I finally got my scanner to work again so I can scan some of my old work to post even if I am still having a problem getting myself to do some new work.

Just returned a great DVD to the library yesterday. Picasso: Magic, Sex, Death (2001) This is a DVD that I would like to own someday but for now I am being good and not buying any new books, CD's, DVD's and borrowing them from the library instead.

My internet service was going in and out because the squirrels had chewed the lines…again!

I still do a lot of thinking about writing/drawing/painting, but so far mostly just thinking about it. I have been doing a lot of reading. I recently finished the following books:
A Bad Beginning - A Series of Unfortunate Events - Book the First by Lemony Snicket
I really enjoyed this book.. I loved the style of the illustrations which were done by Brett Helquist.

The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream by Paulo Coelho
This was a great book which I will be reading again.

#!*%$@! Technology! Love it/hate it.

I am writing this off line since my internet service has been out and I am unable to work! I have so many continual problems with software, computers, hardware etc. that it makes me wonder if that is a sign that I should be doing something else.

I got my cable shut off a few months ago because I just couldn't afford it any more. I miss the Digitial Video Recorder, BBC America, all the Art channels and shows! Because of this I have been doing a lot of reading. I just finished the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling which I really enjoyed. I was looking for similiar books so I just read Artemis Fowl - Book One by Eoin Colfer. I enjoyed it but not as much as the Harry Potter books. Anyone have any book recommendations?

This one was done around 6-2004. I started by tracing my hand and Sean's hand. This was done with markers. Click on picture for a larger view.

Here is a picture of Sean and I - "American Gothic" and a picture of Sean "The Scream" at the Farmington Founders Festival 7-18-2003. Click on pictures for a larger view.

Blue Pencil

Not sure when I did this one but I scanned it 6-3-2004. I was enjoying using my new Prismacolor Pencils. So much softer/richer than the cheap ones I used to use! Click on picture for a larger view.

Starting this Blog has finally got me to update my Art pages a little so I guess that is progress! Here is another item I did that was too big to fit on my scanner, so I scanned it from each end. This was done with markers. Click on the pictures to see a larger view. (189040 bytes) (184692 bytes)

Mosaic Garden

I will start by posting some of my "art" that I did previously. I sit down with supplies and my only rule is that I finish what I start. I don't usually know exactly what I am going to do when I start. It just sort of evolves. I have not shown my work to many people so I would be curious to know what you think about it.

When I was about 2/3rds done it reminded me of an overhead view of a mosaic garden and pool so that is how I finished it. This was done with markers.
