Broken Scanner

I Have been receiving wonderful M.A. from artists all over the past week or so and I was hoping to get it all scanned and thank everyone this weekend. My scanner seems to be stuck. It lights up bup the light doesn't move. I hope I can get it repaired but doubt that. ANYWAY>>>>>I have people to thank:

Elaine The Librarian sent a wonderful piece about her first typewriter. Typed with transparent colorful keys over the typing. And the words "tap...tap...tap".… Continue

Sir Erni sent me a Gift

Well I tried to scan it but didn't come out. Erni made this wonderful assemblage box for me. It has the Erni trademark bright colors. He gets his green and yellow by inserting a sponge in the box. It goes on like that. In the box is a cut out statement "Karmic Management". Also "Lost in Repression?...just control yourself". HE even sent along candy for me to eat while I'm looking at it. What a friend you are Erni....Thank you! Oh yeah, is Grigori with you?

From South Africa....Cheryl Penn's Art

I've been looking forward to getting mail from Cheryl. She sent me a note with the piece but I very often can't read cursive so you guys can have at it, I love pieces with fiber a lot. always have. That's probably why I put cords on many of my own works.Cheryl's piece is about Pollack and IS wonderful!

Received from Grigori Antonin

Great work Grigori! I love the colors. I'm no longer a Sloanist though. I confessed my sins at Chursh an went back to being a Lutheran. But I know the movement is growing every day..

Received from Katerina Nikoltsou

Wonder moody watercolors which my husband tried to steal! Rain's Coming...the tall piece, Winter coming too, the other. I love these pieces because I cherish watercolor but am inept at it. These pieces are so small and precious. Thank you Katerina.…

Received from John M Bennett

An incredible package of work. Beautiful full color vispo book, Zabod. Many smaller books and booklets, I think 9 or 10 in all. Such a gift. This will teach me a lot. Thank you John!

Received from Julian Grant

Thanks Julian for this mystery piece. The guy looks wasted (or wounded). The woman comforts him. But she's blue. Is she death or an angel rescueing him. AND WHO LET THOSE KIDS IN THE THEARTER! I love the black red and yellow stage setting. Great piece Julian!
