And the winner is…


Thank you to everyone who commented on the blog and on the studio page on facebook! I added the number of blog comments (24!) to the facebook comments (13!) for a total of 37 comments. Each of the comments was given a number – blog posts are 1-24, then facebook 25-37. Then I went to […]

Giving away.


The trip to California is planned. Two dogs and a Mom and a bit of art work in a Honda Element – google maps says 1,555 miles. Wahoo! So I make a list of things to pack. I know what I need to set up the artwork. But traveling with dogs… that is where I […]

And now for a brief interruption.


Mea culpa, Internet Explorer 6 users. I know there are quite a few of you out there who cannot read this blog (because only half of the page loads). I’m trying to fix this as fast as my feeble, tech-head will process. So here’s the dilemma. Should I scratch this site design and start over […]

Yvonne Sovereign.


Pretty cool stuff happens. Like when renowned artist/painter/whippet fancier, Yvonne Sovereign, asked to use MY greyhounds as models for a few of her oil paintings! Oh my Dog! WOW! Awesome! Wonderful! Hurray! I think she’s capture both Greyhounds fabulously! You must see Yvonne’s website and read her artist’s blog.

Decisions, decisions.


This is a camera equipment post. Two questions. I want a new tripod. I use it for photographing artwork in the studio — I’m not packing it into the mountains. I want it to be easily adjustable with a level at all possible. I occasionally use a macro lens when photographing work and don’t want […]

Yeah! Facebook!


If you’re a friend with me on facebook you already know this — due to some fancy setting that I don’t fully understand, the posts from this blog end up on my facebook profile. That means…yes!… that the last two months of posts *aren’t* gone! There they are on facebook. Oh my golly. I’m not […]

Pardon my mess…


I tend to approach problems in the Thomas Edision way I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. ~ Thomas A. Edison I think I’ve found nearly that while trying to fix this blog. And after the smoke cleared I discovered the simple solution. Goodbye November and December blog posts and […]

This meme is floating around. While I usually don’t play, this one seemed sort of… well, something. So the rules are: if you’ve already done the thing it needs to be in bold. Things I want to do are italicized and things I haven’t done/don’t want to do are in plain font. THE 99 THINGS […]

You know about ted.com? Probably everybody does, but I finally clicked a link in a email from a friend and… wowweee!!! Having a ball playing the TED talks on my laptop as I work in the studio. Here’s a cool video to get started:

Miscellaneous is one of my favorite words. Also lascivious. And Pterodactyl. The problem with Pterodactyl is that it doesn’t come up much in conversation. I have to go in front of the Commissioners of our County and ask for money for the library today. Everyone means well, but still this is not something that I […]
