Recent Work

Granite in Shadow
14 x 16"
Pastel on Canson Paper

I've been busy for the last 6 weeks teaching some pastel classes at work, so have not been very productive. I do sometimes setup to paint when I'm out with the class, but most often move around offering advice, and "meddling' on their work. Its really quite fun and rewarding, but I have only some fairly rough studies to show for it.

This is a studio piece, based on studies and reference from last summer's trip to Lake Ediza. Granite is so light in value that it is like a litmus paper for ambient and reflected colors when it is in shadow.

Thomas Jane on Hung

Hung finally premiers tonight on HBO. I even subscribed HBO in order to watch Thomas Jane on this show. In the opening credits, he jumped into water naked! Unfortunately, his first client changed her mind in the first episode. I can't wait to see him get his first job done!!!

Ryan Reynolds in Entertainment Weekly

My new scanner finally arrived yesterday so I decided to devote my first scan to HOT Ryan Reynolds in Entertainment Weekly!
