This is Ed. He is the kind of friend we all hope to find and keep in our lives. I met him in the 7th grade in Houston, Texas. We performed "My Love is Alive" by Gary Wright in our school's annual talent show. He sang lead and played bass. I sang harmony and played guitar. We didn't win but we set the stage for a friendship that will last a lifetime.

Thanks Wildside. Writing is harder than drawing for me. And with Ed, there are so many stories there its hard to choose one! Thanks for keeping me company here...

I hope you don't mind, but I think I'm going to have to create a link to find you more easily instead of paging thru blogger's shared interests! (as I don't do facebook -- as yet)

I mean it. I loved this story. You probably hear this a lot: You've got talent. But I'm curious. Are you an architech?

(Can't seems to spell today, sorry if that's wrong, but I think you'll understand what I'm trying to ask...)

WILDSIDE said...

Sorry, being a bit blogger chatty of late -- up to no good. LOL

I think yes, you must be an architect -- first because of the style of your artwork, but then looking again at your profile I see architecture as one of your interests -- so guessing I'm correct!

You don't need to answer. But I do like your art.

Thanks Wildside. Yes, you are right - I studied architecture and have a small practice in Camden, Maine. Just curious - what do you see in my art that gives it away? Do you see it in the portraits or just the Urban sketches?
