koi show is hung

thanks to the kato for helpin' me hang the newly sprung november show at the blue koi .. the owner is happy and we are to .. it's a good looking ensamble and nice to see the window series up in full glory back on the friendly confines of the 39th street district .. first and foremost, i want to thank my lovely caroline for coming up with the window frame idea .. these pieces look real nice up against the sky blue wall .. and again, it takes a lot of work to curate and hang these shows .. almost harder than creating the piece to begin with .. between wires, positioning, measuring, plotting, moving, teetering on ladders - it's an insurance risk .. but, the bound enjoyment after the sweat has settled into the cotton is enormous .. click here to see this newest show and thanks for your continued support .. cheers -

saw the yankovic circa 80's

i was thinking today about the good old days at the world's of fun amphitheater .. they used to cater to some pretty cool acts there in the mid 80's .. the best was wierd al yankovic doing his 'beat it' rendition to a throng of cheering kids hoping to catch his used banana peel .. saw a wrestling match with the iron shiek, as well .. it all looked real to me .. enjoy the amusements out there ..

art in me hometown

just had an old friend drop me a line about getting my stuff into several places on the downtown avenue in liberty, mo .. it'll be nice to be back in the hometown to throw some wares up onto the walls .. one is a jewelry shop and the other is a new italian eatery .. more detais as they arrive .. and by the way, sometimes when i'm not sure what to do on a blank google splash page, i parooze Salvador Dali .. i have always loved the surrealist movment and Dali is a great story .. i have some ideas that would be much better served as a surrealist imprint, rather than an impressionism/abstract .. something to aspire to on some level .. here's a nice Dali site: click here - enjoy the cold leafed up sunshine ..
