Today's tree


Old lightening rod in a cornfield, St Paul Mo.

To celebrate my new commition. . .


I will be doing some more cartoons for a children's book again. At least the early sketch's, but maybe the finished ones as well.

So my tree today is a cartoon tree.

Here is a painting I am working on right now


Real happy with most of it, but something is bothering me about the stone wall.

Any thoughts?

Today's tree - St Paul Mo farm.


This old store in


Old Monroe Mo. served the community as a store from 1885 to at least 1995.

Then the Highway Dept. chose to by pass Old Monroe basically killing local commerce.

Sad, that after so many years we still don't see what really makes things important.

Today's tree


Monday's


From now on whenever I say, "I was trying something different.", it usually means I don't like it.

I was trying something different. Although I do like the shadow.

Sat. and Sunday's.


I like Sat. It almost looks like you can tell which direction the wind has been blowing for the last hundred years. It was from an old post card.

Todays tree


Pencil was real heavy today. Oh, well. . . got 'er done.

Replenished my soul.













At least a little bit. Helped a little on the reconstruction of Ft. Zumwalt in Ofallon last night.

Worked a couple hours on closing in the gable ends.

Here are a couple pictures before my help, and I will get some of the gable ends when I get back over there. It was near dark when we finished.
