The Queen of the DMV

So, confession time: I never learned how to drive. I way older than a teenager and I just never wanted to drive. I love being a passenger and Uber rocks.

I do need an i.d. thought. Since I never have it out – it expired on my birthday LAST AUGUST so months later – oops I need it and it’s expired. So I go to the DMV and this woman was a total cow to me. I need my birth certificate and more i.d. 

Okay fine. Then she has an issue with how my name went from my maiden name to my name today. We need to show how that change happened. 
I was just standing there staring……. I never had to do this before. 

I went home without an i.d. I am going back with both sets of divorce papers, my social security card, my birth certificate and some bills for that hooker and watch, someone really cool will be working and think I am a total nutcase for bringing all this i.d.

This is a 3×3-inch painting on a little canvas. Ready to hang and no framing necessary. 

At the time of this writing, this piece was available in the eBay store. If you get there and it’s not there, it’s off living life with a happy collector.

Cats of May Series – Behold Stumpy the 3-Legged Cat Original Painting

The Cats of May is a series honoring great cats I’ve known and been owned by. Also the fantastic felines of friends who have been kind enough to tell me their stories and share photos of their great cats.

Today’s cat is STUMPY. Stumpy had an unfortunate encounter with a dog as a kitten and got his front left leg chewed up to the point the leg had to be removed. Along with losing a leg, Stumpy got adopted by my friend into his forever home. Having 3 legs didn’t slow him down one bit!

Size: 3.5 x 5.5 inches painted on a vintage postcard.
Price : SOLD!

If you’d like a cat painting of your own, just ask me about a commission.

I Bring the Party

I bring the party. I think everyone should. It’s much better to be around people that want to celebrate the lives they have rather than moaning about the lives they don’t have.
This is a vintage photo mounted on vintage book papers from a 1950’s sex guide (a really short book! seriously it’s like 50 pages) and mounted it on a 3×5 canvas.

She Never Minded He Looked Like an Elephant

True love sees past all our dents and dings as humans. We see the inner person we love not what’s on the outside.
I am lucky to have found that in this life and so did the two people in this improved photo. She never minded he looked like an elephant, sprayed water all over the bathroom with  his truck on Saturday night bath night and left peanut shells in the bed, she loved who he was and found all that stuff totally endearing. #marriage

Let’s Play Said the Fish to the Mermaid

This started as a blob of pink paint on a piece of watercolor paper. I found it after it dried. So i drew a circle around it, then I decided it was a pink pearl that a little fishy was holding in his fish teeth.
And then I thought, wouldn’t it be great if the pearl belonged to his best friend, a mermaid?
I love painting mermaids, especially drawing the scales on the tail – that is super fun to me (yeah I know, I’m weird).
I think it was also inspired because the fish tank on the second floor leaked and my side of the bed (of course) is wet – I think I”ll have to camp out on the couch in the living room tonight until it’s dry.

This will make a great addition to your collection of our art – bid now!

Red Ribbon Guy


I wanted to do something different with this guy.
He had the usual hair and the usual suit and the usual expression you see over and over and over in vintage photos (yes i know why people rarely smiled in these old photos ).
And so I wanted to make him special, unique even.
Everyone deserves that.
So i started with some amazing blonde hair then it needed something…. a hat? No…. a RIBBON.
And here you have Stanley with his amazing hair with this amazing ribbon.
He will be the envy of all your other art on your walls.

Size : 6.5-inches by 4.25-inches
Ink, watercolor on antique photo from early 1900s
