The Yost Family vs. Creepy Babies
My old pal/ex-bandmate Marty Key works at a record store and snapped up this gem for me. I love not only the stylishness of the Yost ladies, but the clumsiness of the graphic design. Can't wait to get my turntable unpacked to give it a listen. It appears to be some down-home gospel music from the song titles and photo of "Evangelist Jack Yost" on the back cover.
In other news, I've finished my second painting in the "creepy baby" series. I don't mean to imply that either my neice or my good friend Matt's baby are in themselves creepy. It's just that baby portraits ALWAYS look a bit disturbing to me. That's my own cross to bear, I suppose.
Now I've been commissioned to paint three more kids' portraits. Since they're not offspring of my friend or family, I hope they don't come out creepy as well! I much prefer painting animals, to tell the truth.
