Steve Grand is an American musician and singer-songwriter from Lemont, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. He became an overnight internet celebrity and was acclaimed by some to be the first openly gay male country musician to attract mainstream attention in the United States. The music video of his first hit "All-American Boy" went viral on YouTube in less than a week in July 2013.
Last night he and his wife Barbara were in Victoria where he gave a presentation at IMAX for the opening of Journey to The SOUTH PACIFIC. It was a pleasure to meet him after seeing so many of his films.
A great way to begin the Birthday celebration with mail art from Dale Chihuly. . . loved the envelope with stamps from US Army and Navy in 1956 and signature ink addition.
Image from our recent trip to the Chihuly Garden & Glass museum. This one has such resonance for me. One of the very first works I ever saw of Chihuly was the round orbs at the Craft Museum in NYC many years ago.
CorresponDANCE of artful exchanges ... send me your words . . reach . . . dive into your deepest desires . . send your images . . imaginations . . . simple/complex . . . wherever your artful being takes you . . now send it along and I'll exchange it with one of my own findings and perhaps a word of wisdom or two . . . .
