Body Language

The human brain weighs an average of 3 pounds in a man and 2 pounds 12 ounces in a woman. The capacity of the brain has been expressed as the # 1 followed by 6.5 million zeros. It is the size of 2 clenched fists held tightly together.

The human heart weighs between 9 – 11 ounces. It was thought long ago to be where human emotion came from. It is the size of 1 clenched fist. What is the capacity of the heart?

Why do they compare the brain and heart to a fist? Are we angry minded and mean hearted?

Humans are the only animals that cry and we are the only ones that kill our own species.

These are some of the things that piqued my curiosity years ago and prompted one of my art statements. I thought I would share this with everyone (You can read the art statement on my very first posting).

I have been busy getting ready for: Holiday Art Mart (11/28 thru 12/25) at Ukazoo Books in Towson and getting artwork for the Robert Andreasian Gallery in the Arts District, downtown. Plus the other shows coming in December and January. My writing and artwork will also be in the online publication Traipsing Turtle. Well I hope everyone has a wonderful and FILLING turkey day.

Exhibits for December and January 2008

I will be a part of a group show at the Irvine Nature Center in Owings Mills, Maryland in December. The piece in the show is Autumn Moon ( the header image on this blog). I am looking forward to this exhibit. The show is titled "One Good Turn: Fall Foliage". I am working on a print in whites/off whites for the January group show. I will be having a solo exhibit there in June and July ( lots of prints to get done). I am enjoying the Mourning Moon and have a pretty busy schedule this weekend. I will be attending two art receptions as well as going to the American Visionary Art Museum. Have a great week end!!!!

I am back on the EAST coast and wow! even though I have been gone 11 months ( almost to the day). I am dealing with culture re-adjustment. The air is more clogged with fumes, some of the people here have a different attitude than what I'm used to. I will be OK. I have applied at several arts organizations and have belief that there will be a very positive outcome in the employment area of my life. I am 1/2 way unpacked, TSA ransacked both pieces of my luggage!!!! MONSTERS they are!!! I will be painting and busy doing some art this week. I want to thank everyone who sent messages to me wondering why I had not posted. Transistions are NEVER easy. I will be posting on a regular basis again and thanks for your concern, till next time...........PEACE
