becoming van gogh

If there is any way
 you can get yourself to Denver,
 do it now.

Becoming Van Gogh
This extraordinary exhibit is at
the Denver Art Museum
October 21, 2012 - January 20, 2013.

This link is Ted Loos' NYTimes review of the show, and
this one will tell you everything you need to know 
to plan your visit.

How exciting!
You're going to see Van Gogh like never before!
This exhibit is a world exclusive
and will never be shown again.

Plus, global warming has left us high and dry.
Snowless and 60.
Not funny.

PDG photo 

While I've got you here,
you know how some artists have blogs
 but don't accept comments?
Duane Keiser is one of them.
Just as well.
It's generous enough that he takes the time to post.

Oh, and his paintings 
consistently blow me away.

Treat yourself and visit his link.
I'm just sayin'.

who moved my cheese?

Someone thought my life would be better
 with a new computer.
It wasn't.

Now I'm hopelessly trying to restore
 the innards of my old one.
Hey, the good news is that
 I can finally read your posts again,
and for what it's worth,
 you can read mine.

I've missed you all.
Sorry to have lost so much time;
Life is short.

companion planting

I planted three datura 
next to the barberry bush this summer.

Now the barberry is, as they say,
 totally tripped out.

These photos were taken today with my old iPhone 4
and shown as they are.
Yes, the camera really is that good,
and the bush really is this, well...
