This is just to important to talk around but I am just amazed at how my fellow citizens can ignore reality and buy into all the hype. Is it that we are afraid of the "boogey man" or is it the other thing you know the thing we will not discuss because its not "PC".
Well thats it if we can't see past all the crap its a sad day to call yourself an American, I mean are we safer with Russian bombers stationed in Venezuela? Is are hard earned money working for us when banks are collapsing? Are we better off with a weaker dollar? and of course all the CEO's are making off with huge pay days so at least we can rest assured that even though Mr. McCain can't remember how many houses he has at least he can relate with that upper 2% that so badly need those tax breaks that the other 98% will never see.
Oh fuck it, where did I get the idea that we are all supposed to be equal in this country. Maybe I should just lower my ideal by all means why should we the people of this country stand in the way of these "great Americans".
Thats it, now I will get back to work after all I still have my dream and its only going to as well as I make it go.
I hope that some you have been able to go over to SCC to take a look at the exhibit that I have hanging. I have been invited to participate in a great exhibit in Carbondale, IL so more and more the work I am doing is being accepted so that feels great I know theres a whole lot of work still to be done but never the less its always gives you a boost to be included.
Thats enough for today for now I hope we can take a dose of reality and see through this hype.

Well here we are summer is gone (once again) and the time has come to start the shame less promotion. The summer has been really good to me it has presented a lot of opportunity I have been very fortunate to be included in some great exhibits as well as receiving some important commissions. With all that said the beat goes on and there's a ton of work to be done I am continuing the 150 paintings for the open studio reception and I'm working on a proposal for an important commission, so here we go.
Some of the things I have accomplished this summer, mural for "Barrington" nursery, exhibit at OP Gallery for Latin American Art Fair (21 pieces), exhibit at Loyola University "Immigration Through Art " (3 pieces) and of course designing and producing a 11' X 32' mural at a CPS. Thats just a few things I did this past summer.
Here is a pic from the 150 new pieces I am creating for the October 24th reception at the Studio so I hope you all enjoy it.
