Mike's Looseleaf Paper Art

Back in the late summer of 1980, I first started becoming a serious artist, painting, Heaven forbid, watercolors on looseleaf paper in Arleta, California, which is part of L. A., in the San Fernando Valley. I found the medium to be supremely liberating and even after trying out standard "arteest" watercolor paper, I prefer looseleaf paper for many reasons. I might also add that art on looseleaf paper has graced the walls of MOMA in NYC. It sucks that I have to defend my art, but such is life in 2003. (Gee, now it is 2013!) If I was the son of some Hollywood movie star, things might be different for me. Oh well. I am inspired when I paint.

If inspired work is passe' to you, it's your problem, not mine. I lived in L. A. for ten months, by the way, taking a year off after my freshman year at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
