The Girl

In front of a scene.
 I can't remember what artist painted this girl, or the era it was painted in, I can't give credit, which bothers me, but I like her a lot and had fun trying her out with different backgrounds.

I'm still having trouble, after all this time, with my ChromeBook and still regretting my decision to be frugal, and NOT get the Apple laptop. Oh well. The struggle to get images up continues.
A travel scene.

In Mexico!

Some color.

Brighter color is nice.

This deep color is nice, too.
What do you think? Should I keep going with this girl?

The possibilities are endless, to state the obvious.

Let me know what you think?

Autumn has come, finally.

On Monica's street

On Monica's street
Sweater and scarf weather finally arrived. It happens so quickly here. It seems that it's summer, oh so hot, then the next day, swoosh, leaves are falling and the scarves come out. It feels great.

Landscape Beautification Project - new series 2019


 The Landscape Beautification Project places large art works into the landscape to offer the public an unusual viewing experience.

Sometimes, it's quite disconcerting, such as the Dam project.


At times, the installation presents a monumental headache but so far there have been no fatalities amongst the installers or the viewers.

This project will continue as long as the appropriate images can be secured for specific locations.

Ah, yes, it's definitely been site specific.

If you have any suggestions as to artists or locations, feel free to contact the LBP.

"Business" cards

I decided to have some "business" cards made from some of my collages. I had a bunch of the sunglasses series and several of the butterfly hand series on a thumb drive. I took it to a local printer and look what I got!! So fun. The large image is a 4" x 6" postcard. Next time, I'll make a bunch with that image since it's one of my favorites.

I'll take these to Kolaj Fest.  I'm very excited to be going back to New Orleans, and about going to this event. I'm hoping to meet some folks with whom I've exchanged Mailart.

I've been writing a lot of postcards to get out the vote. Campaigns are listed through #postcardstovoters and are for candidates all over the country. If you're in the U.S. and interested in writing, you can join by sending an e-mail to

The portrait of me was done by the grandgirl while at home and brought over as a gift. It wasn't from life, but from memory, she said.

I gave the grandgirl three words to write a poem from - she wrote phonetically. See if you can read it.

This view of the two buildings and the statue are sometimes the best view on my drive to Battery Park. The light hits them just right. I was driving so it was difficult to capture, and a bit dangerous, yes, I know.

Have you ever taken photos from your car while driving?
