Taking a "spring break" from blogging while I complete several agreeable activities.
Below is compilation of recent items and a sample of readings. +
"Red clay (bole) 4 Oz ready to use.
Clay and hide-glue mixture.
The act of gilding itself symbolizes the “breath of life” because when we apply the gold, we must breathe deeply from within onto the clay bole for it to adhere. The moisture from one’s breath wets and creates a tacky surface, allowing a perfect bond. The clay and the gold together represent man’s dual cosmic and earthly nature, material and spiritual sides."

To comment, about sales, distribution contact me.
Original artwork, as opposed to a print of any type, is quite wonderful and by far the most sumptuous and "tactile" of all.
I do accept and appreciate art commissions.

I have changed my website template. Older archive pages have yet (if ever) to be updated. There might be font discrepancies and other small issues. As well, so many people have cell phones theses days where screen sizes and technical capabilities vary. Do view NOTES on a computer screen for the very best visual presentation. If you are interested in posting NOTES elsewhere Contact me.
