I love talking with my Dad. Now, don't get me wrong. I love talking with my Mom too, absolutely, but I bring this up because my Dad is also an artist. One hell of a good one too, I might add, although you'd never know it because he doesn't show his stuff anywhere, to anyone, except family. But that's a story for another posting some other time. So I was talking with my Dad today when we got on the subject of this blog of mine. Dad reminded me of how little children paint, with no reference to things like composition, perspective, nothing, it's just very free-flowing, and loose. My Dad is very loose when he sketches, and so, I'm taking a page from his book today. A masterpiece? Hardly, but I think I moved into the direction of freeing up my stuff. This piece seems to me to be a little more open and airy. But what do I know? it's not my job to judge the shit, just to keep on doing it. Right Dad?

Hi Jeff! I love your work. Who knew that someone that started out in "Captain Crunch and the Funky Bunch" had so much talent? Well, besides me, your family, all of your friends and anyone that's ever met you. I'm hopeful that one day I'll have a Jeff Bowser original of my own.

Well done Jeff. I'm so happy for you. Also, congrats on your upcoming wedding! - Mary

Hey Jeff!

I am amazed at how you can diversify the colors and strokes in your work. Bet this experiment of daily painting will bring new ideas and experiences! You are very talented! Keep up the amazing work!
