I'm too old and too mean....

I had an email from an art scammer. Well, not really an art scammer, just some cockroach using artworks as a vehicle to get unsuspecting people to part with their money.

Do not fall for an offer to buy your work from someone calling themselves Crystal Moll from New Jersey.

I exchanged emails, explaining I would be glad to ship as soon as they put $$ in my PayPal account or sent me a certified check. Then I got an email from their "shipping agent". I was bored with the game by then and just sent them back the above link.

The whole thing smacked of Nigerian scam. Their game is to send you a worthless check for much too much money and get you to send them back the overage...before you realize their check is rubber.

It's a dog eat dog world out there. Don't get caught wearing Milkbone underwear.

(Man, I loved "Cheers".)


8" X 10" oil on gessoed masonite.  SOLD.

This simple painting is the first in what I hope is a series of birds on wires.  I'm drawn to the simple composition and, well I like to look at birds.  Then there is that cloud thing going on.
