Dusty Drawings

I have quite a few pieces that I have started in the past and for some reason or another they have been left unfinished. I’m quite fond of all of them. It’s not that I didn’t want to finish them. They were just pushed to the back burner and forgotten about. I figured if IContinue reading “Dusty Drawings”

Contrary Creatures

I have finally completed my second artwork of my equine/butterfly collection. This one is surrounded with innocence and curiosity. When I created my first piece, “Holifly“, I was intrigued by the natural acceptance these two diverse creatures shared with one another. This great majestic beast, capable of amazing feats of strength, mingles with a delicate flowerContinue reading “Contrary Creatures”

Canine Crone

Today is our beautiful Sasha’s 14th birthday! It’s hard to believe she has been with us for so many years. She has been a wonderful member of the family. She is very caring and kind, especially to children and young critters. We always refer to her as our son’s nanny. Sasha is a white GermanContinue reading “Canine Crone”

An Artist’s Library

My son and I took a well-deserved trip to a local bookstore today. It was actually, quite literally a warehouse filled with used books. All books for a dollar! Who can pass that up? At that price, it was easy to find one to add to my collection. I am quite proud of the books I haveContinue reading “An Artist’s Library”

Hearts & Hippocampus

I’ve completed my latest painting. I was commissioned to do a piece for a wedding gift of two seahorses in the shape of a heart. The newlyweds’ favorite colors are blue and orange, so this became the easy choice for the seahorses. The leaf in the corner is a little accent requested to highlight theContinue reading “Hearts & Hippocampus”

Free Spirit WIP V

Boy, have I been slacking on my art! Well, not so much slacking as it is consumed with my photography the last couple of weeks. In the past month, I have taken roughly over 3,000 pictures of everything I’ve been up to! That’s the beauty/horror of the digital age, you have an unlimited amount of picturesContinue reading “Free Spirit WIP V”

Alligator Fabricator

I am so pleased with how my latest piece turned out. When I first saw the reference photo, I was a little unsure if I should tackle it. There was so much detail in the scales. And I guess I’ll let the cat out of the bag…I started this piece the night before the birthdayContinue reading “Alligator Fabricator”

Free Spirit WIP IV

I’ve had the pleasure this year to be introduced to an amazing woman from England. I’ve been helping her in her gardens and doing odd jobs at various locations. She is also an artist and as she says “went to university” for fine art. She’s very smart and immensely talented. I admire her poise. YouContinue reading “Free Spirit WIP IV”

Totem Animals: What Does the Fox Really Say?

Terrible songs aside, what does the fox really have to say? I had mentioned in previous posts that the fox has been appearing in my day to day life quite often. I even saw a wild one for the first time recently. With the reoccurring fox image appearing to me, I figured it was timeContinue reading “Totem Animals: What Does the Fox Really Say?”

The Wedding Week

A good friend of mine, the best really, called me a week ago and says “How long would it take you to paint a wedding gift for me?” I had an idea of what she wanted and thought for a minute. “About a week. When do you need it?” I asked. “In exactly a week,”Continue reading “The Wedding Week”
