A Barnaby Ruhe painting marathon in Seattle

We went to a really fun painting marathon/party tonight at Margaret and Walter Suman's.  NYC artist/professor Barnaby Ruhe was painting--here is a not so good Blackberry shot of the painting he did of me and Keelin.  Barnaby is a former world boomerang champion, a practising shaman, painter, and professor of art at NYC.  You can read his artist biography here.  This is a fuzzy BlackBerry snapshot of the painting he did of me and Keelin.  I'll upload a better one once the painting is dry and we can bring it home.

It was fascinating to watch (and listen to) him paint.  He paints like McCoy Tyner or Jimmy Smith play--lots of vocal whooshes, blips, pops, and oohs.
