Yesterday I went over to Tim’s to tell him something, and he asked if I wanted to see the painting he’s working on. I’ve been very good about this. I’ve wanted to see it, and I DO have a key to his apartment, but I was waiting to be asked, because that’s the right thing to do.

Recently, I wrote about the many talents of my writing partner, Timothy J. Lambert, and people began asking to see some of his work. Thanks to some proud owners and a genius webmaster, you can now see photographs of some of his paintings here.
Today I read Greg Herren’s Bourbon Street Blues, our introduction to Scotty Bradley, dancer turned personal trainer turned detective. I’d read the second in the series, Jackson Square Jazz quite a while back, and it was fun to see how it began. Scotty lives life on his own terms, a quality I always appreciate, and his parents crack me up. It was a little disquieting to read about the levees and Scotty’s visions of New Orleans under water, since the book came out in 2003.
I looked again for the cover of Greg’s next Scotty novel, Mardi Gras Mambo, to put it here, but it’s still not floating around the Internet. However, I did find this painting by the same title:
Sarah Griffith is a Southeastern artist (Baton Rouge), and I find many of her paintings quite intriguing.
I love making unexpected discoveries.
My friend and writing partner, Timothy J.

But wait. That’s not all.

….and THREE FORTUNES, a Rothko painting is featured predominantly in our novel. I have a wonderful book full of Rothko’s art that Tom gave me one Christmas, and he has asked which of Mark Rothko’s paintings belongs to the fictitious Godbee family. I have my preferences, but I think every reader should let it be whichever painting he or she imagines.

…about the wall of “Blue Dog” as seen in one of Tim’s posts. Tiffany, the “Blue Dog,” has a way of bringing people together. =) Here’s some information on the artist, George Rodrigue. It’s NEVER a good idea to ask about anything in my house unless you want a long answer, heh heh.
