This is my gateway site. I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two main posting sites
- my blog (where I show some of my pictures and pay tribute to artists and images that excite me)
- my Yahoo! Group (where you can see my latest pictures and stories and join my mailing list).

There's a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2018).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

hank you for your interest and support.

Men before Machines

Mercury is a classic subject for male anatomy studies and this colourful portrayal of him, striding across the sky, is highly traditional too, affording a modest portrayal of the naked body. For some reason, the well developed upper thighs and chiseled, strong looking face made me think of him as a Rugby player. Quite apposite with the World Cup upon us again. I'm not sure this very modern-looking man would think his helmet terribly flattering, hats can be a minefield, as I'm sure Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will attest!

Men and Machines

What is it about men and motorbikes?
The attraction of power? A love affair? Or just companionship.
This picture by Michael Downs covers all the bases.
