Espresso with cream

I finally got some work up on Etsy, a collage and four ACEOs.  The collage is called Savage Color.  Imagine an artist who got a bright idea - his color would no longer be ordinary, it would be Savage!  Just being silly. 

My favorite of the ACEOs is called Perfect Manikin.  I love the manikin drawing, cut out of an old artist magazine.  The ad described him as the Perfect Manikin for your needs, and he is.

Haven't been out for coffee in a few days, so no really new work, but I was at Starbuck's really late 2 nights in a row last week.  I'm talking 3 or 4 in the morning, folks.  You strike up interesting conversations when you are there that late.  There was the hospice chaplain, there because he couldn't sleep.  And there was A.Z., one of the night managers, who comes in late to play World of Warcraft and other games when he's not working.  We had a heated discussion about "deaf culture".  A.Z. gave us a lot of information from his own experience about that.  (He is not deaf, but has family who are).  The other friend I was with questioned the anger of some deaf people at hearing people, beyond the confines of just preferring "deaf culture" to "hearing culture".  A.Z.  didn't seem to understand her question, but he did give some interesting insight into the difficulty of learning to use spoken language for someone who cannot hear.  It's almost an unfathomable concept.  The interesting thing about the discussion is that the participants were having trouble "hearing" each other, making sense of what the other was saying, yet everyone involved was "hearing abled".   

Oh well, just give me some glue and paper and I'm good to go.
