Artist notes:


Most of the entries in this journal are ideas for commercial work: menus, signs, t-shirts.  There are only a few "life observations" and, what I will call "visions."

On an autobiographical note, I settle in with a more secure feeling with Eric Head in Asheville.  He has a good job at Champion.  I continue teaching as an adjunct at UNC-Asheville.  Teaching, I find, is something that comes naturally to me.  I credit my father with this.  He taught me how to teach.  Since the fourth grade in grammar school, I had listened (halfway) to his sermons and lectures.  Inadvertently I was being taught public speaking.  Thus I had no qualms about standing before a classroom to instruct in a subject I felt seep in my heart and soul.  Any hesitation or self-doubt lay in the feeling that I did not truly know enough to honestly instruct.  I say this about studio instruction not art history.  Just emerging from deep and prolonged emersion in a master's  program in art history, I was a river of fire behind the art history lectern.  Regardless that art history required much more time in class prep than did studio, I felt secure and confident.  At times I may have been over zealous.  However , I felt that my love of the subject required that I imbue it with energy.  I was determined, or, rather I should say hopeful that art history could gain more relevance to my art students.
