Why am I using the last few minutes of this stunningly, stupidly perfect fall day--its pristine, crystalline shards of yellow-green silently tinkling at the window--to talk about me?

It's one of two things:

--ego

--the need to tell a story (code for "I want...

Short, stop-motion movie about the making of Ent-omology, a 2012 painting inspired by the impossible magical realism of Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

I have my friend, Tim, to thank/blame for this painting, as he gave me a small book about Arcimboldo a couple of years ago.  I wa...

This week I watched (again) the 1945 version of The Picture of Dorian Gray (Albert Lewin directing Hurd Hatfield, George Sanders, Angela Lansbury), a rich blackish-brown-and-white film, smothered with exotic visual cream sauce--Hurd Hatfield's visage is like a white po...

 Betsy Ross by Ann Huey ~ July 4, 2015 ~ acrylic ~ 8 inches round

It was about 3:00 a.m.-ish

("a.m." as in "after midnight", not "a.m.-ish" as in "Amish"),

as I left the studio--

In April, 2001, I went to Wilton, Connecticut, for an artist’s residency at Weir Farm National Historic Site.  The farm was the weekend home of American Impressionist, Julian Alden Weir, and is the only National Historic Site dedicated to an American artist.  It...

   Herewith are cat-themed greeting cards I produced to sell at my friend Chris Unruh's shop, MakersConnect, in East Dallas.  It's a super fun place to learn how to make stuff or to visit and see inventive, locally-crafted creations before they're knocked off over...

Whether she's simply wonderful, from hell, alive or dead, everyone has had one:  a mother.

Oh, sure, we've all known a few sorts who were more likely concocted in a bathtub or spawned by a something with scales, but, come on, it's Mother's Day, when...
