A Time To Weep, and a Time To Laugh. 25.June 2012. Ink on Acid free card.
” To everything there is a season……” and that is what this is about- ‘that there is nothing new
under the sun’, so it is said. The drawing is based on the book Ecclesiastes(c. 935 BCE), Chapter 3 vs 1-8.
An interesting biblical book, speaking of ‘The Son Of David’s thoughts about life. It is an interesting
work that even talks about the timing in the Heavens. Astrology and Astronomy and
Religion were once part of the same discipline.

Here is a very symbolic drawing, ‘by the light of the silvery Intuition’.

When someone comes to visit, I treat them like they are special.
A special person inspired my drawing this.

Sometimes the most simple line drawings can be quite simple in their effect on us,
lending itself to a visual and a feeling, that is easy, and comfortable.

Design Course, TAFE College, Kingswood.
Two composite drawings in a very simply drawn manner.
Eileen’s Reception. Ink on card. June 2007.
I was working as a Temp for a couple of months at the not too far away
Department of Education, where I met some really lovely people.
Eileen was my boss, and though she ran the reception area more efficiently than bleach,
she was really lovely- especially with her Irish accent…My God! Just heavenly!
Elephant on The Piano. Ink on acid free card. May 2009
By the title, one would expect an elephant playing a piano. How absurd! 🙂
It was actually a beautifully decorated resin vase that became broken through a kitten
climbing onto my piano, and shoving it off in the excitement. 🙁
The symbol of the crocodile hanging onto the side of a Wheel Of Fortune, in a stellar atmosphere, has its
own Metaphysical meaning.
Picking Flowers. Ink on architectural paper. 11th April, 2008
There is something beautiful about the sheen of the paper and the black of the ink
that makes the drawing light up when viewed.
Ink on acid-free card. 2008
This is about a UK artist friend of mine who, in the 1970’s rallied all over England for an anti drugs campaign.
The campaign was highly successful , reducing the drug trafficking up to 70 percent. Not without
terrible gang vindication. Tony was shot twice, and in this drawing shows him being shot.
Many years on, artist Tony Savages still lives to tell his gruesome and heroic tale.
Bounty. Ink on paper. 2007
Another play with positive and negative spacing.
Doodling or Trance Art, is a great way to come up with interesting images of the heart and mind.
At the time I was reading about the Philadelphia Experiment, so some pretty weird
stuff subconsciously, came out in the drawing.
