This model has lots of character.

Blue Glass Finished

Here's the finished product. I never know if I should continue further developing the piece or leave it as is. In general I work it up to a point where I feel like I can't do any more, and sometimes it seems overworked to me, but other times it looks like I should continue but I'm not sure how to go approach it.

Still Life

Here's another oil pastel I did a long time ago while still in school. It was part of a series of three drawings centered around a glass shelf in my bathroom.

Male Nude on Stool

This was cheap paper that I was drawing on but I really liked the texture of it.

Woman's Head

Here's a model I painted one day during a figure drawing session. She had a nice elfish look to her.

I don't normally draw on colored paper but I occasionally experiment with it.

Right Guard

Well, I found a temporary workaround for uploading images, so here's today's picture. I drew this in oil pastel a long time ago while I was going to school at Columbia College Chicago.

Technical Difficulties

I am experiencing technical difficulties uploading photos to Blogger. Hopefully these issues will be resolved soon and I'll be back to posting. Thanks for your patience...

Blue Glass Almost Done

I'm basically just refining this one more, I think it's almost done.

I like to do gesture drawings while I'm watching tv. This may or may not be Jerry Seinfeld.

Here's my Illustration Friday entry, "Communication." Done with Painter. I'm having fun using Painter but there's so much I don't know about it. I've read and read and watched videos about masks and channels but still can't figure out how to put them to use.


In this painting I tried to use a really limited palette. I think I just used various shades of blue and orange, as well as white.
