Illustration Friday - "Adapt"

In challenging economic periods we sometimes have to adapt to acquiring what we really need, instead of what we might want. I think those great philosophers, the Rolling Stones, said something like that.

Illustration Friday - "Cracked"

A rooster crowing is the classic soundtrack to the crack of dawn.

Illustration Friday - "Contagious"

I think it's ironic, in a good way, that laughter is not only contagious, but also the best medicine.

Illustration Friday - "Parade"

I'm glad for the opportunity to bring out this oldie from the 1980s. It was originally created for the cover of a game called "Kings and Things".

These paintings are a part of my September show at Norwood Flynn Gallery. Each is 10 inches by 8 inches, and they are all acrylic on canvas. Since the theme of the show is roosters, I'll be painting lots of them this summer.
Because my painting interests are form, texture and color, roosters make the perfect subjects. They provide opportunities for plenty of all three.

Illustration Friday - "Hierarchy"

Cats seem to consider themselves superior to just about anything, and therefore are on top of any "hierarchy".
This piece was originally done for a calendar, the theme of which was "odd facts". The odd fact in this example was that Napoleon had Ailurophobia, or fear of cats.
