My playing photographer is just a distraction at the moment. A family member passed away last night and though expected - as he had been battling pancreatic cancer - it is always a hard thing to lose someone. So, I think this (playing photographer) has been a nice distraction, helping me to divert my thoughts a little bit.
Here are a few more pics from around my home. As you can see I do not have a particular style - a little of this and a little of that...and things that reach out and grab hold of my heartstrings. I like things that have paint peeling, nicks and scratches and bumps and bruises. I can't stand for things to match - As long as things are eye pleasing to me that's all that matters. I like things that had a life before me, a story to tell. Everything in my house...has a story to tell.
I collect billiard balls, yes, for real.
Let me ask you something, what is not art? ~Author Unknown

Love the peeling paint.
A Curtis Jere sculpture that has no special spot to call home, yet.

I hope I haven't bored you all too much. :)
