 Two Tree Spirits looking very refreshed in their swamp.

Pen and Ink with a watercolor wash
This piece is called "The Lovers." Created to go along with the tree and rock illustrations that are now hanging up at the Root Cafe in Lakewood Ohio. Thanks to my cousin Marie, who is on a quest to get me noticed. She works in marketing and promotions. She has worked with a lot of artists along the way. She seems to like us quirky artist types. Marie has taken it upon herself to represent me.

Marie and I kind of have a standing joke about my "art crap." As she was growing up, here and there I would give her one of my pieces. I once drew her a picture of Jim Thome when he was with the Cleveland Indians back in the early 90's. At some point along the way I again gave her something, and she said "Oh I have a shelf with all your art crap on it" Eitherway it stuck and we still laugh about it. So here she is 20 years later promoting my "art crap!"

I just want to say a big thanks to you Marie, and Gary for getting my stuff up at the cafe~You guys are the BEST!!!  Also Happy Birthday!
