A jazz musician’s art for sale

It’s been a minute since I’ve written anything on my blog. So my readers and followers (are any of ya still with me?) I thank you for sticking around even though I realize I have not posted in nearly a year.

But what a year it’s been. First, my professional reporting/journalism career is a bit more lucrative than blogging, which thus far has paid me $0 per year, so therefore I have spent far more time writing to get paid, which is a positive development.

Then, there’s chasing around the pursuits of my three very creative artistic young adult children.

Which brings me to the purpose of this post.

My middle child in a few day’s time will move from Cincinnati, Ohio to Portland, Oregon. He is an enterprising jazz guitarist, arranger, lyricist and sound mixer who also has delved into the art world.

Can I share a mom memory?

Okay, thanks.

Portrait of the young artist” Nathan has been drawing as long as I can remember. First, it was pencil drawings of loop-the-loop roller coasters. Then, complex pencil drawings of baseball stadiums filled with fans’ faces. As if in a trance, he’d sit for hours bringing these worlds and faces into existence.

In keeping with the faces motif, my son has emerged as an award-winning artist. He has a number of paintings for sale at his Cosmic Chaos Etsy shop. And the choicest ones are now in my basement in Michigan.

So, if you are interested, check out the following for sale. And Zoom in. I’m not going to explain them. The more you look, the more you will see:
