“The Man with the Alpaca Felt Hat”

This was a voluntary portrait of a friend. The picture was taken the first day we met and he was sporting one of his wife’s hand-made alpaca hats. He looked so frail and yet his personality was so colorful, that I just had to try to capture that in this watercolor / colored pencil sketch.

“Not My Will, But..”

"Not my Will, But..."
“Not my Will, But…”

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!
