Bigger Is Not Always Better

(Both pics. snapped on 11/26/12)

I'm not gonna lie you guys, it definitely feels like I'm starting all over...I'm green I tell you - muh fuckin' GREEN! (But then again, you can probably already tell that just by looking at these pics..)

I'm not convinced that the Amazon-ish characters that I attempted to portray at this adorable, miniature cottage in the woods - are even remotely believable, but what I do know is that it made me insanely happy to get off my duff, and go stage a moderately elaborate selfpic shoot (albeit a tad bit disappointing, and not a terribly bounteous one...but whatevs).

I also know that I am forever grateful to the handful of people who continue to urge me to keep making my art. I've had tons of doubt about a lot of different things lately, which has only made your encouragement that much more valuable, Thank You! I hope that you (my readers) will continue to bear with me while I recharge and recondition myself, and take the slow and small steps necessary to (seriously) dive back into this nonsense again...

 BIG hugs and mega LOVE to my friends who not only invited me to get back in the game by shooting at their teeny tiny forest playhouse, but who also put things in a different (and much more appealing) perspective for me...Thank You so, so, SO much!

Welp? It's Official...

My first court appearance will be on Dec. 20th. Unfortunately though, I've been told that my final court date will probably be pushed out as far as late January 2013 - maybe even into February.

My plan has been to wait until this nightmare was resolved once and for all, before deciding how (or if) I should keep this silly blog of mine alive...but if I hold off for that long - I'm pretty sure that it'll end up to be curtains for The Big Ugly...

Deep Doo Doo

I am being criminally charged with two counts of trespassing (misdemeanors)...each count carrying a maximum sentence of 12 months in jail, and a $2500 fine.

Obviously because of all of this - I won't be taking any risky selfpics anytime soon...and to be quite honest about it, I've lost the desire to take any at all. I'm sorry you guys...I hate that I'm letting you down.

I absentmindedly snapped this self-portrait on Monday, while I was out taking pics. with my phone. At the time I had no idea that it would most likely be the last selfie that I post for awhile...maybe ever.

A Golden Opportunity

(Snapped on 8/22/10 - at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, in Richmond, Va.)

A collection of my self-portraits was recently added to 1650 Gallery's "Artist Spotlight" webpage (<------ kindly click here please, to view if you'd like), along with the portfolios of photographers: Osmyn Oree, and Mark Hedengren. I am beyond grateful to 1650 Gallery for featuring my work, thus enabling me to gain more exposure as an artist - Thank You so much for providing me with this auspicious opportunity to reach a broader audience!!!
