Hello Summer: June 21st pt.3/12

Hello Summer part 3 of 12 Carlsbad buzzes with excitement as summer arrives and becomes a destination for many beach seeking out-of-towners.

Mr. Brainwash Art Show 2008

click all photos to enlarge The sun glares at me as I creep the smoldering streets of Los Angeles. Cars honk and tempers flare as Santa Monica Blvd. whines with the weight of mid day traffic.

A Gift from a Neighbor

A once shy village drops its inhibitions and becomes comfortable with the expression of emotions. Closets spill once hid ideas. A creative outburst of […]

Waterhole Observations

A stagnant lagoon separates Carlsbad from Oceanside under the low gloom of a sleepy late Spring day. An artist, with supplies in hand, sets out for her subject. She wanders the streets of Carlsbad while scanning for her hidden muse. Like a hound in pursuit of a sly fox or a hobo in search of […]

…brightly colored palette.

Once upon a time there was a wall who begged for attention. He desired the obscure conversation and jumped on any chance to entertain. His passions belonged on the stage and his heart in the eyes of the public. His thoughts, educated through world wanderings and long reads, belonged in the ears of cool cats […]
