I Speak for the Trees!

I wanted to show a neat photo of a tree in our front yard. I think it captures the beauty and magic of this particular tree well. Above is a clip of "The Lorax" by Dr. Seuss. Feelin' really green today. Go out and hug a tree would ya' please?

Hairy Puppet and the Cabeza of Fuzz

I've now added a head of hair to my fairy puppet. I'll trim it a bit so he wont be looking like a blue- haired Fabio for long.

Could'a, Should'a

Today I spent the better time of my day avoiding this. Why? Because I was doing some painting. Below are three images for the "Bilbo meets Gollum" illustration that I finally started to paint this week. It's about half finished but I wanted to show what I've done so far. Of course tomorrow I'll have to tackle that big mess in the sink...I think. Hey, that rhymes!

More Skies

Skies are like snowflakes: No two are alike. I guess that's one of the reasons I enjoy photographing them so much.

Remebering George Harrison Feb. 25, 1943- Nov. 29, 2001

Has it really been nine years since George Harrison passed away? November 29th 2001 was the date cancer took him from this world and on to the next. Above is a youtube video of one of my favorite songs from his Beatles years.

Leslie Neilsen

One of my favorite film comedians died this weekend: Leslie Nielsen star of such films as Fantastic Planet and The Poseidon Adventure but remembered primarily for his comedic roles in Airplane, Naked Gun and Mr. Magoo died from complications from pneumonia. Here's a link to his obituary from the L. A. Times and some more biographical information from Wikipedia.,0,2787062.story
