Prepping for an Art Show – Framing

As I am prepping for my first art show, I decided to jump into the world of Periscope with my first broadcast on framing.   To say I was nervous was an understatement! So nervous apparently that I forgot to put the hashtag in the title so that I could katch it.  Lesson learned.  Well…

A Sort of Homecoming

As I got into my vehicle to leave the local hospital, plugged my mp3 player into the stereo and hit play. The sounds of A Sort of Homecoming by U2 began filling the air.  “How appropriate!” I thought to myself as I began to sing the words I know by heart. You see, this morning…

Last Days of Summer

How do I get stress relief the last days of summer? By grabbing my gear and heading into Joshua Tree National Park, where the streets have no name. Oh yes, and I have U2’s Joshua Tree album playing as well. That’s exactly what I did earlier this week.  I was extremely frustrated with my computer…
