Hello all. A recent effort of a tower on a recently renovated 1923 resort hotel in 9000 foot high Cloudcroft, New Mexico. The beautiful copper clad roof was catching the morning light in a kind of surreal way. Acrylic on canvas panel. 8″X10″ More to come as I make my way back here.
After Paris, I came down to Avignon in Provence, to see a college buddy’s presentation at the huge theatre arts festival. The town is crawling with arts types and all the hype that goes with it. A bit of a sensory overload. The city is ancient and magical. My morning walk through a quiet series of narrow streets was unforgettable. Just me and the 14th century gargoyles and saints. More to come!
After getting sidetracked when COVID hit, I finally got over to Europe to visit friends and see art and architecture.
Stunning, amazing, diverse, over the top with tourists as well. I am hiding out on the top floor of a somewhat funky old hotel, the view of the tower not too far off. A few pics, more to come. Au revoir!
Where do I begin?
The way that I relate to the world is changing. Life can be so unpredictable and exciting!
This painting I did of a gathering storm cloud over Show Low. Let’s hope it won’t be long before Tucson gets its Monsoon Rainstorm On!
As I travel the state we currently call Arizona, its beauty keeps unfolding in more complex ways. I like to go where Man is a seldom guest. Passing beside Lake Roosevelt, my spirit soared when I saw all the water coming off the mountains! It was surreal. So much had come in that lower areas were flooded. Trees were partially submerged. Desert like islands appeared with cactus on them. Up at higher elevations, the melting snow fields made divine graffiti! Images of the lake to come.
Hello again from a little place called Cochise, AZ. I am close to the Chiricahua N.M. and so here is a iPad sketch from a cold day yesterday. Apache Pass today!
Time marches on, and so do I. The Tucson Weekly era is over, as might some other things we need to move on from.
I am now up on the Colorado Plateau visiting Petrified Forest National Park. It’s like a box of chocolates. Here are 3 little watercolors inserted into an old cartoon armature. Drawn partially on the iPad. A true mixed media.
2 cougars in California and a favored Tucson bobcat were killed recently by vehicular manslaughter. Man’s presence in the natural world can be lethal. Please be aware out there.
This painting was done yesterday of the view out my cabin window. The Chiricahuas are a magical place.
8″X8″ Acrylic on canvas panel. NFS More to come shortly!!
Hello, and welcome to the future. After nearly 35 years cartooning and illustrating for the Tucson Weekly, I am moving on.
This is the last cartoon in today’s Weekly. I will continue to do my strip, just only on Facebook and my site. Please come back often, and leave a comment if you please. Let’s keep Democracy alive in Tucson!
I am testing my new drag/drop graphic placement, and text manipulation.
Here is a direct grab from my library. A small acrylic study of Elephant Head rock in the morning.
