One morning, while driving to visit my husband at the nursing home, I noticed a huge crowd at the Civic Center. Cars had filled both parking lots and spilled over into adjacent fields and on to the streets. I looked at the marquee which read: “GUN SHOW.” I slowed down and noticed a man withContinue reading “Guns, Guns, and more Guns”
Hidden away in the corner of my studio is a large Plexiglas cube with a gas mask inside. To explain about this artwork, one has to look back to the first President Bush and the first Gulf War, called “Operation Desert Storm”. After Iraq invaded Kuwait, a coalition of countries and the United States, invadedContinue reading “The Gulf War”
Our son once took a trip to Australia. He brought back many photos, including one of Ayers Rock.

This artwork called “Still-life at 3 AM” was a result of being in pain. When I was in my late 30’s, I began to have more and more pain, especially at night in my legs. That made getting a good night’s sleep almost impossible. I have always been a “sensitive” type, cutting labels out ofContinue reading “Fibromyalgia”
