Wow, where did the week go? The balmy weather in Houston is seductive. We took the heater out of the fish pond today. There are 5 big fat goldfish in there and they are swiftly outgrowing our tiny pond. During the winter they parked themselves like little piglets at moma's teats at the heater.....all lined up. The elephant ears have crept into the pond unable to resist a source of constant water.

And I saw my first mosquito yesterday. They have awakened and are a bit lazy yet but already out for blood. My drawings in pen and ink continue but with some hesitation. Its been such a long time since I drew all the time. Painting has been my constant. But there is something so intimate about that black line moving on the good paper.

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.
