hang in there, baby

Tornadoes and blizzards and rain where it never rains...oh, my! 
Stay safe out there. Hang on tight, snuggle up and carry a cute umbrella.

happy thanksgiving!

 
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: 
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

when you wish upon a star


My dream came true!
Thanks, Mom and Dad, for the crayons, markers, colored pencils and finger paint, and for believing that I was the best artist in the whole world! Thank you, Eileen Jelly Bean, for leftover computer paper you brought home from college!

Thank you to my assistant and best sister, Sharie. When I was playing National Geographic with my stuffed animals underneath a pine tree and sorting my old crayons by hue, you were playing with your baby-dolls and programming the family VCR. See how life turns out?
And a special thank you to YOU fabulous art collectors and art enthusiasts. I couldn't have my dream job without you!

Paris, je t'aime

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt? 
it answered 
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere
