I love how every picture I take is my obsession until I take another…
The true value in the moment-how paramount the present is in preference.
“One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure”
I have been posting a picture almost every day for the past month in my facebook album, “Quarendo Invenietis,” and put them all together in a collage.
Top Row, from Left to Right: “Self Portrait;” “Moonwalking with Einstein;” “Max;” “Lovely Liati.”
Second Row, from Left to Right: “Here Comes The Sun;” “Bench Warmer;” “Bunny & Me;” “Spank.”
Third Row, from Left to Right: ”Out Of The Blue;” “She’s Got A Ticket To Ride;” “Funny Bunny;” “Young Blood.”
Fourth Row, from Left to Right: ”Naptime;” “One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure;” “Kate Is Great;” “Good Morning.”
Final Row, from Left to Right: “Kiddie Cam;” “Mirror Image;” “G;” “Just Throw It In The Bag.”
Savvy? Photo-pirating never looked better. I felt like I was in the Sistine Chapel, the dark-suited guards “shhhhh”ing and sternly telling us not to take pictures.
Obviously, I took pictures.
It was vast and visceral. || Austere and whimsical.
One thing’s for sure: I felt, as an artist, the struggle of an artist. I find it especially profound that people accept the art in adornment; and, in that, the subject transcends its own object and breaks into something more elaborate, potent, essential.
I have hardly the words to describe how I felt about it, but I emerged with a few pictures, to say the least. I’ll suffice in cashing them in for the words I cannot articulate.

“Time is Ticking” (penultimate image; below) has a pejorative intruding the overall message of positivity that I mean to convey in my couplet.
*And I shall name thee, “Sexy Time.”
My five-minute-musings / digi-doodle inspired by Serra.
Having seen it about a month ago, I left and said to Max, “I’d have done it in hot pink.”
So I did.
