Sailboats sheltering in the early morning in Drake's pool


Oil on masonite 31 x 27 cm

For this piece I tried to concentrate only on the color shapes in the scene.
Rather than attempt to paint boats in the water I placed on the  masonite
as accurately as possible, a description of the shapes I could see and the
colors they assumed without regarding them as components of the real
world but instead just considering them as a collection of abstract
color shapes.

Thanks for looking :)

Leo


 Ballpoint pen on cartridge  20 x 14 cm

Leo is a dog of no particular pedigree
Small and muscular and tough
His growl so deep it makes you shudder
and he pants like laughter
then walks toward you rolling his big head
which he lands in your lap
and closes his eyes and snorts and sighs
"I am your dog
Where are the dog treats?"

Thanks for looking :)

The Arrest



Minen lead, graphite pitt and oil pit on fabriano      46 x 36 cm

The thing about pencil drawings is that you could continue
adding to them forever, but I think there comes a time
when you must just say stop.... at least for now.


Thanks for looking :)

Empty glass bottle



Disposable pen on recycled paper 30 x 20 cm

It seems lately that I am unable to let go of these cheap pens, I am
finding them so versatile. I just buy them in bunches and draw with 
reckless abandon.. 

Thanks for looking :)
