"Fading Memories" is supposed to tell the story of an unhappy woman who, because of her beauty, is capable of collecting many lovers. Problem is she can't remember what they look like. They leave inanimate objects around, like combs and toothbrushes which remain clear.

I needed her to be cold and distant.

One of my friends said this is a step forward, away from naked and obese, but last night I found myself beginning another painting of a blonde fat woman looking out the window with huge breasts. Maybe digression?

40" by 40", acrylic on canvas, 2007.

Have you ever shown in Seattle? That is where I live and I would love to see your paintings in RL...

I was out there last year cause my nephew had a wedding. I did like what seemed to be the art community that I was capable of catching in the short time I visited.

I would need to have a gallery that believed they could move my stuff. If you have any ideas???

Yes, we should have you come to Seattle/Tacoma. They love their art out here in the Great Pacific Northwest.

Maybe I will, but I need a gallery to accept me and my work. When I get a whole show together of these "Americans in Paris" I'll photograph them and see if anyone will show them.
