Started digging through some of my flat files today, just curious what the layers held. A lot.
Old sketches, show invitations and photos mostly, with the old sketches being the most interesting.
I guess I always thought: when in doubt draw it out.

It feels fine to do a nasty satirical drawing of your crumby boss or the ignorant political situations and of personal dramas. I once did a drawing and also a gouache of my parents in Viking helmets screaming and pointing fingers at me huddled on the floor. I mean, please, they weren't THAT bad. There are plenty of drawings and paintings of the obstinate person I'm married to.....ignoring what I am saying. So, there are also paintings and drawings of me threatening him with a knife or a bonk on the head. Honestly, he's no worse than any other man....and ok I love him anyway.

About Me

My photo
I am living and painting in the little town of Houston. A far way from my San Francisco beginnings. I paint what I see of the human condition, be it human, animal or object. The glimmer of humor, pathos, and spirit in so much of what I see is the basis of what I paint.
