Just some drawings.

These were kind of fun. I used a H and a 2B pencil.

Summer Paintings

These were some quick paintings done for fun, to try a new style. Oil on masonite.
This one is my favorite. I love the face.

This one has ugly colors.

Just some apples.

I have been looking at David Laffels work, these are some of
his apples that I copied.

Paintings I did at Mike Malms workshop.

I did nine paintings. The only two worth showing are these.

This was a 45 minute study of Mikes demo, 12 x 8 oil.

This was a four hour painting, it's not finished. 16x20 oil. She has glowing eyes.

Workshop with Mike Malm

This is Mike Malm in his studio painting a demo for us.

He blocked out the basic shapes.

Then he paints the light and dark side.

This is the finished.

This was another demo.

Mike is an accomplished painter and is an amazing teacher. I learned a lot from his workshop. This was well worth my time and money. He gives you one on one time, which is the best way for me to learn. I highly recommend any workshop from Mike Malm.

Hey the last picture.

The last picture takes too long to load. If you have skills and can tell me how to fix the size. That would be awesome.

New Media

This is my first digital painting I started in illustrator
and did the rest in photoshop. I love Wacoms, it is so 
much fun! I learned so much from this painting. I hope 
to do more of these in the future. Maybe I can finish this 
one up for my portfolio in the summer.

Random Stuff

Here is another head study. This was my favorite one,
but now when I look at it there are a few problems.
Sometimes art is made to haunt us.
This is a self portrait.  Done with white paint and pencil.
This is charcoal. It was done in 2005, drawing II. I still really like this piece.

Just thought I would update.

I did this for class. The article was called "Thinking past the pain". The phrase I used was "Your lungs suck air through a clogged straw." Well I am proud of this but there is plenty room for improvement. I love the eye and upper face.
