What with global warming and such we seem to be experiencing extreme weather more often these days. I've never seen an Aurora Borealis like that before! Showers of fishes? Raining for 40 days and 40 nights? What sort of weather will you predict? Have fun!

Thinking Diamonds Could Cure Her Melancholia, Marla Only Set Herself Up To Become a Victim of Robbery
In ancient India, it was believed that diamonds would cure insanity and infections and were even injected into the bladder to break up bladder stones. Ancient Hindus were very careful to use only the highest quality diamonds in their medical practices, as diamonds of inferior quality were thought to cause leprosy, lameness, or jaundice.

With apologies to Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) for using a portion of "Business Lunch", 1946, oil and sand on canvas, 36 5/8 x 47 1/4 inches. Mother and Johnnie from a vintage advertisment.
Oh my this is a moldy oldie! I made this collage about 20 years ago (therefore it is Old Fashioned!) and it has been a part of a book of collages I forgot about. I pulled the page to scan it and just titled it. Cannot remember where any of the images came from. I always liked the sheet music I applied to the bannister.

A dear friend of mine recently died. He was/is my best friend, in fact—always will be. So I'm in the throes of it.
Background is hand-marbled paper from India. Hydra by Albertus Seba (1665-1736).
What's old-fashioned about this? The seven-headed hydra is a very old-fashioned monster.

Got this one in under the wire! I've been dealing with a broken toe and a biopsy of a suspicious mole (same foot!) and have not been in the mood to create or do much of anything but elevate said foot. But I thought about this theme and all I could think about was a flattened out view of the world. So here it is!

This was the theme for a mail art show I hosted back in the 80's. I've always liked the title - which originally came from a song by a gospel group - who's name escapes me? Anyway, might be fun to try it here. Good hunting!
