My "GOLDEN" years have suddenly come upon me. I've spent my working life dedicated to helping individuals with disabilities. It was rewarding but difficult work. With a loss of funding I find myself with time for me for the first time I can remember! So now I'm doing what I used to refer to as playing!
I was one of the first street artists in San Francisco in the early 70's. Not the street vender type, I didn't have a license. The only licenses we had was high speed sprinting to avoid an unwanted ride in a paddy wagon.
I then went on to pottery with a slant toward the ancient Chinese porcelain works and glazes. After having to make my move to the East Coast with my young family, I worked in watercolors, then learned the art of antique clothing restoration, vintage doll restoration, original porcelain dolls, and eventually a lot of pencil drawings that came to me as earthly mystic beings that somehow look much like a rare photo I have of myself.
If you've never seen my works it is simply because I never put myself out there, so to speak, with other than my close friends, the exception being my pottery.
I've dabbled in so many art forms I have named only a few. Now "Golden" and quite silver haired I figure I have nothing to lose but the time on my hands. Now I can return to what I do best and enjoy most. Does anyone know of a good swing set? That’s a great way to play also.
I hope you find my playing fun also,
