Sunnyside is not so sunny

Couldn’t live without the man I love, so I moved back in.  I live in a community called Sunnyside in Queens, NY.  A lot of the pictures I drew were objects in this little community.

But to my dismay, they’ve wrecked some of them.  Remember “My Brain off Drugs”?

 

jungle gym

 

The whole park, playground and all, has been bull-dozed.  Supposedly,they’re going to rebuild and make a better park.  They’re doing this just in time for the school children’s summer vacation, and in time for construction workers to get heat exhaustion.

I always saw kids using this jungle gym, what a waste,

 

Remember “Scraggly Weed”?

 

??????????????????

 

The neighborhood fuss-budgets won out….the bush has been hacked down to a stump.  I’m glad I memorialized it when I did.

 

As for what I’m doing now….just for fun, I’m doing glittery, rhinestoney, Pop Art portraits of celebrities.  Well, in all honesty, I’ve just done one so far: Michael Jackson.

I put it on Ebay to find out if I get any reaction.  I figure, I”ve got all this glitter and rhinestones left from the Namaste series, why not play?

Sometimes, never happens

I look back on some of my old work: “Companions”, “Autumn Song” and others, and I’m reminded of the relationship that I thought would never end. But both he and I are no longer the people we were at the beginning. My art and relating it to contributing to the world are foremost for me, now. So, I left.

I’m living in a furnished room until I save the money for my own place. In the meantime, I can only do small drawings, and I left my scanner and good camera behind. So, from my Android, I present “The Dancers”.As you can see, relationships are still on my mind. I looked at this again, and wondered, “Are they dancing or wrestling?”

Just a note…does anyone care how much I hate Windows 8?
