    Oak Tree

    !!!!! Why? Just why? Why would you draw something so lovely & so awesome? I can't speak for you, but I can say this: trees can be wonderful & can represent so much: life itself, perseverance, steadfastness, beauty, even shelter (for birds), etc. 100% true: if I were a person w/ money, I would either commission you to paint or draw me a tree - or I would buy one that you've already done! I'm already calling these works of yours (in my mind) 'The Tree Series.' Or 'Chris: The Tree Series.'

    Mandela - mandala

    Speaking of kaleidoscopes, today, on the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon's passing, here's 1 of the most famous references to a kaleidoscope in all of music-lyrics history: "Somebody calls you. You answer quite slowly. A girl with kaleidoscope eyes."

    Mandela - mandala

    I can see that this is a mandala. An interesting play on words. It's reminding me now of a kaleidoscope. I hope it's ok for me to say that the 1st time I saw it as a small image, it reminded me of a pizza! : )
  8. Wow. I appreciate multi-colored drawings of yours and monochrome ones. But in this one, I especially appreciate that the 1 spot of color is the red mark on the back of the bird's head. Artistic. Beautiful lyric to accompany the drawing, too. : )

    A Memory

    Heartwrenching. Hmmm...will she ever reach him? Maybe if she gets a little more limber. But should she have to get acrobatic - or should he meet her halfway? Maybe if he opens his mind a bit to explore the edge of his thoughts at least a bit more - & opens his heart more & listens to his heart more.
  10. Wow. Beautiful. Why shouldn't someone commission you to paint that on the side of a building? (Maybe painting murals on sides of buildings is an art in itself.) There's certainly at least 1 Robert Frost poem that would be happy to accompany this drawing of yours! (Probably more than 1.)

    My Owl Drawing

    I've noticed a theme in your photography and drawings that has to do with trees - which is totally cool. I especially like the owl drawing (the entire drawing).

    My Owl Drawing

    Chris, I find it almost disturbing that I didn't know u were so artistically talented! The moon in the sky in your owl drawing looks like a black pearl on a shell. I'm thinking u meant to do that. And if u didn't, then maybe it was subconscious - & just go with it! Did u notice that your tree drawing is in the 'featured' gallery? As it should be! : )

  15. Bono is an Awesome human I Love - but he's not God & he wouldn't want to be called that.

    Grooms Cake

    I didn't even mention how creative that was. Definitely groom-cake-worthy!

    Grooms Cake

    Sweet! (Including literally. I'll bet it was delicious.) And 100% awesome, too. : )

  19. Anjana, these images w/captions that you create can be so fun & delightful. I'm always interested to see what you come up w/next. I think it shows you're such a dedicated U2 fan. Uh...did I say U2? Uh...I mean Larry. A dedicated Larry-of-U2 fan.
