I am replaced!


This morning my wildly successful, world-famous art show ended. For about a month, my photographs of library workers with their spirit animals were the talk of the library. Or maybe not the talk of the library exactly, but toddlers clearly loved them, and that's good enough for me!

But today a team of people from the local school district swept in with their own vast array of display racks and their hundreds of pieces of children's art, and just like that my show was done. It now sits in the back workroom of the library dreaming of its ancient glory days of yore.

It is hard to be upset because the new work is so varied and plentiful and charming and creative. It's great! It's got everything from paintings on old record albums to colorful 4th grade renditions of Venice canal houses (did they go on some kind of amazing field trip?) to weird canvasses made out of origami cranes.

I haven't seen all of it, but at one point I was viewing a landscape, and I felt like I was being watched.

I was!

By the stairs, there was a whole wall of paintings of eyes!

Here, I sort of took a picture:

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
