    Boomer, Retire!

    Well, why don’t I? Surely I’m at the age where I should be sipping white wine on a European beach somewhere. So, why don’t I? Well, stayed tuned, here’s the answer. You read so many accounts about people’s regrets when they are on their deathbeds…….mostly they say they wish they had spent more time with…

  • No. Simply No.

    No. Simply No.

    One thing I think most artists have, is a lot of well meaning people who give you their ideas and pictures., expecting splendid pieces of art. Nope. The earliest experience of that was with my previous partner, the man above. We were living in an inexpensive apartment, our only pets were 6 legged vermin. Lots…

    Leaving On a Jet Plane

    As I was drawing this, the song “Leaving on a Jet Plane”, kept going through my mind. For those to young to know it, it was written by John Denver, although many other musical artists covered it. Sadly, John Denver died in a small plane crash, in 1997. Maybe not a jet plane, but it…

  • Throwing Away My Art Training

    As I start this drawing, I’m reminded of the words my teachers would say to me.  “Don’t draw every leaf.  Make a pattern of the light and shadow of the foliage, and just give a hint of texture”.  Okay, yes, that makes for wonderful landscapes.  However, what if I do want to draw every blessed…

  • And Suddenly….A Cat!

    After grumbling about the day job, and not getting enough time to draw….I finally got some quality time in with my paper and pencils.  So, I have started the drawing of Pumpkin.
