The way the two standing on this side of the pool table are looking off to the side tells a real story too - must be a real babe standing just out of the picture, lol!

when i went to the tute..my friend Charles and i use to go to a bar that had an upper balcony and sit, while we had a drink we would sketch the people below..life as an artist..one day you will notice just noses....since this one scanned..i am going to try another you might like..my uncle asked me to draw this for him...first thing he ever asked..first time he showed any interest in my talent..he asks me to draw cat crap in an ashtray and a bunch of people standing around with pacifiers in their mouths..i'll find it now..i will spare you the first...Charles is out there in the world somewhere and i don't know where..last gallery card was a decade ago..he was a wonderful young male artist...a good friend

The kittens are sweet, Are the adults with the pacies trying to kick the habit?

for shreadhead

hnow how do you think your dog would look like? It be worth it just to see their face. im so bad...life is too short for people like that
the pacifier people aren't trying to kick the habit..my uncle is the typical reformed smoker judging all those that haven't quit...thus the cat crap in the ashtray..i drew it for him too kitty litter traces right along with the ashes and vapors..made it a cut glass ashtray too did it all computer

He didn't tell me how to put the dogs..just do a bar scene..this was my thinking of what they would be doing...like i see people everywhere..mary and the grocery line..the clerk and a woman with horrible children was what inspired that..the man that ordered the painting wanted to print it on t-shirts with his kennel name and have them for sale at the shows. i wanted one and told him i would pay for it, but after a couple unaswered e-mails i gave up. Don't know if they used it or not, they paid a lot for it tho so that is the end of my connection with the painting.ohhhh if you mean my uncle..he is a strange bird..genius and antisocial...very judgemental..has many pantents out on motor things....mechanical genius.

i consider myself blessed with that and my piano..i need to get back to doing what i am meant to do..i tend to let lots of things interfere...need to have a schedule and stick to it. I wanted to start a daily journal because so many things go thru my head and never touch paper..like Vic and Renee's dog swing dancing..or pack on wheels..it was my new years resolution and i have yet to start. Tomorrow right?
