The week between Christmas and New Years is a little surreal to me. It’s a regular week, but it’s not, it’s time in limbo. Real, but out of the ordinary, like files in the Cloud. There have been better holiday weeks, than this in 2020. It’s been a rough year, for everyone. People are looking…

    Taking a second look

    So,it’s kind of like this…and I am sure that all of you go through this, no matter what you do…. Finding something that you discarded as totally, totally awful, then deciding it’s not so bad. As is the case with this. See,I hated the damn thing so much that I didn’t delicately trim it. Looking…

  • What’s your sign, Babe?

    What’s your sign, Babe?

    For those of you who weren’t around in the 1960’s, or weren’t paying attention, astrology was a big thing.  At parties, in classrooms, on jobs, “What’s your sign?”, was the big question…yeah, pretty lame, but it was a good icebreaker. For those of you who are interested, I’m a Pisces. For those of you who…

  • Buzzing


    Ever have one of those damn bugs, buzzing around your head in a threatening manner?  You don’t know whether to swat and kill the damn thing, or steadfastly ignore it.  Ideas in art can be the same way. The drawing I’m referring to is based on this photo:   Trust me.  It was a lot…

    Full moon in the afternoon

    And that rhymes! Here’s my latest. Sometimes, coming up with a title is the hardest part of a drawing. I suppose I could go the way of “Untitled 1”, “Untitled 2″and so on. But what fun is that? Most of my titles are pretty dull and boring, when I think about it. Here are some…

    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…

    Making Progress

    It’s Imbolc for Pagans, and Groundhog day for the rest.  It’s the day that early signs of spring are celebrated..the beginning of the end of the long winter. My cast is off, and I’m on to physical therapy. I can nearly write, which means I can nearly draw.  I’m typing normally again, in other words…badly.…

  • Happy End of the Holidays!

    Happy End of the Holidays!

    Okay, finally….life is back to normal. I have a little ritual in winter, as the days grow longer.  First off is Yule, then Christmas, New Years, and then January 2nd.  Here’s the drawing that I made in celebration of t hat celebration. The ritual includes such things as The Superbowl, and Mardi Gras.  And of…

    Summer and spring are almost too pretty to come up with something interesting and moody.
