    Negative: Yucky clouds. He seemed to have trouble portraying them realistically. Worst: “Dreamers.” The clouds on the left look like either an incoming tsunami or a giant sand dune.

    Positive: Humorous cat book titles in “Frederick The Literate” and “Remington The Well Read.” Too many to list here. Take a good look at them all and see if they don’t bring a smile to your lips.

    These: “A Field Guide to the Garbage Can”? “A Few Good Mice”? “War and Cheese”? Ha!

    I had only seen a few folk art works by this artist, so I was happy to see more of his work. Re: the “Yucky clouds” on “Dreamers,” I sort of assumed they were meant to be altered by the child’s imagination, not truly representative of what they actually look like. I agree that the cat pictures are very appealing. I also liked “Another Year at Sea.”

  3. LOL! Of course the cloud looks like an incoming tsunami . . . you completely missed the point, Bruce . . . It is called the Dreamer . . . do you not see the little boy sitting on the boat wistfully looking at the clouds . . . “dreaming” he is sailing the mighty seas . . . the clouds ARE waves in his mind.
