Freedom

This drawing was done during the time of change in Eastern Europe.
The shell represents repression or communism
When it breaks down, the resultant outpouring of people,
Their attempts to stabilise what is left of their nation by using the broken pieces of shell,
which represent what’s left of administrative and social structures
While helping each other out of the shell some organise, some work, some just enjoy
They then go along to the next nation and start breaking it’s shell
(Apartheid, South Africa 1994?)
The ladder represents the formation of organisations such as Solidarity
and there are even two UN observers, bottom left

and take that step

WAIT!

WAIT!
No language barrier, no age barrier
Probably the most commonly used
piece of sign language is:
A hand held up and with a tilt of the head
to summon caution
It always works
They stop
But to make someone continue to stop
and to wait
that is an other matter…….
Waiting is not
one of man’s all time strengths
Yet how many regrets would never live………..
How many ‘If only’s’
would not be spoken?

ONLY FOOLS RUSH IN

ONLY FOOLS RUSH IN
‘Only fools rush in’ but is it also true that
‘He who dares wins’
Sometimes I wish
that whoever wrote all these adages
would also have written:
‘The book of all answers’
There is a big difference between a fool
and a hero
Perhaps this person
has the right idea though
Do it – but – do it slowly, carefully

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND
Not knowing is hard
Confusion is difficult
But let, I do not understand, be a question
Because then when you ask it,
you may learn to understand

DO NOT GIVE UP
Life is a journey not a destination
Someone said
The darkest hour is just before dawn
and we have all been awake at dawn, sometime
But every tide does turn and
there is light at the end of the tunnel
Why would someone bother
to write all these clichés?
Remember you are not the first
You will not be the last
No matter how small or
how big your personal mountain is
Do not give up
Climb it

LADDER OF SUCCESS

Framed 475.00
Original signed pen and ink drawing
on heavy cartridge paper
2004
Size Un-framed 10.7cm  x 30cm
Size framed 32cm x 45cm in a deep frame

with printed words alongside

Ladder of success
The route to success is not always
a series of rungs on a ladder
tried and tested and perfectly spaced
for easy climbing!
You may have to spend quite some time
placing it in the right position
Carrying it from one level to the next
and even then you may find
some rungs are broken and
others are completely missing!
Eventually you will probably
have to leave it behind altogether
for newer more advanced
methods of upward motion
In fact
When you do succeed
you can rest assured
you will have earned it!

‘Suit & Tie’ or tracksuit!

Targets, Timetables,
Productivity, Pay rises or freezes,

No more Work Colleagues,
Customers, Clients or
anybody else who is always right!!

What you choose to put in it
is totally up to you!

IF AT FIRST

on heavy cartridge paper
2004
Size Un-framed 10.7 x 30cm
Size framed 23 x 33cm in a deep frame

IF AT FIRST
It may take a while
It may take your whole life
But I do believe
There is nothing you can not do
if you really want to
and anyway – If everyone gave up
after trying something only once
where would we be?
If at first you don’t succeed, try,
try again!

STRESS

Framed 475.00
Original signed pen and ink drawing
on heavy cartridge paper
2004
Size Un-framed 10.7 x 30cm
Size framed 23 x 33cm in a deep  frame
Set between 2 sheets of glass
with printed words behind

STRESS
If the high pressure
of demands on you
produce a storm instead of results
and if the forecast is:
More of the same
It is time to Chill out
Stress can rule your life
but only if you let it
Let your brain relax – read a book
listen to music – walk the dog
play golf – dig the garden
run till you tire – go fly a kite
do absolutely anything
or nothing at all!
whatever it takes to calm the storm

…..and the Sun will shine!

….and you will manage
whatever it is you have to do
much better – much faster
than when you had to fight against stress

DADDY
Children sometimes have a simple way
of looking at a problem…
They accept it
and get on with the fun part of living
Perhaps
if some adults were to re-learn that skill
Life would sometimes be
just a little easier
