This will be about my views on what it takes to put a three dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. With a lot of digressing.
Don't forget to leave a comment, or a question if you have one, below the post. Thanks.

FRIENDS Oil on Linen 26 x 20" Margery Caggiano

This is my daughter Jean on the left, a fine artist in her own right, and her longtime friend Bobbie. Way back when.
I have a habit of working close to the edges, which doesn't bother me - we are all fond of our habits - but it dictates the use of a floater frame. If a frame at all.
I don't like to intrude on the painting with a copyright notice, but I'm finding out how many images are scooped out of Google's search. That's show biz


  1. You need to protect your work. Scruggs who steal for their own purposes don't deserve a spot on my bottom of my shoe. Lovely portrait. Lovely daughter! I'll bet this is magnificent in person.

  2. Thanks Sheila, I like your blog, by the way, and I like the way you paint.
    As far as copying, there's no way you can protect your work.I've been copied before, and usually know who it is. I consider anyone that copies and claims it as their own work, to be a total loser.
    Picasso said "bad artists copy, good artists steal" He should know.
