Craighead Green Gallery’s Opening Night

Posted on Aug 6, 2017 in Fine Art, Gallery Opening

The opening was fabulous.  Lots of traffic, many of my friends included, and all around excellent artwork.  And I was particularly over the moon with where the gallery placed my piece–front and center!!   Thank you Katherine Wagner, Executive Director for Business for the Arts and juror and Craighead Green for sponsoring this show!

The Last of the Load-ups

A dirge for Not So Famous Amos, 2001-2011 You made the man who collects your pooh cry, seeing the blood, and so did we, as did they all as we left you behind. After the man cried and the evening before we left you behind, your head owled around your shoulder. Rolling that imperious shark […]

The Best I Heard

I need a break from all the ennui and angst The man said as he careened out of the poetry reading and into the street. Much to be said for this observation; many hearts-on-tatted sleeves last night.

On Waking Saturday Morning

Posted on Jul 22, 2017 in Poetry

The muddle of newsy news snapped off and the flush of air elbowed its force thru the ducts, spilling chill into the room and then sighed and quieted Quiet now, I wondered what the doctor meant when he told me I had a very small cervix.

Weirdo Magnet

The handsome men. Never see me. There was always someone with longer legs sunnier hair more come hither-i-ness that would flint their interests.   But the odd ducks flock to me.  Encircling me like fanboys. How is that? Do they intuit I am lame at heart, little shy, as much an outsider, as they?   […]

Musings on Musings and James T.

Posted on Jul 20, 2017 in Poetry

Smith.  Which, with a surge of working in the studio with the Dark Matters series, teased out some words of my own.  So, periodically I will be sharing some that I’ve written. In the interim, seeking a means […]

Invitiation to a Heritage Art Auction

Posted on Apr 1, 2017 in Fine Art, News

I was very flattered to receive an invitation to submit to the Dallas Arboretum’s Artscape II event. From the Reliquary series (ever growing), I selected Dirge for a Jay to be auctioned.  This piece is 80″x24″ mounted on a birch panel with [fake] silver leafed edges. The event is two-fold, an on-line auction and an […]

Update on the “Business of Art” Workshop

Posted on May 1, 2014 in News, Workshops & Classes

I thought I’d share the update from my CityWork blog regarding the outcome of my recent workshop at The MAC: We had a turn-out of approximately 20 people who braved this left-brain presentation on DIY web presence for artists. Lots of good questions, some people furiously wrote notes and yes, as expected a few unstifled yawns.  I […]
