Happy Holidays

Posted Dec 2008

I worked some excellent Parties this week. This one, for instance, I really liked the people. How the man greeted me while shoveling the walk.... How the woman asked me to stay overtime - first one extra hour, then another half-hour - because they were so pleased with what I was doing. How their party started off slowly, then people started to really have Fun - laughing, wildly, throwing a big soft ball around....

And through it all, I even liked the pictures I drew. Here are some of them. They are my current-Party-Style-pictures:

SUNY Stony Brook

Posted Dec 2008

I'm tickled pink because I'm hired by Stony Brook University several times each year. It makes me feel like I've Arrived. Because I used to be an undergraduate student there. I got my Teaching degree from Stony Brook University. Dormed at "Stage XII".

The University contacted me professionally - they had no idea that I was 'one of them' before they found out about my Artwork. But when I go back there, it's always an emotional trip - trying to remember who I was back then, wondering if I'm 'one of them', the students who come to get drawn. The College experience - seems so important - but it's such a short time in our lives. What does it all mean???

Here are some of the pictures that I drew this year at 'Sports Night':

Community Center

Posted Dec 2008

I am so glad that I take photos of the people who I draw, the people who pass through my life. So I can remember them. It's not only the significant others in our lives who can affect us intensely - It could be anyone. Who knows if we say or do something that's taken to heart. If we say or do something that a person acts on, that affects the totality of her life.

Might even....be....the Purpose of My life.

And even on a simpler scale, it's good to remember people who were pleasant. Alive. Just a peaceful, appreciated part of my life. Here are some pictures that I drew at a Long Island Community Center. They've hired me at least 2 years in a row now. And I'd want to remember them when/if they call me back again next year. Since I draw at 3-5 parties each week, the photos help me remember the nice individuals who I appreciate - who keep me able to earn my living pleasantly. Which is, actually, quite monumental. If I couldn't earn a living, I could die.
