Is life a quest for the perpetual 'golden fleece' or is it just a daily grind that, like a pencil sharpener, leaves us, in the end, a short little nib without much of a point? Hmmm. Such an existential question and so well-worded even I am pausing now to give a little think. Here's another 9 by 6 inch gel pen drawing on medium bond acid-free paper for your perusal. Hey, maybe try rubbing two words together until you get something like a spark. Yeah, just keep rubbing. Miracles happen, I've heard. But is it Original Jones Art? Only time will tell here in the dust bowl capitol of the world, Austin, Texas.

The arrows show the way,..hey, are you Romeo in this scenario! ;) Love your black and white sketches. I think these art pieces, are ready to go on a series of white coffee. "Coffee and Thee"...it would give fans a chance to mull over your works:))

Artist Reply: Thank you! I usually have a phrase that keeps repeating in my head once a drawing is beginning to coalesce. The phrase changes a bit until it's done, then I pronounce that last edit its title. It's just an old way of saying, "Where are you?" Are you referring to a coffee table book, Mark? Sounds good. :)

2 busy...2 words...like UR??

Artist Reply: If you've read my blog, Barry, I stated at one point that I comment when and where I feel moved to do so. It is everyone's prerogative to do likewise. BUT I never write a short and meaningless one. And two or three words? I'm much too verbose for that. Sometimes what I write in the description I do as a provocation to viewers---just to see if they are not only reading but doing so for comprehension. Nicely done, BTW! ;).
