Hawaiian Sunset • Sounds of Arthur Lyman • 1959.

The cover really captures the vibe of music, dreamy and balmy. Pairs well with a hammock, big hat & icy rum cocktail.

🍾 Happy Hour!


We made it to Happy Hour! “I’m Waiting For My Man” ~this week’s song-based cocktail.  Woodrow pairs it well with a VU vinyl.

Ingredients? Tequila? Moonshine? What liquor offers a heroin fog?

My cocktail artwork is gouache & pencil on paper.

And Woodrow is enjoying the latest in mini hifi phonics.

 Novel Audioscapes


What if books (not movies of books) had their own soundtracks? A sort of auditory reading companion. It would create even more of an immersible dream world when reading…

And so my book themed album cover painting series was born today.

I’m also working on concept track names and record label design. If you have any track name suggestions please leave me a comment.

Acrylic on canvas, 12″x12″
