Whoever is sitting with friends is in the midst of a flower garden,
though he may be in the fire.
Whoever sits with an enemy is in the fire,
even though he is in the midst of a garden.

I did this a few months ago with a Sharpie marker on an index card.

Since I have been doing more drawings, doodles etc. and scanning more of them, I have also been playing with them using PSP - JASC Paint Shop Pro Version 6.0. (I know there are much newer versions, but I just don't feel the need to upgrade ANY of my software programs like I used to. $$$ Free at last!) I can take one scan and work with it for hours and never run out of ideas of what to do with it. I guess it occupies and soothes my ADHD/obsessive-compulsive mind. Now I just need to figure out a way to make a living doing it!

Though you cast it aside, what fate calls yours will not depart.

Here comes the Sun…

I did this drawing 5-2006 with my *NEW* Farber-Castell set of 4 PITT artist pens I bought at Office Max for $7.29. Very nice 4 nib set! It is on an index card because I just can't and/or don't seem to create on nice or "real" art paper, canvas, etc. I guess it is a step up from when I went to see Robert Maniscalco a few years ago for an art consultation and he asked why my paintings and drawings were on newsprint!

Art of acceptance…

The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.

Imagination was given to us to compensate for what we are not;
a sense of humor was given to us to console us for what we are.
