September 3, 2021 – Original Artwork

Since I had another ‘full’ day today which consisted of packing up the last of our household goods, I didn’t have the time or energy to put my Nikon to work. For this reason, I’m going to feature (a copy of) one of my original drawings. I actually gave the original (as a gift) toContinue reading “September 3, 2021 – Original Artwork”

August 2, 2021 – Original Artwork

I was going to post a nature photo today but I couldn’t find anything that really ‘spoke’ to me, so I decided to share one of my paintings. Years ago, during photography class, my instructor asked me to take close-ups of different objects. As it happened, I had a calculator handy.

By this, I mean setting a serious goal to achieve something within a specific timeframe. I’ve set some fairly lofty goals throughout my life. I wanted to have children, I had three. I wanted toContinue reading “March 30, 2021 – Reassessing the Situation”

December 20, 2020 – The mystery of J. Denaro.

Have you ever come across a piece of art with an unknown signature? I am sure you have. You can walk into practically any thrift store and there are usually countless paintings available for purchase, signed by countless ‘unknowns’. When my oldest sister passed away over three decades ago, she had in her possession nearlyContinue reading “December 20, 2020 – The mystery of J. Denaro.”
