Coolness, Joanne! Congratulations!!

I'm going to see if I can add political stuff to my sidebar on WordPress. It's a little tricky but I think I can do it. I applaud your stands on the issues, which I think are the most important ones we've ever faced.

Hey, thanks everyone!

Art blogging is a funny thing. I find it an interesting juggle to cover the exhibitions and artists whose work interests me, to focus on geometry and color, and to keep my own work visible. Now, of course, we have the campaign. With so much at stake, not taking a stand is just not an option. (I look forward to posting a pic of President Obama with one word: Victory.

. Martha, I'm glad you'll inject some op ed into your blog
. Michaela, thanks for the kind words
. Nancy, keep the links coming!
