Portland Autumn and a Rainy Halloween


In North Carolina, a relative told me she thought my jack o lanterns were evil and a young 8th grade teacher told me that he did not care for my jack o lanterns as he walked into my gallery .  What I witnessed and experienced in North Carolina is cause for alarm. The Southern Baptist Control every Institution, Public School, Fire and Police, City and State Government. I have never experienced such patronizing and manipulation.  The southeast just voted in a petty and inexperienced human being and his thugs on a very ugly and mean Campaign. There are people there who don't believe we have been to the moon.  Those people voted.  I think my jack o lanterns are cool and beautiful.  No evil here.  And my witch plates are awesome.  Boo!


Here is something to ponder in our last election.  Political Warfare and Pychological Operations: Rethinking The US Approach. http://www.iwar.org.uk/psyops/resources/ndu/pwpor.pdf:
"

THE POTENTIAL DESTRUCTIVENESS of open warfare between the superpowers has tended to shift East-West competition to the lower end of the "spectrum of conflict," toward political and psychological warfare. While the Soviets have actively waged political war against the West,
the United States has, to a large extent, shied away. The negative connotations in the West of the word propaganda suggest we have treated political war as incompatible with democratic values and traditions."

I feel so uncomfortable right now. Do you think it might be War? Or was this based on a bet? I do know that those Evangelical's found their man. Now I know how Trump campaigned, through the pulpits.

I love this owl and the colors and shapes that surround him. I was going to put a moon in the sky but decided that I have been putting lots of moons in my pieces so, I refrained and went for a more lighted star. This piece will make any room or hall filled with character.  This one is fun to watch the changing of light from dawn to morning sun. Rich and bold.

Thank you David and Jennifer.  Oregon is beautiful. I look forward to a new life here and seeing what I develop as an Artist. I cant wait to explore more of the state and Northwest.   I hope this interpretation of Mount Hood pleases for years to come.  A neat piece to watch the changing of light.

Trunk Bay, St John USVI 
That was quite an unusual Artist adventure without any art being produced.  It was great seeing so many people from the past.  Not sure what to think about the whole experience.  It was quite painful to see my old stomping ground, Maho Bay Camps torn down and seeing so many concrete monstrosities constructed aroundthe island.  Thank you Dana for the airline miles and thank you Maggie for the house sitting gig. Thank you Mike and Ben for hiring me aboard Viva La Revolution...man, those were some hot nights.  I hope you all have a great season!!!

Phoenix Rising


28 x28 stained glass mosaic "Phoenix Rising" by Victor Nunnally-sold
January 9 ,1918– U.S troops engage Yaqui Indian warriors in the Battle of Bear Valley in Arizona, a minor skirmish and one of the last battles of the American Indian Wars between the United States and American Indians.

"Spanish 'flu" becomes pandemic. Over 30 million people die in the following 6 months.

The Native American Church is formally founded in Oklahoma.

Want to do something fascinating?  Go to Wikipedia and type in any year, past, present, or future.  B.C. or A.D.  I just checked out 1918


  Go to 1561 and  check out April 14th...what do you think about that one?

Check out 2030 or other future years...fascinating!

The Philosopher’s Stone, I always saw it as metaphorical, like David slewing Goliath with the philosopher stone. Such as one individual that takes down an army of 2 billion with an undeniable answer.

Koi and The Cherry Tree

28" Stained Glass Mosaic Window by Victor Nunnally 2015
Thank you Karen, it fits perfect there and the light is just right.  I bet it radiates in the morning sun.  Perfect timing with the cherry blossoms in DC.  
If you get a chance click on "A Fun Slide Show"at the top of the right column.  I made that years ago and came across it while looking at my blog's archives.  I need to make another updated one.  But this one is special and sad at the same time for me.

Lionheart,The Spider, and The Funky Chicken by Victor Nunnally

 I was asked to produce a Lions Face Mosaic.  Lions involve a lot of cutting and patience as I do it freehand.    If you look close behind the left eye you will see The Lion Of Syria.

"She wasn't supposed to open it til May but she couldn't wait so I think she waited 1/2 a day.  She flipped out!  She described it as her life in glass and light.  Her friends asked about you, she found her way to your website and is so proud that her lantern is featured.  So she could not be happier.  "

Thank you Molly...I am very happy that she loves it.


I did something in google search today and the results were fascinating:
I typed the word "Beautiful" in Google Images and looked at all the results that came up.
I then typed the word "Ugly" in Google Images and looked at all the results...
Try it and see if you notice anything.

A Lantern Of Natural Wonders

This is a commission lantern for a loyal customer in California.  When I was asked to create a wolf face and an eagle in flight on a lantern I have to confess, I did some head scratching but after the completion I have to say, I am very happy.  One of a kind.
