A list of shiny things


What are my shiny things today?

  1. Making photographs.
  2. Listening to Nancy Mulligan by Ed Sheeran.
  3. Working in my miniature atelier, talking to the mockingbird outside my window.

I like shiny things.

What are your shiny things?

Self Portrait Salon

Norman Rockwell.  Triple Self-Portrait. 1960.

5 more days.

The mantra that I repeat at this point is, “Art is my friend.  Art is my life.  Art is fun.”  This is when I pray that my muse will find me in my suffering and will drop at my feet a basketful of  inspiration.

See you on Saturday, May 19th at 10:30 AM.  Come to Brian and Manya’s beautiful house.  Their home is a piece of art, in and of itself.  If you are very nice, I bet you can get a tour of Brian’s studio and Manya’s garden.

See you on Saturday.  Art in hand.
