Denver, CO -- July 31, 2007

Reading The Young Men of Paris, by Stephen Longstreet. It's about the artist, Amedeo Modigliani, who was a contemporary of Picasso. There are pieces of Modigliani's in the Denver art museum right now.

He is an artist himself and is working on a mural for Rio Grande, a restaurant in the LoDo (Lower Downtwon) neighborhood and also another one in Pueblo, a city in CO.

His favorite book--The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran. It makes him feel inspired; he gets a general optimistic feeling from it.

What is his artwork about? The nature of humanity, how we feel as people, little things everyone does everyday, that makes us seem more noble and alive, just simply being is a great thing.

He has just finished the 7th Harry Potter and Angels and Demons, by Dan Brown.

What he likes about Denver? The art scene. It’s a great mix of culture. You don’t need to go to a certain coast. Names to watch? Chuck Parsons, the sculptor and Louis Fenera, a painter.
