An original IBL photograph taken August 17th, 2017, in the apartment of Michael Fox, Painter, Long Island City, New York. Michael has hung material to protect the walls when he is working on a canvas - I spied this among the brambles, drips and spatters.

Okay so then there's this. First published in these pages on 10/9/12, it was untitled. But something about it always bothered me - perhaps that it seemed intentionally antagonistic, which I did not mean it to be. I meant it to be a commentary on The Christ's sacrifice for all of humanity, not just for those annoying "Christians Aren't Perfect Just Forgiven" folks. And so it sat around, and I looked at it a bunch of times (over five years). And so but then last week in Kalispell, Montana, I added only the portion of matchbook and it made all the difference to me in conjunction with the eye black I have been using on so many other pieces of late (see A Play in Five Acts on 8/23/17; You Thought God Was An Architect, Now You Know on 1/28/17, and there are others).
So - Pencil, felt pen, crayon, glue and torn matchbook on coaster, 3.5 x 3.5 inches, 9/30/12 (Wedgwood Broiler, Wedgwood, Seattle), and completed on 8/31/17, ScottiBelli's Ristorante, Kalispell, MT.

Return with us now to a post from June 28th, 2014, and BE ASTOUNDED with the text that accompanied a very basic cross titled "Supporting Capital Punishment for 2000 Years Plus" - - -
Original IBL art - ink on torn coaster, 3.25 x 3 inches (cross from 2012 and, well, it had just been hanging around for awhile; torn and titled in Hattie's Hat, Ballard) 6/21/14.
To that we will add this - on August 9th, 2017, at Molly's Shebeen, Manhattan, a piece of matchbook was added as well as the table of contents (partial) from a (cerca) 1925 title page from Twelfth Night that my Aunt Margaret owned as a child all those years ago, and now A Play in Five Acts has been realized.

An adaptation / addition to images posted on May 8th, 2017 - an original IBL photograph taken Friday, February 17th, 2017, at Mother Aerie Eagles Lodge on Lake City Way in Seattle. The chalk on chalkboard is Yours Truly's, too. Didn't think to measure the chalkboard when I was there, but it's probably about 4 feet by 3 feet or something like that. I asked Robin Wood for a song title and she responded with You Are My Sunshine. This was the result.
