Accordion Guy

New pen nib--no ink droppings (ugh--that sounds like bird droppings). I wanted to post something new before I started commenting on people's fleeting pictures, because I really don't like my fleeting picture.

But I figure that as long as I'm learning something (which I am), then it's all good.


  1. I love your fleeting picture. Maybe because death is closer than I want it. But I love it. I love the baby especially by the coffin. Life keeps going on.

    Of course you would worry about these things. To me there was not a trivial worry in the bunch.

    Love the name of the college, it almost sounds like a joke.

    Love Renee xoxo

  2. You work really is quite wonderful. I love pen and Ink. The rollings bands of light behind the player make me think of the music coming out of his accordion.

    When I was a kid, I wanted to play piano. My mom said if I learned accordion, she would invest in a piano. I lasted through one lesson. The accordion is not a kid thing.

    Thanks for visiting Prattle. Isn't the name "coreopsis" so much fun to say! It has a lovely lilt to it.

  3. I very much enjoyed your art--and envy you your talent.

    I visited because I liked your comment on Renee's blog, and because you and I both have plant names.

  4. this is another cool style which is different from the latest one you did!! I love it too!! Some moods linger in the drawing... which has engaged me totally.

  5. Wow.
    This is beautiful. I especially love the folds in the accordion and the tones are really great!

  6. Awesome! Ballpoint pen is great ain't it? It really makes you commit. Looking at your work, I think you'd really like printmaking especially intaglio work. You have a great sense of pattern and value balance.

  7. Oh I do indeed love printmaking. And I love looking at prints. I haven't done it in years, though. Someday....when the kids are out of college (my oldest son starts in the fall). Wow--I'd never even considered this, but now I'm really excited.
