What if it were my last post? What would I want to leave... billions of years before my beginning, billions of years after my end, 97% of human history lost, what of me can I hope to leave? What do I have to give? I'll give a whisper to the wind, a sigh, a last breadth, I'll paint a fading song for a new generation.

And if all that goes to shite, I'll give my corpse to cosmetic surgeons in need of practice and finally get a friggin face lift. Ha!

LAST!!! (for a few minutes)

Top of the morning to everyone, its 2:28 am New Orleans, Louisiana time. I am off from work for the summer from the university were I am employed. I am not tired yet, enjoying some of the great threads posted today and this evening and morning.

Hello Jane, Mario, Denise, Erica, JL, Julie and Kasia, and Abbie,

Thank you Mario for the generous comment, I appreciate that, and right back at you. Its been a pleasure to view your accomplished and masterful gallery, I have noticed a personal signature with your original work, the subject and technique is very revealing. I have also noticed something unique, some of your work does have a art nouveau period appeal to it. I will be visiting your gallery again soon.

Everyone have a great day tomorrow.

Could you please explain what "soliciting" mean? I googled it of course, but somehow can't understand what people mean when they invite you to participate in a contest and say no soliciting. Thanks in advance!

 

Mario Labonte

It seems they perhaps didn't specify any soliciting examples, so I can only assume they meant not to approach contest members trying to sell them your art?
Kind of strange indeed...Maybe a lot of people on here do this sort of thing, I don't know since I am new here...

Greetings Jaxine, Mary, Karlyn, Jennifer, I had to dig deep and get this discussion up from page 6, I sure hope everyone is doing ok. Jaxine, you have a lot of catching up to do, I have been taking so many images with my new Cannon EOS 10D its taking remarkable images....Working on many new series to post in just a couple of weeks. Some exciting news, I was cast for the new TV series "Quarry" wardrobe fitting today 11 am. Just about around the corner from the coffee shop I visit everyday. It will be an airport seen, I will be either an airline pilot, airline passenger or general airport scene.......if you notice I now added the "Captain" to my signature. Filming for the episode I will appear in is April 13, 2015. Spring has been just fantastic here in New Orleans.........I am getting ready for this weekend has always been one of the best festivals I attend "The French Quarter Festival" stages on many corners with live free music, then the largest Sunday Brunch on the river front its awesome!!!!!

I had posted the good news in my Lights, Camera, Action forum and a fellow Fine Art Of America wanted to know "why are the bags of peanuts so small on the airlines" , here is my response....lol.



Hello Sydne, that was absolutely hysterical!!!! You have won an academy award for that one!!!!! Attention passengers, this is your captain Michael, one of the flight attendants has just informed me a certain passenger is questioning the size of the peanut bags? Would, the passenger in seat 124 B window, please, return all unopened peanuts and share them with your fellow passenger Sydne, sitting across from you, row 124 A the isle seat, and let Sydne know the reason the peanut bags are so small they compliment the tiny bottles of booze all of you consume!!!!!!! Personally, I drink lots of coffee, and never put the aircraft on auto pilot!!!!!! lol.

Oh, I made the rank as captain of this particular flight thanks to the casting director and director of the weekly series "Quarry"

"Please return to your seats ladies and gentlemen, we will be landing at FAOA International shortly, please, fasten your seat belts and put your trays in the upright position. I hope you had a pleasant flight and continue to have many sales and enjoyed the tiny bags of peanuts!!!!!!

Cheers, Captain Michael Hoard Actor, Artist and Photographer

Little did we know - how could we know - that Jaxine's birthday was yesterday.

Happy birthday, Jaxine, dear loyal friend and magnificent artist.

You thought you'd get away without a word. I hope you had a wonderful celebration.

Hi everyone. Mary I had a wonderful birthday. Every one was so nice to me on my special day.
I went to the Scottsdale league meeting my table was in charge of the food last night.
I got to see Karyn. that was so great. I wish you could meet her in person. she is so bubbly
and beautiful.
Michael, I'm so proud of you and I am so glad you have a new camera.
I will be watching for you on the show.
the Phoenix Artists guild is having there big show this week end and I'm in charge of hanging it again.
I love putting paintings together and making the whole room flow with beauty. there is so much to it.
the lighting is most important. I have a lot of help with the volunteers. we will have 74 paintings this time.
Mary I finished the book and didn't want to come to the end. that's how good it was. thank you so much.

I have been a fan of Clay Aiken for years and have followed his career on the Clay board for years.
I have heard all his speeches when he ran for a seat in congress NC. He lost as most of us thought he would
but he put up a good fight and got some of his ideas across. he is such a bright man and has always been Keen on politics.
They made a documentary of him running and it's really good. It is on the Esquire channels Tuesdays. for 4 weeks in April.

The people doing the documentary are big award winners for their work.
Clay was a teacher of autistic children before he went on American Idol . I have an autistic granddaughter so I became very interested
in his fight for people who are not heard and need a voice.

I even went to NY when he was on Broadway Starring in Spamalot. what a great time we had.

I better post. I wrote a book.

It's that time again. play ball!!!!Art Prints

Happy Birthday Jaxine, wow, I hope it was the best birthday ever!!!!! I went to costume fitting for the TV series "Quarry" I will have to hang up my pilot wings for the time being, I will be in the airport scene who knows..the airport scene is from the 70's. Happy Birthday to Jaxine also, I am ready for the French Quarter Festival Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday,,,,there will be a total of 24 stages with non stop live entertainment, of the best jazz performers musicians and top singers......its the best you should make the trip sometime Jaxine, its awesome.... I shall be there.

I have not been involved with anything since NCIS New Orleans, I do not have a cell, but on line all day long pretty much at the coffee shop, you really have to stay on top of the emails from the casting as the positions become available. .

How exciting is that Jaxiine and your interest with Clay Atkins, that is amazing. Best of luck with your coordinating the upcoming art show.....have a great time!!!!!!

Cheers, Michael Hoard Actor, Artist and Photographer.

~~Thank you for reading ALL my books, Jaxine. I love you so! You have been terrifically busy but sounding so happy.
~~Michael, I'm envious. I do not like my Nikon and since it was expensive must use the heck out of it so i can finally buy a Canon. Course, if i sold some art, i might get the Canon anyway and then pass the Nikon to a photo student or something. You, too, are having a great time.
~~Karyn, when I next come to Phoenix/Scottsdale, we will all get together. Would love to meetup with friends.
~~As for me, I have been accepted as a JUDGE in a book contest. I am so excited! Have never judged before. Must read all books in the category of my choice and rate them. I'll be doing this till the end of August, whenever books enter the contest in my category. Actually i chose a category that has fewer entries because I am so danged busy all the time. But i wanted to try judging once. It's a feather in my writing cap. A big one. So now I'd better get to work. The book I'm presently writing is nearly put together but i will need to do at least one thorough edit. I cannot publish before June because my cover art and video maker is moving back to Canada where he husband found a job. She won't be available till then. By June The Howling Cliffs will be ready for paperback. This new book will go to eBook and paperback. Oh gads! I'd better quit here.

Also, update, the new weekly series "Quarry" being lensed here in New Orleans will be an HBO weekly drama series.....it is about a Vietnam soldier return home and "demonized" it takes place in the 70's. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to appear in other scenes of the production. Yesterday Thursday, the filming was just around the corner where I live and being filmed on St. Charles Avenue at a local long run family diner on the avenue. I did take photos of all the action outside the diner yesterday.......it was a two day shoot and the crew is finished with that taping.....my involvement will be on Monday at the airport......I grew up in the era of the Vietnam war and this should be a very good dramatic drama series and deserved documentation........

Karlyn, I hope you are doing ok and have been enjoying all your new work beautiful creations!!!!!!! "Too Hot To Handle" now that will no doubt sell very soon, fantastic work.....

Everyone have a fantastic weekend, get out and enjoy this time of year its the best!!!!!!!!


Karunita, I have been enjoying all your new work, very beautiful and spiritual!!!!!! Have a great weekend!!!!!

Just a little note: My sister Noreen who is a student advisor at Rice University is off on an adventure this week she is a long distance bicyclist and she is off on a 180 miles bike ride in the hills of Texas, she belongs to a bike club and thousands are riding for a great cause "Muscular Dystrophy" she has taken part on many bike rides and is an avid long distance bicyclist and just recently was featured on the cover of a bicyclist magazine while on one of her long distance bike runs. Congrats to my sister Noreen and all the other participants.....!!!!!!!!

I mentioned this in another post, but I am truly greatful for the power of art!
I suffer from an invisible yet life threatening condition called Gastroparesis, which has reduced me to 80lbs, causes constant pain, and impairs my ability to digest food, and perform bodily functions. Fibromyalgia has aso developed which is it's own chaos.
There is no cure at this time for gastroparesis, which leaves me in a sort of medical limbo. I use my artwork to work through the chaos. It's an incredible outlet, channeling feelings wishes; there are days where words cannot describe the amount of fear within me, so getting it on paper in another way helps, or I can distract myself from the condition, transporting myself to a world of lines and color.
I'm hoping to make a few sales to help cover my day to day medical costs. Should you be looking to add a little artwork into your home, or need custom artwork created such as tattoo, logo, ect, feel free to contact me and/or explore my gallery. It would be greatly appreciated through this scary period.

This was actually the broken glass of the windshield when I was in a small accident with my brother-inlaw. Thankfully no serious injuries occured, though due to my ilness I was pretty messed up for severak weeks after. It was taken sometime after the incident once the glass had shifted more, but immediately after the accdent the lines of the broken glass resembled the sillhouette of an angel curled up. Couldn't help but yell at my brother in-law, "You hit my angel!"
I didn't have my better camera with me when I snapped the shots (definity not FAA worthy :P ) but I wanted to take the time remember that odd moment. :P

This piece has two points of influence:
1. being my own emotiontional state while dealing with my chronic health issues.
"I am like glass, once clean and clear
my dreams and life so bright
I was full,
not just half full,
but full
Some time's with sweetness
other times, bitterness

Then the crack came, not seen at first
perhaps if it was we would do thing different
Broken promises, broken dreams;
shards of my life lie scattered before me.
I can see through each piece
Things I could have done,
People I could've been
And occasionally I'm cut.

I can't always see the depth of the wound,
and I don't always feel it,
but the cuts bleed regardless,
and as time passes, so does bits of myself
Now I'm clouded and worn

Cracks show through,
every tired line beneath an eye
Plans and dreams leaking
through cracks in the surface

So I try my best not to cut
those around me,
with my now sharp edges."
Poem: Jessica Faye Watters
*written during some of my flairups
2.song "Shatter me" by Lindsey Stirling.
(Chorus)
"Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

Hi all...been a while. Mary, thanks for working so hard to keep the thread alive. I love the colander shot. Very cool.

Been busy as usual. I was finally able to post my first oil painting. I have another one to post as soon as the glaze dries which might be another week. Patience...
