Mr. Yellowstripes diptych. Acrylic on deep wrapped canvases, each 4" x 12", private collection. Last year happened to see an amazing pottery vase from the 60's (Scandanavian maybe?) with stick-like ladies and animals painted on it. Then Mr. Yellowstripes sort of drew himself out on these canvases last week--so I know (sort of) where he came from. I adopted a color scheme I found in a book of mid-century posters.

Couple of Eggman paintings. Both acrylic on board. As a kid I was fanatic about drawing little eggmen--sometimes giant sheets of paper filled with them-- making war, riding rides (and falling out of the rollercoaster) at the amusement park, being terrorized by monsters, etc. They seem to need attention again.

A prelim from my sketchbook that turned into a couple of acrylics. The one with the clock is Cooking Lunch, and it's 3" x 4 1/2" and painted on a wood panel. The other is 6" x 12", painted on canvas.
