Vanitas 19

I just finished a new drawing Vanitas 19 today. This was a little tricky to do because this paper had so much roughness to the surface texture which I did not realize until a half way into the drawing. Somehow I managed to keep it under control though. This was a small drawing and took me just a week to complete. Nice change of pace before I move onto my next large piece...


A commission project

I just finished a commission project given through PatronArt. It was a painting of this couple who seemed to be newly weds when the original photograph was made many decades ago. It was such a sweet image and I was really interested in turning it into an oil painting. When I get a charming source material like this, the commission becomes an enjoyable one.


Vanitas 18 finished (6-30-2019)

I finally finished Vanitas 18 today. It took me a while, but I am relieved that it looks good and I am ready to move onto the next piece.


Figuratively Speaking show

Here is the poster of an upcoming show I am part of. "Figuratively Speaking" at Pennington Custom Art Services gallery, Columbus, OH. I have 2 VanDyke Brown prints in this show. Looking forward to the opening. 



Vanitas 18 update (05-22-2019)

I started working on Vanitas 18 a few weeks ago. I am hoping I can finish it in early June. This is a relatively larger graphite drawing of 17" x 25". So far I am happy about the way this is going.
