My guitar-slinging buddy Scott Burnett has been my partner in music-making crime for close to 30 years. We have written a lot of songs together, I did session work for him back when he was a music producer, we can usually be spotted gigging together, and lately we have been collaborating on a light-jazz/latin/easy-listening/perfect-for-wine-swilling CD.
Meanwhile, he has been gradually establishing himself as an artist. I don’t recall when he started painting, but it’s been at least several years, and he has been getting serious about it the last two years. I don’t know much about art, but his work reminds me a little of Kandinsky or Klimpt given Scott’s penchant for building larger pieces out of small geometrical shapes.
If you are in the Seattle area you simply must visit Cafe Lulu (on Latona and N 65th) and check out his art up close and personal. Here are pictures of his art featured on its walls. And have a great espresso drink prepared with love and care. You can see more of Scott’s art on his web page lifeisontheground.com.
