I played around with this photo of my old mate Ken, using my fav. graphics program – Corel Painter.

We were into accoustic folk music – James Taylor, CSN and the like, from that era. (seriously dating myself here :)) Then arthritis and emigration intervened :(

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.

    Thanks people. Oddpixels much as I would like to take credit for drawing this :) I must decline. I played with the original photo – took out the background and then painted loosely over the whole thing with my digital paintbrushes. I wanted to keep it fluid to suggest flowing melody and the colours to express the mood of the music.

    hmmmm. we were buddies, but not that close Mitrm. :) Actually we never played any Elvis stuff. He was probably playing James Taylor’s “Frozen Man”
