Entrepreneurs at Work

This print is called "Entrepreneurs at Work".   Surrounded by buildings where all the lights are out and no one is working, there is an upstairs office in the center building where someone is still at it.  That's how it is for those of us who call ourselves entrepreneurs.  In spite of the economy, we push on because for us there isn't another way.

Here is a clip from one of my all time favorite films -- "The Fabulous Baker Boys" starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Jeff and Beau Bridges -- three "entrepreneurs" who can't give up.

After this video, other options will show up to hear Pfeiffer sing.  Click on Part 2 to hear more.  So good!

Are You Being Naughty?

In 1929 jazz pianist Fats Waller wrote "Ain't Misbehaviin'.  By this time it is considered a jazz standard.  Since this drawing has an air of naughtiness to it, I thought it would be fun to title her after Waller's song "Ain't Misbehavin'.   Hope you enjoy this rendition.  He wrote the music with  Harry Brooks and the lyrics are by Andy Razaf.

No one to talk with, all by myself
No one to walk with, but I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you.

I know for certain the one you love
I'm through with flirtin', it's just you I'm thinkin' of
Ain't Misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you.

Like Jack Horner in the corner
don't go nowhere, what do I care
Your kisses are worth waitin' for . . . Believe me.

I don't stay out late, don't care to go
I'm home about 8, just me and my radio
Ain't Misbehavin', I'm savin' my love for you.
