Americana

ONE DAY AT A TIME

==================

I don't claim to be an artist but I do like to draw. I do a lot of it now that I am retired. I am pretty much home bound and drawing is relaxing for me. I do all of my drawing with a mechanical pencil loaded with 2B leads. PLAIN AND SIMPLE - THAT IS MY WAY. 

At last count, I had almost 400 sketches stashed away in my digital achieves. Some good, some bad, most about average

- all done by me. I typically turn out 2 or 3 new sketches every day. 

I will refresh this page often with new drawings.

You can see more of my artwork in my Zazzle and CafePress shops -  My Safe Place and Drawer of Pictures.

These are commercial sites but you don't have to buy anything to look around.

I grew up in poor circumstances. Most of the people I knew subsisted on a simple diet. Biscuits and gravy and beans and cornbread were at the top of the list.

This depicts a hobo making soup over an open fire back in the days of the Great Depression. It could very well be a homeless person today.  
Despite the hard times, the men in the hobo jungle banded together to help each other every way they could. They were a jovial and happy bunch and always had something to laugh about.

THE SLAVE AUCTIONA white planter bids on a black slave on the block at a slave auction.  
The face of despair and hope. Dedicated to the people from the Great Depression period and their descendants. Poor people who had nothing. My father and mother were among them. They worked hard for a roof over their heads, basic groceries and the bare essentials. They got a little cash occasionally but it was not regular wages. Dad ran the hands on a cattle ranch and Mom did the cooking for all of them. They considered themselves to be very lucky. They had a job, they had shelter, they had food. Many of their friends were not as fortunate and they helped them when they could. So it was - all across America. The people made do with very little and they survived. Despite the hard times, they knew things would get better and they never gave up hope. There are not many of them left but most of us have heard stories about it.
