That’s so funny. I was photographing this piece today and my camera lectured me with a big hello digital warning that someone in the photo had blinked. Aside from the impossibility, I’m a little angry with my camera…if it so damn smart then why oh why can I not take a photo without glare? I’m blaming my camera. My camera blames me…when will it end?
It is the end of this piece though. I was thinking of adding a ribbon to hold that fish atop my model’s head, but no….I thought it might be a bit too distracting. The title? The Vanity of Technologies. Right?

I like to look at paintings up close….so, I thought, dear viewers, you might like to see what my camera work leaves out – – I added several detail photos here. As you can see, a close up view reveals (that what might appear to be an over-aggressive brush when you view this piece as a whole) 0’s and 1’s are dissolving from view…or that’s what it’s supposed to be anyway. There are those that hypothesize we do not live in a base reality, that the universe is merely a hologram – a projection of reality. Well,

And, you thought I’d finally given up painting? Well, it has been a while since I’ve done anything worth sharing. This is what is on the easel at the moment, a nice piece featuring a glass of spilled wine – – spillage without breaking the glass! It’s a miracle! A glass saved…although, saved or not, I can’t help but wonder if that bow had anything to do with it. It’s a work in progress – needing much more paint! Oil on cheap canvas,
