Santa Cruz, CA

It sounds like a great trip but it was to see an ill uncle who passed just 15 hours later. Now back in LA, there isn't anything we can do, and you just have to keep on going.

In Flux - Proud of the Kids who Make Art

That's Cassia Lupo and Yusei Abe who are the artists in attendance for In Flux. It was their opening and and I have to thank them for working hard to create work for everyone to enjoy, judge, and ponder. I love seeing new faces who have come to support their friends.

Stephane Gauger director of The Owl and The Sparrow passed away. He'll be missed. I voted for the film to be Best Picture at the SF Int'l Asian American Film Festival years back.  I painted over the little details by Katsuya Terada. In a way, sad to see them go, but so much more lies underneath these, so it's all ok.
