Face Masks

It had to come to this …

Having to endure the lock-down of the pandemic isn’t enough. Every day another story of some huckster trying to take advantage of the situation.

They saying goes, “when you have lemons, make lemonade”. So what is an artist to do? Hiding in the studio is not enough. So, I will join the ne’er-do-wells and offer some of my art on face masks, Yes, you read that right. Pathetic isn’t it? But for just 14 bucks you too can be elegantly and stylishly dressed when braving the cruel world out there. Each! And shipping is extra. No, not a rip-off, mind you this stylish art, not medical protection.

Oh, yes, I should tell you how to get this, most current, bit of art.

That is just as lighthearted, maybe a tad more intentional at times, but I have been at it for years. So here is a collection, not really representative or complete, of some of my favorite cafe art pieces. Continue reading

The Making of a Photoodle

The term “photoodle”, being derived from photo and doodle, implies a somewhat casual, haphazard process of creation. While much of my “cafe art” is carefully planned, a good deal just happens. This is the story of one such photoodle. It really is one of my favorites now. Continue reading
