i am tired of winter… yada yada yada

When life gives you sleet – make SUMMER ART. There is little you can do about Mother Nature – except maybe alter her works of art a little to create a new work of art. Anyone who is experiencing the remnants of winter has just had it. My friend Dave pleaded with MN to stop… Continue reading i am tired of winter… yada yada yada

Dog Art

So ……. here is the latest watercolor and ink work – not overly complicated but lots of fun and very colorful.  Inspired by the incipit cold / hot / cold / freezing weather – there is actually a pretty big collection of these now.  You would have thought that “birds” would have been the first, given… Continue reading Dog Art
