Happy Fourth of July! We had several friends coming over in the afternoon. We made dumplings and then watched the firework together.

Talking about friends, I want to talk about “Facebook” a little. I got many emails requesting to be my friends. Here I want to share a story with you.

One day, when I was traveling in New England, I was in a hotel and wanted to check my Facebook. Somehow I could not get my laptop connected to the Internet, but my IPad was able to pickup the WiFi signal (I think Apple is doing much better than PC nowadays). I knew my ID and password of my Facebook account; however, it was my first time using my IPad to login. Facebook didn’t recognize my IPad and wanted me to answer 10 security questions. The questions were quite interesting. I was giving 10 pictures that my “Facebook friends” posted on my wall: birthday parties, family reunions, and other social gatherings. I was supposed to identify who they were in those pictures with multiple choices answers. I had to get 8 correct answers to get in. Facebook assumes I should recognize who they are because they are my “friends”. Well I couldn’t do it because I accepted quite a few people as my “friends” upon their requests. They want to see my paintings, but I don’t know them in person. I failed the security test miserably. I was locked out from my Facebook account even I knew the password.

I still don’t know “Facebook” enough to use it effectively. I think my blog is best way to watch my art. So please follow my blog or sign up my mailing list. I am always your friend no matter you are in my Facebook or not.

The solitude of the work and many of your works is stunning.
Like a planet with its traveling companion and a passing comet. Very nice. John

Your work is so fabulous. I much prefer following your blog to facebook. facebook takes so much time and is so confusing. Thanks for keeping up your blog. :)

I read your FB comments with interest too. FB seems more of a quick soundbite teaser compared to a blog where one writes and talks about one's art in depth. It certainly takes more time and is perhaps for some more meaningful because of that.
