Decided to try an ocean painting on the smooth side of Canson paper

Pastel on Canson paper, 9x12.


Did a charcoal sketch today to honor Jim Gordon and his music. I cared about him.



The world will never see another drummer with his touch and style. Eric Clapton said he was his best drummer.

And he was a kind man. He wrote back to a silly fan who wrote him while he was at CMF.

I corresponded with him for a time. I loved him.

RIP sweet brilliant drummer boy. Hope to hear you play in heaven some day.


😭😭😭🙏 He was a kind and gentle man, apart from the terrible mental illness. He wrote me back

When I sent him a letter while he was in CMF.

He took the time and effort to write back to a very silly fan.

I wrote that fans should have been calling HIM god, not Eric Clapton, because it was his drumming that really was what made the music so amazing.

That comment was what he was referencing in this letter.

RIP Jim. Thank you for the great music and for being so incredibly kind to this very silly nobody fan of yours.

Let me try again, maybe this will work.

Thank you so much!!!❤️ actually....

I didn’t do a duplicate today, but did a riff on the original painting, changing some things….was fun!

Did a pastel painting of a waterfall.


Thank you to anyone who looks at this. Very grateful for any critiques.

I just keep playing with my soft pastels, trying to learn and get better.

Today is National Hug an economist day apparently

So I sent a virtual hug to Robert Reich because I think he is awesome and fighting hard for all of us.

I am so sorry for your loss and the grief that never ends.

You must have such a big heart, to hold so much grief.

Grief steps in to fill the space created by love that can no longer be expressed.

Thank you so much!❤️ I put all my heart into it, trying to honor him. 🙏

Thank you so much! ❤️ I was so afraid it wouldn't be good enough

For him, to honor his memory.

I did the best I could though.

I hope when he looks down from heaven he will see the outpouring of love and grief from all us fans and know what his music meant to all of us.

I think of him young and healthy now, maybe sailing in the “Mayan” or spending time with his Mom and brother, or hugging his former girlfriend Christine Hinton.

I think of him creating new music in heaven, because whether on earth or in heaven, he was always going to be all about that music.
