"Wednesday Drawing Group," by Alicia Tredway

This was a very active drawing group which happened every Wednesday in Ralphie's studio.  After Frank passed away the drawing group gradually stopped.  June 27th Kurt Volckmar passed away. 
Fred in the hills who was a dj for kmud for many years is alive and well.   I don't think I ever knew his last name.  So I guess this is kind of a memorial painting now but I did when all were living.

The cat that came back

"Tummy Rub" by Andrew Daniel
Oil on wood 6" x 10"
Available from the artist

I painted three paintings for the Humcats fund raiser. Two were angry cats, and then there was this adorable one. Apparently there is more appetite for irritated cats then cuddly ones. I don't have a theory for this, but it was a fun surprise to see that this was the cat that came back!

"Devon's Dream of Death" by Andrew Daniel

"Devon's Dream of Death" by Andrew Daniel
20" x 16" Oil on canvas
Available from the artist

I painted this during the drop in figure group at Eureka Studio Arts. I couldn't relate to the pose so I started goofing around, putting the skeleton in the background. It made me laugh, that's all that I can say. I'm not proud.
