"Wish"

I am exploring and experimenting with different art techniques and decided to keep (and hopefully maintain) a Visual Art Journal.  This is my first entry, entitled "Wish," which I submitted to this week's Illustration Friday challenge.

Dave Matthews

I struggled creating this painting of Dave Matthews, but it is finally done!  It was a long and difficult learning process and well worth the time and effort.

Bruce!

I think I'm on a rock star roll!  Here is my latest piece of Bruce Springstein.

Steven Tyler

My son is a huge Steven Tyler fan, so I painted a portrait of this very colorful rock star for him!

Moby

Playing with soft pastel, I painted our sweet 220 pound English Mastiff,  Moby.

Checkered

Trying a new technique of painting in patterns of dashes and lines, I created another portrait of my daughter entitled "Checkered."  This piece was displayed in the January 2014 faculty/student art show at the Art Center of Highland Park.
