Small bar world

Random story

Not long out of college, I did a commission for an Atlantic City restaurant. It was this 6 foot by 6 foot scene very much out of my subject matter… but I was fresh out of college and gutsy.

Somehow there’s no peripheral story to go with that part. Continue reading “Small bar world”

Some of the cuff links I’ve been making are now available in the Noyes Arts Garage gift shop 🙂

  • Earrings, necklaces, and cuff links made with paint
  • Celestially inspired Swarovski crystal constellation cuff links
  • Sterling moon phase earrings made with Cape May Diamonds

I was single and he seemed funny and harmless enough so when he asked, I gave him my number. We ended up dating for a while before becoming friends. Continue reading “Life boat poetry”
