Authors & Artists

Art - final cover by Jack - Pappy Butler & His Zero Time Theory

New this year at Madera County Library’s Author’s Day is the inclusion of works of art done by the various authors participating. I have to admit, right up front, that I had nothing to do with this event, now called “Authors and Artists Day.” It will be in two weeks on Saturday February 4 at Madera County Library main Branch, 121 North G Street, Madera, California.

So, this event kicks off the spring book tour for Pappy Butler & His Zero Time Theory. Plus The Confederate flag painting called The Attack which I painted in 2015 will be on display there too. Besides seeing this painting, which is not small at 48 x 48 inches, it will be interesting to meet other authors and seeing any other art being shown. To view The Attack painting up close, mark your calendars and come on down, Saturday February 4.

Art, writers, galleries

Checked out the “art profiles” site posted by Anna Hergert here, a WordPress site. I really appreciated that and the other art things. Don’t get me wrong, but, as much as I like working on the writing my wife tells me I should do more art. Here is the thing that I think is great about the art websites: It’s like being able to go to a gallery at one’s fingertips. Seeing new art at a gallery is an inspiring thing. Yes you see some work that one doesn’t quite “get” or like. But, it is really good when you see something you appreciate. Too, the web writer’s sites are like that for me too. I tried to explain this a year or two ago. Going to bookstores and libraries was like that for me too. Finding and reading someone “new” to you or one’s self was exciting to me as well. And you sometimes read someone that does not appeal to your own senses.  So what. It’s great being able to do that. This is the first time I’ve commented here in a while ….. well, a few days or weeks. That’s because I’ve been bogged down making a book trailer for my ebook. Yes.  I’ve been shooting clips with my smart phone and editing on quicktime player. Fascinating.
