Hi its me. The collage to the left is by me.
I got a new dog, she's great. She's a Boxer/Great Dane cross. Solid Black and very sweet/bad. I love her, she loves me. My ol man left me. It's OK, it will be better that way.
I'm listening to Los Lobos. I'm feeling ...lonely.
I'm drinking wine, and eating pork (rinds) skins, YES PORK SKINS. I like em. Live with it.
I am making paper beads. I still can't paint. I'm growing lots of tomatoes, though...
I had a bad experience at a local art gallery. If I had it my way, no artist would EVER have to go through that. I hate snooty gallery owners who know NOTHING about art, artists, or the process of making art. This one just wanted a good story for her customers. I'm not a writer, I'm an ARTIST. I love you all.
I thought this Danish guy's site was interesting...I don't understand it all but still. See what you think.
I can't remember how to include links, please forgive me.

No more wine drinking with little fingers pointing into the sky,
no more gossip showing that the lady in sable is someone with style and knowledge on art.
No more piano music covering the gallery owner's enthusiastic efforts to sell multi million
canvases to the lady in sable.
Do I challenge art traditions?
Indeed I do.
Some traditionalists are deeply choked when they hear that my online images in exhibitions on galleries world wide and on my own web site are digital images. Not all are painted.
I use the potential of the new technology to the extreme.
