|I'll Fight ya for FREE.

Several weeks ago my grandmother Kate Glinski passed after a long fight for a great life. She pulled through in one of her darkest moments after news of the Green Bay Packers getting to the playoffs, and was determined to see them win. She even held on long enough for me to come home for the Holland House show, and I was lucky enough to say goodbye to her. It was a heartbreaking moment, but it was a relief to know that now she's resting with her husband, my grandpa, Ed Glinski.
This piece was one I started the night I received the call about her passing, and finished after the funeral.
I unfortunately did not have the chance to go home and pay my respects... life deals those cards at times, but it's been getting better.
On the plus side, I am back at work after spring break's relaxation and adventure.
We took an amazing road trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, the final home of animator Chuck Jones, and current home to loads of beautiful art and inspiration. We were lucky enough to stumble upon some amazing galleries, including that of our aforementioned animation master. It was a religious experience, to say the least.
(yes I am a nerd for snapping this one... I couldn't HELP myself... )
The rest of the break was spent busting my butt on the mural project up at Lookout Mountain. ONE more finished room, and a bit more hallway has been attacked by my mad brushes.
This marks ONE MORE finished room!
Though I THOUGHT I was a bit ahead of schedule, the deadline for the completion of the mural has been pushed forward to the end of July. YIKES!
I can do this, though. Ten hours of work in one sitting is no sweat, and I've got a lot of energy left. It'll be an awesome experience to put to rest a project that has already been three years in the making. I've been working on it for a year already.
And as I work hard, I also play hard. This weekend I celebrated with Kelly the Colorado Rockies opening day and went to the game the next day. I think I finally understand baseball. It takes a serious ninja to play some ball, and this is a sport of precision.
JAMMING OUT SO HARD TO TEMPER TRAP RIGHT NOW THAT IT'S UNSAFE FOR THE EARS.
Life is flipping GOOD.
