God must love the common man, he made so many of them.
-Abe Lincoln


  1. I think Abe had a point there. And Jayne, I took your link to tony's and got bogged down by a massive file upload( took me 30 minutes to clear my browser! )

    Too, I'm seeing this work in a couple of different ways...and liking both of them :)

  2. What? Subby, what link, do I need to deleate something? Please advise. -J

  3. Janye, I'm not sure but when I took your link to tony's "Bench" bloggo, I ended up with a frozen screen. His page usually takes a while to load, anyway. But I never had to delete that many browsing files. Don't know where they came from!! I'm re-setting my spam filtre and trying again and will let you know what's up, from there...

  4. the picture drew me in the words kept me here- then I saw the sidebar. Thanks!

  5. Great picture, did you paint it?

    Einstein said some wonderful things. This one made me chuckle.

    I have had the same problem with Bench. Tony left a kind comment on one of my Stonehenge pictures and my computer crashed when I tried to repay the visit. I put it down to YouTube links. My laptop is old and feeble.

  6. Manya, I will do a post for the cause soon.

    Jasmine, Yes, As you know a large part of my work is graphic novel and illustration work. I love to show paintings with words, if there are none originally ... and I believe limiting some shots to details of work is nice for this venue.
    Sorry, TMI!

  7. Fabulous picture and the quotes are, as always, well-chosen. The Einstein one is my particular favourite. I do love visiting your blog : such a pleasure.

  8. I see Ted Kennedy in that picture!

  9. Ah! I love looking at your work here, the colours and textures...
    The quotes resonate as well, especially that from Einstein...Would that things were as simple as they sometimes appear...Have a wonderful weekend!
