just taking a word bath here:
Limn (1. to draw or paint on a surface 2. the multicolored shimmer above a body only for moments before the sun sets)
Limner’s Grade A Fancy
Limner “with the mother”
I like the word, but you can’t understand what I’m saying unless you read it. Limb? No. Limn. That’s what I said. No you didn’t.
A friend gave me another word and I like it: Educe. Eduction- to bring out or develop.
Eduction. Eduction. Eduction.
Eduction- Structural Revival
Or some throwaways:
“No Slap Painting”
“Cut n Roll”
“Drip to Remember Painting”
“Rusty Holidays Painting”
“Rusty Ray Shawn Restoration”
Right now we’re called Russ Walker Painting. That’s because Russ is a clean cut guy with a Finance background who handles all my business. (He is also a real legal person, for purposes of banking and the courthouse). The unshaven paint foreman with bad English and the radio set to Q93 Top Country, that’s Levon. Levon is the stage name of an obscure singer/songwriter who has yet to break into the “melodramatic popular song” music scene and who is constantly correcting people’s pronunciation of L’von. Tough word to read, I know. It’s LEE von, please. Like Levi’s Jeans. Like the Elton John song. Exactly like the Elton John Song. Or just call me Russ, my mom does.
(See why choosing a name is important? It can’t easily be undone.)
Anyways, Russ Walker Painting just doesn’t have the ring. And this has all been going on long enough. It’s like I’m thirty years old and still trying to name my band. Actually, well.
Paint the Town Painting
Mohair Nap Slap
Cartoon Balloon Construction (reference to Elton John’s Levon Tostig)
Jackleg Protection and Cover Up Society
Earlybird. By the ladder crack of dawn.
I actually like that one. Oh Bucket Painting.
It’s time to go to bed.
