, no?

Really though if it were socialably acceptable to walk around in one of these - without freaking other people out - then maybe OCD(ers) would have more social freedom.

I've been toying and adding the third dimension to several of my paintings through the use of soap dispensers, dish soap nipple caps and rubber gloves.

I'd like to get my hands on one of these suits too - hmmmm...

More Fine Art panels to paint on - Please!

My Fine Art substrates don't make themselves... they take time, a craftsmanship skill-set and a table saw - at least.

I prefer painting on wood panels, so NO new panels = NO new paintings. I'm excited to say I just got a new table saw. Now I can churn out some more panels; more paintings; series three (3).

The "major" cuts to the plywood (panels) will be done at the supplier (i.e. Home Depot or Lowes), because I don't currently paint on full 4'x8' plywood (too big, doesn't feel right) One cut is all it takes.

I get three substrates out of a single sheet of 4'x8' plywood, hence the typical size of my pieces is usually 32" x 48"

To read more about my fine art panel making process, check back, post coming soon.
