No. They were seriously weird. Lots of sex and drugs. I hate drawing actually. I always have. It’s always been an absolute struggle for me. Why torture myself if I don’t have to? Plus I make money from this crafty shit.
Yes, they were Seriously weird- but that's why I liked them!

You have tons of talent so do what you like.

How much do you make from your pieces?

Hi ttystick,
Thanks for the kind words .
I make a few hundred . It’s better than nothing . Most of my personal work is stored in my portfolio and useless. the shell work is coming to an end I feel. Not sure what will be next.

Ah, so it's not your main income, then.

It's been fascinating to watch your progress.
Your so nice ! I appreciate those kind words . never in a milllion years would have thought one day I would be making seashell collages, so just trying to go with my instinct and vibe. When moving to different parts of the country A part of me wants to acclimate to the environment by making art that has to do with that place . It was very difficult in Oklahoma because I had no connection to the land really so I think that’s why I got so involved with Zombie art. I felt like the living dead being there. My short time in New Mexico was very inspirational. I wish things would have worked out longer there. I can see why Georgia Okeefe loved New Mexico. hoping for the best where I am at now and believe there are great possibilities here. Already I am thinking seriously about the landscape and studying the plants foliage and animals. How have you been doing ?

Oklahoma felt like the living dead and inspired you to make zombie art. Lol, well I think you tapped into the vibe there, for sure!

New Mexico is inspirational for a lot of people, not just traditional artists. I like to think Colorado is, as well.

I really enjoy the colors you've been using with the seashells. They're so good at setting a mood and that's what's special about those pieces for me.

As for me, I've had some life issues and I'm still dealing with those. Right now I'm dealing with a friend who's being suicidal and that's never fun.

Sorry to hear about your personal problems. I hope things get better for you and your friend .

I've done my part; now it's up to them to do theirs. As we get older, the chances of friends and acquaintances passing away from various causes continues to rise. I've lost quite a few over the years. I try to be part of their path back to healthy living but I can't take responsibility for their choices.

Maybe I should do some art, myself.

Busy, busy dude you are, I'd guess constantly? Very passionate, I'd guess. To me life would be a nightmare without a passion. Creativity is mine, I'd guess at least one of yours. It's my magic elixir for this spinning ball of surprises we live on. I must be engaged. I'm somewhat manic, so I hear. I saw your post from 2016......great work....thought maybe a little late to reply. I like how you roll, Dr.

Thanks, No worries, It’s never too late to reply.
yeah, you are correct. I have A lot going on. Jewelry making, shell collage paintings and dragonfly paper collage. I was able to find 2 more skull shark tooth’s and with them made a pair of earrings to match my necklace. What is your creative passion?

I live in a rural area on a lake....tons of natural resources.....passions...weed of course, sculpting rocks, love building with rock, dig clay-process-form and fire in pit by lake, making charcoal, extracting pine oil fom stumps, landscaping is a biggy, poetry (enjoy distilling words), fly fishing, kayaking, sailing, hiking ( always looking for " Indian pipe flower " , music,reading, hanging in my herb room, blah blah, plus I like making whimsical things from old motors an such.....fun, stupid stuff.....kinda bizarre things. Not on ocean, but when there found some pristine Megalodon biggies. My daughter has a hot glass studio across creek ....nice and quiet here. Also have a great passion for good conversation, not always easy to find. My wife makes huge clay monsters........wooden frames, chicken wire stuffed with newspaper and burlap soaked in clay slurry........sets them on edge of lake in front of forest.......freaks lots a people out...love it. Also, homemade UFO's, one of my favs......love pranking people. Yeah I'm probably a tad manic. Big passion for basethounds my whole life....like the pictures, great work....

What are Magalon biggies? You sure do have a lot of interests. Can you show me some of your families art. I would love to see the wife’s monsters and the daughters glass and your UFO stuff. Thanks!
