12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Finished Painting

♪Now all them’s colors have been finalized

The background and them figures with little eyes

Embellishments such as tv’s, bowls and such

Some’s important, some’s don’t matter much ♪


♪There’s a lesson contained in this painting

My words I sing, not to keep you waiting

Check that stamped date before you buy

The odor emitted might just make you cry♪



Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫


The final painting of the 12 + 12 Project

Next Monday: The start of the ‘The Journey to Ukazoo Book’ Project.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 30

Singer on a Stick

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 30-Holiday Intermission


It is my intent, with the Holidays and illness behind me, that next week I will post the “in-progress” center section with “Jack”. Until then I offer this last “Holiday Intermission”.

This weeks’ posted image, is another very simple drawing. In 2005, after a several year pause, I found a number of ‘doodles’ in my sketch books that renewed my interest and during a flurry of activity, from 2005 to 2008, some of these completed images were extremely simple in line and color. This renewed interest didn’t end with 2008, but I then settled in and resolved that I would no longer allow any extended pauses to interrupt my inherent need to continue creating art.


Entitled “Singer on a Stick”, this 8” x 10”, Color Pencil and Watercolor on paper, was finished July, 2006.


The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, Monday, January 12; “Holiday Intermission”.

Monday, January 19: “Jack” Center of Painting Progress Post.
