I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

Building a Book

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.” 

I have not read Mr. (now deceased) Adams' books but I really related to his quote above.  In fact, I always feel that if a project is not complete before a deadline then I am really totally behind.  Makes no sense, it's just how I am.

To that end I am thrilled to hear the whooshing noise of a deadline go by as I finalize the last of several paintings and drawings I am doing for a friend's book on Marrakech, Morocco.  Not stealing her thunder nor revealing the gist until she (and others) hear their deadlines whoosh into publication, I nevertheless less will share some of the pieces I've sent.

grinding argon nuts in the Atlas Mountains, oil

camel waiting for a rider, pen and ink

mint tea service, oil

Mosque entrance, w/c in sketchbook

the rug souk, oil

pen and ink, portal

conundrum: I like the unfinished nature
of this piece so it is resting.
As the "real deadline" is actually another week away I
have time to tweak and cogitate... that sound.

Next on the list.
