For the past week I’ve been coasting through one of those familiar periods when nothing appeals less to me than picking up a brush or pencil and confronting a blank canvas or board. I have learned long ago to recognize the ebb and flow of the work of making art and am comfrotable waiting for the muses to return. Usually I can find enough “desk work” to keep me busy. The past several days have been spent putting together a small portfolio of my work for a dear friend who will soon be moving to San Diego.

Harvey, about whom I will have more to say later, has been working with me in the studio for the past 3-4 years doing what he does best...creating awesome mixed media art with his special flair for design. Using discarded clay mono types of mine, he created a wonderful line of one of kind greeting cards that eventually expanded into more elaborate work. Here are a few examples of his work:

He has been there 3-4 years? On the same chair? How much Jeanie pays for the adult day care? How are things going, MR. Bill?
