Mushroom Studio

this is katie bethune leaman's beautiful mushroom studio. she graciously let me do a mini-residency here at the sculpture park near St. James' cathedral. i know it's gross to show a bunch of photos of oneself but who else is gonna do it? fountainhead style. besides, this is all about the mushroom which is so special. it felt heavenly to sit inside and do some work.
all photos by: T. Marcel Bois. Thank you, Ted.
i'm very concerned about the polar bears. Sea Of Tea, for you.
working hard or hardly lurking? doodling 'babe, you've got the love/i like'. guess who.

I think that is quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen. Do you purposely wear blue? So as to channel your inner smurf?

Hi Sonja

I don't think we've ever met but we probably have mutual friends/acquaintances and likely crossed paths somewhere in Victoria and maybe Vancouver.

I was reminded of you by Robert Clifton's recent mass email (I've since instructed him on the use of Bcc rather than Cc) and thought I'd see what you've been up to.

I noticed your quote which is from one of my favorite songs, This Flight Tonight. I like the Nazareth version, however, I believe it is actually written my Joni Mitchell.
