Hello! Hey there! It’s been a while. Looks like I have some clean-up to do here.
While I was busy elsewhere, I had a “grace illustrious” contact me twice about removing their name and content from this blog (‘CLITORIS, VAGINA, MAJORA, MINORA | The Ellipses Project’, 7.26.13). Done. I’m very sorry it took so long. May you live long and prosper!
It’s almost autumn! Last night was a full moon, something I try to capture every so often. No pic this time though–got distracted by other things–but I must say, it was a beautiful sight indeed.
Have you ever tasted snow on a warm summer breeze? Felt the sensation of crunching through half-frozen grass? The end of the year is getting close, and I can feel it now despite the lingering summer heat. It feels good!
Bring on Halloween! Sorry about the hyper, got a nice sugar buzz going.
And something about working in a notebook frees me up to make this mess without worry or guilt. I can’t explain why exactly. I’ve tried to see if there’s a scientific basis that connects working longhand with uncritical creativity, but evidence for that notion seems pretty scant. The actual work of shaping letters one by one, though, seems to turn off the part of my mind that hesitates and likes to second guess. My conscious mind kind of goes away. I think it helps that I know my notebook is just for me, a private thing, almost like a diary. The work becomes a recorded daydream.

Stay tuned for more news in the future months. I have been working very hard to produce one painting per day and to raise my eBay art store to a power seller level. The kitty cat series is currently being submitted to licensing companies and there are many more ideas and new paintings yet to be discovered. Thank you all for supporting a living artist!
This particular painting is intensely CUTE. ^_^
Fictional, yet intensely vivid. In my mind’s eye I can see this little girl watching the world around her.
She walks like the wind and speaks like a bird. She looks timid and physically challenged, but to her she is the queen of her slums. She passes along the huts that are dripping with water from the rain last night. Ladies are sitting outside their huts on the wet ground to get some fresh air. Black smoke from some huts fills the air indicating the preparation of lunch. Everyone recognizes her and pass her an occasional greeting. Her parents named her ‘Shehzadi’ , which means ‘the queen’. She loves to play with the little plastic bag that she carries around wherever she goes. Her little frock has innumerable patches and her hands are full of broken stuff that some rich kid had thrown away in trash. Her eyes are full of hope for a better future; her heart tells her that these days won’t last long. One day she…

Would you like to test your phobia? This stunning and scary stairway is real. Hanging high in the sky from the side of a building without so much as handrail, this staircase is dizzying just from the photos. These stairs are attached to the exterior concrete wall of this towering Swiss skyscraper over ten stories off the ground. They are not actually used by anyone. They are, instead, the work of spectacular staircase designers Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann.
