    Check this out ...

    As many of you know my brother passed away in Jan. He was an awesome artist. As my gift to my brothers and sisters and a few other family members I asked his wife if I could take some of his drawings -- mostly pencil sketches -- and make copies of them for us. I made a small notebook of about 15-20 copies for us and thought I'd scan them in for me a copy on disc.

    He was a race fan, and here are a couple that he did of Dale Earnheardt and his son.

    What do ya think?

    Those are great drawings. Me being an artist myself I've been meaning to sit down and draw a picture of the intimidator, but I haven't had time. Seeing those has definatly inspired me to get it done. I too am sorry to hear about your brother.

    lovely pictures!
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
