A virtual home makeover

Part of my (uncertain) New Year resolutions included to make my online life a little more manageable. And being back to the healthy habit of writing about my art, terribly neglected since many months ago, after moving with my daughter to the Northwest. In times of all-things-fast-food, when even art gradually becomes part of the big scheme of rapid consumption and temporary awe, to be forgotten shortly after new images representing the new trend invade the internet, speaking about your art could be salvation from the lack of substance, and I […]
