First off, even though everyone is going to and fro for the holiday, I still want to wish that everybody has a safe, joyous, not too overstuffed, Thanksgiving with family and friends! And if in your Tryptophan induced couch slugdom, you happened to venture into my little corner, I thank you.
I am blessed in more ways than I can name, with family, friends, a home, my health, and so much more. Even my present employment situation is in some weird way, a blessing. I have had plenty of time to reflect on what is important in my life.ii have a wonderful lady who is warm, caring, talented, funny, silly, and most of all loving, and willing to put up with my bull-headedness most of the time. So Royce, thank you, and I want the world to know I love you. My daughter, Jessica, who can aggravate the living ka-ka out of me at times, is one of the best things that has happened to me in my 62+ years on this rock. My Sister, Marsha, husband Wayne, niece Amanda, have always been there for me, I love you guys. To all of my friends out there, words can't express how much I appreciate and cherish all of you. So here is to all of you, my thanks, hope you much happiness.
I am in the process of sorting through paintings and photography in order to set up an ETSY shop. I hope to have it up and running soon. Royce is trying to guide me through it, a lot more to it than I thought. I am also looking into Red Bubble and Cafe Press as further outlets. I am inspired to finally to get up off my duff and try and make a go at supporting myself through my art. This has been an "on the back-burner dream" for a long time, and I have realized the time is now. As more than one person has mentioned, it's about time!". So to all of those who have followed my work for years, or just finding out who I am and what I do, hang on, the wild ride is about to begin!
Looking through the archives, I stumbled upon another of my 1970's era pieces, based on a seen of the PBS production of Ursela K. LeGuin's epic novel, "The Lathe of Heaven"....this painting dates back to 1979...
