the right questions are key to a good interview, as evidenced by the upcoming interview of me by jewel in the online version of numb magazine. she did an awesome job of asking the right questions at the right time. a good interview teaches the interviewee as much as the interviewer. i enjoyed it so much i want more, so, please, if you have a few minutes, ask me about my art. anything you have wondered, anything that comes to mind, no matter how off the wall or mundane. i will relish the answering.

buddy has become quite obsessed with capturing the elusive spots of light. in the morning, when the sun peeks through the shades at an angle, and shadows dance alongside reflections from my watch or his tag, he is fixated, adrenaline pumping, that little propeller on his butt spinning at warp speed. he jumps on them, only to have them disappear as he blocks the source. he tries to bite the spots off the wall, over and over. poor guy is destined to lead a life of frustration.

i just discovered there is a distortion in my digital camera lens. normally it would go unnoticed, but i was trying to take pics of a rectangular painting today, and no matter how parallel to the picture plane i am, one side of the rectangle is distorted. the top of my image skews down to the right. i know it isn't my aim, because that corner is screwed up no matter how i stand. aim would affect more than one corner anyway. i take shots where three sides of the canvas are parallel to the edge of the image, and that upper right curves down. i can work around the problem with some paintings by cropping, but ones like this i am f#%@d because there is a border painted into the canvas that would be cut off.
