Angels with Wings on Their Heels

So this marks a return of sorts –

I hit an artistic wall after the playing card project and haven’t felt like doing anything. It is still kind of concerning, because I’m wondering if I’m out of the woods yet. This picture has been a long time coming, probably clear back to March.

Ideas pop into my head and I think, “That would be cool to do” – then I go about my day. This idea kept drawing it’s self over and over though. I ended up in the hospital again sometime in October and the first thing I drew when I got in there was this “Angels with Wings on Their Heels”
  It’s a representation of how quickly some things come and go. I could tell you all the literal things that have come and gone, but it won’t help you enjoy the piece anymore. I rather you just notice she hasn’t got any other wings except the ones on her heels, not your conventional angel! Enjoy!

A Good Idea Finally Comes To Fruition

I was sitting at Jack in the Box a month or two ago when this great idea for a elephant came to me. I was asked earlier this week how my ideas come to me; do they come as a feeling or do I picture them in my head and just draw what I see ~ both are good examples of how they come . With this piece I have to add a third ~  they come FAST! I had a pen and a paper sack and just a few minutes. Turns out I was drawing the Joker card for this latest project. Cool huh?! Above is the progression from bag to card. The Harlequin~ish checker board back is another thing that came out of thin air. all hand done.

The "Refrigerator" Project

"Refrigerator Art" is my new project that will show interested folk my most recent body of work, its an online business card of sorts. I will still be doing this blog of course. "Refrigerator" will pay more attention to the art and less to the "chit-chat"
