I have known for quite some time that I was going to have to get a website where people can easily see my art, read my story and if they so choose--buy original art or a numbered limited print. I have been focusing intently on doing the art itself and doing a lot of art-related philanthropy, but now I am stepping up and working with a top-notch web developer to create a site we can all be proud of.
But, like building a house (or even doing a minor re-model) plans and deadlines often get extended. I can tell you that this will not be like the Winchester Mystery House, where the construction never seemed to end.
So, hopefully in July, when you come here you will see a wonderful website that will captivate you and hopefully change your life. Or at very least--you won't get nauseous!
From time to time, I like to do a piece with a message. This is my newest collage and it's called Silly Arguments. During the holiday season, we have to hang out with relatives. It often involves long plane trips, traffic and a lot of family-related stress.
Silly Arguments, 2015
This year, I have heard some amazingly horrific stories about family encounters during the holidays. Luckily, I don't have any to share of my own. I keep it simple. I enjoy the company of my wife, my father-in-law and my dogs and we stay home--safe and content and void of silly arguments and family quarrels that are re-visited every holiday season.
The positives are numerous: I don't have to sit through long-winded stories that I've heard 100 times before; pointless gifts that will soon be in the bin; endless photos with fake smiles and inane expressions; toddlers walking around with a full diaper while their mothers play Scrabble; "special" dishes like jello mold and three-bean salad; scrapbooks and family videos that never seem to end and that one relative who watches too much Fox News and wants to discuss politics.
Have a Great New Year Everyone and Please Stop Silly Arguments Today!
