Some watercolor portraits of people that I finished recently. Please check out my commissions and contact info page if you are interested in having one done for you or someone you love!
This is my latest painting, finished 11/19/13 I loved the composition that the telephone wires created. I also was fascinated with the numerous birds that were perched on every surface. The original is 11×16, making each bird aprox 1/2″ but I attempted to make each one individual and pack on as much detail as I could.
This painting was created this year in April. It is water color and graphite, with acrylic accents. I wanted to depict what it was like for Jesus in that moment of decision in the garden of Gethsemane when he had to choose God’s will or his own. It struck me how real it is that Christ actually shared in our temptations, just like the Bible claims and he never asks us to do anything he didn’t do first!
This mural was created on the side of an old drug store on the square in Mountain Grove, MO. It is about 27 feet long and 7 feet high. Though the inside of the store is no longer a drug store, the painting was composed from the recollection of old-timers memories and old photos of the outside of the building. The rest was fabricated from imagination. Completed in 2010
I had wanted to paint a picture of sparrows eating fries for a long time, mainly because it intrigued me that these little birds were so adaptable. They were at home in the city, eating human food, even though they are by nature wildlife. It wasn’t until I went to college and started experimenting with perspectives, that I had a breakthrough with the composition and ‘American Sparrows’ happened.
