...and 500

Almost four years ago, I made a very smart creative decision.  I dropped my domain and web hosting to turn the blog I had just begun into a fully functional website.  It's addictive.  It's a compulsion.  It's something I don't know if I'll be able to stop so bear with me and enjoy the ride.  In December 2009, I had about 30 views a month here- mainly friends and relatives.  On average this year, over 18,000 views a month is a nice improvement I'd say! Even more importantly to me, several thousand of those views come from foreign countries.  No gallery walls could gather so many sets of eyes to breathe life into art.  Without audience, art is a simple and mundane action- a tree falling in the forest with nobody around.  However with eyes, it lays bare the questions hidden by the answers and creates conversation which is viral (and vital.)  Thank you all for coming here and sending your folk here.  It reaffirms what I do- keep infecting more!  

The featured dOOdle on this post is my half-millennial homage to DREGstudios.com.  "D" is the Roman Numeral for 500 and the inspiration behind this face I summoned to tell this part of my story.  Come back soon with one love.  -B

    1. The early days as in drinking Jager and Whiskey in your basement and teaching ourselves PhotoShop?
