Mixed Media Graphic 5" x 7"
Friends come in many shapes, sizes, different backgrounds,proximities and EVEN TOONS. This is a ticket counter for entrance into a theater. Of course, it is apparent the sailor is trying to get his groove on...AND there I stand...CRAMPING his style. Another wax display at the Naval museum in Pensacola.
A TIME TO READ (Thumbnail) - Graphic 5" x 7" -
Upon my visit to the Naval museum in Pensacola returning from a trip to Perdido Key, I found these interesting wax displays. Because of my sense of the ridiculous sometimes thought I would share it. Don't you just hate it when A TOON peers over your shoulder.

UNENDING THOUGHTS (Thumbnail) - GRAPHIC "11" x 12" - I think too much. I think about everything in this life and try to imagine things beyond. I remember the first time I got on the internet, listening to my high school teacher explain to me that I would do better with a career involving my hands and being so perplexed, not understanding abandonment, so curious as to the differences in appearances of individuals, hair texture, thought patterns, the nature of things, why are we here?, where does it end?...I think too much...I know.
Holidays are continuously filled with so many vibrant and eclectic colors running into each other and often creating a HODGE PODGE...but the simple colors of Hannukah...speak so reverently and so softly.

GRAPHIC 11" x 17"
The mind of a child and all the gears that constantly whirl - imagination and curiosity - always asking "WHY NOT?" So, yes, I can GATHER/CATCH some water...in a net??

MAXING AND RELAXING (Thumbnail) - COLORED PENCIL 9" X 12" I enjoy drawing forms sitting and laying - provides ample room for detail. The human body is such a perfect structure! I reworked this piece and labeled it "Untitled." I entered it into an art show entitled "Where does it hurt?". To make the drawing in line with the theme, I did weave some gold thread through the piece giving the effect of injury. I use gold thread often in various art pieces.
A HUMBLE ATTEMPT - THE MASTER AND THE STUDENT - PENCIL 16" x 20" - This is my humblest attempt at a BASIC replication to the original drawing by one of the greatest masters - Leonardo Da Vinci- This is a link to the original drawing done by Leonardo - Neptune and Sea Horses.
WOE is BLUE - Watercolor 9" x 12" - This drawing represents many things to me. The attire of the woman reflects she is battered - note she wears an apron as well. I intentionally painted the bench BLUE with the worn/aged slats to show her pain, anger, frustration, and despair are being absorbed by the bench...leaving her with no color...lifeless...The reality is that this was an actual colored photo taken of a woman in Spokeane. I only drew and painted what I saw as an artist...simple but a stripped state of being.

Pablo Picasso and happy to say I have a reprint of the Blue Nude. I also have a print by Picasso entitled "The Friend" - a supposed Paris reprint - 1960. I found in an old antique store in Knoxville about 8 or 9 years ago. Still trying to find out info since it is a Paris reprint. I've looked for it on web sites but not found yet. Anyone with info, please advise.
Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Francisco de Goya, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Brembrandt van Rijn, Andy Warhol

A graphic piece entitled "Decisions" - Was in a pondering mode in an attempt to decide which pieces of watercolor artwork I was going to display at an artshow. From the mirror you can see artwork on the wall. It is me there on the floor. This graphic hits close to home as I do this quite often in my "Decisions". The actual paintings on the floor are real WATERCOLOR mediums which I painted and were exhibited in an artshow.
I was thinking about my many FACES in appearance but in art the various aspects of what I see and feel. ART transends so many facets - I've got to be a left brain thinker. When looking at colors, I can actually stroke them as if they are entities -my COLLAGE.

This artwork is called "Touches of Peace." It's mixed media piece of watercolor, pencil and graphics. Inside the faces are all the countries of the world. I particularly enjoyed it as it expressed my heartfelt feelings regarding the world/earth and peace. We must begin to experience each other, realize and know, which gives us understanding and a journey toward PEACE. This artwork was displayed at a Holistic Growth Center and I am pleased to say it SOLD. I also hope that the message sells as well.
