"To finish a work? To finish a picture? What nonsense! To finish it means to be through with it, to kill it, to rid it of its soul, to give it its final blow the coup de grace for the painter as well as for the picture." -Pablo Picasso

I really enjoyed that Jimmy D. youtube link. What a schnoz on that dude. Guess that's why you posted it though haha.

Never heard of Big Sur. Gonna look it up. Thanks for fueling the quest for knowledge. Nice picture of you and Deanna

hehe morro means funny. Cool post Ed, so much great art. I really dig Chris Johanson, and he is adorable in beautiful loosers. Why didnt more pros get on KOTR this year? what about Bennet, Jordan, Marks, Harmony or The Butcher ? I dont get it.

This is amazing. I love Barry & his work, a lot.
Marge's piece is beautiful.

The coastal drive from LA to SF is magical.
Majestic, moreso.
Big Sur is gorgeous, Mike.

Great post, duder.

I've never been on the coast between SF and LA. I want to go to Big Sur though. I've seen lots of isntagrams from that place.

I was thinking about Dali's first painting today. Like, he just fuckin did it then grew up to be am amazing. He seemed to have lots of perseverance. Essential to anybody trying to master any discipline.

They allow photos in the SF MOMA? I now ed has sneaky digi cam skills though.

I googled Chris Johanson. I saw a deck he designed. makes me wanna design some boards. The dude that designs shop decks at a local shop here, i feel like, doesn't fully grasp the opportunity to design decks.

As always, thanks for keeping us internet lurkers in mind and taking pics of the details. merci

You know how awesome it would be to have sex while sitting on that wood seat while in the middle

Sweet bridge.

I LOL'd at that seal with its mouth open.
"mwwwwaaaahhhhhh"

Blog neglect? lol yeah i've noticed these posts here have gotten kinda spread apart. but. I get my electronic overlord feed in my digital tummy urrday. not mad. Plus it makes sense to post where there is more of a response. then again you can post here and then post the link on facebook and get comments that way. Computers.

I watched the new Steamer epicly later'd like 4 times today. So good. BA and Ed like my fav skaters. and Jamie and Muska you have to love.
It was like Elissa was on Zero and Nike then overnight she just went underground.

those chairs in the water,
it'd be sick to pass away sitting in one of those
sitting there, of old age, done your time walking, take a nap, never wake up.

atascadero is a slang word for clusterfuck in spanish
