Artist #48: Eldon Thorndike

Eldon Thorndike was born and raised in Alexandria, Louisiana. He learned from his father how to fish, how to fight, and how to paint. At age 33, the soft-spoken Thorndike has pretty much given up on the first two but has embraced the last: a prolific artist, his work typically chiefly concerns the cosmos, which is a subject he says he could paint forever. Thorndike now lives in an east-facing studio loft downtown with his two cats and boa constrictor, where everyday the sunrise burns his eyes.
