It’s been a while since my last blog… but I have an excuse, really. My wife and I just bought and moved into a new home, and have been scrubbing it from head to toe, for eight to ten hours a day, for the last ten days. Ugh… This is a self-portrait I did of Maxine and myself after the first ten hour scrubbing session, on our very first day in our new home.
It was 731 days (leap year) ago to day that I tricked Maxine into saying I DO. Happy Anniversary, I love you. This is a photo from our trip this past March up Ramsey’s Cascade in the Great Smoky Mountains.
If you find yourself on a road trip this summer. Keep your eyes open for my work in these Art O Mat machines.

If you have not done so already please email, fax and call you Senators and Congress person to ask them to vote NO on both the House of Representatives Orphan Works bill and the Senate Orphan Works bill. Both bills are way to broad and seriously limit an artist’s right to protect their own work. Even the House bill, which is being touted as the better bill, puts the onus on the artist to register their images twice, with the Copyright Office and with a newly developed Orphan Works registry, in order to not be considered an Orphan or “abandoned” Work.
You can use the follow web sites to get information to contact you appropriate representative. I faxed, email and called my represenatives and I urge you to do the same.
