The Gay Athlete

Pin It


I am not bent over howling at this headline. I am chuckling hard today for all the talk last night on Chelsea Lately about Jason Collins.  They were so funny. A few memorable tidbits:

(not quoted exactly...just in my own words)

"We already knew you were black but thank you very much anyway for sharing this." - Chelsea

"We don't think the world is ready yet for female athletes to come out straight" - Panelist

Good for Jason!

NEW Painting: War of 1812 and The Story of Nancy

Pin It





























SOLD original painting '3rd St. N. (The Story of Nancy)' by me, the Artist, 

This is the story of the Nancy, a schooner which sailed the Upper Great Lakes as a private cargo vessel in the fur trade. During the War of 1812, the HMS Nancy was pressed into service as a British supply ship. While in this service, the schooner was destroyed in the Nottawasaga River by American Forces.
The sunken hull of the Nancy formed an obstruction in the river and an island was established by the resultant deposition of silt and sand. The remains of the hull now rest in a museum on the island to mark the site of the Nancy's demise and to commemorate her gallant defense.

Posters Against Rape

Pin It



Christopher Scott





"Posters Against Rape" is a design/art initiative to raise awareness for this global issue. We welcome poster submissions and hope to raise funds (eventually) to support the victims and their families.

We are in the beginning stages of creating awareness through posters.

We would love to have exhibits, sell posters and publish a book. (Future plans!)

Thank you for taking part and thank you for sharing this group.

Please post your posters (a3) to this group. Invite your fellow Artists/Designers to join in.

Durga River

Pin It



A river runs through it.  My photo illustration of Durga features the waters of Huntsville, Ontario. (which sadly is flooding right now)  Durga calms me.  I carry a tiny laminated copy of her image in my pocket and another one in my handbag.  It is crumpled and creased with the word 'Fearless' written on the back.  Durga accompanies me in life.  It's part of my 'as I go' - 'on the go' meditation.  Perhaps I'm in a car or walking or painting.  I think of Durga and whisper the bliss mantra 'Om anandamayi chaitaynamayi satyamayi parame'. I might repeat it once or a few times. It depends.  I learned this chant from Kelly Cutrone via The Mother via Sri Aurobindo via India.  It means 'Oh thou full of bliss, full of consciousness, full of truth, Supreme.'  (enjoy the sound of this mantra - see the video below)

I finished a piece of art today. 'Durga River'.  It is sweet petite, small and medium sized. Unframed, framed or sent to you on canvas.  I hope you find the 'bliss' with her.  She is in my shop now.
