Swimming With Mimi

This has been on my den wall for awhile and I just thought I’d share it with you. It is actually two different drawings. I separated the images in the original photo to show the child in one drawing and the grandmother in the other. They are matted and framed separately but hang side by side on the wall.

Pencil on paper, each drawing is 7″ X 10″.

Arkansas Settlers

The first person I showed this cartoon to didn’t understand it. She wanted me to explain it to her. I didn’t. I won’t explain it to you either.

I did give her a hint. You’ve got to know a tiny bit about names of Arkansas towns.

I did this painting some time ago. It is in a private collection.

The tug of war between press and politico is never ending. One wants to gather and provide meaningful information and to elude evasive or misleading responses. One wants to avoid being trapped into giving harmful and incomplete soundbites and to express a point of view without it being distorted. An optimist appreciates the checks and balances as a beneficial system. A cynic begins to despise both sides.
