Meet my friend and QHHT client Jason Hallman, who is an amazing artist from Stallman Studio.  His artwork “Canvas on Edge” is pure eye candy.

Stallman pioneered a new technique using paint and canvas as sculpture, naming this body of work Canvas on Edge. They take canvas and paint and give it a creative edge. Now the canvas has the leading role, creating form, highlight and movement.

The cut edge of the canvas creates an elevated line drawing and when seen at an angle, fields of color emerge as your perspective to the piece changes.

Each length of painted canvas is bonded to itself and to the background creating a rigid structure within the frame.

The hue of the painted canvas reflects on the background creating a spectrum of color. By using reflecting light, pigment and structure they can multiply the hues and tones within each sculpture.

They create together…

I got metaphorically spanked a couple of days ago. Folks have been talking about the Fearless Girl statue ever since it was dropped in Manhattan’s Financial District some five weeks ago.I have occasionally added a comment or two to some of the online discussions about the statue.

Recently most of the Fearless Girldiscussions have focused on the complaints by Arturo Di Modica, the sculptor who createdCharging Bull. He wantsFearless Girl removed, and that boy is taking a metric ton of shit for saying that. Here’s what I said that got me spanked:

The guy has a point.

This happened in maybe three different discussions over the last week or so. In each case I explained briefly why I believe Di Modica has a point (and I’ll explain it again in a bit), and for the most part folks either accepted my comments or ignored them. Which…

What is art?  
How do you define it?  Can you define it?  
Is there art everywhere?

This question is one I ponder often, and recently, more so as I was on the thesis committee for a graduate student seeking a terminal degree in digital/generative art. During her thesis defense, one of the faculty members put out this question (IS IT ART?) and that surprised me. After all, the thesis topic already met faculty approval. I was a guest on the panel having worked with the student on her project and resulting thesis.

The project used art as a tool for students to express themselves and, at the same time, learn an important language for the future – coding. The end result was “art.”  Both the graduate student and I accepted this as the premise. The project was multi-faceted because, although the students were very young, they…

A friend of mine is looking for a house sitter for his cool off-grid home in the Kamaili area of Pahoa, Hawaii.

You must be available to house sit for 6 months … starting on April 10th to the end of October 2017.

This home is remote.  You’ll need to have a car to get around.

This lava built studio is ideal for ONE rugged RAW VEGAN.  There are a couple of big circular openings on the side of the house which are not enclosed by windows.  This means you’ll be living with geckos, mosquitoes and other potential critters.


There’s no kitchen (no place to cook food) or bathroom. There is running water to one sink.  The water comes from rain fall and is stored in a very small 120 gallon catchment container.  Keep in mind … NO RAIN = NO WATER.

Since the rain water is not treated…
