Some narrative paintings

These are some of my narrative paintings.  I have been using the term “narrative” for a long time now, but I am aware that my paintings might not always fit that definition, which is fine.   Maybe in another life I could  have been a political cartoonist.   I have always thought that a sense of humor lends much to painting, and I tip my hat to Edward Gorey, whose wonderful works have inspired me since I was a child.
