Self Portrait

Without any warning, and at the last minute- they cut off my  Gaines  Supplement. they had to know earlier and why didn’t they warn me. But it’s a drop in the bucket, 255$ That’s 5 pictures at 50$ or 10 at 25. Only one has been sold in about 10 years, I mean minutes. They’re clamouring,  My phone is ringing and I’m hallucinating. I can do this.

wait this could be like a Rent Party.

yes it will be a Rentery Auction Sale and I will continue to have a place to live.

noble thought Miss Babs.

I owed one month rent and here we go again.  They  add on costs, I.e. Bounced check fee, which adds up. The robotized calculator just continues thinking , do it again, something is not calculating. It too has a tumour and goes for a scan Monday. Cancer runs in the family.

Another World Lung Cancer Day to Celebrate, I’m here Where’s the Cure?

In response to many lung cancer sufferers,  I would say they feel stigmatized, as people will ask ,”Were you a smoker? As if t,his makes it their fault and so no sympathy can be expressed. You deserve what you got. Is ignorance the cause. The cigarette magnates deny the harm inherent in their products. They smile and deny it. You did it , now you pay. OK I admit I was a smoker.

I grew up in rebellious times. I loved the Marlboro man and his horse.

I went to horseback riding camp and the stall hands taught us how to smoke, no arts and crafts, just horses and stable guys, who were sort of cute. The 3 other girl campers, we just loved to ride and look for excitement in the stable. Cigarettes vs. hanky-panky. Were we sparred?  I went home a virgin but not a virgin smoker.

Not much else I remember about that camp except we put a bunch of aspirins in a coke, shook it up and split it 4 ways walking back. Strange, that is the only visual memory I have and  a boy shoveling shit in the stall. Nah I wouldn’t even paint a picture about that place. Wait, on my to do list.

Blame me? I was 12 years old. Blame the Marlboro Man he raped my lungs and chained me up.

Here’s the image: A kid on a horse, riding backwards, hands tied, a cig hanging from her lips.And Mr. Marlboro Man snapping a whip.

Unable to legally buy smokes I stole them from my Dad. He had a Urn filled with butts; the longest I smoked. One day they, my parents, came home while I was cigarettea. Quickly thrown into the butt urn, sSmouldering it eventually lit all the other butts filling the second floor with smoke, and firefighters.

how did this happen they asked, scratching their heads,looking at me. 55 years later, a confession came, right here. O.K.

So how did  men get prostrate cancer?  Did they put their  penis’s in  a smoker? No confession here.

Hey Mr. Marlboro Man…

David lost in space, lost in Music.

It’s funny , even to me , when I draw two pictures or perhaps it’s rather obvious. Two moods and the ladies reflect these so differently but much the same.

Thanks to Ontario Arts Council for enabling my show last year at the Marie Schchuka Library . I am always grateful to have my work shied for your enjoyment.

Thanks to the Council. Although this piece was not in my Library  show at Marie Schiever, I want to thank them again for their assistance.

JAZZ IS still alive, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE Queen of Jazz leads the band

Jazz is alive especially while the Queen is on stage. Fern Lindzon not only plays the piano, but she sings, dances ( under the piano) composes and was nominated for an award for one of her songs. The way she carasses each note felt like diamonds in my ears.

Fern Lindzon studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music; and she ,enjoyed being back where her training began and was honed to be the talent that shines and touches the listener’ s soul.

I have some serious health concerns but not once did my thoughts even go there.

Loving Jazz and listening  to the greats (my training) I feel I can say Fern Lindzon is truly a Toronto treasure.

Thanks again ! It was amazing. Awesome.

Jazz is certainly exalted when the Queen is on, our Fern hits the stage. Her choice of songs were like diamonds to my ears,  amazingly new, and old, fun.
The Royal Academy of Music is Fern’s alma mater and she loved playing here again.
The Academy should be so proud for this is where she built her, solid  foundation, and then she took off.
I have some serious health concerns but not once did my thoughts even go there when I listened and drew.

Loving Jazz and listening to the greats (my training) I feel I can say Fern Lindzon is truly a Toronto treasure.

Thanks again! It was amazing. Awesome.
