Heh Claro, Been remiss and not visiting MAP too often these days. So much has been happening over the last 2 years including several moves and exhibitions. Next week have one to raise awareness of the plight of moon bears in bear bile farms in Asia. Big do and really living my passion to have my work help stop the suffering of wildlife at the hands of humans. So what about you? Where are you these day? and how is life and art? Your imagery still amazes me. There have been a series of TV documentaries here recently about Lagos. Scary and very interesting. Stay in touch. Thank you for thinking of me! "seeya mate"...b.

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne

People have noe clue as to the thrird world. I know tribalism gives sense of identity. But identety should more ar a national sense. I hit a woman for the first time about a year ago, slapped he, she was talking to a friend of mine and was going on about haw people were startving in Gambia. I said,of the cuff, I'm glad you have a clue. And she halled off anc coldcocked me. Aiming for my nose but i turned my head in time and she coought my ear. Slapped her out of reflex and to keep her from throwing another blow. Freek me out have never hit a woman before. DId not like it
