My Mysterious Rug

I have to admit I stare at this rug that I got on ebay a few years ago. It's hard not to, I mean LOOK:

is this not a really cute fella instead of some random flower thing and look at this:

a doggie peaking over the border...I gotta tell ya, this happens to me all of the time. I look at random patterns and whole pictures come out at me, sometimes in MOTION with MUSIC...does this ever happen to you?

Today's Artist Is Glenn

Glenn Miller is a dear friend of mine who I met at the JazzFest in New Orleans 17 years ago. He is, among other things, a sketch artist and he approached my sister and I asking to borrow a pen. We had one and he right away did a sketch of us:
We wrote our address on the sketch and he promised to send us a copy, which he did and he and I became Penpals. Since we didn't know each other at all, it was easy to make up different personas for ourselves and soon, Rose Petal and Muffin Man (with the blueberry eyes, now known as g.muff) were born. Muffin would beg Rose Petal to come live with him on his alligator farm and eventually, she the letters. Since then, there have been many adventuresome REAL visits now between Glenn and I can truthfully say that we are family. Here's one of his etchings called Jazz Funeral:
Here's one of Glenn's newer styles which he calls Indian Space Painting:

Glenn survived Hurricane Katrina and I made him this website to help raise funds for him. To read more of his amazing story and see more of his artwork go here.

De Kooning

This is another diversion from my ongoing theme: art in my house.

"These paintings were not only shocking for their perceived hostility towards women, which is subject to debate, but also because de Kooning focused on the human figure at a time when art world dogma praised abstraction almost exclusively.

My Sister's Work

In the past, my sister Marty used to paint and I was one of her biggest fans. Here's a selection of some of the work that I have that she's done. This one is called the Professor's Worm:

Here's one that goes well on my "house" wall:

She painted a LOT of cat paintings, like these:

This is a newly aquired one, sort of sinister but funny:

And last but not least is this paint-by-numbers kitten painting she did when she was a wee little lass!

pretty good copycat

this was done by Jerry, a mentally challenged chap who helps out where I work. He loves to watch me paint and I got him to copy one of my paintings in this sweet pencil drawing.

Mom's Paintings

I have two of my mother's paintings. This is the first one she ever did:

And this is a quite large painting that we discovered in the basement, covered in dust:

I love them both!

Cowboy n Cat

This has been kicking around here for awhile. It's from my drip series, developed the night I saw the movie Pollack. It's easy to get attached to these for some reason! Alas, I put it on ebay a few days ago, for a measly $20...maybe it won't sell and I can keep it forever!!
