No One Wants to Hear an Old Geezer Sing with a Wavering Vibrato

At my age, I paint because no one wants to hear an old geezer sing with a wavering vibrato. I recently added snorting to my repertoire. My heart murmur (a faulty valve) was replaced with pig tissue.  Like Cecile B. DeMille, “Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.”

At my age, it’s unrealistic to believe I can still have a smokin’ hot body. I suppose that will have to wait until cremation.

I may not have a lot of time left.I certainly haven’t yet made a date with the Grim Reaper. In the meantime, I have two driving needs, creativity and attention. I intend to create at least a couple thousand more paintings. I love being in the spotlight which takes me back to attention… that’s where you come in. I need more followers for both “Studio Scoop” and “Studio News.”  I can no longer park my cars in my double garage (think about it).

When I started writing this blog, I did not believe I had a lot to write about.  Although I don’t have a deadline like a columnist, I feel somewhat like one.  I do have self-imposed deadlines however, and writing satisfies part of my need for creativity.  My goal is threefold:

  1. Write about my art
  2. Through “Studio Scoop,” direct readers to “Studio News,” my newsletter
  3. Direct readers to my website:

Please help!  Follow my blog, “Studio Scoop,” and subscribe to my newsletter “Studio News.” Encourage friends and colleagues to sign up as well.

Not only am I a painter, but also a collector.  I love to lay on my couch and sink into my thoughts while viewing a painting.  I paint my soul and enjoy sharing my soul through my creativity.  Marc Chagall stated it best, “Art seems to me to be a state of soul more than anything else.”
