Things go in their own directions.

Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks to all of you who have been my customers and to those of you who read and look at my blogspot. I had big plans this holiday to do some quirky paintings of Santa Clause and elves but as you can see, those plans became memories of "something I was gonna do, once." For some reason, art for me has its own brain and loves to laugh at me when I "think" I know what I will make. So here's a little of what I've been doing. I'll have whole lot more after Christmas so don't go anywhere!

Le Karousel (16"X14" wood assemblage, acrylic, pencil, epoxy topcoat) The text in Le Karousel reads: " I was ever so clearly convinced that in the tide of the moment, I had chosen a joyous but rather strange day to take a trip on the merry-go-round. Though not for the faint of heart, I highly recommend it". (I'm sure you can figure this one out.)

A Munchkin in the Hot Seat (15"X13" acrylic, pencil, on wood)
Like most children, me and my twin sister grew up with a Wizard of Oz obsession. At the age of 3, we would go around singing, "we're off to see the lizard, the wonderful lizard of Oz!" We actually thought that the movie was called the Lizard of Oz. So this piece is sort of based on that misconception and the text reads: "You haven't been representing the lollipop guild very well and the Lizard of Oz is Pissed!"
