It's Live

After spending all week working on the application (all artists need to get vetted to apply for this) and then working up a budget, contacting places for studio rentals, contacting models, getting a line on costume and props folks and making a video pitch....

GIving Thanks

Thank you gentle reader for being there to listen to not only my rants and raves, but my idle speculations and small time boasts.  I'm truly grateful for your interest and support.  The new show is being hung at Constellation Gallery for the holiday season, so I thought I would share my wacky video with you.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with all that you desire and love!

No More Political Ads

I'm so grateful that the elections are over and the little TV that I watch will not be bloated with lies and half truths.  I would love to do a public art project that would include the purchase of TV spots that informed people that most ads are, well, lies or half truths.  I might make a few 30 spots that could air on Vimeo or You Tube.  But enough about me, how are you?

Do you often feel that you are not as talented as the other kids  artists?  Sometimes after looking at particularly good work, I feel a little inadequate as a creative person.  It's that moment of doubt that always comes over us just as we're about to take that leap off whatever cliff we have come up against.  Then I have to remind myself that we're all different and stars in our own rights.  Then, I see things like this.  I remember that I do have my own kind of crazy magic.

In other news, the winner of a print from the Ann Tracy room at Constellation Gallery is Katelyn Payne!  Come own down and pick out your print.  Since next month is December, I think I'll give away two prints, so be sure to come to Constellation for first Friday if you're in Portland.

and finally, what do you think of this?

Dona Nobis Pacem

My face is a little red right now because this was supposed to post automatically yesterday.  Apparently some operator error is part of the problem. 
It's November 4th, time for bloggers to fly their Peace Globes.  This year's addition is "Time for the Power of Peace".   But let's let everyday be a Peace Day.  If we can carry enough love in our hearts, I think we can find a peaceful world.

One of the great thinkers in the Peace Movement is Judith Hand.  She is both a writer and a scientist and has written an eye-opening book called "Women, Power and the Biology of Peace.  It's available as a free E-book and  you can find it HERE.

One of the things I see as a major impediment to peace, is the lack of women in politics.  We women do have a responsibility to bring peace to the world.  Let's all do our parts!
