December 27, 2015 - I will take full credit for popularizing the acronym SSP (Shameless Self-Promotion) in the Eternal Network. Now I will introduce SEAA (Shameless Exploitation of Another Artist) by posting this blog of work by Richard Canard in the wake of THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. Richard Canard’s work will be featured in an exhibition with Ray Johnson and Bob Ray at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art:

I am sure this recent boost in Richard Canard’s stature will translate into more than the usual interest in his work when I blog it. These two pieces, after all, are clearly Richard C. classics.

And the reverse:

Many thanks to Richard C and congratulations!

27.12.15 Dare De Villo Sloan, ... "MOTOMCO" ... "moticos" (?).........yes, the Lord works in mysterious ways. ...proof positive there is a glitch somewhere in the system ...You never know what will happen-- you can indeed win the lottery ...  every dog has his day ... a renewed faith in the kindness of friends & strangers. ......Thank you for all your attentions & thanx to Ms. Lucky Pierre ( I thought you were gonna pop up in Seattle?) & Thanx to Ms. Angelica Paez. ....I am somewhat embarrassed about all this ( still riding after all these years in the wake of Ray Johnson ) & clearly indebted to all (everywhere I turn). Best to you. Richard C.
