My friend Barbe says that this flat little figures remind her of cookies.



The truth, but not the whole truth. Nothing demands more caution than the truth: it is the lancet of the heart. It requires as much to tell the truth as to conceal it. A single lie destroys a whole reputation for integrity. The deceit is regarded as treason and the deceiver as a traitor, which is worse. Yet not all truths can be spoken: some for our own sake, others for the sake of others.

A maxim, by the great thinker Balthazar Gracian de Morales

Life in southern Cali

Saturday, July 14th, 2007

Its delightfully overcast this morning. The overbearing heat in sunny southern Cali does not make for a lot of energy. Best to get some yard work done early and my neighbors apparently think so as well judging by the continuous hacking or axing of something.  I think I really need an expanse of land surrounding our home so I can’t hear the neighbor’s noises and well they probably think that about us too since the pugs diligently yak at every squirrel or lizard rustling the bushes.

Three Hands are Better than One

I created a homemade bird bath by by turning a large pot upside down and placing a somewhat deep dish with water on top of it and within a couple of hours the feathered ones discovered it. I enjoy watching them bathe especially when its so hot.

One of my favorite paintings sold from the show in Michigan which I mentioned here a few weeks ago. Its great to have sales and know that work is gracing somebody’s walls but when its a favorite piece its also bitter sweet. I create so much art though that I really can’t even keep some of my favorites and well naturally its the favorites that always sell the fastest.

If you are an artist living in the Santa Monica area our sister gallery has a vacancy and needs to fill it.

I am working on a new batch of figures, want to finish them up, because I have some paintings on the brain…

Made several mixed media figures over the weekend, here is one of them

Art Rains Reigns

I love this poem someone left for me regarding this piece;

"she’s made of hair and bone and little teeth
and things I cannot speak
she comes on like a crippled plaything
spine is just a string"


I have listed this figure and a couple of others on ebay starting for much less than I would sell them for at the gallery.

Saw Sicko, two thumbs up.
