North Haven, Connecticut based Maurice Sapiro is an artist that grew up in America from Highlands, New Jersey. You get a great sense of fluidity to the dreamy presentation of Maurice’s work, evident in his technique ranging from his oil paintings, to sculptures, to his basic hand drawn sketches.

Some of his most dream-like works comes from his “Pour Paintings”, where he uses a technique of “Viscosity Printing”, a technique developed by the late Stanley William Hayter, which uses oil paints of different viscosities which repel each other, rather than blending together.

Remember Rip Torn? Well, he pleads guilty

Posted from The Citrus Report

Rip Torn, owner of one of the greatest names in the history of all mankind, plead guilty to breaking into a Connecticut bank while drunk and armed. That is amazing. Imagine: “I’m Rip Torn, I’m ripped up, and I’m fucking robbing your ass!”

And he is damn 79 years old! What a badass! They should hire him up for a Tom Cruise role. Let him go out with a bang.
