We go through a fair amount with our day-to-day lives. Dealing with the ins & outs of our disease and all the little bits that come with it. Fast forward to winter when we meant to be on high alert against many other threats. I try my best to basically become a hermit or at the very least, avoiding places that are hotbeds for contamination.
Sometimes you just can’t avoid it. Slowly my body crumbled with the weight of having to deal with a cold, a chest infection and to top it off, the daily ordeals of my CD.
I’ve spent years dealing with my Crohn’s and how everything affects my body. Viruses & infections are a different ball game. For the most part, you need to just ride them out. For a lot of us, that just doesn’t cut it. I tried my best to deal with the symptoms at hand but it was no luck. I made my way into the clinic to get the evil antibiotics.
I’m healing now, a couple of days left before I’m done my round of meds.

Couple more photos from my morning walk yesterday. Not sure if I’ll be able to get out today or not due to the horrible weather we’ve been having. Hope to get back out tomorrow or Monday at the latest.
It is with great privilege that I can finally announce a ridiculous art show that I collaborated on with talented painter Bruce White called “Velvetmania.” It truly is spectacular.
Through some magical skill of persuasion that I still don’t understand, I was able to convince Bruce to create a show idea I had - to paint over 35 BLACK VELVET portraits of my favorite old school wrestlers from the 80’s and 90’s, and now the world can see them all in person. Working with Bruce to carefully choose the subjects may have been one of the most exciting experiences I’ve yet to achieve artistically. Imagine my expression when I got to ask him, “Can you Google Giant Gonzalez?” It opens THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, at G1988 (West), from 7-10 PM, and the artist will be in attendance. Each piece is more stunning than the next, capturing the era and personality of each larger than life wrestler perfectly. You won’t know whether to laugh or compare it to the Mona Lisa. From the world renown to the obscure, Bruce & I made sure to depict every legend of the squared circle.
I would love to see you this Friday night at 7308 Melrose Ave in Los Angeles, as even after 10 years of owning a gallery, this may just be the show most connected to my terrible mind - and all produced by the genius Bruce White, widely regarded as the world’s premiere black velvet painter.
I plan to get out & work on my street photography over the next few months. Going to challenge myself & start asking random strangers to take street portraits. A growth experience since I’m terribly shy.
