Hand colored linoleum block prints

     I’ve become an anachronism.  I make occasional forays into the world of art where I thought that I was a contemporary artist but I now think I’m wrong.  I’ve been trying to make those high-brow contemporary stripey plaidey blobby blankey abstractions for quite some time but I just don’t see the point.  I’m still fussing over all of those awful pictorial ideas that I learned about in college so long ago like composition spatial relationships balance contrast color line shape and form.  I’m fairly good at it.  I thought that my work had been caught between the low and the high-brow worlds of art but it keeps getting lower and lower and lower and now it’s just all about junk food.  But I am quite happy with them.  These pictures will certainly make you feel hungry.  But don’t eat the stuff depicted here because it’s bad for you. These all-you-can-eat buffets of gooey buttery sugar-coated still lifes just look really delicious.  Bad but delicious.

      Here are my limited edition hand water-colored linoleum block prints of breakfasts and munchables for all of you marijuana users.  And for those of you who are not.  You know who you are.  We are all familiar with the tendency to make unwise snack and breakfast food choices but we all get to feel guilty about our indulgences.  Being high helps.  These pictures with all of their unhealthful beauty are for all of you.   Please enjoy.
