Magic Mentor

Yikes! I’m leaving this week - the Bloomington, Illinois, “Mentor and Student” Opening Reception is Friday, September 9 from 5-7PM. And, I’m flying out just in time to be there! It’s a thrill to be exhibiting with Dennis and the other graduate students. Wait, I’ve forgotten to introduce Dennis...

It Smells Like Whiskey Here?!!

I'll be here showing off my model chandelier and enjoying stories. Join us! When Kim came to me asking if I would put together an art installation for the Townies, I was incredulous. Really? It’s such an honor to be considered let alone to be selected. Oh, what are the Townies? A fabulous Ojai...

It’s November?!!

We’re into November already! What, whoa, hold on! How did that happen? Wait, that means wonderful food which I love, especially with Keith, the chef extraordinaire in the household. Can’t you just smell the turkey roasting in the oven? And don’t get me started on the apple pie that’s in the near...
