I Should Explain….
Here’s the latest: “Fireflies in July If that looks familiar to you, and maybe it doesn’t, I’ll explain anyway. It may remind you of this: That’s because I’m drawing something very familiar to me, which is the porches in this condo complex….so, you see, there’s a good reason for this repetition. Not a particularly interesting…
Making Peace with Winter
Hello folks! I’ve mentioned before about my seasonal depression, and guess what! It’s nearly winter again. I did a series of drawings one year, making peace with each month. For instance, this was “Making Peace with November”. And this was “Making Peace with December” I believe this one was “Making Peace with January”, but as…
I guess this is what I’m doing these days
Sometimes, I surprise myself. Sometimes, I’m surprised that I surprise myself. I thought the line of drawing styles went neatly from A to B to C, and so forth. I’m wrong. I did a drawing of a sky. I thought it would turn out like this: Much to my surprise, it didn’t. Am I using…

While I was unwinding from my day job, I called a good friend In the course of conversation, she asked if I had any Christmas cards for sale. Then it dawned on me, if I play my cards right, I could be making $$$$ with my artwork for Christmas, instead of slaving in a store…
Good-bye, New York
Well, I’m settled into my own place in Connecticut, now. It occurs to me, that this is the time of year, I’d get my view of the skyline back, because the leaves would fall off the sycamore. So, a revisit to that view.
