The Arizona Biennial is coming up. I'm heading to the post office in a few to mail my submission. It's a crap shoot. Yet this year, I think I have a better chance than average, for this piece falls into the wheelhouse of Contemporary Art quite nicely, if you ask me. (Why my other work doesn't is for another time and discussion.) Wish me luck. I'll know in the First of May.

I'm soon to lose the use of my Brownies to make images like this, due to the film no longer being made, but I've gained the use of my iPhone 4S to make them instead. That makes me happy.
Thanks to Terry Etherton's Gallery for having those wonderful, simple, profound Harry Callahan images of Eleanor. I saw them tonight. They inspired me to make this simple, black and white image, about life, death and rebirth.
And I read this image from right to left, (Life, the right tree, Death, the middle tree, Rebirth, the empty horizon on the left), but you can look it anyway you like.
...written about a person they called The Spray Paint Prankster. That would be me. Photographer unknown. He worked for the paper. This photograph was taken inside the Chapel Hill Police Station after I turned myself in...
After a long wait, The Shifting Light: A selection of sixteen stories taken from The Transpersonal Papers: 1861-2010; Flame Spirals; Bozo In Love; Hoop Dancing; and Dementia Blues is now available on Apple's iBooks. It's also available on Barnes & Nobles Nook and on Amazon's Kindle.
And best of all, it's only $2.99. I'm very happy with this sampler and it includes an introduction written by mythic fiction author Charles de Lint. Thank you, Charles.
P.S. Apologies to those who don't have digital access. The Shifting LIght isn't yet available as an analog book book, but hopefully someday.
