With more apologies to whomever

Many more moons have passed since last I got my act together to post here; mea culpa, it's been busy to hectic, topped off by I'm getting forgetful about keeping up.

But, I offer you an alternative place to see what I'm thinking about; lately, I've been blogging for the on-line art magazine/site: Glasstire.com

I've posted three in the past couple of weeks and have a list of topics that keeps growing. As the weather changes to cold, I'll be writing more.

To catch up:

The exhibit and residency at Kansas State University went well. I had an opportunity to visit Lawrence friends and Tonganoxie  and Parkville family on the way back.

The Internal Revenue Service took a bunch of money from me by disallowing parts of my travel and telling me that I had to run my manufacturing differently. They threatened me with Section 183, the Hobby-Loss Challenge, but didn't really know what that entailed. Bless Roberta Applegate, the accountant of the ages, for talking the auditor down.

I managed to take possession of the house next door from the renters. The interior is stripped down to the ship-lap or studs in some places. It seems that it started life as one thing and changed, was added to, and has some termite damage.

Most importantly, I have gotten a new batch of work in progress and close to done. The exhibit at Texas A&M, Corpus Christi has been mostly packed and ready to deliver in January. Opening is January 24 2013 at 5PM in the Weill Gallery.

To finish for now, I will be posting the links to the the Glasstire blogs.

Let's be careful out there.

hey butch you can run but you can't hide.... despite the loss of some email seems I still have the link to this site..... and another chance to see whats newer.........
have to take a peek at the Glasstire blog and see whats on the minds of that group......
guess I been following the path of the more 'graphic' abstracts of late seeking stimulus for my FG stuff......
finding the 'minimal landscapes' some of the more stimulating work, finding pieces right on the edge of pure abstract versus minimal landscapes the most appealing..... getting there creatively still a challenge....... old habits die hard and mostly stuck with too much realist details..... onward
