Charles Luden, Self-Examination


Photo, 1979 by Mike Greenlee


The danger of self examination is that you may find something even if you don’t know what you’re looking for.  So I decided to stop looking and just do stuff.  I’ve always been good at entertaining myself.  Each day I get up, feed the birds, then have a waffle covered with plum or blackberry jelly for breakfast.   After I clear the table I place a blank sheet of drawing paper in the center.  I stare at it for several minutes imagining a fantastic painting I would like to create.  If this goes on for 20 minutes or more, I’ll take out my notebook and write a poem about this fantastic imaginary art piece.

My friends in rural Colorado shared this on FB yesterday. They took it from their house window.

Kinda cute.

Charles Luden took these photos in Canton, SD in the 1970’s




I took this photo of my street, Avera is in the distance.


A friend recently trekked to the great north and shot this picture at Devil’s Lake.

My poet & photographer friend, and all around artist sent me these photos today he took in San Francisco in 1976 when he visiting there (he previously lived there 1971-72).

San Francisco still remains my favorite city in the United States to visit.

Photos of the week

Had so many great pictures from this past week, I had to share. I will say I have great friends who share a passion for the moment like I do.

This is a painting from the Art Collective show last night that made me laugh.


Thanks to Big ‘R’ on this photo of a Iowa sunset in a turbine field.


Shout out to ‘E’ and her mom’s Thanksgiving fruit turkey.


Haskett’s grand reopening after the Parade of Lights, the mini-roses smelled fantastic, the beer wasn’t bad either.


And finally a fantastic Thanksgiving Sunday brunch with some ‘historical’ figures and politicos.






Found on Facebook

Is this the most kickass picture you have ever seen? A FB friend in Sioux Falls took this picture the other night at their house. So beautiful and creepy at the same time. I love the tail and head design.


Where did I take this photo?

Obviously I took this at David. But in what room was I in?


The last photo I posted I took on the patio at MB Hasketts.
