Well okay, It's almost fall, so why am I just now making a summer entry? For those of you who know me personally, you know I have a tendency to disappear for months, sometimes years at a time. Did I hit the road again? No. (I am not counting the week in San Diego or the road trip to Sedona.) Did I stop painting again? Nope. In fact, I have never been so pleased with the paintings. So what then? In March I was cast in "Taming the Wild West" which aired on the History Channel in July. Two weeks after I left the set of "Taming", the producers of "Grains of Paradise" cast me in the co-starring role of Hilaro. "Grains" opened at the Lobo Theater in August and is currently on the Film Festival circuit. In July, I was cast in another film, "I AM", which was mentored by Christopher Coppola. "I AM" hit the screen in August as well, this time at the Kiva Auditorium. Somewhere in the mix, I completed the cover for MariJo Moore's new book, "Confessions of a Madwoman", began exhibiting at the Manitou Galleries in Santa Fe, NM and started a new series of work I call "The Prayer Paintings". So here it is September and I am just now making updates on this site and entering my summer journal message. I didn't fall off the edge of the earth the last six or seven months like I sometimes do. Instead, I have been juggling my creative endeavors and going out at dawn on my mountain bike to watch the sun come around each day. To those who made contact to see if I was still alive, thank you. I am still here.
