Saintly Pirate

My wife says that this is a saintly pirate.  He has been getting more and more innocent looking, as I have been adding more and more glazes.   I am realizing the importance of having a really good base drawing under layers of glazes.

Faun Sketch

I spent some more time on this today.  The drawing is looking much better.  Does anybody have goat friends that I could use????

Clouds in Smithfield, Utah

I am addicted to fun clouds.   These clouds had interesting values, great shapes, and overlapping.  This is not a normal blue sky.

Pen Sketch of Trees

I did this at Fircrest Park in Salem, Oregon.  My hope is that pen sketches will eventually help me to paint better in oils.  It is tricky trying to decide what has emphasis, and what detail should be left out.

Patriotic Sculpture by Niki Covington

Usually I just post my own art.  This is a sculpture that my friend Niki Covington made called "The Spirit of Freedom".   I thought it would be appropriate for this month.  If you go to his blog you can read some patriotic messages.
