death of artboy68

No, not really. Just the name… I have been away finding myself, and it has been good. I will leave this site up for my own reference, (it’s always good to look back), but in the meantime I’ll be charging ahead with new work, new expressions, new discoveries born from incessant exploration. Shouldn’t that be what art is about? Please come and find me and if you like what you see, let me know! This site was started with the concept of using visitor’s comments as the engine, and a beautiful community and some lasting connections sprouted from it.

Come check out my new site, click that ‘follow’ button to stay connected and let’s start again! 🙂

If not, what’s your angle? I’m interested.

All the way from Scotland

Straight from the heart of Scotland, home of my ancestors, came a wonderful package of all things Scottish. I saw on HelenMcClory’s  blog, Schietree, (Helen was portrait number 81 of my 100 Portraits project), that she was giving a collection of photos (including an awesome photo book of her own and an amazing little book about the islands surrounding Scotland, one of which I discovered was a stronghold of my own family from the 16th century), a couple of very cool postcards from early 1900’s and some wonderful woolly photos of those Scottish sheep, which I also discovered do not form a solid wool carpet across the entire country. I just had to enter my name, an lo and behold the lords of the clan held up for me; I received this in the mail soon after.

Thank you so much Helen! Glad we ran into each other!
