2013 - 2015

The post Belen Art League Years


2013

I started out the year by re-inventing this website with the cool, updated software provided by SBI.  This online exhibit grew and expanded quite nicely.  I also established two new online stores for prints and merchandise.


I engaged Fine Art America as my print and card supplier and started an online gallery there with 35mm photographs I've displayed previously.  I very much enjoy having an online gallery that's available to everyone in the world instead of being limited to a small town brick and mortar gallery.  They print on demand, on a variety of substrates, and even do matting and framing.


Zazzle is an exciting provider of print on demand products bearing my images.  My virtual exhibit there includes home decor items, games and wearables.  Of course I've designed treasure boxes for your jewelry and "pieces of eight".




2014

This year brought me more.  More work on Fine Art America and more products on Zazzle.


Thank you to all wonderful people who’ve discovered my products on Zazzle.  I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to solve your gift wrapping problems with my bow stickers.

Darlene Hansen, the producer of the Duke City Shootout film “Young Gun” from 2007 died after a long illness.  She was my favorite producer and a wonderful multi-talented person.  Known as a casting director she was also a dancer and wrote a book on palmistry.  I'm honored to have called her my friend.




2015

2015 was a year of growth, discovery and breakthrough for me, but not very productive.  Metaphysically I started a new transformation and expect it to bring incredible things.  This proverbially late bloomer is blooming.

December 28th

Early that morning, after pulling an all-nighter, I had a stroke and went into the hospital for a week. My right/dominant side was affected and somewhat paralyzed.
