Red Series No. 2 - 10
I am full up.  I have spent the last three days in Newport, Oregon attending book arts and paper making workshops.  It has been so much fun but I am tired.  You know what it is like taking classes away from home.  You even know what it is like taking classes near your home.  You are tired.  I am but I made two books and a bunch of papers, learning a bunch of new tcchniques.  So yes, I am full.

I am in seventh heaven this weekend as I am attending the Newport Paper and Book Arts Festival.  I am taking two workshops, one on tacket binding and a paper painting one.  So far I am batting 100 in the tacket workshop.  What is not to like when one gets to be by the ocean for four days and make books. :-). Happy weekend.

Vampire Waltz (music video) - strange title but interesting to watch....

Sometimes a creation is just playful.   This one is just that for me.

The woman who gave me most of the photos in the series had no idea about the subject matter or who took the photos.  So they now have a second life and everyone is free to make up their own story about what they are about.  I have my idea.  What is yours?

What is the connection between the elements in this piece?  Maybe nothing?  Maybe something?  It is up to the viewer to decide.  Creating your own narrative is the fun part!


I use to go the movies all the time.  I was kind of obsessed with going.  I do not go any more.  I wait until the films are out on DVD or I stream them.  Hence I watch fewer films than I did.  The main reason(s) that I wait is because of the expense.  It is hard to justify the price these days when in just a few short months I can watch them in the comfort of my own home.  We have a rather large television screen and it is so easy to stream them into our home.  One other reason is that I started falling asleep in the movie theater.  I just could not justify the expensive sleeping chair! :-)  Aging here!

I have a list of films that I want to see.....

La La Land
The Red Turtle
20th Century Women
Hidden Figures
Manchester By the Sea
The Salesman
