Hello Bloglandia! If you've been wondering where Finn McSpool has been lately, well, he's been in the exact same place at me: Stuck at home with no prospects for travel for a very, very long time thanks to the moronic... [very long rant redacted in exchange for...] Okay, I won't get into the ridiculous embarrassment … Continue reading Finn McSpool Embarks on a Mini-Escape
I know I am LOOOOONG overdue for a Sketchbook Show Off, but other news keeps getting in the way, and even my news has gotten in the way of my news. Take for example, my latest art show that went up in May. You didn't even know about it did you? Luckily, I'm dedicating this … Continue reading Decorating Another Wall with My Art
Blue ribbons, that is! As loyal readers may recall, a few weeks ago I hauled my artwork off to the Clackamas County Fair to be scrutinized and judged along with the hogs, homemade aprons, and odd vegetables (and hogs who eat odd vegetables while wearing homemade aprons).

And this was the first sentence of the email that had me dancing around the kitchen going, … Continue reading My Artwork Has Been Selected for AEP!
