LIFE IS AMAZING
In this drawing the first archway is creation
a new baby is born
The Free Personal Choice Umbrella
is to allow parents to choose
what they teach their child
the next four archers represent
what a child learns while growing up:–
Morals and Manners
Religion or way of life
Formal Education
Survival skills
The changing weather conditions
represent the trials and tribulations
of living
The ‘Parents letting go area’
is next and then……..
The ‘Self Sufficient’ Stamp
proves readiness to go on alone
Where the platform stops
is our place in ‘Life’
What is an amazing is
that each of us is unique,
each one of us is special and
there is a place in ‘Life’
for every one of us
The Stork Special Bus which
brought our parents now returns them
to their own place in ‘Life’
and we start the adventure
that is our ‘Life’………………….amazing!©

You climb into one of the cannons
You get shot across the ravine
and hope to fly straight through
“The Opening”
which represents “Success”
On the other side
are all your dreams and aspirations
You may be lucky first time
but if you fail
you go splat against the rock face!
And fall down to the ground
Now
If you really want to succeed
you pick yourself up
and try again and again and again……….
Until with enough practice
you will achieve your goal
Practice does make perfect!

ONE MOMENT IN TIME

SALE
Framed 1400.00
Original signed pen and ink drawing
on heavy cartridge paper
2001
Size Un-framed 51 x 47cm
Size framed 59.5 x 56cm in a white frame

If Mankind is all people who ever existed
Then this drawing is meant to be a cross section thru’ mankind
at One Moment in Time

The Map has three parts
The Outside Edge – The Middle – The Inside Edge 

The Outside Edge – is made up of people
who have made a difference to our Physical world
For example – Someone – at one moment in time must have been
the first to make Fire and
there WAS a day when the first wheel turned
In our own era the atom was split and
Telecommunications have reached such a level of sophistication
that the vast pool of mankind’s knowledge
is now readily available to all people everywhere

The Middle
Is made up of those millions of us who exist and only add
our unique personal experiences to the knowledge

The Inside Edge
Is made up of those who shape our Psychic world:-
What we believe – what we like – what makes us happy or afraid
Here the contributors include:-
Religious Leaders – Great Thinkers – Writers – Artists – Muscisians

My Grandmother was alive before the first telephone was brought to her villiage
she died in the spring of 2000 having seen monumental changes
both in what we believe to be truth
and what we can do with the physical knowledge we have gained
This map is to remind us that if you take
the development of mankind as a series of steps
Then the difference between mankind’s first ever step
and where we are today
Is so immense that what is yet to come is……………………….?

NEW MILLENNIUM

SALE
Framed 1300.00
Original signed pen and ink drawing
on heavy cartridge paper
1999
Size Un-framed 62 x 31.5cm
Size framed 85 x 40cm in a white frame

NEW MILLENNIUM
There are two types of people represented in this drawing – Contestants and Spectators
Contestants are those who have set themselves goals for the future
and are willing to fight for a place at the forefront of progress towards mankind’s happiness
whether as a fulfiled individual or one who improves the happiness of others
hopefully both – I personally am eternally grateful to both the inventor s of the dishwasher,
Chefs in general and often wonder what we all did before the mobile telephone?
You may have to sacrifice a lot but the rewards are great!!
Spectators are those who, while actively encouraging the progress of the Contestants
and benefiting from their achievements, are themselves not adding to the progress of mankind
in it’s search for fulfilment either – personally or at work –
They enjoy the results to the full and feel the satisfaction of supporting a a winner and anyway
they will probably, at some time in the future, become a contestant.
Can you imagine how many people have put off difficult decisions
hard options and long overdue changes to their lives waiting for the “Right Time”
That is why there will always be more spectators than Contestants
The Life of a Spectator can be very nice indeed!!!
At this moment in time, how many people intend to give up smoking
go on a diet or set course into innovative and exciting business ventures
some of which haven’t even been thought of yet?
The setting is set – the plans are made
and if the new millennium is even a fraction of what we hope it will be
Then this new millennium will be great………………
Let the new millennium begin

Size framed 48 x 13.5cm in a white frame

Life is not a rehearsal
You can get thru life as if it were a driving lesson
following the Rules of the Road to the letter
never crossing the white line and
probably survive to be a great old age
but what if you reached the end
only to look back and wish: If only……..
Each day only comes once
enjoy it to the full,
you will never get the chance again!!!
It may not be necessary to quit your job
sell all your belongings
and go swim with the dolphins
on a sun baked beach
but why not do something
you have never done before
It does not have to be cartwheels

a hop and a skip will do
………………….to start with

History is written as we live it
Slow steady progress inevitably inexorably
takes each of us forward
But sometimes…….
When we reach for something much higher
When we stretch our resolve even further
When we push past previous limits……
to beyond – just sometimes….
It is possible to exceed all expectations…… –
– to realise our very dreams

IF I CAN DREAM
As I stood in a long queue at the bus stop,
in the cold and the wind and the rain
I vowed always to remember
what it felt like as sometimes
several full busses passed us by
I stood there and wondered
what everybody else was thinking?
What were they like?
What were their dreams?

Here we have 30 people
3 children and 20 dreams
try to match the dream with the person………………………………

Passing an exam – Academic or otherwise is the most wonderful feeling.
To have been judged by ones peers to be good enough after weeks – months
even years of learning and endless practice is fantastic – brilliant and marvelous!

But I wonder if a thought ought to be spared for those who also wait for the result
Those who care passionately wether we pass or fail
Those who walk the floor waiting for the phone to ring
Constantly checking the time
nervously drinking or chain smoking or praying
One with her ears covered and another with his head in a cardboard box
Driven to distraction by the waiting
and at the same time afraid to hear the result………….

The words “I’ve done it” shouted while floating from cloud nine
are greeted with “Congratulations” and “I never doubted you”
And perhaps it is because of those very people who care so much
that the feelings of joy are so great!
So if you’ve just done it – “Well done”
