Sculpting is Fun!!!!

I have been taking an Ecorche class from Nikki Covington. I am sculpting all of the bones and muscles of the body. It is a blast, I love learning.

The tail and round foot will change after evolution happens.

I love leather, and I love marbles. So I decided to
combine them and make something useful.

I sell these on Etsy at
It is fun to be creative not only in oil paint.
Check it out and maybe buy one?????

Business Card

I have been wanting to do a business card for a while. I started with a pencil drawing....

then I painted it in oils.

I was going for something fun to capture peoples attention. I hope it works.

PS (The colors in real life look so much better.)

This is for sale on etsy:

Returning back to paint.

I get oil painting withdrawals. This happens usually when I can't paint for a few days. In these moments I paint something just for myself, like this face. I grab a tube of paint that either I hate or that I have never used. (I have a small case of paints that were given to me.) In this case Manganese Violet was chosen. (PS. I hate purple tubes of paint!) I think it is the challenge of painting with something that I wouldn't normally choose. I should have used more purple paint.

Exploring ideas for my BFA

These were fun, and I liked painting them. 8x10 oils.
This was inspired by a photo that doesn't look anything like this.

This one is from a black and white movie book.
Making up my own color is a challenge I enjoy.

I wish the photos were better with color. I should get a scanner!

Ship Designs

There were a lot more than these designs. I only included the better ones.


These are straight out of the sketchbook. Pen and Pencil.
I like the tree the most.

Profile practice.

Happy whimper snapper.

Geometric Forms

I have learned so much from trying to draw simple forms.
I am understanding depth better. And forcing myself to push
and pull the form.

Kings and Queens

I just looked at my past blog posts and saw lots of improvement. I still wish I was much better. Some of the portraits are so bad. Oh well. I will be better tomorrow.

These are oil on board, inspired by Ryan Wood.

Avalanche Software blogspot is so cool!!!! Go there an be amazed.
