Latest Artwork

Hi everyone, I got out a demo project I had worked on at the Swinging on a Leash pet/dog expo I showed at this fall and worked on it a little. The reference from Wet Canvas looks like a little pit bull puppy to me.

I don't consider him finished, but almost. He is done in colored pencil on 11 x 14 Ampersand pastelbord.

I have set it aside for a little while and started another project. I took some prints and one original to a local art gallery and picture framing shop. The owner said that she would be interested in having a large work involving a bald eagle for display. So I started an 18" by 24" project involving a bald eagle. This is the preliminary sketch work in progress.



  1. Oh good for you. Both for getting out there but also for working on a bigger scale. How are you feeling about the project?

    Glad to see you back. I peek in every now and again and you, my dear have been MIA for awhile now. I figured tax season and winter have got you pretty busy. Glad you're back at any rate. :)

  2. Thanks, Mona. I don't know where the time goes sometimes --- don't want to get on here and talk about angst.

    I am looking forward to the bald eagle project. I did alot of studying -- had thought more about a flying eagle with a backgrouond, especially when going so large. But in the end, this composition seems to be the one that is most authenic for me to express at this time. I still have quite a bit of work to do on the sketch before can work on the colored version. I hope it works out, but will be a challenge, I am sure.

  3. The little puppy looks fantastic!
