Like so many things in my life, this funny little art project started out as an abstract experiment; but after several failed disasters, morphed into something rather different than I had originally envisioned. It’s almost like my subconscious is deliberately controlling my every move, without bothering to let me in on the rhyme or reason or final objective (which, I suppose, is the very definition of “subconscious”). Unless, of course, you consider this an obvious sign from my supposedly stealthy brain: Yes, […]
Another ‘experiment’ in art: wax on glass. A combination of birthday candles, crayons, and miscellaneous candle wax melted onto found glass. The glass, in fact, just happens to be a former window pane from my old 1920’s/1930’s apartment.

And to many more Friday the 13ths!

For those with heat-resistant genetics, and the ability to both cut past traffic in a BMW convertible and simultaneously employ their preferred middle finger… Los Angeles can be a truly magical place. Myself? I chose to stay indoors and cope by embracing the colorless void of my Viking-blood heritage. Or rather, in a much less dramatic […]
