Here is a 24 by 36 peel n stick poster from Posterjack.ca in Toronto which I stuck onto my above the sink cupboards  then sliced down the middle so that the cupboards could be opened! At around 40 dollars, this is better for me than putting in new cupboards...

here is a photo of the original painting which is still wet on January 24, 2011...Oils take a while(plus it will change colours & textures too)...It's 36 inches by 48 inches by 2-1/4 inches of oil on linen, titled "Tempesta" by me, Sari Grove...I like to keep a memento of the original, which is why I did the kitchen cupboard print, though I don't really sell prints of my works...

  Thoughts on Applications: (Not computer applications btw, applications that you have to fill out to get into something, or somewhere...)
  In grade 13, (yes, grade 13), I spent a large part of the year applying to a bunch of Ivy league universities, including a precious day of my ski vacation in Stowe Vermont...
  Long story short I compromised my graduating marks a bit by spending time on those applications...Which was stupid...
  If you are an artist, do your art...If you spend all of your time applying for things, galleries, juried shows, competitions,  grants, whatever, your art will suffer...& it's about the art, not about the application...

Update to this blog post Fri. Jan 28, 2011: Why Chuck Close is face blind...)& Oliver Sacks) & maybe me a little bit...
  Drawing faces or painting faces was taboo, um, like alot of years ago, & well, mostly, today as well, & will pretty much be taboo into the future too, if all goes according to plan, which is sort of no plan at all, which means the status quo will continue...
  What I mean is: Faces, portraits, likeness, has always been taboo...Other likeness like realistic landscapes, fruit in a bowl, nudes, your dog, are also relatively taboo, but less...
  If you come from a semi-religious background this will be ground into your personality, into your make-up, into your genes, jeans...(sorry, ignore the second jeans that's just me painting...)
  Anyways...sigh...big sigh...If your "people" were religious at all & if you became an artist then you might not be able to draw or maybe even "see" faces ...
  The "seeing" part comes as a natural block, so that you don't accidentally try to paint a face...
  It's sort of historic...It's not really a flaw or a flaw at all...
  It's like a person who cannot swear...It's funny, but not a joke...
  People who say they are face blind may just be better than the rest of us, not worse...
  Which brings me to this...
  Sometimes people with deficits, handicaps, diseases, are better than people who don't have those deficits, handicaps or diseases...
  Sometimes, not always...
  But it's worth taking a second look...
  Is the face blind guy disabled or just more religious in his ancestry than you are?

Autism, ADD, ADHD, Parkinson's disease, toenail fungus:


Dragon Fruit is high in magnesium which removes mercury from the
 gallbladder...

 A teaspoon of epsom salts in a glass of juice tastes terrible but will
 also remove mercury from the gallbladder...(epsom salts are magnesium
 sulfate)

 The reason you might be exposed to higher
 mercury levels is because you are living near to a lake...

 Mercury gathers in your gallbladder...

 It can be offset by magnesium in any format...

 Magnesium in the form of sulfate like epsom salts taken orally will
 also make you poo...You poo out the mercury...

 High mercury levels in a lake are actually caused by all the poo
 in a lake...

 The fish are suffering...

  Dear reader, though I love you, I have to keep my distance because I have to work...My work is pretty time
 consuming...You have to understand & respect that...

 Please don't answer this blog post...I am very busy right now...Sari
p.s. my comments have been edited by me, which means, not so much...

Ok, to be honest what pissed me off the most was Harvard's application because I took off an excellent ski day at Stowe Vermont to write the stupid essay part of the question & I really mined that alot because it would have been an excellent ski day instead I stayed in the lodge wrote out the stupid essay tehn ended up going to a laundromat in Stowe with a girl who loved at the Lodge because I was bored & it was too late to squeeze in a half day of skiing...Still pisses me off to this day that I missed a precious day of skiing...Honestly, if anyone else ever comes to this crossroads Fuck the essay & take the day of skiing...seriously...one of the dumbest things I have ever done was sacrifice a day of vacation for work...dumb dumb dumb...(Did go to Harvard eventually...)(ok, maybe it wasn't completely dumb...)
