CROPPED CACTUS 1 MED RESWe’ve been living in Arizona for the last 10 or so months and I’ve finally gotten around to painting some of the local flora and fauna. Above is my watercolor entitled HOMESTEAD CACTUS. While the cactaceae (Eh, how’s that? Semi-Latin.) is about 30 feet tall or so, the painting itself is roughly 16″ X 26″, big enough for me. More flora and fauna, as well as babies, puppies, seashells and toasters at my CURIOUS PAINTINGS website.

Blinded by an almost-fatal combination of caffeine and bad taste, I added 28 seconds of colored pen hari kari (do you realize you don’t need to be accompanied by an adult, or show two forms of identification, to buy Pentels in Arizona? Crazy again!) to my ARIZONA CRAZYSALAD LONG VERSION video. It’s the Wild West down here!VIOLET FLOWER 130001

I’ve most recently become entranced with a newish software app that allows me to, amongst other things, animate my watercolor paintings. WHAT A GREAT IDEA, ANIMATED WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS!!! Who couldn’t use a painting that moves? “GENIUS!” I exclaim to myself, being sure to keep my voice down because the other thing this app does is enable me to know, even when she’s in another room, when my long-suffering wife is rolling her eyes into the back of her head and sighing that l-ooooooong sigh.  Every time the G-word is used in our house, admittedly just frequently enough to provoke a saint to extreme violence, it’s quietly countered with the Einstein quote “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” Not sure what the point is there but genius knows there’s a market for watercolors that jump about. And to that point, here’s the video of my new watercolor paintings, Arizona Desert Flower Crazy Salad.

More watercolor paintings, mostly static, family and pet portraits, cartoons and other oddities at my website collection of CURIOUS PAINTINGS.

Lastly, any and all of my art can be purchased in a variety of forms – mugs, t-shirts, cellphone cases, mousepads, postage stamps,  even skateboards – through my online store Zazzle.com/briancody.
