Captain Chris Sets Sail



Captain Chris Oil on Canvas 16" x 12"

You may have seen earlier versions of this painting from previous posts. It is a portrait I have been working on of a very creative young man that lives down the street from me. He adapted a video game called "Escape from Monkey Island" into a play. He wrote the script, directed and starred in a performace put on at the high school up the street. It was quite wonderful.

His name is Chris Heady and he keeps a blog as well. You can find him here:

He's departing for college next week. This painting is his graduation gift, so I thought I better finish it so it has time to dry before he leaves. You have to have something to hang on your dorm room wall, right?

I know he will do well.

Hello Chris, this is NIff from inkfinger. I DID go to ringling and I graduated in 2001. Cober taught there a few years before he died...and if you know who Joe Theil is, you know who Cober was. He was best friends with that man.
anyway, yeah...don't know what else to say, but i look forward to checking out your blog.

Chuck, you are so generous with your talent--I know you're giving the red peppers one to a relative and that you actually planned it as a gift, as you did this one. You DO know my birthday is in January, right? ;D. Seriously, this is a very handsome painting and a gift he'll treasure for the rest of his life.

Chuck, I'd wondered what had become of Captain Chris! This is a great gift.

Chuck, you asked about word verification in Blogger. It is simple to set up:
Log in and select your blog from the Dashboard screen.
Select the Settings tab.
In Settings, select the Comments tab.
You will see a check-box to allow you to add word verification.
Once completed, you will have to republish for the changes to take place.
While the republishing is going on, you call your local voodoo witch doctor and pay $10 for a curse-charm to cause all spammers to have hemorrhoids and carpal tunnel sydrome to keep them out of their chairs and off the computer!

Thanks for the tip Linda. Hech, I'll give the guy $20 if it works!
