IF I was having my normal life as an artist. On this day, Wednesday 03/25/2020, I'd be posting exciting new art happenings. I'd be sharing what's next and what to look forward to.
But then Corona-19 Virus found us. ALL OF US.
March started to cancel itself, it then unraveled and basically disappeared. "Wow. ALL of March is canceled." The last two weeks have been a blur of the same really...and now it looks as if April and May is pretty much cancelled too.
To make sense of it, for me and my work, I thought I'd check into what just happened.

Of course I know of and follow and appreciate many more establishments. These mentioned are however dear or close to my heart.
I don't have a place where I SELL my art. I HAVE TOO MUCH TO SELL. I am a prolific high volume maker.
My website is a portfolio and working space for me. MOST items that I sell are in the moment when I post something. either something current that I just made on Instagram/FB Or when I share retro work each Thursday on FB.
It happens just like that. someone will see something and message me. "I want that"
Find and follow me on Instagram
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
