This is a rather fatalistic tarot card.

The man is tied up and immobilized. 
The more we struggle against our circumstances, the worse they will get.

I did another song.
The first 15 seconds or so I wasn't sure where it was going but then it found itself!

Here's another song. It's about a man in Hell waiting for his lover to die.

   This is a painting of a juvenile improvised song that my daughter wrote the lyrics for. It was really fun to perform and we were able to use up the rest of the helium. I do a nifty guitar solo! I'm not a 'musician'; I'm just having fun improvising with the kids.
   I'm not sure how to post the link to Youtube, but if you are interested, you can find me on Facebook where I have it posted. It's really dumb so don't have high expectations.
   My kids love it and won't stop singing it, (I kind of wish they would!).

Sketchbook page:


There's a certain donut shop chain that runs this contest that has my son and me picking up the discarded cups that are littered everywhere so we can "roll up the rim."

When I was painting Jesus cards, this card was my greatest achievement because I painted myself as Saint Michael.
I was actually just joking but nobody seemed to notice and they just printed the cards.
Right now somewhere on this planet there are missionaries giving out pictures of me killing a demon for the Lord!

When our kids were little every Canadian mother seemed to have this book called the Canadian Medical Association's Complete Book of Mother & Baby Care. The face on the drawing is based on one of the women in the book. I love her face.

    One of the more famous oral teachings attributed to Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peschischa goes as follows:
    Everyone should have a note in each pocket, so that he or she can reach into the one of them, depending on the need. When feeling lowly and discouraged, one should reach into the right pocket for the words, "it was for my sake, the universe was created."
    When feeling selfish and arrogant one should reach into the left pocket, and find the words: "I am but dust and ashes."

Just Waiting To Meet Her

    Yesterday while sitting in a doughnut shop I suddenly remembered that I promised my pregnant cousin I would do some in-utero baby paintings so I quickly did this relying on guesswork. You can imagine my shock when I did a proper image search and found out what it really looks like. They don't have pillows or calendars and they certainly aren't tattooed yet!

The first day my boy was at home.

He just stared at me the whole time that I drew him. Now he's just days away from being a ten year old.
