Continuing previous images from newspaper

Again, these were taken from color xeroxs. Watercolor on paper, 3x4". From original "Images from the Newspaper" series. Of course, I changed the image quite a bit from the actual newspaper photo. These were done in 2000-2002. I exhibited 100 of these type of drawings in a show in Hollywood sometime in early 2002 I believe.

Newspaper images from previous series

Some images (taken from color xeroxes) of previous newspaper image series. Originals were watercolor on paper, 3x4" 2000-2002

February weather

watercolor on paper, 3x4". I am not gluing the newspaper clipping on the next few months of small watercolors, as I'm working out of sketchbook, and planning on using these for a show.
I had a show of 100 watercolors this size several years ago of images generated from the newspaper and have started a new series of these.
Even though it's cold and rainy (a good thing for LA winter) it is still grapefruit season which make the best margaritas.

korean chop

The beautiful chop of my name in Korean and the ink pot.
Anyone with experience with this, please advise. The ink seems sticky and I don't know what that little scraper thing is for.

I'm loving this rain after weeks of summer weather in january. MS sent me a wonderful chop from Korea where he was directing animation. It is my name in Korean, and all I can recognize is the DF. I am having trouble getting the ink the right consistency. It comes in a little pot and seems sticky. The directions are in Korean, so I'll have to get my neighbors to help me with it. I'll post a picture of the chop later.
