Art has always been a passion for me since my earliest years. When ever there was paper and pencil at hand, I was drawing, which resulted in me being sent our of the classroom several times. After learning the very basics that were offered in school, I went on to teach myself what I needed.
At present my favourite medium of choice is oils. "Oils! The Rolls Royce of painting"
In the beginning my paint technique was rather limiting. So when it cam

Joseph LarkinJoseph Larkin
Joseph Larkin hails from the dank pits of Syracuse, NY. He graduated from Onondoga Community College in 1993 and has worked as a fine artist ever since, Focusing largely on the human form and those of other animals. The images he creates are driven by fear, love and an deep appreciation for the darker corners of the organic psyche. He apints and draws in pretty much all two dimensional media which he drives into the third dimension with sculpture and fiber arts. Larkin lives, works and wanders the blurred edge of madness in Seattle, WA.
Paula RosaPAULA ROSA was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1970.
She graduated from Jean Piaget Institute, in 1998, and from Lusofona University, in 2007, both in Art and Design.
From her initial fascination for visual arts, and after exploring the wide variety of traditional media, Paula Rosa became aware of the potentialities of the digital tools in 2003. Since then, and being conscious of the importance of digital technologies and how they have been revolutionizing the arts, she began to experiment several techniques in the digital canvas.
Her work tells stories in which the action develops in three times: the past, the present and the future. From the past is recognizable the ancestral terror of death and for the unknown; the present reflects upon a decadent society divided between the material pleasure and the fear for the consequences of a self-induced apocalypse; the future, as any story meant to be continued, it's an almost certain and prominent question mark.
Ben TolmanBen Tolman
Ben Tolman lives and grew up in Washington, DC. He graduated from the Corcoran College of Art in 2005 (although largely considers himself self-taught). He works largely in minutely detailed ink drawings and more recently oil painting. He is primary interested in the strangeness of existence and the way in which people attempt to understand it. Among the avenues he uses to explore the nature (and consequences) of reality and conciseness are hallucinogenic drug which are a catalyst to the boundary regions of the mind. Among his current projects is the Antipodes Project which he started in 2006, It is a collaborative art project involving dozens of artists around the world. He has exhibited work both locally and internationally.
REINHARD SCHMID was born in Weiden, Germany, in 1960, and has always been fascinated by artists like Hieronymus Bosch and Max Ernst. Schmid also has an interest in machines and engineering, and for several years he even worked as a navigator on a submarine before he started painting on glass. His father Rudolf Schmid, also an artist, taught him the classical glass painting techniques as well as the new ones he had invented himself. Over the last 20 years Reinhard Schmid refined the use of pencil and watercolour on the reverse side of glass, and by combining it with the techniques of the old masters he developed his own distinct style.
In the early 1990s Schmid worked with Jaro Art Galleries on Madison Avenue, New York, which also exhibited his work at the New York Art Expo. Since 1993 he is curator of the so-called Gewölbe der Geheimnisse (Vaults of Secrets) in his home town Viechtach, Germany, where he works on a large scale version of tarot cards

Wade Furlong - Bio:
Through out years I have developed the insight to portray work that illuminates the beauty in the grotesque with a sense of comical demeanor. At times I inhibit bold and iconic compositions with my distorted figures, whether be complex or even more simplistic. My goal is always to focus on the figure at hand, the sense of extreme character that they have within themselves. To bring forth the attention of anatomy or fluidity in form with these characters, I take great care into the craft of sculpting dynamics with a three dimensional feel with two dimensional media. There is a intrigue of solitude within my creations I have been told. With the feedback and study from the human condition that I have delved into for years in travels, I continue to be fascinated by what mankind brings forth not only to one another, but to the abstract reality that they create for themselves.

The Manifesto of PeriscopicalMANIFESTO OF PERISCOPICAL ART
Written by Gromyko Padilla Semper, this collection of thought and research concerns the Union of Artists working together though different modes and methods, and how they present situation in art, the spiritual in art and post post-modern art:
The first thing that came to my mind, when it come to fleshing this out, is realizing that a revolution is essentially the individuals who are part of it. That is, the whole shall always be composed of individuals who play a major part in defining the essence of the whole. Each individual revolutionises aspects of reality in their own way, but they all are tied by a common goal. Though they may stand on their own independent fields of specialization, one cannot deny the common thread that binds them all: Art.
Art is the common thread, and the link between each individual thread, diverse in ways and virtues, always standing in unison. They are comparable to the atomic structure,
Descriptive PortraitureYour eagerness to begin our first day together, in person, was as bright and warm as the golden California sunshine that crept playfully into your window. You waited to wake me only for as long as you could stand to, then tousled my hair and spoke to my jetlag-stricken self in singsong until I stirred.
Your own dark brown tresses, unbrushed, fell flawlessly around your face and onto your pajamas-clad shoulders as you responded to a few e-mails on your laptop. The contrast between your skin and hair in the light of dawn was absolutely striking. In mid-dress, I whipped out my camera and sneaked a picture. You mock-fumed when you heard the shutter click.
"Don't worry," I reassured you. "I won't post it anywhere."
But I did, and thank goodness you were forgiving. It was too perfect not to share. Even my smarting eyes could tell that your face had expressed the utmost sense of joy and serenity.

Adventures of a CarAs I surveyed my car while my father in-law's phone rang, I considered the events which had led to this. Remarkably, I wasn't angry or upset. In spite of losing my car, I wasn't panicking. Rather, I was quite level-headed, and would soon share a laugh.
Purchasing the car had been a necessity. Just after replacing the radiator in my 1993 Buick LeSabre, I bumped into a Jeep Grand Cherokee which was traveling at about 35 miles per hour. The slight bump unhitched and bent the hood, knocked out a headlight, tore off the grille, and, to add insult to injury, bent the brand new radiator backward over the engine.
The replacement was a 2000 Ford Focus wagon. The dealer had obtained it at auction with only 58,000 miles. It was previously a corporate car. I had high expectations on that basis; since it was previously owned by a corporation, I was of the impression that the car would have been in good shape. After all, a company would care for its assets.
I had not expected what would follo

I've been doing gardening lately, since getting the chickens settled, and it's quite enjoyable. I've sort of taken over the section Larry was going to do, but he's been spaced out because of Mary Jo.
I went through this whole sort of discovery thing a while back about a way I can strive to be a good person. Washing the dishes one day I realized, with Vicki's help, that I do it sloppy, and something from a book that had been lurking in my mind came to the front like inspiration.
The book was about the cultural revolution in China, and the part I thought of was about peasants in a certain village having a meeting about their work habits and deciding to get up an hour earlier to work better, and, quoting Mao, "serve the people." It was like a bell ringing true in my head, and I decided that if I'm going to do anything, washing dishes and all, that I ought to do my best and thus "serve the people" and myself. I found a copy of "the little re
diez.Stellen Sie sich vor, Sie sitzen in einer feinen Runde am Tisch und der Salat wird serviert. Sie nehmen das Messer in die rechte Hand und die Gabel in die linke – wenn Sie könnten. Aber der linke Arm gehorcht Ihnen nicht. Schlaff baumelt er an Ihrer Seite nach unten wie der Ärmel einer Jacke, welche über die Stuhllehne hängt. Er lässt sich nicht bewegen. Obschon es sich für eine solche Gesellschaft nicht gehört, nehmen Sie die Gabel in die rechte Hand und spiessen das erste Salatblatt auf. Offenbar haben Sie ein medizinisches Problem, welches Sie aber zuerst selber in Ruhe ansehen möchten, bevor Sie mit anderen darüber sprechen und womöglich Fragen auftauchen, die Sie nicht beantworten können.
In diesem Moment fühlen Sie, wie Ihr linker Arm ausgestreckt nach oben wandert, und im nächsten Augenblick sitzen Sie da wie ein Schüler, der im Unterricht artig die Hand hochhält, bevor er zu schwatzen beginnt. Aber

A lot is getting together on the chicken coop now. Winnie has been the main one working on it with me, after the post holes were dug (Binjo and Larry helped on those) and Nancy and Vicki have helped too. I'm well into working on it now. It's fun to work with Winnie, though sometimes I feel a crazy competition streak and have silent contests to be able to drive a nail as fast as he can--which is not a bad goal, but little silly since he's got about a thousand more nails hammered behind him than I do. I get better at it all the time though.
Have been working on embroidery in the tipi for Winnie's and Mary's birthdays, but other than that my energy isn't spread out much on other things.
I went upstairs to Pat's bed just to relax, and was watching John play with Molly across the way, and I drifted into thoughts about how it must be really something to have a kid around from part you and part from a man you love or have loved. Then I thought

Soon to go feed Mike H's animals, pick up some manure, etc. Another warm, sunny day. Larry and Jo got it on--she was up here for two days and wonder of wonders, they got around to telling each other they like each other and sleeping together and having fun. I think it's really great. Larry told the story a few times--he is quite happy and somewhat wired about the whole affair. As Pat said, he's a heavy romantic!
Had a women's meeting last night. Talked mainly about Stephanie's trouble with Binjo, how Binjo wants to get it on with Pat. Steph let out some tears and talk of her frustration with her anger, because though she feels she must have a distance from Binjo, she feels afraid of pushing him away further, and sees herself as just being cold and creepy. Her anger against Pat upsets her because it isn't entirely reasonable and Pat is always understanding, and she's not sure what to do about that.
The meeting depressed me to the

The hardest part of a fight is often around round six and seven depending on the length of the rounds. In an even match you have scored and been punched in equal measure. She seems so much stronger than you now and your first wind has all been used up. You do not listen to your second as she cleans you and uses an ice pack to stop any swelling or nasal adrenalin swabs stuffed up your nose to quell the blood dripping onto your chest and bra. You feel slightly sick and wonder if you will throw up. She thrusts the mouthguard in and jolts your shoulders back to bring you back to the fight. “Seconds out, round seven.” Suddenly you are up on your feet and your opponent is snarling and on top of you so quickly. The first few stinging blows to your head and body somehow flick a switch to bring you out of your lethargy. You smell and feel her near you, her concentration is on hurting you. Such desire, you are the sole focus of her attention. This is not romantic love, i

I've been dong well lately, general just-rollin-along mood. There was a night a few nights ago when I was a step or two from feeling real tragic. I'd been blue all evening and tripped on it--feeling stupid, nasty and desperate. And feeling like I am probably known as a sort of typical 'old maid,' I've been single here so long. I said absurd things to try for attention. I just felt avoided.
Finally I brought it up at the table with Vicki and David and Winnie and Nancy. I was embarrassed and didn't look anyone in the eye while I said how I felt, and that if I were in a couple, my mate wouldn't probably known and asked me, and not have me spell it out.
So folks said they could tell I was in a bad place. David said that he often feels it when I'm getting bummed out (Vicki said he mentions it to her at such times) and he said he would henceforth ask me what was wrong.
Nancy said, in regards to me being single here, that she kn
