Truth, News, and Explosions

On Wednesday, January 6th, my art group was meeting on Zoom.  Someone broke in and said, “Trump supporters are invading the capital.” We quickly dismissed the meeting and turned to our TVs to view what was happening. Windows and doors of our capital were being broken, men were climbing walls, confederate flags waved, and tearContinue reading “Truth, News, and Explosions”

Rabbit Emotions

Are you ready to see more Rabbit Art?  I looked over my collection and decided that some of them are very appropriate to the times.  RABBIT RAGE isn’t a very nice painting, but it may convey some of what I feel about the man who has been furiously tweeting from the white house for theContinue reading “Rabbit Emotions”

After Iraq invaded Kuwait, a coalition of countries and the United States, invadedContinue reading “The Gulf War”

Mica Mountain

When I was visiting with childhood friends, Mary and Milam, in my home state of Alabama, I mentioned I mentioned a photographic collage technique using mica.  Milam, Mary’s husband, said that he had lots of mica on his property, and then he left the room while Mary and I reminisced. After a while he returnedContinue reading “Mica Mountain”

The Search for Resolution

They say that artists must suffer.  This painting is evidence of that.  I will share with you the various experimental stages it went through in its “Search for Resolution”.  It started its life as an abstraction.  (I don’t have photos of the first two stages.)  But, it seemed that all this “light from the heavensContinue reading “The Search for Resolution”
