ROAD TO SUCCESS

The road to success may be paved
with right turns and wrong turns
a selection of detours, copious diversions
along with several dead ends,
it probably has a sprinkling of U-turns
and miles and miles and miles
and miles of effort
So that when you finally reach your goal,
when you eventually achieve your aim
when you are sucessfully adjudged to be
“the best of the best”
Then that success,
like the journey can be very sweet

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

WAIT!

Size Un-framed 10 x 10cm
Size framed 23 x 23cm in a deep frame

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?

REMEMBER ME

Size Un-framed 10 x 10cm
Size framed 20 x 20cm in a deep frame

REMEMBER ME
Did you ever want
to walk up to the ‘nice’ person
who treated you so badly,
way back then?
Show them just what a mistake they made,
what they missed?
Chances are
they would not even remember you,
But I wonder?
What might stir their mind
when you tapped them on the shoulder
and sweetly said
“Remember me?”
I imagine the reply might be “…………Eh…”
While they furiously searched
their memory for clues
and all their bad deeds,
mean moments
and guilty secrets
flash before their minds eye
…..This drawing always makes me smile
when I see it
because one does not have to
become like them
Making them squirm – just for a moment
would be enough
I know I will never do it
but…………………………
it makes me smile

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 HAD IT LAST NIGHT
Contrary to common belief this image is about
a condition a lot of people I know, suffer from
If I had a penny for every time I have heard
“………..I had it last night”
It comes after: Where is my shirt………..
Where is my schoolbook………..
Where is my watch………..
Where is my other shoe………..
and if I did have a penny
for each time I would now be rich
instead of tired of looking!

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

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

Size Un-framed 10.7cm  x 30cm
Size framed 32cm x 45cm in a deep frame

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!
