I’ve been getting daily hits from viewers in Moscow City, Russian Federation for the last month. Pretty interesting. I suppose that the world, after all, isn’t flat. And the hamlets that we all live in, in a global sense, really are just smallish hamlets. I just shipped a large painting to a very well respected gallery in San Francisco last week. Someone said isn’t it a shame that artists have difficulty showing work in their home states or cities. I said: ‘I don’t think so,’ ‘Willie Nelson wrote country music but couldn’t make it in Nashville.’ The effect of not being accepted in Nashville to Willie: ‘Zero’.
