The Life of an Artist

“Some say she's from Mars

Or one of the seven stars

That shine after 3:30 in the morning

Well she isn't.”…

The Life of an Artist

“To live in this town you must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough!

You got rats on the west side

Bed bugs uptown

What a mess this town's in tatters I've been shattered”

The Rolling Stones

That album sure did inspire me to want to move to the city. Made living in New York sound…

The Life of an Artist

“Ding dong, the witch is dead.”
Wizard of Oz
“Fame, I’m going to live forever!”
Irene Cara
Senior, high school, from the moment I stepped foot onto the school bus, till the time I arrived at the end of the day at my grandma’s there were verbal taunts, goddamned faggot, fucking faggot, freak. I would never back down.
My dad had just killed himself, and yes we did sing a chorus from Wizard of Oz, he was a veritable force in the Chicano…

The Life of an Artist

"How bleak was my puberty." Agnes Gooch, Auntie Mame.

Just to recap, born early 60s, both parents second marriage, age of Camelot, raised American, entitled to pursue happiness. Self-discovery, awareness, path in life all came pretty early, shocking to my little mind but dealt with it through creativity, focus, empathy, lots of love, and later drugs.

Late 60s, family foundation begins to cave in, slowly, a constant string of negative experiences, bullied regularly,…

The Life of an Artist

"Who am I? Why am I here?

 Lloyd Bentsen, 1988 vice presidential debate versus Dan Quayle.

When I was a kid, Pre-K, we went on a field trip, the local fire station, I actually got to sit in the driver's seat. I was convinced then that I wanted to be a Fireman, my folks were so proud.

Then in kindergarten, oh I didn't like school, came that day, finger paint. Oh yeah baby. The class was held in a barrack, there was a huge braided rug, what are those…

Temporary Roomates and Temporary Insanity

An old friend calls, he's in Scottsdale, "I'm having a solo show here, would you mind if I visited you in Santa Fe for a couple of days?" This guy and I have known each other through a mutual friend in NYC for about fifteen years now, we partied together and worked on several pubic art installations as part of a team. Even though we knew each other for a long time, I was never particularly drawn to him, except in the beginning, and then I got to know him very…

Time On My Side

It's fall in Santa Fe, during the daytime, the sun shines bright, the sky is filled with nothing but endless blue and there is a generous warmth. As the day comes to an end, the cool breeze, the falling light, darkness soon, the chill of night.

Been struggling with the paint these past few weeks, no not really, haven't been painting at all since I got that call in the…

For the Good Times

Going on a year here in Santa Fe, still in transition mode, uncertain as to whether I should stay, whether or not I want to stay and I do decide to leave where should I head to next?


I am still enchanted by the natural beauty of this city in the mountains, am very happy with my accommodations, have some terrific neighbors and finally feeling connected with the…
