What Me Worry?

2010 New Year's Resolution:  Have more fun, worry less.  Good advice from MAD Magazine's Alfred E. Newman.

This is the 3rd in a series of vases filled with scanned objects - in this case a few of my oil paint brushes.

Red Vase with Marbles

This is the second in a series of vases filled with scanned objects.  The red glass vase was given to me on my 60th birthday.  It is now filled with scanned glass marbles I've had since the 1950s.

The Art of Recycling

Having spent the day listening to the rain and scanning stones I picked up in Paros, Greece and Willamette, Oregon I wanted to put the rocks to good use.  So, I've taken a vase painted by J.L. Autrey and combined it with some scanned carrot artwork, my rocks and a scan of one of my brooches.  Voila! A beautiful still life I call "Vase with Scanned Objects."

Toy Story

New 8x10 oil on canvas still life painting.  I've had the truck for years but recently added a menagerie of bird toys bought at Susan's Store Room.

Pink Candy

I painted this abstract before my most recent physical.  Because of my love for hard candy, I shouldn't be surprised that my cholesterol levels are back up in dangerous territory (243 mg/dl) and my glucose levels (99 mg/dl) are too high as well.  I guess I'll have to get my sugar fix in future looking at candy art rather than eating it.
