This one was done about 1995.  It has been with them since they moved from Brooklyn to Boston about 8 years ago.

And here’s some art by other artists I’ve come to love.

This piece is by Sergei Andreevski.  He’s one of the living masters, and hails from Macedonia.  I got it by sponsoring the No Boundaries Artist Colony back in 1998.

Lucky lucky lucky, as Andreevski put it on the cover of a number of catalogues since then.

Joey was the proprietor of Trace Gallery in Raleigh, back when freewheeling outrageous art was still seen in public in Raleigh.  His own incorporated found marterial, interesting concepts, and a lot of silicone to bring it all together.  Everyone I know misses Trace Gallery now, as that type of bohemian art scene has dried up around here.  Holy conformity batman.

Anna stil has a studio with her husband Keith Norval at Artspace in Raleigh.  Wow her stuff continues to soar from this point, which was over a decade ago.  She araely does watercolors anymore.  Shame that.

OK that’s enough for today.

Spiritual Scuffle above Macedonia,2010,Kicevo Artist Colony

Spiritual Scuffle above Macedonia,2010,Kicevo Artist Colony

Bright eyes dig up a question from generations ago:

You want to know why the wind blew us

Together, how our sons will grow, when we will

Meet again, where will we be as one again?

Training gives you the desire to examine cause and

Effect.  Experiences about as wide apart as possible

Come at us, yet we harmonize, learn each other’s secrets,

Give what we know the other will love, provide

Sanctuary in a world spinning out of control for so

Many.  This I offer to distinguish myself from regular

Men, be they handsome or young: a complete heart

With continued support, undying gratitude, massage

Therapy, attempts at cooking, quite a way with words.

I expect you to smile when we chat, remain a solid

Force, a muse for my art, the reason I will always

Yearn for more, forever the target of happy life,

Memories (plans?) and a fresh heart, made whole

By the time we spent sincerely swirled, sufficiently

Molded to continually receive jolts of good news,

Connected forever by this love, complex, alive, strong.
