so many possibilities here. Hm... OK:

Stella - No art is any good unless you can feel how it's put together. By and large it's the eye, the hand and if it's any good, you feel the body. Most of the best stuff seems to be a complete gesture, the totality of the artist's body; you can really lean on it. You know?

Judd -But Frank, I think you have to - whatever the environment looks like, it does enter into people's art work one way or another; it's very remote or it isn't. It's remote in my work but it has to have a certain degree of ordinariness. Right? Or else...

Tyler - Get real, you guys: how do I lose a 6 foot bitch with a talking rock, huh?

I'm not so sure about Frank, Judd or Tyler (who's Tyler?), but this is a wonderful composition! Did you find these like this, or did you arrange them?

Hi Lori
Like the composition and textures you've got here. Very powerful, it would look great really big.
Thanks for your comment on my IA post, and yes it was a small bracket fungus on a dead tree.

Stella is awesome!

I especially like Elaine's critique of his paintings.

LR: *snork*

KNP: I found them like this (one of my "rules of the game" is not to move things I find) and had to wriggle and bend until I framed things the way I wanted. These suckers were big and heavy, so even if I wanted, would have been unlikely to move 'em.

Sharon: Thanks so much for stopping by! That was one awesome fungus you found -- I'll have to go back and see what else you're seeing.

Anon: You nutbar!!!
