And I am interested - ocean trash has come up in the Trashpo group before.
I don't remember the beaches in Maine being too awful. I remember walking the beaches outside Boston and the daily layer of garbage and refuse from the tides being so gross I nearly puked. Acquatic Trashpo, Hydro Trashpo, TrashPO-ceanic - this is probably really important.
Hi Rebecca, if you want to unveil it, I would think you'd get the most useful response from the artists in the Trashpo group. I am working on "Trashpo Jesus" for the Elgin show and am excited about that too.
I am glad you liked it and I wish you a great success with the show, I don't know what is wrong with my server but the Internet Gods do not let me go to your blog. I will come back later, I would love to see the show so far.
Guess UK posting is not possible for you at the moment but fyi...

Hello Rebecca. Thank you for the precious dog postcard with the story about your escape Lyra. She sounds like a character! Snooky is a little bit of an escape dog - he'll dash out the door but then stop and wait for you to let him either into the car or to go for a walk. If there's a squirrel nearby, I think he'd climb up a tree after them.
