Well this year started  off with a rush of steam. One of my goals was to get representation in a gallery in the Jewelry District in Los Angeles, Ca. Done and Done. Christmas eve started with WW5 with a sister making threats and demands, the evening vastly improved from that point forward. It was all over her take-over of one of my studios..oh well, charges have been filed and we'll see where that goes. Durn Sisti-Uglers.

On a positive note stones are being processed for the upcoming show in Tucson, Arizona. That being the International Gem and Mineral Show. I have gone to this show for over 25 years and it is a highlight way to begin the new year. This is both a buying and selling trip selling finihsed pieces and picking up stones for future works.

Several commissions already taken for works in bronze, looks like a good year beginning to me. New ventures and building in process. Oh, and the usual donations to the disabled Vets in my way of paying it forward.

After the show is a proposal presentation to an new winery out my way for lots of steampunk sculpture and what I call 'ArtScaping' of the grounds and interior of the winery building. Should be a hoot as usual with such projects. Lots of SteamPunk inspired and harmonius 'stuff'.

Best Wishes,

Phineus T.

Happy New Year!

I worked out the profoundness of the celebration for myself tonight, because in reality, it is just another night and day. But in actuality, it is significant, thus: One ends the old games (win or lose) and ends off on the pain and disappointment, and begins anew with great agreement from others that this should occur.

So, I say CHEERS! to new beginnings and a fresh start; a chance to do-over, and to make things better.

Happy New Year, all!

Happy New Year!

Unless you are busy time traveling, of course - in which case there seems to be little point in celebrating such things, really.
