then when now pow

the remains of Bitches Brew – art by Smith, foto by Stone Ranger

My longest friendship is with Stone Ranger whom I met at Loyola College in Baltimore in 1972. He has some of my oldest art pieces in his collection.

Recently he was away from his home for three months and when he returned he found moisture and black mold had attacked his back doorway and one of my assemblages. The moisture got beneath my glue and most of the assemblage came loose and fell to the floor.

Even nature’s becoming an art critic.

    I suppose nothing lasts forever but an opportunity to make something new out of something old.

    That seems to be natures way as well.
