Today, May 16th, is my 66th Birthday. My wife was raised just 2 blocks from Route 66 so I consider it a special birthday. It’s a strange feeling and everything that’s said about getting old, I agree with. Not for wimps and I admit I am a bit wimpy. Pam would probably say I’m a lot wimpy. (I am!)
The NEW ORLEANS OYSTER EATING CLUB is probably my last major pencil drawing. After I fell and broke my back last summer I developed very painful muscle spasms and pencil drawings make it much worse because of the pressure needed to get the desired effect. I am happy to tell you I can still paint, painting is gentle. I have many near finished works that I am inspired to complete. I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your support over the last 25 years and hope you’ll continue to do so. Pam, Julian and I are truly grateful.
One thing I have never been is lazy and I have many drawings I’ve done over the past 25 years. We’ll be showcasing them in the near future. I just uncovered an early drawing, “Hot Dog Charlie” that I am getting scanned so we’ll have prints and t-shirts soon. Thank you again, Jamie
