Check out the House of Usher contemporary folk art site of artist / blogger Kathryn Usher, Shreveport

The freshly-painted House of Usher site got a new mud painting logo this week and features the story of a giant figure called Zelma the Red Love Draw Voo Doo Doll.

Usher has used Flickr.com carousel photo displays to add oscillancy to the site. Thus there's a continually rotating display of her portraits and art. That's one of several ideas all blogger / artists should adopt.

The logo at Usher's news blog, Red River Blog Jam, is even more moscocious. And, in her words, "Because a full-time job and one blog isn't enough," she has numerous other sites.

They're all part of what you ought to follow if you give a fig about the ideas, people and art of 'SB Land."

Aww, shucks.

"Aw, shucks," is a classic. It's what I heard Jimi Hendrix say when I saw him in a New Orleans concert during the Upper Paleolithic.
