The orange and indigo fish complete my rainbow betta fish project. These pieces are currently hanging at Casciano in Hammonton.

I am alive, but it was a close call. Due to a kidney ordeal and an emergency c-section, I spent some time in the hospital. We also bought a new house. My scanner is missing in some yet to be opened box. When it rains, it pours I guess.
No new art, due to missing scanner. BUT I am selling at a new venue. My Etsy shop is still running. Now I also sell at Reddit Gifts! My first month on Reddit Gifts was very lucrative. I hope for a bright future.
‘You Broke Reddit’ print available here!

The Great Bay Art Gallery’s summer show is opening this evening. The reception is 5-8pm. I’m honored to be one of the twenty something artists and poets participating in the invitation only exhibition. Each artist or poet was assigned one of Somers Point’s allies. We each created art or poetry about the alley. Our focus was to find beauty in decay. The alley I was assigned was Miller Lane, the closest alley to the gallery. Here are the watercolor paintings I created on site this summer:
Green Bins. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 5″
Purple Bins. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 5″.
Sun Kissed. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 7″
And my least “Wabi-Sabi” of the four:
A Glance Down Miller Lane. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 7″.
I’m interrupting the seven deadly sins project for a very sad announcement. Earlier this week, Dorothea Tanning died at the age of one hundred and one. She was a founding member of the surrealist movement. She was an influential in the art world for eight decades. I do not say this lightly, she is my favorite artist of all time. The world is a little less beautiful without her.
Thank you, Dorothea, for doing what you did.

My freedom to express myself is precious. Today, I closed my Etsy shop and stayed off Twitter. I was a proud participant of the blackout to protest SOPA and PIPA. Other participants were Google, Reddit, Etsy, Pinterest, Imgur, WordPress, and Wikipedia. This is a big deal. The Internet is very important to my career. If these bills pass, I will no longer be able to show my work directly to my audience. If you’ve been following my blog for the past few years, you know I feel the Internet is the creative person’s best friend. Please take a moment to sign this petition. If you have a couple minutes, call your Senators. Our freedom of speech is at stake.
