Baby Daughter

A long time ago I was practicing with charcoal (and a touch of chalk) and I came up with this drawing of my daughter when she was a baby. It was done on a piece of regular ol’ poster board. Over the decades of sitting in my flat file the white has turned quite yellow.

Another oldie, an assignment in a college art class; my one and only attempt at a linoleum print.

Cookie Drama!

The attempt to get a truly objective account of what’s going on in the world today usually requires flipping from one news channel to the next and then trying to balance the viewpoints of what they think you should think about what they think is important. That’s why God invented the remote. It also has an “off” button.
