Vincent Van Gogh

I'm a Dr. Who fan from way back. Our local college TV station is now running the entire Tom Baker episodes.

But today I just happened to find a more recent Dr. Who episode where the Dr. takes Vincent to a gallery where his paintings are on display. I could just feel the wonderment in Vincent as he viewed his paintings. It gave me wonderful chills of excitement. Then the head of the gallery heaps praise upon Vincent & his work which brings tears to Vincent's eyes as well as mine.

As artists we can relate to Vincent's joy for being recognized for the work he loved.

Are you still feeling it?

Alex sez: Merry Christmas!



Here is my artistic little table-top tree decorated with watercolor ornaments.
I made the ornaments years ago for a much bigger tree, so I had to resize some of them to fit.
It's amazing what can be done with some paper & paint.

Day of the Dead


I had no specific design in mind when I decided to make this altar. I had the paper mache skulls (more about those later) & the thrift store painting to start with. I moved in some plants & lawn ornaments, flower pots & bottles & it just came together.




You can see it in person today at 1817 Southview Ave. It's in the car port. I'm not serving hot chocolate.
