when I have to get away from all the dumb shit that I have to deal with that is utterly tearing me apart, I would run away to the one place that I love to go and hid out, this place is with my good friends the wisconsin boys (yes I said good friends ) even tho I don't talk to them as much as I would like to, they are still there from me (I think). we can talk for hours about horse shit. I know I have other friends and family that I can turn to but I truly think they know where I am coming from. I really love having their company.
I recently visited the Wisconsin boys, (unfortunately one of them had to make a trip back home for there was a death in the family. my prayers go out to him. ) so I got to hang out with Vin. Hanging out with Vin had taught me not to give up on what you truly love and no matter where you end up never forget who have meet along the way.
I have great respect for my boys, even tho times are really hard and life throws a curve ball, these guys keep there heads held up high and continue to do what the love best.

Well lets see here the event I have been planning, Jim was sacrificing his free time for, has finally come and gone. The show is still up, but will come down sometime this week for its the end of the semester.
The night of the show I was so nerves i had forgotten to say my thank you.
Jim was my greatest support and still is, he pushed me so much to a point where i made him do my work for me ooppss.
He made all 72 frames and painted the entire gallery room to a nice neutral white.
Also my good friend Jocelyn come down from Oakland, it was grate seeing her again! I really miss her.
Thank you for being there for me Jocelyn!
Also i would like to send a very special thank you to J Damron. He made the time from his busy schedule to meet with me. He really helped me challenge my work and really see what is going on in them.
THANK YOU J!
I would like to thank my gallery committee Russell, Chris, Stacey, and kat.

The directors are basically being paid to do one thing--excite the viewer. Thats the opposite of what I want to do. I certainly don't want to sexually arouse anybody, but i do want to arouse the viewer's curiosity and sense of mystery.
I want to show them as people, iI don't want them to be glamour girls or glamour boys--that's a tired set of images. I don't think there's any mystery left to explore there.
