"She Always Wanted to Be an Artist", lithograph

This is a lithograph I made of my Mom several years ago.  It's drawn from my memory of her always working in the kitchen.  On closer inspection you can see the letters A-R-T-I-S-T on her drying towel.  She is one of the main reasons I make art today.  She would take me to our local Brooks Art Museum in Memphis once a month..  We admired works by Ingres, Marisol Escobar, Bouguereau and Walter Anderson. She rarely had time to make art when I was little but when she did it was magnificent. Most of my current work is about her.

"Now?...NotYet.", an old drawing revisited...

My hope is that someday our country will elect the best government not based on gender, religion or sexual preference.

"Crossing Paths", sketch

Story of two sisters with different path choices... ongoing...

half a sketch...

Can't get my new sketchbook to fit on me flatbed scanner : (.  Could tile it but in a hurry.  I like the simple red line of this sketch with some graphite for tone.
