my drawing board

This photo is of a small section of the underside of my drawing board. The strokes of paint and cut marks represent over fifty years of use creating paintings and illustrations. I am going to order  a 20″ high x30 “wide canvas wrap print of this image and then paint over the print using oil paint.

pedestrian painting by John Foster Dyess

This is a painting based on the pedestrian symbol on a street sign. I wanted to symbolize in a graphic image diversity by showing various colored symbols used in pedestrian crossing signs that represents walking away from racism and intolerance. This painting was purchased by a friend several years ago.
I used enamel paint applied with a putty knife and screwdriver on masonite board to create this painting.
This image is  for sale printed on cups,  shirts, phone cases, and many other things and can be purchased at
Thanks for viewing my blog!
