can’t see past my crooked nose

Sometimes I have days when I seriously think that everything and everyone is rotten.. well everything about me is anyway and then of course with that mind set turned inward I let me harass myself for perhaps longer then is good or necessary.

There is an artist, Susan Mrosek who has the most amazing pieces, they are available in cards (I have one at my desk framed) and posters. Anyway there isn’t much that can lift one of my funks but her cards sometimes help just a bit, and even if they don’t lift the funk, they have the ability to make me look a bit outside of my own head and see things with less doom and a bit more whimsy, as it should be.


Today I think this card fits my black mood, and it does make me feel as if at least if I am horrid perhaps being imperfect isn’t the most horrid thing that could be. Please go check out her work at:

the Pondering Pool it’s wonderful even, maybe especially, when you aren’t

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
