Paulette Nichols Artist Grants

Here is a photo of Paulette.

On the way home from the super-dupermarket, Paulette got the idea to make grants available to artists who make any type of art.

She has 3 grants of $1.00 each, totaling $3.00 in grant monies available to artists.

"I've been really lucky in my art career, and I wanted to give something back to my species," said Paulette.

Send applications to paulette at pauletteinternational dot c o m.

In the application, you must describe your biggest failure in life and what you learned from it.  You must also describe how you plan to use the money.  And you must send only one photo of your art.

Thank you for participating.

Paulette Writes About Her POTSU Art

Symbols at work.

Paulette made paintings that are of the current president of the United States of Amerigo Vespucci.  They are unflattering and biting and punchy and seek to tell some kind of truth even if they exaggerate and possibly fail. 

The top one of the orange hood with flyaway hair is an important work of art because it is so clear, it tells it like it is.  It doesn't mince words and it's really poetic, metaphorical and similitudinous and vacuous and incisive and links the potsu with hate groups who are afraid of people who are different from themselves.  A term being bandied about is ethnic nationalists, and this ethnic nationalism don't sit quite right with Paulette who says, "Them ethnic nationalists live in places where they don't see so many nationalities, or at least why don't they know that there's lots of good people from all over, and some people ain't so good, but Euros don't got no monopoly on the gooduns, so why you want to say they do.  Callin the kettle black, it looks like that's what's happnin.  Y'all need to get outta your bubble too.  Mebbe we get a travel day so's we can see how others live in the other places we don't live in.


Look at the lovely power couple.
The potsu and his wife smile for the camera.  She was a professional model, so she knows all about cameras and looks and appearances.  He's no stranger to the camera either, posing and acting on his tv show about firin' people before he got into his potsu role.  Such a brand making man.  Image is everything, or is it?  Don't look past the surface.  Don't ask too many questions about what's really happening or you may get past the veneer, the façade.  Again, the painting asks the question, who are these people?

Strop Conspicuously Not Invited to HSB 2016

The Band Strop Oakland.

Oakland's favorite band, Strop, did not receive an invitation to play at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2016, and they are deeply hurt and feeling unloved by the event organizers.  Says Paulette, one of Strop's members, "Neither Mark nor Mark nor I received any invitation to play at the festival this year.  They pretend like we don't exist, and we work so hard and sacrifice so much and are so well loved by Americana and Roots Music lovers that it's obvious that festival organizers are going out of their ways to not invite us."

The closing night will feature an artist's talk and musical performance by Paulette and the Band she's in, Strop, which is currently boycotting the city of Oakland until they are granted the key to the city by the mayor, Libby Schaaf.

The location of the event is Hayes Valley Art Works, 456 Laguna St. in San Francisco from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, September 24th.

Bring your best questions for Paulette to answer during her artist's talk.

Paulette's San Francisco Art Show Opening Aug 26, 5-7 p.m.

This is a picture of Paulette wearing sunglasses.

Paulette has been doing a residency, residing, making art at Hayes Valley Art Works in San Francisco since May of 2016.  She has new paintings that she will show at 456 Laguna St in San Francisco starting August 26, 2016.  The opening is from 5 to 7 p.m.

Our sources obtained the following promotional words about the show.

Paulette will be showing paintings of dogs, the Hayes Valley Artworks lot, and two presidents.  Also shown will be production art from the Jeffrey Vallance Interview Film, a painting of the Los Angeles skyline, a painting of a liquor store in Oakland, a painting of 22nd street in San Francisco, and her painting of a Thomas Kinkaide painting.  The paintings are a mixture of studio work and plein air work, done in oil paint.  Paulette hopes to show beauty in the things she paints, regardless of how unpleasant a subject may be.  For instance, she painted a stuffed dog that isn't really beautiful, but the paintings of the dog are beautiful, portraying it favorably like when you get the pimples taken out of your high school senior year photos.  She hopes that her paintings are lies that tell some kind of truth, like Picasso is quoted as saying except in different words.

The show is curated by Tanya Gayer and made possible by Emma Spertus, two of the Bay Areas top art people.

The title of the show is up in the air as this article goes to press on a big printing press that will print over 10 billion copies of it, but it, the title will be something like "Gemalde Plein Air y en el Estudio" which translated from German, French and Spanish means, "Paintings Inside and Outside."

Strop Demands Key to City of Oakland

Strop Oakland

Oakland band, Strop, demands that Libby Schaaf give them the key to the city or they threaten to not play again in Oakland for another year.

"Unless we get that key, we're not gonna play again in Oakland for 365 days," says Stropper, Paulette Humanbeing, while the other Stroppers nodded in agreement.

Strop claims to be the heart and soul of California's port city, Oakland, and wants the recognition they feel they deserve. 

Says the same Stropper, Paulette "loudmouth" Humanbeing, "Ok, so we're not the brains of Oakland, but so F#cking what?  A body can live without the brain, but it can't live without its heart and soul.  Look at that chicken that lived without its head."

My Bigfoot Rises Again

This is a picture of Bigfoot I made in 2015.

In the early 1990's I wrote a short song, a ditty, about Bigfoot and played it at a show at the Depot, the student café in the student union at San Francisco State University.  It was a lavish affair with chairs and tables and people coming from the dorms to see me and Nelson Braxton and Brian Lenz and another really nice guy who played tuba on a song from a poorly written chart I had made.  I think his name was Mike, and he played the tuba, so it was really big sight to see, brass and shiny and visual.

I had essentially dropped out of school again after getting a job as a clerk in a law office.

Back to the story, I played this bigfoot song, and it had these lyrics.

I've never seen it but I hear it exists
it lives in the mountains where it's pretty nice
It's tall and hairy, an enigma to boot
I  hope I used "enigma" alright

starts with a "B"
ends with a "T"
in between, there's letters "i "g" "f" "o" "o" "t".
what's that spell?
It spells "bigfoot"

What's the problem
fuck if I know, but it makes for a saleable tv show.

So these are the lyrics I made, and I sang them to about 20 people, and they might have enjoyed it immensely and told their progeny as the years wore on, and it might have been a watershed experience, a once in a lifetime phenomenally good and spiritual experience.  Somebody videotaped the show on VHS, the predominant consumer video technology at the time, but I don't remember if this song was on the recording because the videographer was a little late to the show.   These were really heady times.  Really intense they were.  I didn't take any drugs before or after the show and a lot of people felt that the quality suffered because of the lack of drugs I had in my system at the time.

I'd always felt like the song was incomplete, and I brought it back into my consciousness because of the UFO & Bigfoot Club I'm in on facebook.  The group is administered by Jeffrey Vallance and Victoria Reynolds, experts in the field of the Bigfoot and UFO's, and it attempts to answer the question, "Why do people report seeing UFOs and Bigfoot in the same area?"  through evidence and illustrative pictures from the internet

Here is more text from the group explaining what the cult is about.

 IS THIS THEORY VALID?

Space Aliens in UFOs are actually evolved humans from the future. Their DNA is breaking down so they have to time-travel into the past to collect viable DNA. The Aliens abduct people to probe them for their reproductive tissue in order to create embryonic T-cells for medical usage. The human anus is also probed to collect samples of healthy digestive bacteria. Aliens travel through a time-portal that is precisely tuned to accept only travelers with the human DNA code. When the portal is open, Aliens can travel to the past—but as an unintentional side affect, ancient primates like Gigantopithecus are inadvertently transported into the future. These huge seeming-out-of-place primates are known as Bigfoot. (Sometimes present-day humans accidentally stumble into the portal and are involuntarily teleported to another time and place—from our perspective they just vanish). When the portal closes, every molecule that came through is routinely sucked back into the aperture. That’s why we never find alien technology or Bigfoot bones lying around.



So I reworked the song, failing to include any of the above theory in the lyrics because I forgot all about it and dropped the ball, but it's easy to edit lyrics.

I added the new verse

It has no family
Lives by itself
probably in a dark cave
It speaks a language of its very own
never heard by woman

Again, the song lacks the UFO/Bigfoot connection, but I hope to use your insanely generous donations to find the time to correct this omission.
