Art Shows????????

Why in the hell don't Artists call their gigs "Art Sells" instead of "Art shows" if they really desire to sell their art???  Just wondering .....


Any theories out there?

"They say ...

It's all about gift giving and spending

I'm so rushed to buy you something, anything

I hate those long lines of anxious shoppers

hunting for a bargain they can afford

That rude person that stole your parking was probably…

Ready to collect sediment from the world above

If love could find you, I - us

then please do so

Rescue us from our sinking ship

that is destined to set forever on the bottom

and collect barnacles of regret

If the light of God, Buddha and Jesus

could enlighten us sinners

now and at the hour of our death

We'd make sure our electric bills were paid in advance

so that you could zap us at your pleasure

If good sex could inflame us with enough passion

to live sustainable…

Passionately intoxicated by her vein ... conclusion ...

Trick or treat my lovely

draw near do not fear

the terrors of darkness

or the blood stained visions

which paralyze little lambs

with their puppy dog and princess costumes

escorted by overprotective moms with flashlight torches

Be not determined to destroy our claim to the souls of innocents

or defrock the sacredness of our haunting with garlands of garlic or…

Will Liberal Artists Vote?

The Pot Prop 19 is just a liberal democrat ploy to get younger voters out to vote so they don't lose control of the house ... How scandalous to think that the future of politics in America depends on a bunch of pot heads!

Selling Art Wisdom

If you want to sell art two things matter "location, location, location," and exposure... oops that's four, oh well. Showing in NY, San Francisco, Chicago, Santa Fe or Scottsdale do not qualify as location but some locations (Galleries) in these cities do. A very select and talented few make it in "these" locations. Therefore the other option "exposure" is your best bet, if enough people see your stuff you'll find buyers and the more… Continue

Day of Mourning

Columbus why did you come

across the mighty sea

to the land of the brave

to a world so free?

To our surprise

gold and greed,

the measure of your worth

Corrupted America with a foreign seed

Why such disrespect

ancient boundaries cry

turtle island sinks below the European tide

the Salmon, Wolf and Buffalo rhetorically ask "why?"

Mu-sick Wisdom

If your music is good people will say so but if its "so so" they'll say Granny could blow a better tune out her ass ... and if you're over 50 and the youngsters say your music is "sick" that means
it's "*groovy."

*Oh, youngsters, one last thing, when old farts say your music is groovy they don't mean it's full of holes or grooves they mean its "sick."

Come to me lover, I am here ...

Let not this moment pass unnoticed

by dwelling on yesterday

or what we will do tomorrow

Eternity is now

engage it fully by letting all distractions go

Release those captives,

those unhappy memories that wage war

Judge the past by engaging

passionately the now,

release yesterday to the forgetfulness of non-being

Oh, peoples, places and events,

I see your sacred dance unfold before me

I will worship in the…

Arthop Mistake to Avoid

I went to view her painting during Arthop downtown.

I said "hey baby your lines and the body of this piece sag."

Bam, she slapped me.

"Hey" I said, "what’s that for?"

Still seething she said, "not even my husband who gets a piece regularly talks about my face, breasts and tummy…
