The Making of “Battle Cry”

November 24, 2006

First comes a trip to the “Bone Yard” as I call it. I live on a ranch, and any animal carcasses are dumped in a corner of one of the fields. My problem is matching up and identifying the bones. There are so many of them, and all sizes and kinds. Pretty gruesome. My first […]

Wild New Sculpture, “Father Time”

October 24, 2006

We have all seen “Father Time” represented as an kindly, old man with a long beard. My version of “Father Time” is not so gentle and kind looking. I wanted to illustrate time in relation to space. Time as infinity, yet time as short, with teeth. Wake up! Get going, before time bites you in […]

New Pieces – Sculptures

October 8, 2006

This is something really new for me, sculptures! It all started with a visit to Firedworks Gallery. The owner saw my 4″ faux turquoise cross necklace and asked if I could make the same thing only larger. “Of course I can” I boasted. Did I stick my foot in it or what? After a couple […]

The Big Move- part 4, Yahoo, Colorado!

August 4, 2006

I decide not to stress the old truck’s transmission pulling the trailer over Raton Pass, and detour North. Turned out to be a good plan, as I later heard that Raton Pass is closed due to smoke. I take a rarely used back road to Walsenburg. Didn’t see another car the whole way, so I […]

The Big Move – part 3

July 25, 2006

The air changes too, I no longer need the air conditioner to fight the summer humidity. The air is drier, and clearer. […]

The Big Move – part 2

July 6, 2006

Driving from sun up to sun down and sleeping in my truck at rest stops, was a whole new experience. Truthfully, it wasn’t that bad. I met some nice people, learned that there are a lot of women driving 18 wheelers, and found endless photographic opportunities. I found that I could steer the truck with […]

The Big Move – part 1

June 30, 2006

After many months of preparation and planning, I left Florida and moved back West. I had not been looking forward to hauling a trailer 2400 miles. The idea of driving cross country, alone with no one but myself, to get me out of a jam, intimidated me. I had never towed anything before, and my […]

New E-Commerce Website in Progress

June 1, 2006

I have been looking for an alternative to the steep eBay fees involved in having a store, and listing auctions. Many of my fellow eBay Artists will relate to this situation. What to do? Hummm…maybe my own e-commerce website. I had no idea how much work was required to create a full-blown shopping cart website, […]
