Going With The Flow

July9


Why Not Go With The Flow?

I’m the black sheep of the family.
I am not a substance abuser, alcoholic or drug dealer.
I’m not a thief, fence, fraudster, gun dealer or bank robber. Read the rest of this entry »

Awesome!

Awesome

Reflection, shared giggles, and dimples.
Rose petals, snowed and fragrant fall on her head.
Tomatoes straight from the vine, exploding with flavor and juice.

Amidst The Palette

July7

Have you ever been bored looking at perfectionist, somewhat predictable art which just fails to draw you in, fails to connect, fails to transport you anywhere?

Donna Williams’ August 2011 Art-Not-Cancer Art Sale

August10
