My postcard entry to "A Book About Death (ABAD)". My wife, Patricia has been organizing this year's show (May 3-8, 2011) which will be held at Willo North Gallery, Phoenix. This painting, which I turned into a postcard is based on a photograph Patricia did of me a few years back. A lot of entries have been coming in, and I'm looking forward to seeing them all together. There's still time to enter: the deadline for postcard and memento is April 25, 2011.

There's a certain sympathy seeing a hurt monster. I'm not sure why I'm drawn to the loss of a hand or in this case a paw. I think it goes back to when I was working at the bindery of a publishing place years ago with an old cutter. There were many people that freelanced there that's lost a thumb or some other part of the hand due to accidents from these old large machines. Thinking back, I remember putting my hands under the cutter many times, in order to prepare the stack of paper for cutting and thought nothing of it.
