Gallery Show "Housewife Art" pieces posted!


Click HERE to see all the pieces available at the "Husmorkunst" exhibition of pieces by David Troest and I at the Ram Ind Gallery in Denmark!

The opening was a huge success with a great turn out of good, art loving folks!  We had some sales and a very successful and fun raffle with the lucky winner enjoying a framed piece by David, a framed piece by me and 3 local beers from KONGEBRYG, lovingly hand decorated by David!

The Exquisite Corpse "HEAD" we did sold immediately which was super cool.


We didn't know what the assembled piece would look like until the day of the show when we brought our head halves to the gallery to stick in a frame!  We only knew where we should draw the eyes, nose, mouth and top and bottom of the head.  We were really surprised to see how it turned out!  I've been involved with other Exquisite Corpse projects you can check out here.  It's usually one person doing the head, then others doing the torso and legs.  This was the first "head only" I've done and it was great.

The exhibit is up until Feb. 26, 2014.  Enjoy!!!!

A Pet Pig!


What's it like to have a pet pig?
What do they eat?
Do they get too big?

Where do they wiz?
What about their turds?
What do you know?
What have you heard?

Can they climb up stairs?
Where do they sleep?
Will they oink and squeal if they hear something creep?

Do pet pigs bite?
Do they play with a ball?
Do you know anything about pet pigs at all?

If you have a pet pig and you name him Sammy
Will you still be able to eat the holiday hammy?

Boots Puller


I gotta pull my own feet
Across the street
They used to work fine
But I drank too much wine

When they died
I stayed inside
And drank some more booze
Until my mom sent me shoes
Which returned my desire 
To dance in the fire

So now I feel found
And I'm all around
Dragging my legs 
To the brightest light
And the loudest sound

First a head, then a city, then a tail...
