Half-remembered songs

Matt Adrian, The Mincing Mockingbird, paints birds with acrylic on birch panels.

A Cage Called Sodom

A Financially Unstable Mess, But at the Liquor Store They Call Me Ma'am

A Plain Story Simply Told, Sprinkled Here and There with Magnificent Blasphemy

A Strong Determination to Get the Best out of Life Is Directly Responsible for This Waking Nightmare

Another Drink Wouldn't Hurt - I Only Live Two Years

Dancing in the Acacias, and Time Looked the Other Way

Daytime Napping Is for Amateurs

Fireside Cowboy Ballads About Those Cool New Slot Machines at the Indian Casino

Had I But Hands to Put About Your Throat

I Cannot Believe I Was Brought back from the Brink of Extinction for THIS

It Had Seemed Such Innocent Pleasure

It Was a Bitter Blow, Delivered with Panache and a Bit More Emotional Violence Than I Am Used to

Overdressed and Underappreciated

Should the Opportunity Arise, I've Made up Some Titillating Tales

The Reluctant Omnivore

The Unsung Magnificence of Half-Remembered Songs

There Are Some That Believe Adultery Is Grounds for Being Unfriended on Facebook

« Matt Adrian's lush acrylic paintings of birds range from the delightfully cute to the decidedly sinister. His uniquely soulful, minimalist avian portraits seem to gaze out at the world with the unknowable gaze of wildness.

« Adrian's distinctive titles juxtapose the primal existence of birds with the often awkward folly of modern human existence.

« He has published two books: It Is Folly to Assume My Awesome Lies Dormant: The Paintings of the Mincing Mockingbird and The Mincing Mockingbird Guide to Troubled Birds.

« Matt Adrian [The Mincing Mockingbird] lives in California with his wife, artist Kim Bagwill [The Frantic Meerkat].»
