Young Gene

Back in the olden days I would often do my drawings sitting in the den with a drawing board on my lap. Just for the heckuvit I decided I would try that again. I chose to do a simple charcoal sketch. While it was fun I think I’ll stick to my easel in the studio.

Gene Tierney is the most beautiful woman in the history of cinema. And I say that with great respect to so many lovely ladies over the years. When I came across a photo of Ms Tierney without much make up I was committed to doing a drawing. Unfortunately, the drawing-board-in-the-lap-in-the-Lazy-Boy-in-the-den experiment didn’t do her justice. But I think her natural beauty still comes out.

Drought Relief

This will mean more to my Texas friends than to others. A few days ago many lakes were too low to put a boat in. Now many are over flowing and having to release too much water.

Four Little Hearts

It has been seven years since that May 12 Mother’s Day, 2008. In memory of my precious wife who got to love her grandchildren ever so briefly. Another song I wrote for her has already been shared with family and friends. I now have the courage to share it with everyone else.
