A very cool intro to the work of Frank B. Jones. Reminiscent of the early work of Larry Poons, this kinetic swarm of dancing colors looks as though it was handpainted by Mr. Jones. Quite a feat. Really amazing, Frank. Thank you.…See More

An envelope stuffed with goodies from Alicia Starr Ryan. The Widow Jane. (Not getting the reference but it doesn't matter. The picture is conjure-worthy). Love that sneer. The gun is fake as is the anger but I wouldn't mess with her either way. (Don't you love the way women in movies are never…

Suus in Mokum

Suus in Mokum sent me a packet made up of three of her musical watercolors. Of course, my relation with Suus in primarily a business one. She sends me the patterns and I help them find their way into the House of Suus collection. So far we've managed to net over 30 million. That's pixels but down the…

David, I'm glad to see that you got the card. Thanks for posting an image of it in your photos. It was painted using a hand-cut stencil. I'll try to post an image of the stencil so you can see that the work was more hand-carved than hand-painted.

Just got your card- thank you!  I've been out of the loop so long I've moved twice.  All is updated now.  Sorry I've fallen off the planet, I'm managing two galleries in NOLA and life is joyfully chaotic.  I appreciate you thinking of me!

David, I have received your epic 4 Faces of Dave in the mail today.Thank you. I especially liked the solid oak 'KENTUCKY' that dominated the front of the envelope. Well done!

I will respond with a hand-carved, if slightly less epic work of my own.
