Oil rig drawing
Third in a series of oil rig drawings
A few years ago, my lifelong friend, DJ, flew out here for a weekend firefighting course in a nearby town, so I picked him up at the airport, and as he spent the days in class, I worked on this oil rig drawing at the hotel.
“Huh,” Deej said, “Our lives have sure changed. 15 years ago we’d have been up all night teaching this town what a good time really meant. Now, we’re just a couple of middle-aged Fudds drinking diet root beer and falling asleep to TV cartoons…”
“And we’re still going to feel like crap in the morning,” I said. “Except instead of a headache and nausea, it’ll be a sore back and crackly knees – and you’re crazy if you think I’m going to drink any of that root beer…I’ll be up all night with heartburn!”

Owen on Memories
"The events in my life - marriage, fatherhood, laughter with worthwhile people, bereavements, good songs, bad choices, onslaughts of challenges and occasional triumphs are all reflected in the drawings I create.
The artwork may have nothing to do with the event, but every drawing is charged with the emotions of the time.
It's like hearing that certain song come on the radio and BOOM - you're right back in high school with a broken heart...
I don't see the subjects of my drawings, really. I'm pulled back into what was happening in my life at the time I was drawing it. It demonstrates how life and art are inextricably linked."
