Hello? Is Anybody Listening?

It's been a while (darn near a year). Things have gone by quickly and I hope to be back. I am updating another blog (as my website) http:\\ if you are interested, otherwise, is still up and available.

I hope to be adding some new works soon. I'be been doing very small drawings in a pocket sketchbook and am happy with the results so far. Maybe I can et some of those up for your viewing enjoyment.

A wonderful choir concert tonight and a cup of tea awaits before I turn in for the night.

Until later -

Happy Mother's Day!



To all of you who are mothers, moms, caregivers, friends, grandparents, dads, older siblings... anyone who take care of someone else... Happy Mother's Day! While I own my mom a lot more than I can pay back, I see in my wife that same tenderness and caring that will hopefully help my daughter to grow up to appreciate all that her mom has done for her, as I appreciate all that my mom has done for me.

A mom, by definition. is a pretty narrow title. I feel fortunate to have had a mother that raised me well and helped form me, balance me out and give me the life I have and help make me the individual I am. I will be calling her today for sure. Please call that person that has influenced you in such a positive way, whether it be your mom, dad, uncle, aunt, grandparent, neighbor, good friend or whomever... you never know when you'll have that chance again.

See my mom at and check out the portraits section - "Ginger" is my mom. My daughter's mom is "Julie"... she's in the portraits also.

Happy Mother's Day Julie, Mom and Grandma!

Since it has not been a daily or even weekly happening, I thought I'd post a couple of images. Please... share my space with your friends and don't forget to look at for my larger body of works.

Long Time Coming

It has been a while since I have visited the blog. My portraits have continued to happen every day, and the best ones I have found, or rather the most fulfilling, have been drawn from life. That is not, however, a surprise. My lovely wife has softened on the idea of having her portrait drawn, which is good, because at 10:00 at night, there are only a couple of options for me to work from. I also have found that the sketchbooks have been a great option instead of the single sheets of watercolor paper. Although the texture is smooth, I enjoy the tone of the paper and ease of carrying it around.

25 February 2008

In addition to the exhibition in La Crosse at the Pump House Gallery, the daily drawings continue. 25 February 2008 is one of many of Julie Korb that I am not sure if she even knows are being drawn. I love drawing from the live model, even if they are unaware.

Pump House Gallery - La Crosse, WI

Tuesday, February 26 - Saturday, March 15, 2008 at the Pump House Gallery in La Crosse, WI, I will be exhibiting my many portraits of my friends and family. I am very thankful to the people at the Pump House for the opportunity to share my work to Western Coast of the state of Wisconsin. The installation was a great success to brighten up the newly remodeled Pump House Regional Arts Center and I wish them a very hearty congratulations on 30 years as an arts center for the La Crosse and surrounding areas. The show will be coming down on Saturday the 15th of March, so please join me (and bring a friend) on Friday the 14th for the reception. I hope to see a lot of people there, old faces and new faces alike.

21 February 2008

Politics can bring out the joy and celebration for many. What joy this celebrator felt when the MQM party won 19 seats in the Pakistan Parliamentary Election on Monday. How happy were you when the votes came in on your local election?
