My Buddy Ben considers Blogging


























(Ben and me, painted tile by Ben and me, painting by Ben)
Ben is a painter and awesome guy. Sweet natured, polite, friendly, creative, thoughtful, intelligent. Ben is thinking about blogging. Why not, Ben? He has an online gallery (click!)but a blog is a more active thing. I'd have to give him some pointers, such as put EVERYTHING in there, with pics: Ben eats a burrito, Ben walks to the park, Ben buys beers at the store, Ben strips off his shirt on a hot day to wash his car......

When the Rolling Stones give concerts, women toss their undies at Mick. When Ben goes to the laundermat, women toss their undies at him.

I agree. Ben should blog.

I love blogging- Gary forced me into it! And I am sure he would comment at least once a day. I felt a little weird about it at first, but I have been finding out a lot of people read it, even though they don't comment. It is a great way to get your art work out there!

Nancy L.K. Boyce said...

Oh, I forgot- Ben, are you interested in doing a show? I need new artists, and I like your work.

Clean undies or (Ewwww!) dirty ones?

lol, Gary has a whole community of blogging artists. Which frankly sounds a lot better than Starving Artists.

Reb said...

Oh, definitely Ben should blog. He does some great stuff.

How about Ben strips off his shirt on a hot day to wash my car?

Farmer*swife said...

Will Ben be doing this while blogging? :-)

Come aboard, Ben. You know you wanna' hang with all us coolbies at the Power Table! :-D

WV: Ressess, I'm thinking like "recess."

Aleta said...

"Ben should blog" - sounds like a great blog title for him! Let us know if he takes the hint!

Knight said...

Come on Ben. Give in to the peer pressure.

Susan as herself said...

I personally would love more blog posts with shirless men.

There. I said it. Spread the word.

Susan as herself said...

Erm. Shirtless. ShirTless.

See? I am all a twitter at the mere thought.

tt said...

I'm thinking it's unanimous Ben.
The title's all ready for you too.
He's got nothing to loose right?? Oh yea...the shirt.....bring it boy!!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

I think he should blog. And do a giveaway of one his abstracts. And I should win.

Trish said...

Cheri sent me over too. To urge Ben to take off his shirt, err... I mean to blog. But I have to ask what is that silver pipe that goes into your hat for? And I also have to ask again if Ben is single? If he is, there are a bunch of bitches here that want to fight over him. Start a blog Ben. You'll have an instant dating pool... fan base, errr... audience.
