The Kiss by L. Martel

This is an 8″ x 19″ oil on canvas board I started last week. August Rodin had his kiss so I have mine “Covid-19” style. It has to be difficult for the young people to meet and develop relationships these days.

The Quarter Man by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Unfinished Business in iTunes

This is one of my favourite songs, featuring the vocals of two of my favourite guys, Huncle C and Big Dio. You can listen to swo8 Blues Jazz on any streaming station and actually you’ll be making us some money (all of $.000243478 of a dollar). Not actually a get rich project.

Guilty Until Proven Innocent by L. Martel

This is a 5″ x 7″ oil on canvas board I started late last year. It is a reflection on of our legal system. I do believe there are a lot of innocent people in jail. The painting isn’t finished although I signed and dated it. I have to fix the bars that are a different size and the foreshortening of the fingers etc. So it looks like this will be a 2021 painting.

Tropical Seas by L. Martel

This is an 8″ x 10″ acrylic on canvas painted in 2018. I didn’t sign it because I entered it into a contest. Needless to say, the powers that be didn’t appreciate it. Too bad for them because it still gives me great joy. Have you ever seen tropical seas? They’re just teaming with life and beauty.
