Swimming With Sharks

I went scuba diving in the giant 350,000 gallon tropical reef habitat tank at The Aquarium of the Pacific, in Long Beach, California. There are over 1000 fish and other creatures in this giant aquarium. I was invited to dive in the giant tank because I brought in several sculptures for the Aquarium's Night Dive evening event.  This was an absolutely incredible experience, and I got some amazing photographs of sharks and other cool creatures.  Take a look at: Shark Dive!

The Russians Secretly Animate California Artists Painting

When you are an artist, it is smart to Google yourself once in a while to see where your work ends up.  I have found my work used in books, magazines, newspapers, copied by other artists, used as a teaching aid in classrooms, and on many websites, all used without my knowledge.  Some artists don't like that sort of thing, but I realize that with my art out there on the web, unauthorized use of stuff is going to happen.  In most cases I have no problem with it.  Here is one of my paintings that I found on Google that was animated in Russia, I think.  Check out:  Animation

It's titled "animation of picture (Bruce Gray) 3D"

I Smelled My Dream

I had a dream last night that I was at a party. A beautiful woman walked by and I could smell her perfume. I didn't know you could smell your dreams.  COOL!  
I should have asked for her number.
