12-9-19 Haven't done much painting recently because of traveling and now all the holiday preparations. Hopefully soon. Here is a picture of another one of my artforms -- dominoes. My family and I go to a lake up in the mountains every summer. The resort has a woodshop they let me use and so I [...]
12-7-19 Here is a small paragraph from the chapter about Donald Evans in Chatwin's book: IN February 1972, he packed his watercolours and a stack of perforated papers and flew to Holland where a friend had rented a cottage ' behind the dike ' ( Achterdijk ) near a village not far from Utrecht. Immediately [...]
11-25-19 If you get a chance hunt up a copy of Bruce Chatwin's book What Am I Doing Here. He has a chapter in there reviewing Eisenhart's book I mentioned in my chapter on Stamp Art i.e The World of Donald Evans. My copy puts it at page 263. Very nicely written. Wonderful to read [...]

09-11-19 A friend of mine, Peter, is headed to Iran today for a tour. He agreed to take a couple of pigeons and so I worked real hard yesterday and into the night to get 2 done. I met him this morning at his house and he got my ziplock packet. Yahoo !
8-30-19 As promised -- here is a shot of the 4th pigeon. Not sure why the legal stamp was applied upside down ? Perhaps to signal the plight of the polar bears with global warming......
Hi all -- the 4th and final pigeon made it back while I was on vacation. It is of a polar bear. Will post an image soon.
