An X-Ray of My Heart and a Flash by Ralph Steiner

“…the reason you show someone a photograph is because a photograph is part of a human being — you — and as people we’re more interested in human beings than we are in mountains. By showing a picture, you’re showing an x-ray of your heart. The very silent, marvelous American painter, Edward Hopper, put itContinue reading “An X-Ray of My Heart and a Flash by Ralph Steiner”

Summer, 2012 Nasturtium, iphoto and a riff of Ronee Blakley

“…she traveled alone. It’s a good journey, she thought, a continuing worthwhile journey – she hadn’t arrived anywhere, but she wasn’t done yet and that’s the way it had always been and that’s the way she liked it. There was no other way.” ~ Ronee Blakley

An iphoto from last summer and a flash of Jack Kerouac

“I spent my entire youth writing slowly with revisions and endless rehashing speculation and deleting and got so I was writing one sentence a day and the sentence had no FEELING. Goddamn it, FEELING is what I like in art, not CRAFTINESS and the hiding of feelings.” ~Jack Kerouac

It is the unloveable who need yourContinue reading “Bliss for Breakfast…”

Poppies Make Me Cray Cray

I am trying to edit down around 20,000 iPhone photos for my April show at the Cherry Branch Gallery. All is going well (at 4 in the morning) until I get to the hundreds (thousands?) of Poppy pictures I took last summer. I am obsessed with my Poppies. I get why people boil them downContinue reading “Poppies Make Me Cray Cray”

Squash Blossom Party

My garden is a bit haphazard, true to my ADD nature. First, I started out with great plans but ended up throwing seeds where they might land, forgetting where they were planted, watering everything I could in hopes that they would remember what I had set them out to do. I over planted tomatoes andContinue reading “Squash Blossom Party”

Good Morning, CNY!
