YUYU is returning to Denver and he will be reading his new work at the gallery on March 6th. I loved his last reading so-- my expectations are high! I will be in a couple of art shows coming up. In May, I will have the annual birthday show, first Friday and this year there will be a surprise.
I will also be the featured artist in the April (5th) Crossroads artist series. I think that will involve poetry and art, and a live painting by Don Callarman. I am thinking this too shall be great fun. And two other events-- a little show in my favorite coffee house, Metropolis- also for the month of May. And finally a poetry/art group show at MacSpa. Details to follow, but I thought I'd write all this down before I forget.

I was thinking about the millions and millions jasper johns could get for a painting, such a strange thing, there seems to be that "art" value and no middle ground,painters raking in
more than basketball stars, i like the concept of that and think it interesting that popes and millionaires collect the art, and the masses collect the sports games. I guess paintings can get big, but only scale counts. Got some new sculptures coming up perhaps i'll take pics tonight, check out the wood bases, amazing grains. the language of necessity. Check out the working poets reading at the gallery Saturday the 19th around 7 pm. Who reads this? Rauchenberg said "you have to have time to feel sorry for yourself if you are going to be a good abstractionist."

and these are the photos of the evenings work and a recent piece back from the foundry


in my second blog i was reading Newman- Aesthetics is for the artist as ornithology is for the birds-
only i think i misquoted and said criticism, anyway-- i think tonight i shall attempt a thoughtless painting . pure emotion-- or rather just one square of it within some orderly type set of squares-- one square of pure emotion inside squared walls -- is that the heart? okay off to paint and i will in this blog with and upload of the result.
