Acrylic on poplar 3 1/2 X 3 1/2

bird brain is a good thing: it means that you can fly; my new art is 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 on poplar. Acrylics and ink; some thread; some bobbles.

Paul Newman

I did not know him. Like everyone else, I knew his films, his love for race-cars and practical jokes. I knew that he was married to Joanne Woodward for fifty-plus years. I knew his charity work, his Newman-O's, better than Oreo's--and his popcorn and spaghetti sauce. I knew him as Butch Cassidy and the sultry Brick from CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF. I loved him. He was on my "to do" list--the one you have with your spouse--that says if you ever got the opportunity... well, you get it.

I did not know Paul Newman, but when I read yesterday morning that he had passed away, I cried. I mourn his passage from this world, but one things for sure, he made his mark.

Writer's Block

Writer's Block: a myth; an insecurity; an inability to concentrate or expose one's ideas on the page. I'm talking about my ideas. I have left the computer for my black journal... to figure out where Paulo and Gloria are going this sunny hot June day, on the the solstice, a full moon ascending, Gloria and Paulo ripe with angst. Wish me time and luck to figure this out. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoooooooooooo

This Friday will be six weeks since I've heard from my literary agent--who I know is very busy, and I shan't disturb her. I will wait patiently for her feedback regarding my first 175 pages. I will keep writing and writing and writing, hoping she likes what I'm making. XOXO
