Last break from the painting by Debbie Slowey Raguso

As the CHF article says I balance production verses promotion and this morning I am back in front of St Joan painting. I am finishing up with a quick blog post. Seth Godin is a respected marketing person that I have read a bit of and bought some books on tape for my vacation travel times. I just found out he went to the same high school as me in the class below me. I remembered I liked him so I tried to friend him in social media. What a dream that would be to have direction in this new world order of art business marketing to have a star like him on board.

Working on that “Artist statement” which seems to be always developing- ……I blend modernist and traditional art painting techniques into stories with animal and/or animals with people in a symbolic, imaginary world. The artworks subjects are drawn from current events of interest, science, math or the spiritual/symbolic happenings I in the world. Though a mediative process of particular people areas of iconography are also present.

The Chestnut Justify is the 13th Horse to win the Triple Crown by Debbie Slowey Raguso

Justify's beauty running down the track at Belmont was made even more beautiful by the Jockey, Mike Smith. He gave testament to a faith of being everything we can be with gracious humility; giving credit to God.

Here is Justify with a crown of glory as a Unicorn. 

This is one of 7 original, signed, reduction lino block prints 8" x 10".

Last art made 2017 and 1st art of 2018 "Opossum" by Debbie Slowey Raguso


This opossum attacked my chickens.  The Rooster stepped in but got battered. When I frantically tried to shoo it from the coop--                     opossum turned toward me!



Yes the poor creature would have killed the chickens and would have hurt me too; had to take it's life. I feel bad as I know all God's creatures have a golden side, a useful side. Opossums, as I researched, eat a multitude of Ticks. They keep the Lyme disease from the tick born virus away from us.
