It takes some grace to ride a horse.

Hang-gliding Mohawk

Nothing like the feel of the wind through your mohawk.

Waiting in Line

Standing in line for the Avalanche at the Johnson County Fair.

My Little Rhino

I have no idea what the hell this means.
Your guess is as good as mine.

2 Gauges

More studio work involving closeup fun.

Weston Cemetery

Very cool grave marker,it really stood out in this old cemetery.
There's nothing like laying on the dirty ground in the 104 degree heat
to get the shot you want.

Rust on Rust

Funky fire hydrant from a recent trip to Weston Mo.
I like the red on rust on chipped paint,nice textures.


Some new studio work with some old thingies.

A Man on a Mission

My Dad working on a collage with his usual intensity. Nothing like a creative mind at work on a new project. I always admire his work ethic and range of talents. I was truly blessed to come from such a talented family.

Funky Blue Chair

Just go find a chair and relax in the great outdoors.

More closeups



Some of the beautiful flowers in my Mom and Dad's garden. Just another visual reminder of the wonder of summer.

Me and My Arrows

Just follow the arrows,they will lead somewhere unexpected.

Downtown Building

Nothing like sunset to bring out the colors,the reflections and the texture of old buildings.

The Kite Festival

Even though there wasn't enough wind at the Kite Festival,the kids still had fun. It could have been raining and the kids would still be having fun. It's all about attitude and energy...if you have the right attitude then you have the energy to have a good time.

More Kite Running

The Ceiling

Interesting old light fixture in the Livestock Exchange building,one of the coolest buildings in KC. I enjoy walking around this building at sunset when the light comes glowing through the windows and hallways. It's a wonderful place to have a studio,I'm so lucky to be there. There's great creative energy in that building and some great talent working there.

Fun Fellows About Town

These guys look like fun and ready for just about any adventure. I need to adopt their attitude.

Flag and Construction Site

Found this scene on a lunchtime walk around Union Station. Part abstract and part political. Make of it what you will.

Funky Birdhouses

Just some funky birdhouses hanging on a light pole in the Crossroads Art District. One of my favorite places in KC,full of art,eats and odd stuff. These creations are across from Leedy-Voulkos Art Center,another gem in this city.

Lindberg at the Bemis Center

Took a trip recently to Omaha to see the final days of an exhibition at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts with some work by Anne Lindberg. Her installation of thousands of colorful threads in the corner of the room is amazing. This photo in no way does it any justice,it's mesmerizing. You stand in front of it and it just vibrates with color and light. So worth the trip.


Omaha has some great outdoor sculptures, their placement is really intriguing. There were animals all over downtown protruding from buildings. Nice touch.

Cool Clock

Can't get enough of these clocks. The numbers,the neon,the reflections,love it all.

Melting Bench

Love this bench just outside of the Bemis Center,brilliant use of materials and location.

Leaves in Linen

Cloth that has been rolled up with eucalyptus leaves inside and left to stain a beautiful pattern on them.


Some crazy embroidery on a patterned paper towel,cool idea.

Amazing Weaver

One of the artists,Erin M Riley, at the Bemis Center involved in the Open Studios. She made some really amazing photo-realistic weavings. Not your usual themes on woven materials.

The Science Fair

I just love the Science Fair,so much imagination and creativity. It gives you hope for this crazy world.

Mold and More Mold

Once again,just like last year, mold was a big hit at the Science Fair. Who knew?

Whoa! What Did That Sign Say?

Whorls,people,whorls! Get your mind out of the gutter,for crying out loud! I also like the part about "Comparing Fingerprints and Toe Prints". This should help dramatically with all those foot-related crimes that have been happening lately.

My Exact Thoughts on Eating Out

Evidently,these researchers have been frequenting the same restaurants as I have.

Born What Way?

When I first saw this exhibit,I thought the Science Fair was tackling some heavy social issues. Then I read the fine print.

Fear of Juice

It's good to see someone is working on research into the fear of juices. A much neglected malady.

Bubbly Discovery

I'm so proud of my niece and her partner's winning exhibit. They worked really hard on this project and it shows. There's nothing like bringing home the gold ribbon to make the family proud.

Colorful Muffin

Well,if this years St Joseph's table is any indication of the culinary trends for 2012,it looks like it's going to be the year of tasteful colors and over-sized muffins. I'll get the Gaviscon ready.

Sicily Cake

I love subtle design......and gallons of food coloring.


Okay,eggs made of sugar and icing. Kind of seems like an Easter sort of thing but what do I know? I'm still trying to figure out the gumdrop dress thing.

Present Cake

You know,my birthday is coming up. You want to know what kind of present to get me? Yeah....present cake.

Gumdrop girl

When people ask me what's my favorite type of woman,I tell them a woman wearing dress made of gumdrops. It's like candy and fashion all mixed together in one outfit. Hey,Tim Gunn,pay attention,we need more gumdrop dresses out there.

Top Notch Signage

Well,when you spend all your time on baking desserts,you tend to forget about advertising and marketing. Just tape a piece of cardboard to the wall and be done with it. Remember: the more time you spend making a nice sign then the less time you have to eat desserts.

Book Cake

Well,it must be March in Columbus Park,and that means the The Feast of St Joseph complete with a wide assortment of baked goods.Oh look,my favorite kind of cake. The pages are delicious.
