Thinking was well received.

"Thinking" was shared at the Oceanside Museum of Art "Artist Association" meeting. 


To shouts of "What is it?", I unveiled this photograph to the artists and museum representatives. It was a puzzled, but lively group, who were comforted after learning this is a "Non-objective" piece. They started having fun with it, which I had hoped would be there reaction.

Lost Arrow History
Lost Arrow, the tall spire East of "Cho-lak" (Yosemite Falls), remembers the young Ah-wah-nee-chee chief "Kos-su-kah" who fell to his death in a rockslide as he loosed the successful hunt signal arrow to his lover "Tee-Tee-nay". Her people from the tribe went searching with her up Indian Canyon, East of Lost Arrow, to help her find him. When she found his body her grief was so great she died of a broken heart. The signal arrow was never found, having been spirited away by the reunited lovers to El-o-win as a memento of their unfaltering love. And in memory of the beautiful maiden and the noble chief, the slender spire of granite, still standing there near the spot where Kos-su-kah's body was found, has ever since been known to the sons and daughters of Ah-wah-nee, as "Hum-mo", or the lost arrow.

Famous 6th St. Bridge information:
The 6th Street Viaduct is a monolithic bridge connecting cultures from early in cosmopolitan Los Angeles through last year, but it has also been a landmark for love, drama, and death in films and photographs. The bridge is dismantled now, but was passed by commuters for decades, many of whom of whom had reverent knowledge of this structure and its significance to Los Angeles history. The passing of the old bridge will soon be over. The new replacement bridge will be a pedestrian wonder. Hollywood film history for the 6th Street Bridge.
