Title: Ladies signing the Blues
Weight: 5.0 lbs.
Abstract and cubist oil painting of women singing…but that’s debatable.
You were probably thinking Diana Ross? Not even close .Both women had a little talent but after much serious introspection, neither realized they would ever see the lights of Broadway. Myrna’s baritone was a bit jarring and Gloria’s high notes created such an abrasive mix, many tenets started complaining that their abode sounded like a breeding salon for stray cats. ”Singing the blues” was not just a title of a song but was a tragic reality.
To make a bit of cash they would book at seedy lounges where “Live Music” would give these dives a bit of class. They finally found a bungalow outside Queens that was far enough away as not to disturbe the urban population. The one blessing is that Myrna’s aunt died and having no relatives left , or who would speak to her ,she inherited enough money that they both could live without working indefinitely .Aunt Myrna was their only family who without fail, would invite themselves out for her Birthday. Aunt Myrna, not the impious type, would graciously sit while they played and sang a duo. Thank God she still had some Morphine left. Now they sip on Martinis all day and sing. Both are constantly going into this diatribe about “Practice Makes Perfect”, but after 50 years it’s time to reconsider some fictitious dream and start spending some of that cash.

I am a Landscape Designer and artist that has lived and worked in Houston for 30 years. My primary venue is abstract and cubism. I've taken classes at St.Thomas University as well as studied courses at Glassel School of Art which is part of the MFA Houston.
Art is my life because it's an inclusive attribute of everything happening around us every day.As a landscape designer I have to create gardens that implement compenmentary colors as well as textural balances.On a canvas,I repeat this design concept also.
I have a varied subject matter but nature seems to predominate.I invite everyone to enjoy my gallery and e-mail or phone me directly if you have any questions.My paintings are exactly what you see.
I use original subject matter for all my pieces and mostly work with oils. My prices are affordable so I do have a turnover. My passion is art but designing landscapes is my trade. My art reflects my life and although I do a lot of landscapes,I do paint portraits and other subject matter quite frequently.

Scholarship to University of Oklahoma for my art entries.
I love the feeling that so much of my art is hanging in Houston homes.That's my biggest achievement.
I will be glad to give you references with e-mails of some people who own my art.
