facebook and beef


i finally sucked it up and did a facebook page.  this is a bit unsettling for me.  i am a pretty private person, and putting out all that information for everyone to see is hard.  but i figured that since i have websites, a blog, and an etsy shop, it couldn't be so bad.  i guess in this day and age if someone wants to find out all about you, they can easily get the info, even if you aren't on facebook.  besides, since the end of the world is only 2 days away, my information really doesn't matter, does it?  it's been interesting, this facebook thing.  it really makes one think about how we are all really connected.  my goal with facebook is to renew some lost friendships (some good, some not so good) and to find some great art. oh, and hopefully others will find my art! 

 i think when you are nearing 50, as i am, something pulls you to bring back the people who made you who you are.  and that means welcoming the people you were good to, and making amends to the ones you weren't.  i have several in both categories.  so if you are one of those people on either side of the line, let me know how you are.  i am a pretty nice person now that i have grown up and know how to act (most of the time).  

okay, now on to the beef section of this post.  above is a new print.  it's on a half-sheet of 90 lb. hot pressed watercolor paper.  printed using oil-based block printing ink in lots of layers.  part of my "diagram" series for the show at shy rabbit in october.  would love some feedback.  and i can take it if you don't like it!!  it's kinda like friendship.  you need the good with the not so good to learn how to act.
