One of my favorite artists, Jerome Tiger, had his child spill some paint on a commission piece he was working on. He ended up working with it and painted a small dog where the blob landed. After the patron received the painting he phoned him up to ask him how he knew his favorite dog recently died. After all of that coincidence the throw away dog blob made the painting for that man (which proved to Tiger how nuts his fans were, but that is neither here nor there).

When I was on a road trip through Oklahoma and Texas last year I ran into Jerome Tiger's work for the first time at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and just happened to be there the last week they were showing his paintings of his on loan from a bunch of different collectors. As I was walking through I pointed out to my sister that I thought a dog in one of his paintings looked both profound and random at the same time. After I bought his art book I saw that was the same picture with the blob story. Maybe someday people will discover a profound cat paw and write a comment post about it instead of going to sleep.

The Beautiful Kind

I love painted books next to real books in a photo taken of books. And a man. :)
