just a week after my plea for help from the world in the form of the 'artist's relief fund' paypal button somebody sent me a cashiers check for $1,000. i was so happy. i was giddy with relief. it turned out to be a forgery the bank said and it bounced. it came with no note about what it was for. i'm so glad i didn't draw on it or i'd be in big trouble now.
i am dying to get back to painting again really.
back to the drawing board
going back to the boardwalk
to see if i can find any nuggets of gold
or nougats of art which bump up
against the bow of my ghost ship
it's a lonely cold world of greasy meanies
and madmen and no less mad women
in the drift of a strong current …
