~ The heat is on!

Playing with fire is bad for those who burn themselves. For the rest of us, it is a very great pleasure.

Man is the only creature that dares to light a fire and live with it. The reason? He alone has learned to put it out.
~ Henry Jackson Vandyke, Jr.

If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid seeing yourself in the mirror, because I bet that's what really throws you into a panic.

Every day this week, I've toyed with the idea of taking an afternoon nap. I'm thinking today may just be the day. I've been awake since 3:30 a.m., after getting about two hours of sleep.

Thank you, kindly, for all the nice comments (and sales!) on last week's crop of ACEOs. They're fun to make -- seeing my work in this mini-size is a kick and a half!

* * * *

Winter's Over! ~ sigh ~

I had to turn the air conditioner back on a couple of days ago. Mid-70's today and for the next five or six days, at least-- warm enough for bare feet.

I am not amused!

Did anyone catch Tony Bennett's duet with Michael Buble on yesterday's "Oprah"? Two of my very favorite men -- one, w-a-y too old for me, and the other, w-a-y too young.

ACEO -- What's it all about?

Good morning, class! Today, we're going to learn about ACEOs.


I knew you would be!

* * *

Pop Quiz! (relax, it's all multiple choice)

1. ACEO stands for:
a. Allergic Cats Eat Oranges;
b. Albanian Cars Emit Oxidants; or,
c. Art Cards, Editions and Originals

2. There is only one "rule" for creating an ACEO. This rule is:
a. An ACEO must be bigger than a breadbox;
b. An ACEO must smell like a field of freshly mown hay; or
c. An ACEO must measure 2.5"x3.5"

3. ACEOs are considered to be:
a. Just one more burden on an overtaxed society;
b. All fun and games, until someone loses an eye; or
c. Highly collectible, miniature works of art

4. If you see an ACEO created by W. J. St. Christopher, you should immediately:

a. Contact Homeland Security to report
dangerous use of color and form;
b. Call your psychiatrist -- you're obviously hallucinating; or
c. Buy the ACEO, immediately, before someone else grabs it!

~ Quiz answer key ~

1. Correct answer is c. Who really cares if cats are eating oranges, anyway?

2. Correct answer is c. Freshly mown hay? Hear me wheeze.

3. Correct answer is c. Starving artists are a burden on an overtaxed society. I'm offering you an opportunity to alleviate that burden.

4. Correct answer is c. This has the potential of being a two-fold success story: you own a fabulous, tiny work of art (or two, or three), and I (honestly) earn some fabulous, tiny money! (Refer to answer #3, above.)

* * *

If you answered all four questions correctly, you're a winner!

If you chose any incorrect answers . . . for pete's sake -- refer to question 4b, above.

Hope you're a little warmer today, Dr. John, in spite of my continued creative hustle!

~ Arts & Crafts Fair
San Antonio College Campus

* * *

What the heck have I been doing?

Well, I haven't been away on a dream vacation, playfully swimming with dolphins and blissfully singing with whales.

I haven't won the lottery and been closeted for days with my savvy financial advisor/renowned architect/dream man, stuffing my face with Godiva chocolates and swigging Bollinger's Special Brut.

I haven't won a prestigious, if unexpected, award for my cutting edge, hi-tech digital art, resulting in my art selling like hotcakes, and me being interviewed (as the new "it" girl . . . um, woman) by Oprah and/or Barbara Walters.

What I have been doing, is working my tired fingers to the bone creating towering stacks of unique, new inventory (of the Art and the Craft varieties)! Hauling out this amazing glut of new and exciting inventory, I set up shop at one of the Art Fairs I'd registered for (I was shooting for three within a period of about three weeks) where I was pleasantly surprised with bearable weather, friendly, interested crowds, and, best of all, moderate to brisk sales throughout the day.

From the photos, above, you can see that I took along a few large-format, framed and matted pieces (yep, that's my handy 7-foot stepladder they're being displayed on, and yep, I spent a lot of my day trying to keep these pieces hanging at some semblance of level. That was, indeed, an exercise in futility, but it made a nice display all the same! I also added a few smaller, square, matted and framed pieces to that display.

On the table, I offered a box of 8"x10"s, individually sealed in nice, archival, clear bags with rigid mat backing. This was great for drawing shoppers in to chat and flip through the stack of cows, fractals, hearts, robots, and many other images -- some of which you've seen posted here!

I was really excited to offer, for the first time anywhere, two new products: Suncatchers -- fancifully shaped, heavy-gauge gold or silver-colored wire studded with brilliant pieces of clear and colored glass; and my new Glass Magnets! Not just any magnets, but big (up to 2" (5cmx5cm) chunks of sparkling, clear glass backed with original art by -- me!

Today, I'm rushing to get these items, plus ACEOs and more, photographed and posted for sale in my Etsy shop. I'll be back tomorrow with some close-up photos of a few of these pieces and to tell you a little more about them.

It's all very exciting! I'm on some kind of freakish, creative roll -- gotta go with it!

* * * *

Wacky Weather!

When I woke up this morning, at 5:15 a.m., the temperature was a warm and very humid 72 degrees (F). By 7:00 a.m., it had dropped to 36 degrees. Right now, it's down to 34 degrees.

I believe my unrestrained creative outpouring has somehow caused hell to actually freeze over!

* * * *

Special Shout-outs!

Thanks to Judy, Reynaldo, Kayla, Pam, and all the other great folks I met at San Antonio College who so generously and pleasantly gifted me with their time, attention, and unexpected help and fun. You guys contributed so much to my great day on the SAC campus!

Thanks, also, to my pals Nancy and Keith, without whom I would never even have heard about this opportunity. You prettied up my table and offered your support in every way. Feel free to pitch your tent across from mine, anytime!

As always, a special thanks to Neesie, my friend and sister, who is up for (most!) any challenge; who doesn't think twice about making sure I have what I need to survive day-to-day, and to further my career; and, who didn't blink at the thought of picking me and my ton of inventory (yes, even the ladder!) up at oh-dark-thirty a.m., bringing along my favorite breakfast (Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry Vanilla and Twizzlers), then spending her entire day sitting with me and chatting up customers.

Thanks, Neesie!

I really enjoyed all the comments on my lasts posts -- gotta love that Dr. John marathon traffic! High 5 to Cindra, who wanted to eat the first image. Love that!

Thanks, guys, for all the very creative comments!

* * * *

Entirely too much voting this week. The U. S. Government! Dancing With the Stars! Whew -- I'm exhausted!

* * *

Congrats to my pal, Lynette Clay who has recently started selling her gorgeous art on eBay. Good luck, Lynette!

* * *

While I should have been sleeping last night, I was awake and watching "Shall We Dance". This sweet, fun, and inspiring movie stars Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, and Susan Sarandon (plus a handful of other really likeable characters). What a pleasant way to invest a couple of my "insomnia" hours.

Now, I'm craving a good Waltz (or a hot Tango)!

* * *

Break's over -- it's back to work for me. Today, I'm working on wire and iridescent glass suncatchers/ornaments. Sometimes, I'm too inspired for my own good!

Has anyone seen my round nose pliers? If you've guessed that I'm sitting here twisting rebar tie wire by hand, you're right! Sometimes, I'm too disorganized for my own good!

Thursday? Already?

I had such high hopes for this week's adventures in blogging. That is, until I realized that in two days I'm swapping out a dozen pieces in my local "real world" exhibit. Also, I've signed up for two Arts & Craft fairs within the next 30 days. I can't help myself!

So, instead of blogging, surfing, and indulging in my other low-stress Internet activities, I'm printing, cutting, matting, framing, designing and assembling my heart out!

The good news? (There always has to be good news --) The last time I was in such a creative frenzy, back in early September, the temperature in my studio/kitchen hovered at 100 degrees F and higher. Today, that room will measure a moderate 76-82 degrees. That's far from my preferred 65-70 degree comfort zone, but a world away from the sweltering, endless misery of the last six months. Whew!

I'll pop in here as time permits (I can only stay away so long), and should be on a more regular posting schedule by the end of November. I'm working on some great, unusual (of course!) pieces for the upcoming fairs. I'll show some of them off as they're completed.

* * * *

I'm offering 8"x10", 5"x7", 2.5" x 3.5" (ACEOs) and smaller, art prints for sale at the fairs (one of which will be held on a college campus). I'm open to suggestions as to which of my pieces ( you think would be most appealing in these small sizes.

The dates for these fairs are November 10th & 20th and I'm hoping for nice, cool weather. We certainly don't have to worry about unexpected snowfall, but that would be so amazing!

* * * *

Thanks, as always, for your great comments on my last couple of posts. "Beyond" is particularly unusual, and it was great to see it so appreciated. I'm exhibiting it in Timo's Coffeehouse as of Saturday morning!

Now, I'm going back to work before I get too comfy on this couch. Later, guys!

The Backstory -

I dreamed I was staring, through a chain-link fence, at a vast expanse of vividly blue water and sky.

"Beyond" is what came of that dream.

Friday's Drive-by Post

Today, already, I've had a gi-normous asthma attack, dropped my telephone into a bucket of dirty water, and made a critical math error while constructing a shipping carton for this piece, which was supposed to go out in this morning's mail.

All this on about 3 hours' sleep.

Woe is me.

In better news, a local Good Samaritan (one Mr. Tony Mack) was in a grocery store parking lot when he spotted a man on a bicycle attempting to carjack a frightened looking woman.

When the bicycling bad-boy attempted to escape, Mr Mack pursued him, knocked him right off his getaway two-wheeler, tied the perp up with a shoelace, and brought him back to the scene of the crime, restraining him until the arrival of San Antonio's Finest.

The victim identified the suspect (who won't be winning the Tour de France anytime soon), and the hapless suspect has already confessed.

Kudos, Mr. Tony Mack! The human race needs more, just like you!

Oh, today's image? After my less-than-stellar morning, I needed a quiet place.

~ Past Pieces
Coming soon to!

* * *

"Past Pieces" reminds me of the countless hours I spent sitting on the hardwood floor of my grandmother's bedroom, making like Indiana Jones with her quilting "scrap bag".

The colors! The textures! The stories!

Did any 5-year-old ever have more fun?

P.S. This actual piece is designed to be printed BIG, but I think you can get some sense of it here. Don't forget to click for a larger view.

I'm working on a special post for Monday's blog. It's one of those "how I spent my day" posts that has gotten completely out of control. In the meantime, I'll do a "fly by" post, everyday, for the next few days.

Enjoy the pics!

* * *

Here are words I doubted I'd every speak again:

"Today, there's a chill in the air."

Really, there is! And, there are actual clouds accompanied by a refreshing breeze!

Yesterday, we hit our usual 90+ degree (F) temp. Today's high is predicted to be a breezy, wonderful, 68 degrees -- Christmas in October!

Snoo, welcome back!!

I very much enjoyed all the great conversation generated by my last post. I'm honored that so many of you are willing to join me on my many flights of fancy.

Thanks, guys!

* * * *

I can't wait for tonight's premiere of "Friday Night Lights" on NBC. Not being a great fan of football, I wasn't originally very interested in this show. However, the gorgeous previews and great reviews I've read have completely won me over.

Monday night's "Heroes" has zoomed right to the top of my "must see" list, and I could use a great Tuesday night follow-up. "Friday Night Lights" could be the one!

I LOVE television! A great technological wasteland?

I think not!

~ Starry Waltz
~ Dancing in Space

Available now at!

* * *

Ah, the International Space Station --

. . . another of my dream destinations! One of the big projects for the recent Atlantis shuttle mission was to install some gi-normous solar panels on the International Space Station (ISS). They'll eventually be used for power (additional panels will be added by another shuttle crew).

The side effect of these panels is that the ISS is significantly brighter and more easily visible in the night sky. Last Thursday evening, our local meteorologists made a pretty big deal of letting us know the ISS was headed our way, and gave a 15-minute window of time when we could clearly see it crossing our skies on Friday morning. (As long as heavy cloud cover or rain didn't move in, and really, what were the odds of that?)

So, there I was, in the too-warm, yuck-clammy dark of 6:30 a.m., saying a hushed, but friendly, "Good morning!" to several of my early-to-work (or late-to-home) neighbors, pacing and staring into a brilliant, starry sky. Not one of my neighbors bothered to ask why I was out in the dark, or what I was looking for. (Hm, it's possible they know me better than I thought they did. Have I already become the "strange lady in the house down the block"? I like it!)

Anyway, at about 6:39 a.m., Eureka!, I spotted what looked like a very bright star coming my way (well, if stars were in the habit of smoothly sailing right past Orion's Belt)! It was approaching at a steady pace, from the southwest corner of the city, headed diagonally to the northeast. No telescope or binocs necessary -- my less-than-perfect vision was all it took for me to be part of this very exciting 4 or 5 minutes. As I watched the space station soaring almost directly overhead, I tried to create a telepathic link to the crew, just so they'd know I was thrilled to spend a few minutes of my day with them.

Okay, the telepathy thing didn't actually work, but it's the thought that counts . . .

You'll probably get a chance to see it, too. Click here to read a great article about the new solar panels and for more info about when and where you might see the ISS

Today's images are posted purely because I'm in a celestial state of mind. You can purchase them at or read more about them, here.

* * *

In other news, I've somehow managed to lose, throw away, give away, hide, or otherwise misplace the power cord that goes to my trusty, if old, Fujitsu Tablet PC. How is it possible to misplace something that only serves one function, and, for 5 years, has ALWAYS been stored in the same place???

Which reminds me of the time I dreamed about putting my TV remote in a safe place and, a week later, found it in the freezer! But, that's a sleepwalker's story for another day!

The backstory -

My friend Lynette Clay, Artiste Extraordinaire, has tagged me to reveal eight facts about myself. Since I do business here, I decided long ago not to join in all the reindeer games floating about. There's always the possibility that if people know how peculiar I am, they'll choose to do business elsewhere!

On the other hand, isn't it supposed to be "cool" for artists to be a little . . . eccentric? In which case, I should be raking in the big bucks!

But, I digress . . .

I decided to respond to Lynette's challenge by revealing two things about myself, which are a direct tie-in to today's posted image:

1. I, absolutely, believe in extra-terrestrial life; (E. T. phone home.)

2. I love robots! (Danger, Will Robinson!)

Which leads me to wonder, if an extra-terrestrial and a robot had a baby . . .


There's a series of a dozen or so of these square, 8"x8", hi-tech personalities currently in production. They'll be available as Open Edition printings at a cost of $17US + shipping. If you can't wait, and need to own this one now, feel free to email me at:

(click on image for larger view)

Three variations on a theme.


The backstory -

The great joy of working in a purely digital medium is that once you've created a good source file, it can be manipulated, at will, into countless new and exciting images.

Every element is changeable: image size, colors, textures, shapes, etc. The original source file for the three images, above, is a simple, square, 3-color (blue, grey and black) .GIF image. I've created dozens of manips from that file -- none of them being simple and only some of them being square.

Ah, the creative thrill of having my fingers on all the digital buttons! I sometimes feel like Dr. Frankenstein on a good day in the lab:

"It's alive!"

Now, if only Igor were here to make my breakfast . . .

~ Paradise, Found
(click on image for larger view)

This island dream is available at
"Small Works" art shop.


The backstory -

A year or so ago, I found myself impatiently standing in line behind a woman wearing a striped sweater. As usual, expecting the unexpected, I had my camera in hand and was fiddling with it to pass the time. Later that night, while uploading the day's photos, I saw that I'd accidentally snapped a pic of the back of that striped sweater. I thought about deleting it, but saved it to my "Iffy Stuff" folder, instead.

Look closely at the island 'trees' and 'land' in "Paradise, Found", above, and you'll see the striped pattern of the sweater.

Since then, I've done a couple of other pieces from that same "accidental" photo. If I can find a copy of the original shot (which seems to only exist on a CD my computer refuses to read -- AARRGH!!!) I'll post them for you to see.

These days, I never toss out a crappy photo. They're handy for all sorts of things!

* * * *

Thanks for all the great comments on my last post, and special thanks to Dr. John, as usual, for sending his "Marathoners" my way!

Speaking of Dr. John, his blog post is so hysterically funny today -- I laughed until I wheezed! Whew! Now, I need a breathing treatment!

* * * *

It's cloudy, damp, and cool in San Antonio this fine Saturday morning. This is my favorite type of weather, and I'm crossing my fingers in hope of it sticking around a few days.

Have an amazing weekend!

Please stand by . . .

Speaking of drowning, it's been raining in San Antonio today, and is about 30 degrees cooler than a few days ago.

Yep, I said raining -- well, not hard rain, but wet!

Whether or not this indicates Hell has frozen over is anyone's guess.

"The BIG PROJECT" - Revealed!

Today's Guest Blogger is Neesie, W. J.'s sister and best friend

It was a sultry Thursday afternoon. W. J. had been readying a piece of art for donation to the San Antonio Advertising Federation's art auction. We had some time before the event so decided to stop at Timo's Coffeehouse. Timo's serves coffees, teas, a variety of delicious sandwiches, soups, salads and light lunches and dinners, and some of the yummiest desserts (all home-made) you'll ever eat! It's a favorite spot for business people, college students and professors and neighborhood regulars, and is getting busier all the time with positive write-ups in Texas Monthly and local papers. And Tim Guillen ("Timo"), the proprietor, is one of the hardest working people I've ever seen. He, and his partner, Peter Calpagno
are consummate professionals at customer service, and are super-nice! (We didn't know any of this at the time, but boy, do we know it now!)

W. J. said hi to Tim and found that he was, indeed, interested in displaying art. She asked him if he'd like to see her work, he said yes, and she, magically, produced two small portfolios (which just happened to be in her bag!)

The rest, as they say, is history! W. J. directed him to her website,, he selected some favorite pieces (liked them ALL), and the more they talked, the bigger the exhibit got! Plans are for W. J. to be the "artist in residence" at Timo's and have rotating exhibits. How cool is that!?

ANYWAY - W. J. got busy. Very busy. I'll skip the details of all that, but you can imagine what it took to single-handedly put an exhibit together -- choosing and ordering the prints, cutting mats, framing, hanging, printing flyers, sending invitations, etc.

In Timo's main dining room there are two slat walls, one of which now holds five "Abstraction" pieces. On the other wall hangs a selection of seven "Yesterday's Trees" -- all 16"x20". At the cash register area is a group of four "You are Here" road shots (Timo's "travel wall"), and in the bar area are four more 16"x20" abstract pieces and seven pieces from W. J.'s "Small Works" Etsy Shop. Whew!

All leading up to "An Evening of Digital Dreams" which we celebrated with a reception on the evening of Saturday, August 19th. What an evening it was! Guests included local business people, university professors, other artists (including our Etsy-pal, Nancy), some of Timo's regulars, inspirational author Ralph Ransom, and family and friends. Believe me, it was SPECTACULAR. The "Wow" factor was high and the buzz is starting!

Our evening's photographer ran into some technical difficulties, but W. J. and I stopped by Timo's a few days ago (during the lunch rush!) to grab a few photos. See more of "The BIG PROJECT" at W. J.'s Flickr site, here.

I've got to run. This guest blogging was a blast! Now, I'm turning it back to W. J. to post in the blog.

~ ~ ~ ~

W. J. says:

Hi, guys! I'm ba-ackkkk!

Let's hear a round of applause for Neesie, today's "Guest Blogger!"

*W. J. pauses, waiting patiently for clapping and cheering to wane . . .*

I'd like to, very publicly, thank Neesie for her unflagging support throughout this entire process. Without her generous financial and emotional backup, this "Big Project" would still be 'just another good idea'.

Thank you, Neesie. I couldn't have done it without you.

Big thanks, also, to my sister, Sharon, for unexpectedly showing up at my house with an armload of frames (and my favorite Red Twizzlers) -- just when I needed them!

To our very own blog-pal, Lynette Clay -- you were with me on this from start to finish. Thanks for your friendship and encouragement!

Last, but certainly not least, many thanks to Tim Guillen ("Timo") for graciously trusting a virtual stranger with your time, space, and clientele. I'll try never to give you reason to look up at your walls and say, "Oh, no! What was I thinking?!?!"

That's it for today, guys! I'll be back Thursday with a "regular" post. You were all part of this "Big Project" in some way, and I appreciate, very much, having my "Peeps" along for the ride.

Have an amazing day!

~ Differing Views
Both, coming soon to

Here are two very different views of San Antonio's Municipal Auditorium.

Hi, guys! I just want to thank you all for hanging in here with me, even though I've been conspicuously absent. I haven't had time for my usual blog surfing, but I still love to hear from you guys! Soon, I'll be back to a more 'regular' blogging schedule.

My 'Big Project' has been pushed back a week, which is GREAT, as I really needed the extra time. As soon as 'Phase I' is complete, I'll post some photos so you can see what I'm up to. It's all good!

Today, we're expecting a heat index reading of 108 degrees F. A big heat wave is expected over the next seven days. Wouldn't that be a "bigger" heat wave?

In other news: Yesterday, I made the first sale from my "Small Works" shop, here. Once the "Big Project" is under control, I intend to add some exciting new things to the shop. I'll keep you posted!

Please welcome my cyber-pal, Brian, to our extended family of links. Expect keen observations and a wicked sense of humor!

Stay safe!
