While walking in a residential area near the Mission Campus of San Francisco’s City College recently, I spotted a dog that came to look out a window of an old Victorian. I felt her “hello.” She had a delightful energy. (I know the dog was a “she” because someone walking by knew her). This is my first drawing of a dog.
I’ve created my first series of photographs featuring animals. Here are examples of what’s in a current show. At first I had titles like: “Us Two at the Golden Gate Bridge,” or “Us Two Building a Nest a La Jolla Beach,” and then I thought how blah that sounds.
There’s portraits in this series too. Instead of putting the cat’s name as the title I came up with slightly quirky titles. I called this cat portrait “I’m Naturally Handsome, I Know.” Do you think it fits?
As you can see, I love creating in a variety of ways: calligraphy, abstract imagery, landscapes, photography, photograms, scanograms, monotypes.
Oops, I left out fashion illustration and feature writing. The list is like a living organism.
