A lovely couple from Isreal purchased Brandon's "Triangle Bridge" at the Hatbox downtown Austin!
Brandon continues to remind the world that none of us should have limits put on our potential by gifting his art to individuals and organizations that demonstrate genuine respect for people with developmental disabilities through our new initiative Free from Limits. This week we had the honor to include Dr. Cynthia Peacock at Baylor College of Medicine & Texas Children's Transition Medicine Clinic in Houston. It was an awesome occasion with presentation, coworker packed reception and an interview that was filmed.
A wonderfully perfect representation of Mount Baldy in Grand Lake, Colorado. It was a fantastic family vacation ❤️
Stevie has been duly elected as Sergeant at Arms of the Brandon Lack Studio organization. She holds well-founded credentials and long history of performance, which led directly to this order keeping position. Follows is the beginning back story: One day while I was visiting with a friend in my kitchen we heard 2-year old Stevie call from the hallway, Aunt Katherine! Aunt Katherine! Brandon is loitering in the hallway! She meant fluttering—a calming self-stimulation behavior of fluttering a soft white paper towel of which we discouraged daytime “public” use. As I remember, I couldn’t resist the temptation to holler back Move Along!, much to my friend’s puzzlement. From that time on Stevie was firmly established as the loitering police—a broad scope and vastly encompassing role. Anyone who knows Stevie, Brandon and/or Aunt Katherine should get at least mild amusement form this reminiscence.
Brandon takes photos of things that catch his eye.
Brandon loves to deliver his paintings and meet his new friends! Here he is with his new sweet friend, Amy.
Visited The Contemporary Austin Laguna Gloria and Jones Center, Blanton Museum and finally Umlauf Sculpture Garden all in one glorious day. Lunched at Whole Foods midway through the day and stopped at a downtown haberdashery for a spiffy new hat. It was the perfect day.
Brandon loves music and has always wanted to be a rock star. Much to the chagrin of his music purist sister Maryhelen, he particularly likes greatest hits albums because they usually hit all the highlights. Well.... Brandon had the brilliant idea of doing a greatest hits piece of his first year as a painter. He diligently worked on it for weeks and we think it is spectacular! What a fun project.
There has been lots of excited planning, discussing and use of plastic lids for outlines with this piece. We are thrilled that he has such a complicated ambition. You can see the concentration and satisfaction in his body language in this photo. Life is good.
Brandon had the best night at his Artist's Reception sharing his artwork at the FOURground EAST exhibition. It was so wonderful for us to see old and new friends; the support means so much to all of us. His work was displayed at the art space for the two weekends (November 14 and 15 & November 21 and 22) from 11am-6pm all four days. Thanks again to everyone who came or sent good wishes. It was great!
Rebecca and Lawson took Brandon to see an old favorite from a long time ago, Boz Scaggs, who bills himself as a singer with a Kermit-the-Frog-Smoothness. They had a great time, although clearly among the youngest of the attendees.
