Another New Beginning

It's been said that the only constant in life is change. So here I am, going in a new direction with my skills. I've always loved writing, lettering and painting. Since very few people are buying art these days, I'm making hand painted signs instead! Some are funny, some are sweet, some are wise, some are about cats and dogs . . .  the choice of topics is endless. The urge to create will never go away, so here we go.                            

I've opened a shop on Etsy:  SIGNS FROM THE UNIVERSE 
New signs will be added every couple of days.Those in progress today are:
"In Dog Beers, I've Only Had One!"
"This Way To Paradise"
"My Dog Is Smarter Than Your Honor Student"
"Dogs Owners, Cats Have Staff"

Stay tuned!

P.S. Sorry about the ads. Please don't buy framed wall art anywhere but from your local artists.

Olive the Dog/God

Olive the dog is a little goddess. She makes me laugh and that is hardly ever easy! She keeps my feet warm at night, buries treats under my pillow, loves apples, and her ears fly up when she runs. Chasing a stick around in the backyard is pure joy. Rediscovering the magic of simple pleasures and unconditional love.Thank you.

Senate Is No Place For Old Men

I can't apologize for my feelings on this. I watch political coverage on various channels, and online, and it seems that all I can focus on are these ridiculous old men in congress saying ridiculous things, sometimes about ridiculous issues. Don't they know they are spent and should get out NOW? Don't they realize that people look at them in amazement and can't believe they are still in these positions of power? Don't they know that they are done being important and should pave the way for younger, smarter, more energetic people? People with a conscience.Old men in congress, you are pathetic. Sorry, but you are very pathetic and I am embarrassed for you. Slip away quietly. Please!

My Studio is a Mess!

We're all scientists, experimenting in the laboratory of life according to today's horoscope. . . I think I can agree with that. However, the quality of the space, the lab, the studio counts for a lot. One can't be productive in an unorganized space. So, today is organization day. Also preparing for the community yard sale October 2nd. Time to go minimalist, again! What state of organization is your space in? Hmmmmm??

First Painting Ever

This is a terrible photo of the first painting I ever did, at Governor's School for the Arts, in 1973. I'm posting this because every time I look at it, it reminds me of 9/11 in New York City.

I watched some 9/11 television on Saturday 9/11 and one of the shows was a collection of raw videos people had taken that day, from all sorts of perspectives. I don't understand how the country pulled together so much after that, and then fell apart again. Of course, I can list 1,000 things that should have happened in the country, that the President and whoever did not do but that is neither here nor there now. What is most sad to me about this? That race relations in America haven't improved much since then. I think ethnic backgrounds and religions are taking a stance in their corners getting ready to fight.
