Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

At the top of this entry, you’ll find a piece entitled “Moon Set” by Barb Stork. She’s my sister-in-law, and a fantastic fine artist as well. This is what she had to say about the piece:

“This piece is special because it brings up a happy memory. I did this piece last summer when I was on crutches due to an ankle injury. With [my husband] Jim’s help I was able to crutch out to the prairie at Grant Park and set up a chair to paint. Jim gave me a hard time because it took us so long to get to that point. (He was cracking me up as usual which slowed us down even more). He then took Patches [our dog] on an extra long walk so I could complete the painting.”

Now, as for my work, ah yes, the Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry (yes, I’ve linked to my pathetic page) – I had almost forgotten that I had created a portfolio there, too. The problem is, my pieces are nowhere near as good as Barb’s. Please keep in mind that my drawings and paintings posted there are over 10 years old, and when I look at them, it’s almost like I’m looking at another artist’s work.

I am, however, fond of Spring Day (represented below). I wish I had the original or had made a photocopy.

Alas! I think what I dislike the most is the reproduction quality of my pieces (and don’t even ask me to go into the reprehensibile execution).

If you visit the registry in the future, please disregard my page and visit Barb’s. At least there, you’ll see some well-executed paintings.
