Published: Arnoldsche Verlagsanstalt GmbH - February 5th, 2021

Never thought about the "counter culture" decked out, festooned, with jewelry that made a statement. I love this book. I've made jewelry and art. My paintings, on angry days, are political. I copied Artemesia Gentilleschi

Published: Penguin Press - March 23rd, 2021

I love reading about artists. Ninth Street Women is amazing. Helen Frankenthaler was one of these artists. I'm not a fan of her work being referred to as "feminine". She was an Abstract Expressionist with a vagina.

Published: One World - February 16th, 2021

This book spells out what a f'd up country we are and how the entitled, even if they're not rich, will vote against their own best interest. As long as the people they don't approve of aren't getting fair treatment they're happy to shoot themselves in the foot. Facinating read!

Published: Melville House - December 1st, 2020

This book is an epic read rivaling my dreams. It's surreal, cultish, Tim Burton's Big Fish mixed with Arkham Assylum mixed with a Mark Ryden painting. It is highly readable, not abstract or high falutin. Fun!
