hangin' at Benji's.....







You know my buddy Benji. Benji is a famous painter: landscapes, nudes, abstracts and more. Plus he has done some sculpture and ceramics and plans to do more, and I said I would lend a hand with the kiln setup.
It took about 3 minutes or less :)
Then we had to drink espresso and look at art and gossip about YOU. He lives in a huge loft in a former barn-chicken coop, which also has a blacksmith forge, furniture maker, recording studio and I don't know what all else, with at least 6-12 other artists and muscians, and its pretty darn cool out there. Its the other end of the county and was snowing LIKE CRAZY there. Not so much here at my house.
You can see Benji's little NINJA CAT Scotia the mouser....

I knew my ears were burning- but I figure if you are talking about me you are giving someone else a rest!
Happy Hoildays and look at that snow!

Stacey B said...

Hmmm, I think I'd let Benji paint me in the nude. Hee hee, did I just type that out loud?

Becky Jo said...

My right ear was kinda burn-ey earlier. Were you talking about ME???

P.S. YAY snow!

P.S.S. That is a lovely beard, Ben. It's very wintery of you. :)

Ben's landscapes are soo serene. I love them.

What a good friend you are helping with the set up.

I hope you were gossiping about me. As I've said before, I hate not being talked about.
