Happy Easter!(to those celebrating)

This is what happens when I brainstorm new ideas for paintings:

There's no doubt that the Boston Marathon will be extra special this year after the horrible events that occurred last year. It's still hard to believe that anyone would intentionally do what those bombers did, but they did...

I dealt with my grief of all of it by running, writing, doing stand-up and painting. Those sorts of things are always what I use as my therapy. :-)

Here's a painting I did last year:

It's supposed to represent the spirit of Boston.

In the tradition of the throw back thursday that goes on on facebook and twitter,
I'm proud to present to you this amazing rap song I wrote in 4th grade.
Try not to be overwhelmed by my mad rap skillz! ;-)

Yo my name is Val
And I live in Saugus, MA
I got a brown house
And it is the max
Say just yesterday I was chillin in the street
When a big red beet came and ran over me
I was flat
Flat as could be
Then to my surprise I died and came back
