Anyone who has been a child at any point in the past four decades has, knowingly or not, appreciated the work of Michael Humphries. From small-screen stalwarts like “The Jetsons,” “SuperFriends,” “Scooby-Doo” and “Smurfs” to big-screen beauties like “The Lion King” and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?,” the handiwork of Humphries has always been in the background - literally. “I'm basically a landscape painter,” he says. “That's what I've done since I was a kid of probably 11 years old.” This weekend, he'll be showing off his skills in a more traditional fashion in “Heart and Soul,” an exhibition of paintings at his La Cañada gallery - where his work hangs alongside those of local artist Trish Kertes.

The man who bills himself as “The Artist of Light, Love, Beauty and Wisdom” is unveiling a boatload of new oil paintings throughout the month at Sadco Gallery in Glendale. Alexander Sadoyan, an artist who immigrated to America 13 years ago, is displaying an eclectic mix of styles and images in his show at a storefront gallery whose decorative offerings of jewelry and bric-a-brac are equally as diverse. Sadoyan’s Armenian community turned out in full support at the gallery opening and, if Sadoyan’s passion for creating lots of art was not fully expressible in English, his son Gregor was there to translate.

JEFF TULLY When my daughter Shannon was born almost three years ago, I made definite plans for her athletic future. With no intention of pushing her into anything she didn't want to do, I figured I would present her with a sports easel, and let her choose which paints she wanted to use to create her own fun. I wanted to make sure my little girl learned the fundamentals of a wide variety of sports, like how to...

THEN -- When Seymour and Helen Thomas moved to the Crescenta Valley in 1915, the famous artist was making a very good living painting portraits of the rich and famous of that era. Millionaires such as the Carnegies and Chandlers made huge demands on the artist's schedule, keeping him working long hours with his paints and brushes in his studio. So how did the artist relax in his rare, off hours? He painted, of course! For relaxation, Seymour Thomas enjoyed producing small landscapes, often in his own backyard, of his lushly wooded property just off Rosemont Avenue a block above Foothill Boulevard.

T he Burbank Art Assn.'s Spring Art Exhibition is unpretentious. The range of talent is vast, making it un-intimidating. There is truly room for all. Creating art serves everyone differently.

The spring exhibition is an eclectic collection of competitors, presenting their artistic efforts, having exercised a wide variety of techniques, media and artistic genres.

Darleene Barrientos Ralph Rodriguez was fondly remembered at a memorial Wednesday as a hard worker who also worked hard at being the life of the party. Dozens of co-workers gathered in front of Glendale Water and Power's power-plant gates at 800 Air Way to remember their gregarious friend. Two red roses wrapped in baby's breath flowers and cellophane were placed atop a boulder, which will be the foundation of a bronze plaque to honor Rodriguez. The boulder was found by GWP employee Mike Lawrence.

Amber Willard DOWNTOWN -- Bill Bennett's 1932 Roadster might be able to zip down Brand Boulevard in the blink of an eye, but Saturday night, it sat silent on the street. The Glendale man was one of more than 400 classic car owners who brought their rides to the city's eighth annual Cruise Night, which drew an estimated crowd of 40,000 people, city spokesman Ritch Wells said Sunday. "It's all steel. It's the real deal," Bennett said of his Roadster on Saturday, adding that although he does not know fast it will actually go, the acceleration on the car is amazing.

This is one of two poems, from Poetic Generations, displayed in the lobby of the Alex Theater last week. My Uncle's Hands By Michelle Muirhead, 11 My uncle's hands are shaky like an earthquake. My uncle's hands are dry mountains. My uncle's hands are as loving as a baby. My uncle's hands hug me, when I am with him. My uncle's hands are kind and gentle, when he touches me. My uncle's hands are like a determined baby robin learning how to fly. My uncle's hands are as old as a sea turtle.
