la vie vivante

May I say I was inspired?  At least, tickled pink.   Both in their nineties (I did a mini on the spot interview), Tom and Marilyn have both been widowed...multiple times.  "Yes," Marilyn says, "I do make him dress to match me."

Beautiful Losers

This is the Best Thing I've seen In So Long.

So, I'm embedding the first two youtube (of 8 available) segments here for you.  You won't regret it.  Trust me.

Birds of a Feather

Let me introduce you to a dear friend and fellow artist, educator, and woman of may talents.  Erica Jeans created these pieces (stone set in sterling; pendant, and complimenting feather and glass bead earrings), earrings from genuine peacock tail feathers purchased from a peacock breeder at the time of her egg acquisition.  She and her children have now successfully hatched baby peacocks of their own, in Pembroke, Nh.  Look forward to more art and designs by this talented female.

My latest hand made books; compilations of sketches made of musicians at the Riverwalk Cafe during open mic night.  (sept. 2010 - sept. 2011)  Paper, glue, and bound with embroidery floss.  These are gifts for the owners of the cafe, and a few regulars who've fallen under the dubious weight of my pen...
