I certainly can get a few 'nice' shots in my neighbourhood, Diane. For 'nice' read disgusting. I am going to your blog now for inspiration. Thank you for including my trash in the compilation for the Karnival and thanks to DVS for posting it here.

Diane Keys sent a contribution to the Karnival of Trash call that includes work by other artists: Jack Lattemann, Mail Art Martha, Katerina Nikoltsou, Jim Leftwich and Richard Canard. I have included these pieces in the documentation, so thank you for your participation even if you never intended to be part of the Karnival of Trash.

I don't know what all this is about but both DVS and DK are my friends and i am very sad. Is this something that happened in FB? I joined FB for about 3 weeks if that long and found it lacking in everything, colour, flexibility. In short the site is boring. On top of that they had been reporting false 'news' so I left. I am double glad I did now. FB cannot compete with IUOMA. 

Comment by Dan Mouer on December 7, 2016 at 10:42pm


DK is right. TrashPo makes no sense without your involvement. Try to grow a thicker skin. Facebook is what it is, but you don't have to play along with everyone just because they're there. ;-}
