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.
