Glenn Miller is a dear friend of mine who I met at the JazzFest in New Orleans 17 years ago. He is, among other things, a sketch artist and he approached my sister and I asking to borrow a pen. We had one and he right away did a sketch of us:
We wrote our address on the sketch and he promised to send us a copy, which he did and he and I became Penpals. Since we didn't know each other at all, it was easy to make up different personas for ourselves and soon, Rose Petal and Muffin Man (with the blueberry eyes, now known as g.muff) were born. Muffin would beg Rose Petal to come live with him on his alligator farm and eventually, she did...in the letters. Since then, there have been many adventuresome REAL visits now between Glenn and I can truthfully say that we are family. Here's one of his etchings called Jazz Funeral:
Here's one of Glenn's newer styles which he calls Indian Space Painting:
Glenn survived Hurricane Katrina and I made him this website to help raise funds for him. To read more of his amazing story and see more of his artwork go here.
