This is always such a beautiful show! Come see the PINK race car parked inside the gallery! OMG! Awesome! True Blue is playing because they are a hot and upcoming band, and because The Pink Show wants to incorporate BLUE, for all the men that have suffered from cancers, prostate and beyond. My dad had prostate cancer, I know how much he suffered, it was not an easy thing to go through, just as women go through the trials of breast and ovarian cancer… Continue

Hello all.. I need help and if you have a solution or suggestion please email me.

I have a school where students are falling behind due to Language Barriers and need assistance in reading and math. The school tried intervention through an afterschool program BUT it is the parents who did not want to have their kids come early or stay in school late because it inconvenienced them or felt that their kids were being thought to be 'stupid'.

Another tactic was tried by creating… Continue

Local News Crew is scheduled to come to my studio today 9/10/09

I've been aware of at least one juvenile hawk, Coopers hawk, I think, in the neighborhood. I hear the high pitched skree, even at first light sometimes. Once Rene called and stood with her mouth open after seeing a hawk hit a sparrow in our yard.

I plan to do an image of a bird, hawk, Coopers or Sharp shinned hawk today by igniting gunpowder on paper. Maybe they'll film it for the Ch 26 evening news. Maybe they won't. I'm dong it either way.

Speaking with some artist friends of mine, we decided we needed an outlet that would stress the strength and beauty in our diversity as… Continue
