This is my art space. I am drawn to the negative and the spaces between things both in my art and life. There is a little bit of both here.

Oscar Wilde Sculpture in Dublin
Here he is in all his glory. Oscar Wilde in Dublin's Merrion Square Park. I did take my own photo but could not find it and had to borrow one of the many from Google Images. When I was in Dublin about six years ago, our "guide" suggested that he was in his typical drunken state. When I googled "Oscar Wilde Statue, Dublin", I found some rather nasty commentary such as "The Queer with the Leer". Oh stop you asshole homophobes! Oscar was a wonderful writer regardless of his sexual preference. I loved Dorian Grey. I also love his socks1
