The wild cavorting colors of the collage pictured here depict the passion of interior thoughts; the material world burns away.
A few years ago, a Santa Fe gallery solicited work for a juried show with art focused on the human body. I entered and was accepted into the exhibition which was to start in the Spring. The collage I had been working on would be perfect for the show; the second installment of my Elements Series was large, intricate and colorful. I was delighted. At the time, I was also experiencing extreme pain in my eyes – like a thousand tiny daggers stabbing repeatedly – and I could hardly see well long enough to work more than 30 minutes at a time, but I was determined to complete the piece. Then 3 weeks before the art delivery date, the gallery canceled the show, with no explanation. I was devastated.
The moment has come. “My Thoughts Be True” and three other collages will be displayed in a show in Los Alamos. The show is called Spirit Lines and its aim is to “find beauty in the broken and imperfect in the tradition of Wabi Sabi.” The Portal Gallery is in Fuller Lodge Art Center, located at 2132 Central Avenue, in the center of Los Alamos, New Mexico. The reception will be on Friday, March 23, from 5-7 pm. email@example.com
I will be participating in the Fest For Beatles Fans this weekend in Jersey City, on the Hudson, displaying Fan art, and creating a multimedia live presentation of a tribute to the legacy of Brian Epstein. Enjoying Music and the Friendship of Beatles Fans.
Love and Peace!

Just like everyone else in the world, I am adjusting my plans and shifting my expectations. Until the crisis has passed and safety in Santa Fe is assured, I will be working from my studio in my home, doing my bit to help flatten the curve.
