Hey FatSprat!!!!!!!!!! Are you floating away? Are you and yours safe??? I have two new pieces, a reversible alley mural, up in 'new trouble' gallery. hope you are safe and sound and clicking away.


Oh good! You are still on the planet, FatSprat! Can't wait to see your new ceramics. It sounds like you are in some kind of art-y transition, go with it! Exciting things ahead for you. The Muse has been having fun with me this year, I am painting more and better than in the past. Currently obsessed with ellipses and reflections. Glad you enjoyed my garden art...you would take some interesting photo's in my courtyard. I have many found objects hanging around...and love it when they speak to me and put themselves with other things. What to do with 30 rusticated railroad spikes? A mobile? Wish I had an acetylene torch (and knew how to use it)..welding them together in a weird way sounds interesting. You and the Autumn here have reminded me to carve out a print but, nothing is springing to mind yet. Although, I should have another try at making a female Tiki. I have been unsuccessful in the past but, still think a female Tiki would be fun. OK, the Muse is here and I will make some drawings...and will send the Tiki mate along if she appears.

I like the leg of the Eiffel Tower. I used to live nearby for 6 months, and I never went up it, even when it was free. It is best seen in mist! The Japanese say that about Fuji - a lovely aesthetics.


Thanks Robbie, have had a block on inspiration lately but just taking off again so hope to have some new stuff posted soon.


I love your humor and your biewpoint. Keep up the excellent work. Best regards, Robbie.


I found a picture of the tiki in an old library book. They said it was from the Cook Islands. I'll be glad to send you a print gratis, FatSprat, or a T if I ever get around to printing T's.
