Very good, Ed. You've hit the triumvirate this past couple of week: Hope, faith and charity.

And with your many Bush posts, you've (perhaps inadvertenly) covered the seven deadly sins.

Any chance you'll tackle the nine circles of hell?

Happy First Day!

Not to be a killjoy, but isn't the Hope diamond supposed to be cursed?

Perhaps the curse is countered with an Obama pin? :-)

Happy New Year All!

I have the greatest Cold. Grrr.

Strangely I always found the sculpture of Le Désespoir (Despair) more compelling. I forgot who did the original, but there's one by Rodin and others. The one where some guy holds his foot up? One of my fave sculpture ever. But you know, it's just art...


Cheers!!

I know that issue really matter,
but I love to see people moving my painting all the way in many directions, sometimes is like if the painting was 4 paintings,,, Anyway
I gave to my brother one of my paintings wasn't abstract but every week he change the perspective,

I was in a art fair last year and I checked one photography of a south American artist, he got totally pissed because I was looking upside down. I though his photo was much better that way. He almost had a seizure in from of me( I'm not kidding!)

Maybe there's something unusual in my brain.

Your blog is da bomb( good bomb!)
