"Charlie" 14x16" oil





The above portrait didn't photograph well because it's so wet. The greens seem to reflect light a lot...and not in a good way, in this case.



"Aubrey" 14x16" oil





I got to spend some time working for Paula Manning-Lewis at the Chroma Gallery today. It was a fine day! Blue skies, warm sunshine and the birds were singing. Who could ask for more in… Continue

Red Cross Won't Help Haiti

The world is donating money in small quantities to organizations like American Red Cross, but it MUST be realized that donations for a disaster like this present one in Haiti go into the books for fiscal year 2010, and that of the yearly budget, a large amount that I estimate at 50% of their operating budget goes into ADVERTISING. Maybe I’m wrong, but the way that I see it, for every dollar that you donate to ARC, 50 cents goes to yearly advertising, and a small slice goes to relief efforts… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Life's blind spot?"

From Two Whos: Just like her contact lens mysteriously disappeared from her hand (for the original event, see previous post), it reappeared magically several days later right in front of Yun’s eyes. It was almost like a magic trick! Now you see it, now you don’t!



It was New Years Day, 2010. Yun was doing the house cleaning. Bending slightly over her sink trying to wipe off the stain behind the faucet, and VOILA! There was her lost… Continue

Haiti is about to REALLY suck

Two days ago, on January 12th, 2010, grain prices took a tumble. There is at this very moment a surplus on Wheat, soybean, and corn. Corn tumbled 30 cents to $3.925/Bushel (Roughly $160 a ton). Soybeans plummeted 32 cents a bushel to end the day at about $400 a ton. Wheat dropped 6.4% to land at about $215 a ton. Just about everyone in the world eats these grains every day, and would you know that the ancestors of all wheat now eaten were first grown near a fascinating little place called… Continue

Kicking off 10 Years of Revolutions

In about 7 hours I'll be premiering a new one-man show, "Four Interludes". It's at least the fourth solo show I've "Excavated" within the past ten years during the Revolutions International Theatre Festival... and probably my favorite so far.



It's the most honest I've been as an actor, writer or artist in a LONG while. It's kinda scary. But then, isn't that the point? To challenge myself, to look deeper into myself, to share something with the world? That's what we do as artists. And… Continue

How the Very First Americans Traveled

The very first humans who traveled to the North American continent may have been here as early as 18,000 years ago. But what route did they take and did they leave any physical evidence of their journey?



James Dixon, the director of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology at UNM spends part of his summers in the glaciers of Alaska, looking for evidence of early man. He will be talking about his experiences on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. in Room 105 of the Hibben Building on the UNM Main… Continue

The Spirit of Cooperation

I’ve been thinking a lot about cooperation lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’ve been watching the lack of cooperation in Congress and am hoping for better.



Whatever the roots, my thoughts tend toward the performing arts. Artists are known for their egos and their temperaments, but what they should be known for instead is their cooperative attitude, especially those in the performing arts. Yes, there are those whose egos become impediments to cooperation, but most performers I’ve… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "I do not wear anything"

From Two Whos:

Yun went shopping over the weekend. More accurately, Yun accompanied one of her friends shopping. Knowing that Yun is not a shopper, nor beauty salon visitor, Cece was excited for her: “Good for you! Have Fun!” Yun was a little apprehensive: “Yeah!” This sounded suspiciously like Cece’s excitement over the SEO!



Yun stepped into the Dillard with her friend who had the intention to buy a pair of pajamas, a pair of shoes, and… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Calibrate your Food, Calibrate your Thoughts"

From the Two Whos



Sometimes, You do not Know Something is Wrong, until you know that Something is Wrong!”



Cece has lost a lot of weight and is meticulous about her meal planning. She uses a nutritional program and plans her menu every day. This includes weighing and measuring her food when she is home. As you may remember from a previous post, Cece has been looking at all kinds of variables to explain why she… Continue

I Resolve to Evolve



My lovely machine (to me, anyway) stands neglected. I haven't ridden in over a month and this galls me every time I look at it. Look at it's headlights. See that glint of reproof? Meant for me and only me, muchachos y muchachas.



Perhaps I should state here and now my intentions for this new year? Public humiliation as a punishment for failure is a great motivator, non?

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Singing in the Rain, Dancing in the Downpour!"

From the Two Whos



There is a saying, “ When it Rains, It Pours.” For Yun, it has every truth in it.



After the Saturday fiasco, (see “I am not Guilty”), Yun is back to her normal self, productive and happy. However, it is as if there is an after quake for her emotional storm. Yun’s life is full of ‘events’. She has had quite an eventful “day after” with one thing going out of order after… Continue
