More works in progress

I just started this one...

Bummer, I just googled "Hillary Clinton and Flowers" and realized I have to change the name of my show.
I'm not referencing Hillary leaving flowers for the Virgin of Guadeloupe, by the way.

Back to the drawing board!

Flowers for Hillary everywhere!

Today I got quite a shock when I decided to peek my head out of my studio door.
I was inside painting "flowers for Hillary" when something made me crack open my blue door and step out into that disaster area I call my yard.

Yikes! They're everywhere!

I honestly didn't know my yard had been over-taken with flowers.
Here in Southern Arizona I believe in the "tough love" theory when it comes to gardening, which means I almost never water my plants and do my best to ignore my yard.

Imagine my surprise!
Stay tuned, I've got a lot of flowers for Hillary to paint today!

This ain't no party, this aint no disco...

...or is it?

Hillary Disco, Hillary Disco, Hillary Disco.....
I'm pretty sure this is what they are REALLY talking about.

Astounding abilities to trivialize... who, me?

Europe or bust!

For the last couple of years I've had an overwhelming desire to have an art show in Europe.
Besides an amazing family trip to Germany when I was in art school ( thanks Mom and Dad!), I've never really been there.
Just a few days ago it occured to me to ask myself this question...
"Why am I waiting around for someone to ask me to have an art show in Europe?"
Duh, it's time to make this happen!

So there I am, ruminating on which country would most appreciate a Hillary Clinton INTERNATIONAL art show, and along comes
in my favorite Hillary blog, All Things Hillary Clinton.

...and the winner is.......



Is Kosovo even a country?
I'm confused!

Kosovo is a territory that is only tenuously recognized as a country by the United Nations, due to the actions of our very own, Bill Clinton.
A country clinging to the Clinton's coattails for fear of extinction?

This I can relate to.

Tell me more!

The anatomy of my brain

Hill Noir

I guess I should stop sitting here trying to think of all the different kinds of stone ( limestone, soapstone, granite-stone, flintstone, Sharon Stone) and get cracking onto today's theme.... Hill Noir.

Ready or not...

Hour two of my "Ready or Not" painting for the Hillary show. I had too many things to do before heading to work today to get more than an hour in...excuses, excuses...

Lucky for me, I'm a speed painter.

Here's what I painted...

I took an old scrapped Hillary painting, and completely repainted it.

I'm considering calling myself a "startist", because I'm pretty good at starting paintings and never finishing them.

Oh, I forgot to mention that part of the rules of this game are if I don't really like the art, I can play with the color adjustments.

Fair's fair.

I'm just starting to get loose, this is going to be fun!

Ready or not

"Ready or not", it's a new game I'm going to play.

As I only have 6 weeks to basically make all the art for the "Flowers for Hillary" show,
I will post the piece I am making each day, "ready or not".
I'll post it before the sun goes down, so I can still take a decent photo of it.

Here's the first installation of "Ready or Not".

I started this one about an hour ago. It's drawn on tin.

Hour one down, and a hell of a lot to go.

Stay tuned for more fun and games with "Ready or Not"!

Hillary in the sky....

...with diamonds!

The storm is gathering in my mind as to my up-and-coming Hillary Clinton art show.
I think the show will have a medieval feel. Hillary angels with eagle wings dancing in the air.

This morning I'm gathering angels from an old, disintegrating book I have.

Note to self: don't forget Queens, castles, and mythical Goddesses.

And she said.....

I couldn't quite hear that, wha'd she say?

Fill in the blank....

Please send your suggestions.

Let me clarify this

I've decided to give a speech and slideshow at my art opening which will be modeled after this all-time great speech....

The birth of Hillary Clinton Island

I have a bit of a cold today,so I decided to take a mid afternoon nap.
I was mid slumber, probably dreaming something about Hillary, when I heard rap-rap -rapping at my door.

It was none other than Chew-mee Moore, mumbling something about the birth of Hillary Clinton Island.
I really couldn't make out most of it, but what's new?

He,( or is it she?) eventually made it clear that he wanted a doll from my Barbie collection.
I was reluctant about giving away one of my Hillary dolls, so I forked over a Michelle doll instead.
He immediately decapitated it with a machete, and popped on a birdhead where her real head used to be.

He mumbled something about a bird Goddess, and tore off in his jeep.

I would like to think it was just a dream, but there's now a bird Goddess and the Hillary Clinton Island diorama in my living room.

Chess, anyone?

Mother Eagle has landed!

The date is set for the "Flowers for Hillary" art show.
The opening will be Saturday, May 9th, at the Candelabra Gallery
in Tucson AZ.

Oh look, I have Hillary's blessing!

You too can have Hillary's blessing for the low, low price of 49.95 plus shipping!

Absolut Hillary

Has anyone done this obvious one yet? I couldn't find any evidence of it on the web...

VOTE HERE in Time Magazine's poll, if you think Hillary is one of the top 100 most influential people in the world.
She is currently number 37. I think we can improve that number.

Flowers for Hillary

I'm in the process of nailing down my Tucson art show. It will be called "Flowers for Hillary", thus allowing me to broaden my theme a bit. Plus it allows me to build shrines with lots of flowers and candles.
I wanted to add "Plushies" into the title, but decided it was inappropriate.

"Demure for a moment"

I have to check on a thing or two before nailing down the date, but I believe it will be May 9th. It's Mother's day weekend, but it's been suggested I not to mention that.

Today I meet with a woman who is writing a book about the "Hillary Clinton Army". Believe it or not, it is to be published as "how-to" manual for a different approach into politics. She actually has a squad of people interested in this.
Who knew?

By the way, I need a sub-text for "Flowers for Hillary",
something that will grab the attention of Tucson hipsters.
You know......


Or whatever....

Anyone got any ideas?

The most glamourous day of the week

Sunday.... the most glamourous day of the week.

Excerpt from 'The Glitter Book"

A day that even Hillary might allow herself a 5 minute break.
A day when I promise myself that I will stop my procrastinating.... tomorrow.

And now, without further adieu, I bring you some cheesy 80's Liza running in the rain.....

Spring is Hillary

Spring is Officially here, which makes me think of my favorite holiday... Easter!

I love the colors, the reawakening and rejuvenation symbolism, the rabbits, Easter egg hunts, and the baby ducklings.
Oh ya, and you don't have to actually do anything that day but walk around, look at flowers, and eat candy.
What's not to love?

Allow me to point out that there is nothing more Easter-like than Hillary Clinton.

She's got the colors, she's got the themes, she makes me believe in all things bright and groovy.

But wait, this just keeps getting better!

This year Easter falls on April 12th.
"Why does this date seem so familiar?" I ask myself.
Then I remember....

It's David Cassidy's Birthday! ( Note to self: Shirley's is coming up soon too).

Do the math:

Hillary+Partridge Family=Easter

The plot thickens...

Still more totally useless Hillary Clinton knock-knock jokes

Somebody stop me!

Lucky for everyone, I have to go to work now!

More totally useless Hillary Clinton Knock-knock jokes

I can't believe I just wasted my time on something so stupid.

I'm just procrastinating getting started on my life's work.

I forget....what's my life's work supposed to be again?

On my wish list

Tops on my wish list.... a set of original 1969 "Laugh In" flicker rings.

I just thought I'd mention it.

Totally useless Hillary Clinton knock-knock jokes

Anyone want to take a crack at answering this?

I added some flags and some more flag decals to the Hillcar INTERNATIONAL today.

Funfact: the hills in the distance are in Mexico. I thought I'd mention that since it's an INTERNATIONAL car and everything.

Hill-sprites in the night

I woke up last night to a Hill-sprite dancing in the air.
She was singing something.

"What, what did you say, Hillary?"

By the time I figured out what she was singing... she was gone.

More Hillary Clinton Saint Patrick's day fun!

Yellow hearts, green stars , orange clovers.... or something like that....

Hillary's comment today regarding Northern Ireland....

"It’s a great chance now for us to see real prosperity for the people there and lasting peace".
I'm pretty sure she's talking about Pot's O' Gold here.

Hillary Clinton Pot O' Gold...revisited!

Hillary Clinton St. Patrick's day fun!

Coloring Book fun!

Well, color it in yourself, Jeez! Do I have to do everything around here?
