A booth event is a sale with multiple vendors with each vendor putting up their own display booth. The event may be geared to sell only art or it may allow different types of vendors. Basically there are three types: Outdoor, Indoor and Tabletop. Outdoor events are usually larger than the Indoor ones and will attract a larger crowd. A tabletop may be either indoors or outdoors; the main difference between a Tabletop and the others is the space size. Most booth events allow you a 10’ x 10’…

Spring Fever

Where will the words go,

when the moon is so full.

The spring twilight is a deep shade of robin eggshell blue,

 and the blossoms play

with my senses.

Sweet and painful


Getting me ready

for the heat that is coming

I stole his sideways glances.

that puffed up


head cocked up stance,

that begs,

“What the fuck is really going on?”

Perched way up high

above the skyline

with the


only he can get.

You can try

to stand beside him,

Mi Casa

I rearrange books, furniture and clothes around with the satisfaction of a winning chess move.

In the peace that only time can bring,

 I have finally envisioned this place

a home.

We are not bound to belongings.

I take care to only keep what belongs to my heart.

My heart will only house love.

The last moments with Lupe.

The way her porcelain smooth skin was swaddled in mango scents at the moment that we serenaded her goodbye.

Everyone is allowed a dream

I remember

Worn out canvases can be painted

 and even when my skin feels too old to have such things,

 brightly colored fairy dusted dreams,

I am allowed.

 I am shameless and quite unstable when it comes to day dreams.

 I find them unsettling and corrosive,

 necessary destruction to my old landscapes.

How else could I imagine the new world I am building?

New foundations can only be built when the old foundations have been…

Happy Valentine’s Day

 When did we start celebrating Valentine’s Day? Well I suppose you could say it began with a poem written by Geoffrey Chaucer, who wrote a poem that cemented a pre-existing general belief, at least in medieval England, that February 14 was the day when birds chose their mates. Chaucer, 1343 – 25 October 1400, is…

The boy from my electronic past.

Rebel cause:  unknown.

Leather and jean jackets in hand.

I watch the clouds of machine made fog

circle our feet .

Darkness falls across his eyes,

in the wisp of his hair, and over his cheek.

We are young and there isn’t any time

for mercy

or, for  forever.

We are innocent savages.

He walks these halls oblivious to the noise.

The songs play loud,

electronic, and never end.

He wakes up 20 years…

It’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Local Business Saturday this week. This time of the year is probably when one of the best opportunities to sell your work emerges, yet most artists don’t know how to take advantage of it. Some of them may even feel guilty about promoting sales at this time. For those of you who feel guilty about telling friends, past customers, family and acquaintances “Hey, consider buying from me when selecting Holiday gifts”, let’s consider a few things. Do you know…

When I started to take my art seriously, I knew that peer group association was important for me to grow as an artist, but finding the right art group to join was a little frustrating.  Why is it so important to associate with other artists? Well, although you can create art in a vacuum, if your art is never evaluated by…
