environmental activism at OOMMI


as I’m getting more into my doodling art


as I keep abreast of what’s happening in the world

regarding environmental issues

I see a need to sometimes use this website

as an outlet for my views about the environment

I would like to hear your views also

even if you totally disagree with me


I will NOT approve comments that are abusive,

use inappropriate language or attack me personally

I’m not changing the tone of my blog

most of my environmental art will go on my Tumblr blog

3 sketches from Kindles Mobile Sketchbook app

I’m having a very difficult time photographing my watercolors


I’ll be going back to colored pencils

Kindle apps


computer software

while I try to figure out what I’m doing incorrectly

with my cameras


maybe I could figure out how to get my printer to scan properly

techie probs here 🙂

I just had to add the Mini

it’s the car I learned to drive in more years ago

than I care to think about

I rather like it driving (carefully) across the page 😀

enjoy Snarky and Carl’s whimsical environment

thank you!!!

celebrate “HAIR”







while bald is beautiful, hair, of any length, is magnificent

I love that, in this day and age, some ladies choose bold vibrant colors for their hair

my 3 OOMMI ladies chose BLUE 😀

their colors and the hair styles remind me of the musical/movie “HAIR”

love these lyrics,

*”I want long, straight, curly, fuzzy, snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty

Oily, greasy, fleecy, shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen

Knotted, polka dotted, twisted, beaded, braided

Powered, flowered and confettied

Bangled, tangled, spangled and spa(g)hettied”


what can I say I’m just an old hippie 😀


*found the Hair lyrics here:  http://www.elyrics.net/read/h/hair-lyrics/hair-lyrics.html

cry red


I created this little .gif ages ago

back when I had a website that I set up

and wrote my own html for,

this graphic was for a page I called


Stop Every Violent Episode Now

my effort back in the late 1990s to make people more aware

of physical and mental abuse

I created “cry red” in Windows Paint, using my mouse and 3 colors

it’s so basic, so elemental,

but it still moves me emotionally when I look at it

Arizona thistle



computer thistle




the real deal

taken with camera and film


in the desert color leaps out at you

grabs your attention

purples, pinks, yellows, oranges stand out against

the browns of the soil

the green plants in their multitude of shades


the intense azure sky
