First, Happy Fourth!

 I painted a snappy picture for this day,
which I'll post at the end of this experiment...
First, I'll bait the hook with this:

I'm fishing for the so-and-so who's been
offering my photos, paintings and Pollock app pieces
as wallpaper.

So I'm hereby declaring my independence
with a purposely fudged print.

May your bottles all be rockets!

I hope you catch the so-and-so. Your Fourth of July greeting (art and words) is the absolute best.

Well done!

Crystal Cook said...

I hope you catch the so and so's too. Makes me SO angry!!

Gosh this bottle rocket one is GORGEOUS! Such power, such presence! Really well done. :D

I'm glad folks are watching, and it's good to know I've got a posse. I'd like a little credit, but obviously, the "innertube" is a big world, and I know that if we post, we host.

Dam! Mind of I ride along? Lets run um down before the cross the border. Saddle up your paints and ride.

love all pieces and I think it is crap that someone seeks to profit from your talent. Wrong, just wrong!

Did you find the thief? Some people take without giving credit, that's for sure. And some don't want to have their moral compasses adjusted.

Love the bottle rocket! You are a master of the ap! When will you start teaching others how to do it?

We saw lots of fireworks displays over the water, which gave us double the pleasure with the watery reflections.

Moral compasses have no true north. I suspect the crook will be forever lost.

Thinking about how to teach how-tos about something which seems so easy seems too easy. Which makes it hard.
