Flooding Waters Bring Good Driftwoods

May 23, 2011

Lake Champlain has been over flood level for some weeks now. There are tons and tons of interesting debris to pick through along its shores.

I’ve taken a few pieces from previous years and done light staining with watered down acrylic paint. Hate to think that I’ve been hoarding it; sometimes it seems that I have to have an overflow of a given resource, in this case the driftwood, in order to freely put pieces into play.


New Show, V E R Y Old Artworks

March 31, 2011

Currently hanging a show at the brand new CCV building in Winooski. It’s going to be a look back to some works from the 80’s and 90’s, a couple of which have not seen the light of day in a decade or more!

Please Read Me– collage, 1990, approximately 53″x54″ (click on image for better version)


Birds Are Falling

January 12, 2011

Disturbing enough to know that the strange phenomenon was not limited to one location in Arkansas.

Birds Are Falling — collage on paper, 18 x 24, Click on image for better version

But this still unexplained strangeness, along with many other dire and gruesome events last week, were eclipsed by the action of one deranged individual in Tucson on Saturday.

The shooting event at an Arizona shopping mall has consumed us. Our national fixation on guns and gun control is inflamed. And, we are given a concrete focus for our free-floating sense of urgency, where to solve the mystery of the shooter’s motive and put him away for life or even kill him, will somehow magically fulfill an unspoken moral imperative.

Many jump the gun and assign  political intent to the shooter’s action.  Many place blame for the violence of this action on the usual suspects: the raging radio talk hosts, the barely veiled rage in a vast range of pundit hacks, the rage in the shooter’s own head, the rage in the gun itself, or its peripherals (raging magazines).

There is a lot of rage in the world today, and mental illness. It is disturbing that so many people thought this guy was a ticking time bomb, yet nothing stopped him from pulling off the horrible massacre Saturday.


Paper or Plastic?

December 28, 2010

For many of us, this question is the deepest philosophical issue we confront on a daily basis. My local market offers a 5 cent incentive to forgo the bag altogether.

Carrying things is nowhere accomplished so elegantly as through the Mercado in Granada, Nicaragua, where anything you can imagine that needs carrying is carried on the head. Headloading apparently requires far less energy expenditure than say carrying the same weight in front or even in a back pack.

This acrylic painting was inspired by memories of Granada and done in the Correctional Center with the students.


Sunshine and Blue Sky in #BTV!

December 19, 2010

Not to be taken by surprise, I have acted as if I always knew we would see a day like this again sometime.

So I photographed a few things with a borrowed camera. I’m starting to recognize the need for a higher rez camera, if I want to be more savvy about online sales possibilities.

I almost can’t stand the idea of another research project right now, that is, the necessary investigation I will need to do before making a camera selection. COULD SOMEONE JUST TELL ME WHAT TO BUY PLEASE?
