Pencil/watercolor Sketch.

I bought a pack of precut 5" x 7" watercolor sheets and have been trying to come up with a use for them. Here's a mini portrait of myself with my lovely friend, Beth.

Charcoal Study.

I found this drawing while cleaning out the studio. Circa 2009?

Charcoal and white pastel on toned paper.

While laying in bed last night, unable to sleep, I did the smart thing and grabbed my phone to note an idea I had for a portrait series. I have a bad habit of not writing down thoughts that come to me in the night, inevitably leaving me frustrated the next morning when I no longer remember what my "brilliant" concept was.

Sleepy brains cannot be trusted!

I'm off to work at the house today, but I hope to have a little something (art-related) to share soon.

Back To Work.

We had an amazing time in Chicago. Between the comic con, vegan eats, and a Star Wars burlesque show, how could we not have enjoyed ourselves? Now that we've returned home, it's time to finish up things at the house and get ourselves moved. I hope these last few rooms go speedily!

A few photos from the trip:

Mixed Media Bunnies + An Update.

I've been working on this piece off and on for the last few months and am glad to say that it is finally finished!

Graphite, watercolor, and acrylic paint on 12" x 12" Rives BFK.

I'm also pleased to announce that a local shop/gallery, Otter & Oak, now has several of my pieces on display in their gallery. They are located in a beautiful older building in downtown Hinton, WV. If you're local to this part of the world, it's well worth the trip to see what they have to offer (and maybe spend a little time on the river while you're there!).
