My summer teaching break started Saturday and my birthday is tomorrow. I plan to eat a meal with family that reminds me of good times in New Orleans: boiled seafood (shrimp, crabs, and crawfish) along with corn and hot potatoes.
Here are two small drawings I completed recently. As usual, these portraits are from my subconscious mind and your comments help me to understand them better. The first portrait below is of a woman with circling rays of light behind her. The second drawing started out as gender ambiguous and now is a man.
My Upcoming Exhibits
I plan to participate in two upcoming exhibits at the New Orleans Healing Center with the Second Story Co-op Gallery on 2372 St. Claude Ave. in New Orleans, a group show and solo show. If you will be in New Orleans, please save the dates:
