The pieces that will be showcased in this exhibit are extraordinary.… Continue

Yey! I just finished writing my Beginning Repousse Techniques e-book and getting ready to do the final proof! Should be up and running, ready to sell by tonight! The next thing is my logo and "apparel" - am supposed to have the art back from the artist by the end of the month and then off to the screen printers! T-shirts and tank tops for the summer, sweatshirts/hoodies by the Fall - VERY EXCITED about all this!

Art is not my profession,
it is my passion.
Art is not my business
but it keeps me busy.
Art is not all about me,
instead it sets me free to be my true self.
Art is not my life
but through it I've learned the art of living.

Our transient existance shuffles it's feet towards the inevitable ..
Dragging it's possessions by a string so easily frayed ..
The world in it's gutter has taught that no one can know what time it will end ..
When all will slip down the storm drain and be gone ..
Prayers and anxiety fill the opaque sky ..
Leaving a misshapen room embracing darkness ..
Slamming my body into the wall of infinite thought ..
I see the end before the beginning ..
Fighting for… Continue

I didn't write in this blog yesterday because I spent half the day and most of the night in the ER. I'm fine now but I wasn't yesterday, obviously. They wanted to keep me for several hours longer (I was there for 7 hours already) but I was ready to go home. I did not want to be there for too much longer. It's a dreadful place to be.
I regretted going home when I did. I was still feeling a bit dizzy but I got through it and slept through the night. I woke up feeling fine. I was able to… Continue
