Tiny Artwork

7 Jul

Painting For Ants is a Tumblr blog that documents a South African artist’s mini-painting project. The artist, Lorraine Loots, produced one mini-painting per day in a year’s time, for a total of 365 insect-sized masterpieces. Fascinating work.

Impressionists From…Australia?

3 Jul

I didn’t know this was actually a thing, but there was an Australian Impressionist movement in the mid-late 19th Century. Some fine work on display in this article.

E-Book is Out

1 Jul

The issues surrounding the publication of my book, Foleytown, have been resolved, and both the e-book and the print versions are available at Authorhouse, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. The e-book is only $3.99, so I expect all five of my regular readers to buy one (just kidding!)

From the book’s blurb:

Foleytown is a special place…a place where there is always a shortage of money but never a shortage of laughs. Follow the children of the large, financially struggling Foley clan as they navigate through “bloody” pomegranate fights, epic games of Christmas Card War, homemade bridesmaid dresses, fears of itinerant serial killers, and the cherished summer tradition they called “Prune-Why-Oh” – all while learning how to grow up in a very unfashionable part of California.

As Jack Lord would have said in 1969, “Be there — Aloha!”
