Welcome, Visitors

This blog is here, so I may as well use it to display the art pieces I create. More than four years after I started, my main medium is still graphite and colored pencil, but I am also now experimenting with watercolor paints. Such pieces as I deem worthy will be displayed here, however, after posting the few back-dated pieces, my postings may not be too regular. I've been known to destroy unfinished pieces I do not like or to just not finish those pieces and move on to something else.

Pirate Sketch

Those of you who are old enough may remember the little characters sometimes seen on matchbook covers... where you were invited to draw the character and then submit your drawing for evaluation. This pirate is one of those characters, provided by Art Instruction schools.  No, I didn't submit my drawing to them... I really can't afford to pay for their courses.

Finished Wren

Here's the finished bird... I think I enjoy the drawing more than painting... not sure yet though.  The painting was finished in February, 2009. It was shown in March for one week, and in a different location in April for less than one week... during it's showing in April, this painting sold for $65.00 framed, less than two months after it was finished.
