Art Is Happening Now!  - 
 
I have all my public art on Pinterest boards now, with links back to my site...it's a great way to view it, though I can't say it's all abstract.

Nice words, and perhaps a testament to the endurance of love through the loving memories?
 
I Think that the
Only Reason Why
People Hold onto
Memories so Tight,
For so Long is
Because
Memories are the
Only Things that
Don't Change
Even When
*People*do.

This isn't quite finished, but very close. It's called "Clearing the Table", partly because of the upside down pool table in the top right corner.

I suppose with the water underneath, in the background, one might consider this a "pool haul"?

Yeah, I can kind of see how it ends, and it does feel pretty special, kind of like a lotus making waves just by being there?

This is my latest, called "Clearing The Table". It's late and I'm tired and lazy, so I won't be saying anything about it, at least for now.
