My Bangor Victory

Diana came to Eastport and brought the ribbons I won in the Juried show.  How could I not capture the proof of my rare success?

Spring Again

It seems so sudden that Spring preoccupation with other things has kept me from noticing that the garden is already out of control.  I must have thought that the winter would last forever.

Willy and Patrick

It was my intent to take a picture of Willy and Patrick, but Willy does not pose.  He is in almost constant motion, including his tail, which appears as a blur in this photo.  Patrick looks vaguely disgusted.  Their relationship is mirrored perfectly.  Benny, typically as well, is elsewhere.

I must admit, looking at this makes me laugh. Willy is really a cute boy.

Momentarily Resurfacing as an Artist

I have been so preoccupied by my legal situation I've not felt like painting.  Today, though, I was inspired by a photo I saw in TIME magazine to do this.  It's about of my Yupo things.  I'm as happy with it as I can be considering that art seems pretty irrelevant in the face of what appears to be the impending loss of everything I, house, dogs, chickens, car, etc.  I have always been well-meaning and trusting, so the biggest loss will be my faith in humanity as a whole.  At this point I have only become numb, incredulous.  This immobilizes me.  I can't find my way out of my own disbelief.
