Snoose Commission

Snoose Commision 24″X36″ Here is the reason I haven’t posted anything but sketchbook stuff in a while. I’ve been working at least five hours a day on this guy, for three weeks…(planning, sketching, etc…) I’ve finally come to the point where I don’t know what the heck else to do with it. I’m always amusedContinue reading “Snoose Commission”

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

So…my last post was the first part of the poem…What Are Little Girls Made Of, so it only made sense to do the second half next. I had fun planning this one. I couldn’t find anything to paint from life that seemed creative enough, so I gathered photographic references of critters, and a pic ofContinue reading “What Are Little Boys Made Of?”

What Are Little Girls Made Of?

What Are Little Girls Made Of? This poem was going through my head last night while I was thinking about what to sketch for my Sketchbook Project Moley…it’s not so easy to find things around the house to represent girls and boys. I need to exercise my imagination a bit more. Anyways, this is the result, allContinue reading “What Are Little Girls Made Of?”

A Couple of Hardbodies

A Couple of Hardbodies — Sketchbook Project Please click on this one — it looks way better big! I know that all I’ve been showing you all lately is sketches, but I am painting, really. I sketch at night, and paint during the day, trying to get this commission done so I can finally goContinue reading “A Couple of Hardbodies”

These Old Shoes

These Old Shoes–Sketchbook Project Some more shoes….they’re fun to draw. Blank ballpoint with some blue details. They took about three hours. Funny, I have patience to work on a sketchbook picture that long, but a big painting on canvas? Not so much, lol! I suppose there’s always a feeling that the canvases are serious, tooContinue reading “These Old Shoes”

View from the Gazebo

View from the Gazebo-Coast Mountain Lodge I’m feeling a bit homesick today, missing my friends and family. My best friend is getting married today, too, and I’m missing it, because I’m still stuck here. Congratulations, Jen! I love you! This is a sketch I did while I was still in Bella Coola, before the flood.Continue reading “View from the Gazebo”

My Darling Daddy

Sketchbook Project — My Darling Daddy I was feeling inspired this morning as I was looking at the newest “Strokes of Genius” collection of drawings, so I decided to draw my dad. This is just pencil in my little moley, from life while having his morning cigarette…(Hack! Hack!) The eyes look a little freaky inContinue reading “My Darling Daddy”

This Girl’s Shoes

Sketchbook Project- This Girl’s Shoes A new sketch for the Sketchbook Project.  This one was fun! I was inspired by Andrea Joseph and her wonderful shoes in ballpoint. I started out in black ballpoint, and then thought “they’re so colorful, I can’t leave that out”, so I did the color accents in colored pencil. TheseContinue reading “This Girl’s Shoes”

Cat, Kitten, Kitty, ACEO, oil painting, miniature painting

Jade ACEO SOLD I haven’t really sketched in a few days as I’ve been working on the color study for my large commission, so I thought I’d post one of my latest ACEO’s. I ‘ve also been working on a cute sketch for my daughter. I couldn’t sleep last night, so I started doodling, somethingContinue reading “Cat, Kitten, Kitty, ACEO, oil painting, miniature painting”
