The work involves commitment, pain, and a giving of oneself, and yet all of it is essentially a joyous experience.
Sydney Lurnet

Don’t be shy about it. Try to get as close as you can. You’ll never get all the way, and the separation might be truly remarkable. We have only to look to Richard Hamilton and his version of Marcel Duchamp’s large glass to see how rich, discredited, and underused imitation is as a technique.


Back from the vet last night with a new 'hat' to keep her from chewing her leg and scratching her ears.  Glucose levels over 600, and another 2 pounds lost.
Appointment set up for next week, insulin upped a level, and they will do a full day of testing Monday.  Poor doggie.  Bad night followed with her banging into furniture, getting stuck walking through doors and not sleeping well overnight.  Pitiful.

And oh yeah, TY too.  He sits in his granny launcher all day snoozing and then WHAMMO, midnight comes and it's time to watch shoot-em-up adventure movies with very noisy car chases.  I need a hotel room.

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, 
try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

But let us proceed to some much more interesting stuff!

FEATHERS:  Kate MccGwire’s feather sculptures are awe inspiring in their detail; they are the type of thing that is marveled. Gathering, peeling, and layering are just a few ways she constructs her work. The materials, vibrant colors, and tactile quality gives them an uncanny feeling. Seeing layers of feathers, we expect a winged creature attached. Instead, MccGwire has created organic yet indistinguishable forms. Her sculptures wrap around themselves, like the ouroboros, eating their own tail. Like infinity symbols, they are never ending. These forms feel powerful, and the feathers play a large role in it. Their volume, combined with a high level of craft, make us do a double take and demand our full attention.
