I've been pretty quiet here lately. 

Sitting high up on my books, looking at you in my mirror, naked and open to the breezes, I look like I'm not doing a thing this summer.

All this peacefulness belies the fact I'm a conflagration of Pele proportions.
I'm creating something that is radically different and rich, it is expanding me in ways I never imagined and I hope you will be excited too, look here in the next  few coming weeks for more info.

Thing I'm telling you this week:

What I like LOVE today

The natural body beauty of a turn of the century hooker from Storyville. Look at her hips, belly and arms.... that's real woman. Look at her attitude, that's real womanly.

Inspiration for Rugs 

The use of unexpected colour, red violet for army green and brown, turquoise for yellow green. Still we see the turtle and better yet we see his spirit. Love it!
