Ommp Pah Pah

Music in my head, oh how I love to hum.  Nothing is off key when I hum.  You can’t tell that I’m humming as you read this. I sometimes test simultaneously, if I can hum and correctly type.

Older people can do myriad of things while the world hums about them.  Most prefer low resonance humming, whirling pleasantry.  If melodic tones are not the sound in the air, a “senior” may become assertively vocal.   Keep it down!  What’s with the noise.  Where did quiet go?

East Bay Open Studios

I decided to change venues and have my Art available to the public within the Gray Loft Gallery.  Like a NY gallery, 2889 Ford St.,is situated in a 3rd floor walk-up. Warning…No elevator. Hadn’t fully considered this might keep people from visiting. After moving my Art works up stairs and arranging them, I’d need to rest my feet before the public comes.  What was I thinkng, except that a new venue might result in better results.  My Art will include Wearable Fused Glass, small Wall Space Prints, Notecards, Original Gouache and Ink Paintings and Collages. As usual commissions and framing are always welcome.
