Some of my favorite summer animals.

Southern drinks. Too bad I have never liked tea.

Cat and dog illustrations.

I got my love of art from my very talented and creative mother. She worked as a graphic artist for both Miller Bros. department store and for Blue Cross. She could paint or draw anything – a talent I wish I possessed. The paintings I created in college were…. well, they were terrible. And I had little patience for them since I was doing so poorly. Photography was, and is, my true passion. But with the use of the computer and programs like Illustrator I can at least play around a bit…without the terpentine.

I have noticed that my mother’s favorite painter, Paul Gauguin, http://www.paul-gauguin.net/, and mine, Marc Chagall, http://www.art.com/gallery/id–a60/marc-chagall-posters.htm, are very similar in their styles. As I get older, I have been noticing we are a lot a like.

Ok. Here is another favorite of mine: http://www.lautrec.info/ Maybe one day I can be that creative.
