Susuie, one of the friends listed at your site, is ill. A get well letter would do her heart good and cheer her up a bit. We live in a world that does not apriciate art. We must care for eachother. L John TOX


Hello barartist, Yes my sentiments exactly ,Turn everything or anything into art! I am a Scorpio with Aries rising and moon, so I guess I have a bit of Aries in the mix:) I'm certainly impatient enough! I used to go to car boot sales when I lived in England, sadly they do not egsist here in the states. My latist thing is to go to the local dump(Tip) shop, I have found all sorts of interesting things there that I have then turned into my art. I love it. Thanks for your comments about my work! ;)Lenke

Tangled web is my favorite, but I love the idea of using the bottle caps, etc..................very cool!

They are very beautiful indeed. I love those portraits. I can relate to you how you feel after finishing one piece of mosaic after toiling for many hours/days/months. I bet it's a satisfying feeling. Fantastic work.
