I’m setting the intention that I WILL return to Seattle in August to take part in the Superfine Art Fair! I’m in the fair, I’m super ready for a fine road trip.
Will the fair happen? Will gatherings of “more than X” be allowed? Fingers crossed!

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!
At Victoria County Safety Rest Area, near Inez, TX. 3/31/14
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?
Day 25 Photo Challenge June 25, 1967. Broadcasting of the first live global satellite television program took place on this date. It was a show called Our World. Without the invention of the camera, we would not have television. Today is your last photo challenge! This one may seem difficult, but you can do it! Using your camera, take a video about Your World and share it. Alternative: Post a picture representing the number 25. It can be twenty-five items, twenty-five people, or something showing the number 25. Alternative: Post a gallery of 25 photos that have a shared theme. You can cheat a bit on this one and post five galleries each with five photos having a shared theme.
For giggles, I added this to Patti’s Visible Monday. Wish I still had that dress. Wish I could find that fabric! It’s stripes of cotton (yellow, looking light grey) alternating with stripes of transparent rayon (black parts). Dress came from Fiorucci.
