Icons in Perspective

Recent 11" x 14" pen and ink perspective study.  The picture shows both spatial perspective and time perspective with pop culture icons (Mickey Mouse, Alfred E. Newman and C-3PO) depicted in 20 year increments (1930s, 1950s, 1970s)

What to do with Green Tomatoes?

Problem:  some of my Southern Exposure heirloom tomatoes never ripened, and one of my food contribution assignments for Thanksgiving is a cranberry dish.  What to do?  Solution:  make my own cranberry, green tomato chutney.  Delicious, especially when eaten with homemade Canellini heirloom beans from Ranch Gordo, topped with a dollop of freshly made pesto, stewed chicken from Prather Ranch, fresh bread from Brickmaiden and fresh collard greens and celery root from Draper Farm.  Why ever eat out?

Oak Tree

Which is better:  A) Oak Tree photoshop composite with long ago pen & ink & marker drawing of San Francisco as seen from Mt. Tamalpais (top) vs B) Oak Tree original drawing done at Pt. Reyes National Seashore (bottom)?  Can't decide!

Do You Know Who You're Voting For?

A poem on the benefits of voting with your eyes wide open

You can't see the truth
When your eyes are closed to reason
Or when the fog has blurred your view
When you open your eyes
And can see clearly
Then you'll know
You can see the truth
When you look for it 

Sunflowers Galore

Continuing on my theme of sunflowers, as first seen in my blog October 15th and again in my blog October 19th, the painting on top of this trio of paintings is a new oil on canvas 18" x 24" titled "Mixed Flowers in Vase." Sunflowers are also a theme of Autrey family painters with the watercolor in the middle a large, gorgeous painting by my mother J.L. Autrey and the trippy sunflower in vase below, an oil by my father E.A. Autrey.   One could say that families that paint sunflowers together, stay together!
