This is for my Uncle Billy. He’s not feeling too great so I’m sending it to him.
Small gouache and graphite on arches paper
Digging through my old stuff, and thought this was nice:
I have a bunch of birds that hang out in the trees outside my studio window. I got my good camera geared up with a zoom lens and I try to take photos when I see them. Still getting used to the camera, so expect improvements over time. Here’s the latest:
Took some picks for my sister of old stuff I did. Here are a couple I forgot about.

Great show. Loved the sax, and seeing it live made me realize how hard it is to pull off solos like they did in the 80s. Not enough people there, which is a shame. We’re lucky they keep coming back and should support one of the most notable, iconic sounds out of that era.
