    I just discovered your blog and wanted to let you know how awesome I think it is. I now have a new secret ambition- to someday appear! I guess I’d better’d start hanging out at coffee shops more often.

    Your work is fantastic!

      Hi, Ellen.

      Thanks for looking.

      If you live in Austin, and go to any of the coffee houses listed in the sidebar on my homepage, you might get painted! Also, here is my Twitter username : lavannamartin. I sometimes Twitter or Facebook where I will be.

      Thank you,

      Lavanna Martin

    Extraordinary to find this – I remember you so well from the late 70s/early 80s – I love your paintings. I remember you going to Cranbrook and coming to New York one day with an English fellow-student.

    I’m a writer and travel journalist – I go to India a lot. I teach at Bath Spa University. I’ve got three sons. I’m 50 now. I remember I celebrated my 21st birthday with you.

      Hi, Joe.

      Yes, I remember you, also. I have some photos of you and Kathy when you lived in Clarkesville area of Austin, in front of the Sweet Home Baptist Church.

      I remember hanging out at your apt. On Tom Green and listening to scratch, dub, reggae, (Prince Far Eye)… I learned so much about music from practically living over there.

      Hope that you are doing well.
