About The Artist

My photo
Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

In a Galaxy, Far Far Away....

As I mentioned last Monday, I was up in Santa Fe on Sunday afternoon. Enroute to the NM Museum of Art, I saw this mailbox. Those of you "young" enough to remember—or who had kids back in the 70's—will recognize this mailbox dressed up to look like R2D2, the little droid from the Star Wars movie that was so popular 30 years ago.

The web address on the mailbox is www.uspsjedimaster.com—which is a registered domain of the US Post Office....but there's no website. No problem, as plenty of other folks have created website with info and "sightings."

For those of you who are wondering if there's an R2D2 mailbox in your neighborhood or city, check out this site link below, which is a US map with pictures and locations of the Star Wars mailboxes across the United States.


So, until Thursday's post, "May the Force be with you."

I have just finished looking at all posted paintings and comment and it was so interesting and lovely to look at. I know that you will be conducting a panel on ways to show and sell art at the January evening Rainbow Artists meeting in Albuquerque. If you care to invite any of your viewers, please do so - I'm sure they would enjoy hearing directly from you. best regards, Thora
