Painters I like- Stephen Coyle

Just look at these paintings. Beautiful.

Glassy-eyed staring at awards.

Heather's film won the Silver Award in the Chicago Filmmakers category.

Winners of the cutest filmmakers award.

Chris Jordan

This photographer is doing amazing work.

From his website:

These photographs of albatross chicks were made just a few weeks ago on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world's most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.

Tyler's Mom's fashion show

Tyler's fancy mom had a fashion show at a fancy club. It was cute and loud. She looked great. Her assistants looked great.

Girls On the Wall Premiere

It was so much fun hanging out with Heather during the premiere of her film at the Chicago International Film Fest. Best vacation ever! I hope Girls On the Wall wins an award.
