the surf and are, therefore, ideal for painting. He does not attach
anything to the rock, or chisel pieces of it away; he prefers to work with
the shape provided by nature. The natural imperfections, such as chips,
streaks or holes, often work to his advantage; a rock with one edge broken
off became the half-eaten side of an apple.

ILLEGAL MAIL ART .....Growing up behind the iron curtain makes even the most elementary letter a tool of subversion. Correspondence with Westerners is tightly censored and controlled. The letters have a lengthy two week delay to allow snooping KGB gents to x-ray, xerox and translate all mail. The only way to communicate with the outside world of freedom is to code everything.-----sketches, studies and drawings----woman with goat---more david butler's enamel on tin---Inez Nathaniel Walker: Visionary Folk Artist ----ink poems ----"When people tell me they aren't creative, I say, 'On the contrary, my little cabbage, you are creative, and your creativity is manifested in your job, home, cooking, clothes, garden, entertaining or the overall way you live your life.'"--james yang illustration---jane wynn says “ Every object has a right to be heard.” ----Welcome to the Folk Art Pages.Howard Finster, 1916-2001 ----Just for Openers was founded in 1979 by Don Bull of Wirtz, Virginia.

Robert Rauschenberg once wrote " A pair of socks is not less suitable to make a painting than with wood, nails, turpentine, oil and fabric."--- "Even Angels have Bad Hair Days"---"First Communion" Assemblages----more Jacque Parsley---"To My Valentine"---Parsley's work reflects partly told tales, a moment in time that gives a nostalgic visual narrative of memories that have been recycled, and a past that has been reinterpreted. These shrines to unknown individuals have a Karma that is still unfolding to create a new paradigm. ----"Angel In Repose"---Marvin Finn: Wizard of whimsical whittling --“Every object is created with it’s own specific purpose in life. Then I find it… and it is awakened and delivered…” As I create mixed media sculptural works, I find myself working in an intuitive manor. Whether I find the object or the object finds me, I fit together a personal narrative and create an odd mixture of the past and the present. ---the loss of a valuable object or even the loss of time----Bakers Dozen Collage Exchange ---

In 1907, the Belgian-born scientist L.H. Baekeland invented Bakelite, one of the first plastics ever made. It was an inexpensive alternative to more natural materials, and proved to be an excellent insulator against heat and electricity, and fire resistant too. That's why it was used for kitchen appliances, such as toasters, and other household consumables, such as radios. ---Welcome to the site of the Bakelite and Plastic Museum.
