This is a colored pencil drawing, about 18" x 24", of a note. The birds may not be music lovers. Actually, they look like they would love the music. For lunch.

This is a colored pencil drawing, about 11" x 14", of an Olmec situation. The Olmec were the ancient Pre-Columbian people who are famous for their gigantic sculptures of heads. This drawing is of one such head, with additions.

You can bid on this drawing on eBay, starting at a measly $5.00, at the following URL:

Bamiyan Buddha

This is a color drawing of the Buddha from a sculpture at the St. Louis Art Museum. The drawing is about 16" x 24", in Prismacolor Artstix on tinted charcoal paper. I love this sculpture; it has a look that is regal and transcendent and serene. And I am happy with this drawing. Really speaking, the sculpture is so beautiful that it is hard to draw it badly.

Red Frog

This is a serigraph image, about 11" x 14" in size, in silkscreen ink on unbleached muslin. This image was printed using paper stencils. I learned by bitter personal experience that if not handled properly, paper stencils disintegrate during the printing process. For this reason, there are only two of these frog prints in existence. Both copies are now in the hands of very dear friends of mine.

Have You Hugged Your Robot Today?

This is the only picture I have posted that has not sold, and I don't know why. Maybe you can tell me. Is the drawing too suggestive? Is it badly drawn? Is it because the lady is naked? Is it because the robot is blue? Is it because people just don't want to think about loving their machines? I would seriously like to know what the problem is with this image, because I thought it was really funny, and I was very disappointed with the negative reception it received. So please comment. Thank you.

This drawing, which I sold to a dear, close friend, is called "Stone Woman Road" It is finished in Derwent colored pencils. I like the Derwents because they are very light-fast. The paper is also acid-free and very archival. This drawing could last in its present form, for many, many years, which is probably more than I can say about myself.

This drawing is an 11" x 14" watercolor called "Desert Solids". This drawing sold on eBay.
