Lab Monkey Death Dream

This was Painted several years ago in protest, when I read a report of animal abuse: Hideous experiments on Monkeys, Dogs and other animals. Many Artists who paint dark destructive scenes have a soft spot for animals. I do believe that in today’s society, there are other ways to sufficiently gain lab results without abusing animals.

The Frog Pond Mystery

I built a small Pond about 4 years ago and surrounded it with Rose, Lavender, Mint and other blooming plants. It has a fountain in the center and was used basically for decoration. A couple years ago, a bunch of Water Frogs moved in. I am not sure where these frogs came from, as the closest water source is a small creek about two blocks away. I end up with about 6 Frogs each year – and after mating season, a pond full of Tadpoles.

The Gothic Steampunk Gardens

Most of my Gardens are not really Gothic or Steampunk. However, I have started to incorporate Gothic and Steampunk elements into some of the Mini Gardens. Here are just a couple photos of the beginning works. I will Blog more about the Gardens and share more Photos as the Gardens progress...

The Beauty of Travel

I have traveled quite a bit in my life. From Miami to NY to San Francisco to much of the United States - the Bahamas; Mexico; Prague; London; Paris; Belgium; Copenhagen, Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland… The list goes on.
I would really love to inspire others to get off their Ass and Travel! The world is an amazing place to visit. The Map is NOT the Territory – see it in person. Live in another country for a while – experience this planet. I have lived in and visited many places. Enjoy this huge mud ball floating through space. It is quite an experience!

Modern Alchemy

"The eternal quest of Alchemists – to change base metals into gold – was actually achieved to a certain degree in Soviet nuclear reactors, where radioactivity transformed some Lead nuclei into Gold."   --Discovery Magazine
