I like to call him Billy Bob...

For those of you who dont know Bosque, I just want to say a few things about him. Bill is a kind, loving and very intelligent man. He runs Love Song Art Shows, he puts on phenominal events and yet he still mantains his positive down to earth, extremley humble sense of humanity. He would be there for anyone in a pinch. God knows he has had to council me on more than 100 occasions! He is always ready for a good laugh and just when you have him filed away in your mind as one of those, he comes… Continue

Getting Nude on Saturday

I'm really getting excited now! Saturday we'll be accepting entries at Chris Sorensen's for the 6th annual Nudes in November. I've heard from several out of town artists who are bringing work, from as far away as Ventura! This is going to be a great show, and I feel the anticipation building... I hope we have enough wall space. And then there's the juroring.... it's so hard to tell artists that their work wasn't accepted, even though they paid a $20 entry fee. Some people get angry with me,… Continue

To members of the Fresno Arts Council, I just wanted to say 'thank you' for allowing us to spread the word about the Central Valley Dance Festival. We loved having all the dancers, directors, musicians and artists share their talents with us and the community.

To all new participants this year, plus our 2nd and 3rd year 'alumni', thank you for your grace and willingness to assist us both backstage and onstage. I was told that we have inspired many to support local artists in the… Continue

That Can't Be Done! - Oh Yeah?

How many times I have heard the words, "that can't be done" "no way" at "what budget?" "there's a budget?" With hundreds of volunteer hours, a ton of supportive friends and relatives, the answer is a resounding YES!

Dance is such a dynamic art that transcends all other barriers of understanding between peoples (socio-economic, culture and race, religion and status, profession and association). It is what I fell in love with BUT the opportunity never came for me to get trained in the… Continue

today 10-11-08

I walked by the door today and

the outside trees were absolutely singing with the wind!

I was drawn outside

by the music of the wind thrilling though the trees and bushes

and by a thread of a bright green light

moving into

more complex shades

of darker greens




and limbs.

painted by an unseen hand.

I was pulled outside

into the full glory

of one of those brillant days… Continue

Getting ready for a show... nude.

It's almost time... October is ending...and Nudes in November is almost here. I'm part of the Chris Sorensen Studio, and this is my second year curating the Nudes show. It's really exciting! One of my favorite parts is when artists bring in their work (this year it's on the 25th). Seeing each artists impression of the human figure is inspiring. Most portray beauty, others... well, there aren't ever many that are negative, thankfully.

I've always loved figurative work. While in… Continue

A New Publication and a Pushcart Prize Nomination

My poem, "Sweeping, el logico de la escoba, a los desaparacedos de Guatemala" has just come out in the new double issue of Whiskey Island Magazine, which has nominated it for a Pushcart Prize. Whiskey Island Magazine is published in Ohio. I wrote to the editor after being notified of the nomination, that validations through publishing come few and far between, and to be not only published but nominated for a Pushcart is amazing. Let this be encouraging to us all!
