Where's My Dinner?!!!

If this doesn't convince you to adopt a dachshund NOTHING will!!!


The Circus Influence

"Femme Cirque"
When I was in Paris I always loved going to "Le Moulin Rouge" and would always go to the "Le Cirque" Parisian. So, it's only natural that the French circus has been a great influence on me and my works of art.  The clowns and circus performers I met in Paris were actually some of the nicest people I've ever met.   To me, calling someone "a clown" is not an insult. As far as I'm concerned clowns are "artists"!!!  Not only are they entertaining, but I am very grateful to them because they helped me expand my imagination and become the artist I am today.

In fact, when I was an Executive Director I used to have community art programs where  I would always expose my community to the "performing arts".  So every year, when the circus rolled into town, I would also gather up the neighborhood kids to take them to the circus to appreciate the "clowns, acrobats, horseback riders, and other circus performers".  I came across this picture, so I thought I'd post it here.

Bon Apetit!

Bon apetit. All my close friends know that if you want to make me happy just give me high quality sushi and a good craft beer made with a lot of hops flowers.  Needless to say, I'm very happy right now...  Burp. Enjoy the weekend!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!  Speaking of mother's day, now that spring is here, I just went outside to repair a branch in a tree next to my porch when suddenly a bird flew out and started chirping at me from another tree.  Here's why.  She was protecting the eggs that I found in her nest.  Don't worry.  Of course, I left them in tact.  What a gift!  You can't tell me Life is not "beautiful!"

A Dog's Life

Oliver is living "a dog's life". He just took a walk along the Esplanade in Boston.  My family loved this photo so I thought I'd go ahead and share it with all of you too. Thanks, I know all you animal lovers can relate...


Happy Spring!

Happy Spring from Oliver, the dachshund I adopted from the shelter.
