nostalgia for business

nostalgia for business

 

‘nostalgia for business’   oil & collage   9″x12″

 

found rare time for some collage

a complicated colourful little homage to Landsdown

makes me smile about an otherwise unfortunate situation

i cannot possibly condone the goings on of the current developers

it will forever be sacred ground for me

i witnessed Miss Jackson’s (…cause i’m nasty) Rhythm Nation tour august 21, 1990

i also remember fondly sitting shotgun as a little girl while my dad did doughnuts in the large empty snow dusted parking lot some cold ottawa winter night in the ’80s

good times

…now i look forward to the fond memories  i am going to make at ‘whole foods’

babes

out of the mouths of…

the first three of an onslaught of responses received from children

what joy!

this first one either says ‘mom’ or it is a sun with two birds …and a whole bunch of other great stuff!

my friends KEEP me human

shoes! of course! yes!

horseshoes don’t count, and while quite possibly useful, those little dog booties i see about town are too undignified to acknowledge

 

my thanks to the kiddies who, without any surprise, find light and positivity

stay tuned…there are many more kids to weigh in

hi there!

this is actually the very first ‘what makes you human?’ postcard to have arrived some weeks ago

it came close from home

 

wmyh? 1

communication is not reserved for humans alone

 

…miscommunication

leaving a creative mark

recorded history

testing (…abusing perhaps these days) the boundaries of communication

having an opinion

taking a stand

this is human

 

and it all starts with a ‘hi there!’
