Sometimes you have to wonder...

Why do some artist seem to equate artistry with being a snob? It's like certain artist out there feel that they have to pick apart works and styles that are unlike their own - to what?, appear better educated?, higher brow?, higher class?, or are you just allowing the masses to see you for the snotty bore you are?

I tell you.... Some people may have the "skill" to be an artist.... but they lack the HEART.

Publishing 4 more poems!

I just learned that a journal called HotMetalPress is publishing all 4 of the poems I submitted to them for their winter/spring issue, which should be out fairly soon. As I looked at the e-mail requesting the publication rights, I saw what I think is a clue about why they took all four poems, instead of the usual cherry-picking that goes on. It's not unusual to submit 4 and have them take 1, or none at all.

The interesting thing about this particular submission was that the… Continue

A New Year

Well here we are at the beginning of a new year! The past year was filled with terrific jobs commissioned through our business, The Metal Shoppe, and we are very fortunate that our calendar is still filled with committed jobs through April of this year. Admittedly, though, as the economy has changed, we have had to work a little harder at finding work. In an effort to expand our customer base, we have learned quite a bit about enhancing our website with the right key words and proper website… Continue

Do you have a song to sing?

I am an enabler. An enabler of musical dreams. If you can sing it I can find the chords for it and even write it down in music notation. I can create a music track composed of a guitar and voice all the way to a full band sound.
Check out the demos at

The Meanest Mom in the Whole Wide World...

I am writing about the meanest mom in the whole wide world.

She yells at her children for really stupid stuff.

She made them feel scared and sad, she sent them to bed without kisses and hugs.

She told them they will never have a nice home like everyone else because they don't want one. She even told them they are getting oatmeal for breakfast, lunch and dinner just like the orphans in the movie. She was so mad she sent those poor kids straight to bed and they fell fast asleep. By… Continue

The day before the art submission to the Fresno Art Museum

Today is Thursday...the day before the very last day for submissions to the Fresno Art Museum. After I get off work today, I am off to pick up the frame for my painting. Tomorrow during my lunch, I will be hurrying to the museum to submit my piece. It is titled 'Andru's Pride'. It would be great if everyone could attend the reception and celebration on January 23rd from 5:00 to 7:00 at the museum. I have grand hopes that my piece passes the jurors and will get to hang in the museum. Keep your… Continue
