Mernie Buchanan Studio
Welcome! Ive retired from doing large art festivals, so this is my virtual booth, and launch zone to portfolios of available art. I also wrote a roller coaster of a memoir to explain what science cannot . . . full of colorful theories with little proof. It offers a fun and detailed guide for how-to (and how not to) make, show and sell creative work as a lifelong vocation. Thanks for stopping by.
Stories of a Colorful LifeA candid and often humorous memoir explains why this life didn’t go quite as planned despite excellent advice—from both the angels and the dogs.
