Working on a new painting and decided to take a picture. You can see how I work with my painting on a bar stool. Oh, maybe you can't. Well I do with a pillow desk top thingy on the bar stool. I keep my drawing next to me to keep me on the right track. It was hard to get the face looking like the drawing until today. I started Last Friday. It's hard to control those brushes sometimes. Anyway, here I am, hopefully I will have a lot more done next week. Everyone take care and have fun and Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, Christ Church Cathedral here in Lexington buys artwork. One of their paintings is mine. They were getting a new painting of one of their Bishops unveiled Friday and did a show of artworks in their collection. When they did the unveiling they invited the other artists to stand and be reconized. I was kind of pushed to the back and the person talking to each artist overlooked me, but Jess mark called her attention to me out loud and I wasn't forgotten. He has been very good to me, Thanks Jesse!

Here is the drawing for my next painting, then I'll paint the drawing below. This will be the first painting I've done in a while, being that I've been working in Color Pencil. I enjoy both, but I like Color Pencil just bit more and I work faster in it. It just doesn't sell as well for some reason. Great news! I talked to a book publisher yesterday and might get some Illustration jobs. I'm working on a portfolio now and plan to send it to her in a few days. Wish me luck! Thanks!

Well here is Roots. I named it that both for the connection of one's self to the land, but also because there are a lot of Roots. This is a color pencil piece. I don't know if I got a good enough picture of it though. On the full size I don't know if you can see the model well enough. I did a detailed crop so you can see the model better. I have a few pieces in the works that I need to finish. I get excited and start new ones before I'm finished with the ones I'm working on. Guess I should do that now. Everyone take care and have fun!
