Tax day thought.
I can’t believe I had to write checks to State and Fed that totaled half the amount my parents paid for their home... and I claim zero.

I like art. I really like art that is new and smART. While I was in Paris I discovered this amazing Artist who paints portraits while riding the Metro and uses his ticket as his canvas. He decided to paint wherever you aren’t supposed to paint, even the shower. I can’t imagine that was as successful as his metro tickets. He has learned to cope with the jostling of the train and capturing his subjects on such tiny canvases, think of a business card cut into five pieces. There's a small article about him here. This is his site. And I put a few behind the cut.

I like the idea and the execution. Have you shared these with Jayson? There's a common theme, somehow. Then again, I live by science, so what do I know about art?

I just know what I like.

Tax year hugs...

I can't remember if I told him about it on Easter... I'll have to point him here. I had to look the artist up, I'm so happy he has a site. Jayson has done paintings with Muni tickets in the background. I love flowers of muni.

I've seen some of Jayson's Muni work - I even collected tickets for him!

They are great. Allan had a co-worker who used packets of matches do paint on. We have some framed and hanging in the living room.
