This Is Going to Be a Doozy
Does Nature ever give you a gift? One special moment, one glimpse of sublime beauty that will last forever? Or God, or Universe, or Krishna etc.? I had one such moment as I was getting ready to do this particular drawing, of this particular tree: It was a honeybee, gathering nectar from a maple tree…
One Step at a Time
I’ve always been able to find inspiration for artwork within a couple of blocks of where I live. That was true in NYC, too. For instance: A couple of doors down from me. Finding so much inspiration is something I’m pretty proud of. Perhaps it’s silly, but there it is. Same with the tree I…
What do I think of other artists’ work? I love it! I love it better than my own work, if I am honest. Mostly, I prefer representational work, although some abstract blows me away, too. What I really like is work similar to my own, only better. Frustration hits, though, when something in the non-art,…
No, not really, I just thought it would be a good title. This is my latest, and if you look closely, you’ll see a bird and a couple of squirrels. One thing I discovered is that just drawing leaves turns out to be boring to both the artist and the viewer. I’m pretty happy with…

More Trees, Please!
Looking back on the final version of “Reserved”, I am disappointed. I had such high hopes for it. It may end up in my New Years “worst “. Live and,with any luck at all, learn But! I did a drawing today, which might work large. It’s bold enough with a good solid design. This is…
But something I have copyright on is my own work. So, here are some drawings of the sun shining through.
The Devil is in the Details
My father was a detail man. He was a commercial artist, and his specialty was filling in the designs on the fabric of shirts, pants, diamonds, and just about anything else that was advertised. I can’t imagine how he had the patience to do such a thing, but, perhaps it’s just that it was income,…
