Years ago I created textile designs. I no longer have the original paintings but I had color copies. I made them repeat in Photoshop for the various sizes on VIDA. I was not sure how they would turn out, sending them off and hoping for the best. I just received some scarves with my work on them. I’m really happy with the quality of product and the way the patterns look. Visit my shop on for more patterns and products.



Playing around

Trying to animate some of my drawings. This was a drawing from my sketch group last Tuesday.



Trying to get simple movements down with animation before we try something more ambitious. I took an animation course in college, but I’m 51 and never used it til now. I’m starting to really get into it. I have a sketchbook project from 2012 that I want to animate in some way. This is the first one….. Flight.



Trying out some animation and having a hard time getting it to work anywhere as a gif. Wondering if it works on here. Grant and I have the idea to try out some things. This was a test to see if I could make it work. More to come. I wanted to see if my sketching style worked for this.


Rainy Night Shots

This really became a thing for me in 2016, where I find myself out on rainy nights and fall for the reflections. Mostly in San Francisco but the bus one is from Berkeley. We are going into a week of rain now – they say – so I should have more. Enjoy.


The last thing I did this year.

I do paintings that stage homes for realtors, this helps pay for my studio. The owner always wants new work different work. So in trying to keep them happy I do a handful in one style, so they can mix and match. The last time I tried something different it bombed. In general they like my work. They have returned other artists work but have kept mine. So to redeem myself I did this today, incorporating stencils.

I went to the studio to try to clear some depression, seeing friends helps. It’s been a couple days before I could actually paint anything. At least with this – what they want is color, abstract and innocuous so it doesn’t offend anybody. I like this one and feel I can do a couple more to go with it.
