By now, if you’re a regular here, you know this site is all about the art — the art of trucks! (haha).
I have a lot of blogs, with different angles on my many interests (here are ALL my links). I started this blog to learn WordPress, in anticipation of changing my art website to a WordPress platform. Mission (more or less) accomplished.
My latest art (promotional) activity has been focused on art fairs, since I no longer am with a gallery.
I took the trucks to The Beverly Hills Art Show two weeks ago and didn’t sell any. Boo.
This week, I’ve been working on an application for the Luxembourg Art Prize and uploading my work to Saatchi Art. I’m concentrating on my 2014 On the Edge: US series and have been updating all the images in a new desktop version of Waterlogue[I was comped a copy for being a beta tester]. This new version has been great for my road trip photos, since I like need to edit them and I am able to do a much better job in Photoshop vs editing on my phone, which I currently do for the trucks.
Day 29 Track Twenty-nine June 29, 1896. The St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad Company (predecessor of the St. Louis – San Francisco Railway) is incorporated. In the old Glen Miller song “The Chattanooga Choo Choo” the train departs on Track 29. Have you ever ridden a train? Write a post about a train. Tell us about train ride you have taken or one you’d like to take. Make up a story about a train or write a poem featuring a train. Share pictures of trains. Your choice!

Day 26 Marathon June 26, 2016. Marathons are being held today in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; Santa Cruz, California; Lubec, Maine; and Arlington, Virginia. The race in Arlington is indoors. A marathon is 26.2 miles. Marathoners don’t start out running 26.2 miles! They start small and train for it. They work hard to reach that distance. Tell us about something you worked for. Something you thought you might never accomplish, but you did.
On the Edge: US
In 2014, I did a solo drive, circumnavigating the contiguous 48 US states on US highways and Interstates as close to the perimeter as possible. 31 states, 32 driving days, 12772 miles.
Most memorable roads?
