Finally, a New Painting!

It seems that there will just be times when life gets in the way of creativity.  🙁

My past two months have been full of all kinds of activity — too little of which…

What I’ve been up to…

Sadly, not painting.  The creating a neighborhood website project was followed by the cleaning out the attic project (in anticipation of finishing the remodeling the attic project), which was followed by the cleaning out the garage project, and then the cleaning out the storage room project!

Next up, I…

Three More Sketches from My Attic Discovery

Oh, I’m so glad I found these; I really was wondering what happened to the first one, which was a colored pencil study for a color woodcut that I never made.  The second sketch was an ink study for a single-color (B/W) woodcut that I did make,…

A Few More Scribbles and Sketches

It’s been so long since I packed these away, I forgot that I’d ever drawn them.

Found Sketches from Way Back

I’ve been working in our “new” attic room — sorting through so many boxes, and finding wonderful stuff among tons of junk.  In one of the 26 boxes stored in the attic that contained previously unknown content — boxes that I just sorted through — I found 18 sketches…

“Enchanted Rock” print – SOLD

Sold my last remaining matted print of this painting of Enchanted Rock, from my early representational days of painting.  I still have 2 unmatted small prints left, and I imagine those will sell eventually, too.

This has been my most popular image for selling prints.  And I…
