New Whitehead in Warsaw

On Thursday October 15th, 2015 little Olek (short for Aleksander) was born. He is my second child/son and he and mom are doing very well. Here is a picture from the hospital just before they let everyone go home.

Details: Aleksander Miles Whitehead; 3.8kg and 55cm long; 8.5lbs and about 21 inches.

Justyna will be off work for most of a year and I’ll get back to painting once we fall into our new schedule.

An auto visionary :)

Some 20 years ago I was freshly out of high school and needing to vent some creativity. I wasn’t painting canvas yet, but did have quite a bit of fun decorating cars that my brother and I owned at various times. Turns out we were having too much fun and the neighbors were getting a tad perturbed. On top of that the police department where I lived was pulling me and anyone who drove the car over on site. After the police towed one of the cars we had enough and called the news. They had to give the car back after deciding it was roadworthy. Good times.

Here is a news bit that is hosted on youtube:

And here are the only other pictures I have of that impala and escort.

That is white latex on the escort there. I was still working through my white phase. I wrecked the car a number of times; I think in the 50s range. Those poles at gas stations always got in the way. Once I got lodged up against the wall in a Wendys drive-thru too – that was particularly embarrassing.
