Meanwhile in FataGagaVille, Miro', Chagall & Dali relished their requisite Mushroom Mind Meld at 2 o'clock tea...  /  Always good to pay homage to the Dons of Dada & Surrealism, with bright new twists.  This would be a perfect LP album cover, one you could stare at wantonly for an hour on a summer's eve, while sipping Mendocino Malbec & absorbing some hot jazz fusion.  Since the mission of all good art is first to evoke -- even puzzling whimsy -- then Mission Accomplished.  For me, the nerve center of this piece is the shy critter peeking out of that green wormhole, sizing up his gently mad new universe.  And, true to Surrealist Creed, of course any  center of anything  belongs tucked way back deep into a corner. /  Loved this piece.  Hope to see more from Marcel soon.   -- JH

My mother Elizabeth Sloan Tyler September 9, 1918 - to April 16, 2015
My best friend; my life-long mentor and biggest advocate: "I love this earth. I don't want to leave it."
And she fought very hard not to leave it, to the very end, early yesterday morning.
Her reverence for this earth and genuine awe at all its wonders, and all of the nuances of the natural world, in its lights and shadows... she evoked in her painting and drawings.
Here, one of my favorite pictures of her – sketching on a trip we took to Italy together in 1996. I was sketching along side her in the next doorway. I remember the scratch of our pens as we were sketching the same street view, trying to capture it before it began to rain.
Mom. Mommy. You have left my heart broken. But I know where to seek you: in the all the moods of the sky. Because every time I look up and see the sky in all its changing colors, I will hear you exclaim: "Oh just look at that! Look!"

There are times when I hit a creative block...like everyone does. I've learned to try not to fret about this and to be patient. Most times this works. As of late I've had one of those blocks, until I

Interesting take on the Digital vs. the old fashioned negative: http://thewoventalepress.net/2015/04/09/the-digital-photo-in-the-raw/
I'm allowing myself here a small vent: If there is one thing that makes me mount the beast, is showing my photos to someone for the first time and hearing : “Hey, but you…. Photoshopped them!

Sandra, welcome back to the Land of Sun & Sound.  We all missed you considerably, & hope you are feeling stronger, bolder, leaning into the Light more each day.
