And finally a shameless dog post...

 By boy Crixus taking one of his several hundred naps each day...

And given his name is that of an Roman Gladiator I cannot contain my excitement about possibly traveling to Egypt late next year with the Planetary Society.  

A new commission piece...


New leather sculpture series

 While making the shield I had a bunch of scraps and do to a happy accident I am working on a series of leather sculptures.  

Leather Shield Project

 My daughter and I go to the Michigan Renaissance Festival every year.  I have worked my way up to wearing a kilt, the last time we attended I purchased my sword and for this years return (closed last year because of covid) of the event I decided to test my ability to work with leather.  Here is a full size leather shield I have been working on and will finish up next week.

 In addition to creating art I have dived full on into cooking.  I am a chef at the Ukrainian Culture Center in Warren, MI.  Since I have been off because of cove I have been cooking for private parties and work events.  Here I am at my daughters place of employment serving up smoked brisket, pulled pork sandwiches with my leak slaw and my smoked potato salad.

New work and a few comments about the last year,,,

 Hello all, I know its been quite a while.  

I have been working on my next book called "Detroit Erotica" which is my journey through the world of erotica through photographs, art work, and my erotic writings from the last 17 years.  The writings were handed off to the proof reader yesterday, the images have been selected and I am in the process of taking high resolution images of me erotic art.  I am very excited and proud of this new book.

Here are a only paintings I created in 2020:

I had to paint Covid-19

This abstract was painted in the wee hours of January 29th making it the last painting I created in 2020

On to 2021 and my first large project A full size leather shield.  My daughter and I have a tradition of going to the renaissance festival every year in Michigan.  During the 2019 festival I purchased a sword and thought because we could not go in 2020 I would make a leather shield to go along with the sword.

Now that the leather is shaped the next step is to shape the wood slats that will be the support structure for the shield.

Now, my thoughts on the last year/4 years.

When Trump was elected president I knew he was a hate filled bungling idiot.  I had no idea how dangerous he was to this country, the constitution.  The events he instigated on January 6th were appalling and he should have been arrested on the spot the very day of it and sent to prison for treason!

The morons (and I am being nice here) that are his followers will never change unless the bullshit of Q, Fox News and other such con artists are wiped off the face of the earth.  Trump will go away one day, he will be forgotten and our memories will be wiped clean of this disgusting human.  There will however be someone else to step in and try the whole thing again.  The republicans in both the senate and congress are cowards.  They too, will be remembered for their part in the events of January 6th, history will write their stories, for all of eternity and they and their families will forever be remembered with shame.
