First Interview for Artist!

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. 

At first Brandon's women were worried about the interview causing potential stress because he has been in situations where people have asked complex questions about painting technique and theory of art, which although well meaning is perplexing for this particular artist. As shown by his body language and facial expression in this photo... we needn't have worried.

WOW

A wonderfully perfect representation of Mount Baldy in Grand Lake, Colorado. It was a fantastic family vacation ❤️

Stevie Gene, Sergeant at Arms

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.

The Best Part...

Brandon loves to deliver his paintings and meet his new friends! Here he is with his new sweet friend, Amy.

The Whole Day with Mh. Four Museums. PERFECT!

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.

Greatest Hits 2015

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. 

Working on a New Piece

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.

"Volunteer of the Year" and get to dress up in a costume! What a night!
