a very different kind of post for me. and a different sort of eye candy.

I don’t think I have ever done this sort of post before.  Don’t know why. I guess I just never thought of it. In fact, if I hadn’t come across a photo card in this room that I thought I had already given to an artist friend we saw only yesterday, I wouldn’t be doing this now.  So I’m glad I found it. I think some of you may be impressed with the work and talent it takes to produce what this lady does.

When we visited our former home in Palm Desert six months ago, we made the rounds as we always used to do, of the various art galleries.  Some of the things on display are eye popping.  It really is on the masochistic side to roam these places because there is no way we could afford much of what we see.  Were I wealthy, I’d be tempted to buy one of the galleries and then live in it.  They have some very nice galleries in PD. They line both sides of the main street, El Paseo. And in between are some pretty good restaurants. Not all and more’s the pity considering how much they charge. You don’t visit that area if you’re on a diet. Or a budget. 

Well, on that last visit we saw this and I think the price was over $1,000.00. I just can’t remember how much.  If we were still in that wonderful and much missed tech, dot com bubble, I might not have given the price any notice.  But things have a way of changing quickly and those days are gone. All I could do was look at all the ‘stuff’ and drool.

I don’t even have the ability to write a letter and keep a straight line with lined paper.  In other words, I simply do not have the eye or talent.
But I admire those who do.

Take a look.

This is her work space.

When she was about four years old, Davis would sit under a tree all day and …“make things.” “I would go down to the dime store and buy a model. I couldn’t read yet, but I’d look at the picture and figure it out. It might not be right, I might make a mess of the glue, but I would work on it, and put something together. I was constantly tinkering and making things from paper, mud, sticks and clay, and looking at things and making animals, just making, making, making—painting, drawing, building.” When she took the required sculpting class in her art program at the University of Utah, she realized that what she’d been doing as a child had a name: sculpture. She immediately knew who she was. After finishing her bachelor degree Davis continued with a Masters of Fine Arts and has been sculpting ever since.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
