Warmer in Norway

Right now, it's 36 degrees in Moss, Norway and 19 degrees here in Portland Maine.  This. Is. So. Wrong.  I poked my head out the door to take this photo of JK shoveling, but then scurried back inside the house. 


Why the interest in Moss, Norway?  Because that's where Twitter artist David Sandum lives and produces his Twitter mail art shows to benefit different charitable causes in his community.  We used to do the same sort of fundraiser at Asylum Gallery in Sacramento in the day, where we asked mail artists to donate work and then would donate all sales to the Women's Wisdom Project which provided free art classes and lunch for women going through hardships like divorce, homelessness, cancer, losing a job, you name it.

Click on this link and you can see the original that I sent off to Norway.   It's called Toward Transcendence and is a multimedia piece.

But then I got thinking wouldn't it be nice to have an image of the Buddha in it.  I actually found an old photo from Hawaii of a Buddha and did some magic in Photoshop and it's now up at my art site at Fine Arts America.
