Highway 36 in Missouri  is called the Quilt Trail, and also the Genius Trail.

This is the highway that connects St Joseph on the West, and Hannibal on the East - right on the Mississippi River. If you are in the area, many of the places have historical significance, and are worth visiting!

I am always glad for a little reminder about gems I might forget from time to time.
The real reason the Google home page is so bare is that way back when it was just starting out in a Silicon Valley garage, no one working there really knew how to program a web page to make it look pretty.

Allen & Patty Eckman's cast paper sculptures.

Their work is amazing. I love it! 

You can view a large part of their work at

Their website also includes the 2P-CAT precision paper cutting assist tool. It is the instrument they use to create all the wonderful detail.

Are you an artist? This might just be THE place for you!

August: More Than Just A Month

I'm honored to be a featured artist and excited to start sharing and consuming creative media on a different kind of platform with artists in mind - August. The idea of being able to pour out the creations of my heart and soul in a place that doesn't have ads, memes, or cat gifs pretty much makes my artist's heart soar. Sometimes you just really don't want to know what everyone is eating for lunch. Want a break from that? 

You'll be able to go to August to discover and curate inspirational art that matters to you. Artists will be able to release their valuable content to be streamed in relevant channels for easy discovery and to network meaningfully with one another and their consumers. 

Ready to immerse yourself in amazing art that you care about? Go to the August site, check out the details, and request your invitation today to sign up for the upcoming beta release! See you there. :-)
