Truth is Beauty

Miles Roberts in Desert Mounties: Painting Pictures Ep. 55


My big brother Miles joins Painting Pictures to bounce around the spiritual, cultural, and political landscape of December 2016 in Craftsbury, Vermont. Beanies, cats, elections, Canada, and cozy pants are mentioned. Closing sequence of man struggling to saw through a tiny piece of wood.

Happy 2017

It’s 2017 and here we are. Obliged to take the next step into tomorrow, and make some resolutions! Who’s got ‘em?!?!? The number one resolution of 2017, as it turns out, is “To Be A Better Person”, which barely beat out “losing weight”, I think. Or going to the gym.

That’s a step forward! That, that; that, my friends, is worth celebrating.

I gave many hugs to strangers tonight and wished them a Happy 2017. I’ve never experienced the fullness of celebrating the new year like I did tonight. Dudes, mostly, but some chicks too. Everybody was FEELING IT. Seriously, bro. Feeling it. Convinced that 2017 will be the best year yet, partially because they say it can’t be as bad as 2016. But secretly they know that 2016 was pretty great in it’s own right.

I’m feeling it. Big stuff, yo. “Big Stuff”, as Larry David said it, gesturing to the engine of the Toyota Camry he was trying to sell. He had no idea what was under the hood…

Turning Thirty: Painting Pictures Ep. 52

I made it to thirty years old! Next stop: the year 2047. Here’s a new episode of Painting Pictures to commemorate this momentous occasion, recorded dangerously while driving around Vermont. Pie crust recipe complaints, some thoughts on boogers, over-competitive society, and, of course, coffee. Oh and I got married!

September 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

Yes! September is here! You got it! Probably the best month of the year, and a few days late I’m happy to present a new desktop background image for your computer:

september-2016 desktop calendar background by Gabriel Roberts

This photo is from Highway 12, just North of Elmore Vermont. The road hugs the side of Mount Elmore, and off to the side you can often see an ocean of fog in the lowlands. On this morning it crept all the way up to the highway.
