My Dad’s ability to draw is second only to his ability to multitask. He drew this during my sister’s boisterous 21st birthday party. There was sangria, music, hockey and basketball, tons of food, everyone shouting over one another. Dad being the richly introspective soul that he is took in all that noise and channeled into this gorgeous drawing. I have a feeling a busboy and a waitress were fighting over who got to take it home!

Table Doodle
This is a quick doodle I did on the paper table cloth ( isn’t that a contradiction - paper cloth ) at Pizza Rock while celebrating my daughter’s birthday. I always wonder if someone keeps these or if they throw them out without looking. One will never know.

First tumblr post from my Dad!

I have been drawing pretty much all of my life, but never really took it seriously until recently.  In the past, most of my time was spent working.  I am an engineer by education and spent a great deal of time in factories doing industrial automation.  It is a job which demands long hours and a lot of travel.  Now I have reached a point where my life has settled down and I have, for the most part, a job which is an eight hour a day job.  My job requires a great number of meetings which at times can be a bit mind numbing.  So I started to draw again.  At first it was mostly doodles in meetings which were pretty simple drawings.  I was mostly drawing trees.  My first trees were very symmetrical and looked a lot like any grade school kid might draw, but eventually they started to kind of take on a life of their own and have become a bit more complex. 

I do my art pretty much for me (to keep my sanity more than anything), and was surprised when people started telling me I needed to display it.  Currently I have about 16 drawings on display at United Coffee in Sacramento, California.  This a wonderful place to get a great cup of coffee and the owner, Tiffany, twisted my arm and forced me out of my comfort zone.  I am pretty glad she did.

Now, my kids are making me blog.  Hopefully, what I have to share will be appealing to other people.  The tree above was drawn about a year and a half ago and the one directly below about a year ago.  You can see the difference a little time and practice can make.
