New Piece for 300 Plates Show
Here is my second piece for this year's 300 Plates Show at Art Access Gallery. I described a bit about this show/fundraiser a bit ago when I posted November Pastures here. The show is coming up on Thursday night, May 14, 2015 and tickets are limited. Get tickets early to have a chance at tons of ...

A Little Visit to the Desert...
Here's a little sneak peek of the final for the book I am working on called Cactus Hotel. Just a little full page of a roadrunner having a little lizard snack in the shade of a big Saguaro. A few more of the drawings were posted earlier, if you would like to have a look.

Good to be outside painting again!
Last Saturday, I went out painting with friend and fellow painter Richard Hull. We ventured up to Oakley Utah to see if we could find a worthy subject or two for the day's efforts. My first painting subject was chosen based largely on the contract between the muted yellows and greens of the ...

Al Parker: Illustrator-Innovator. This guy's work was amazing!
Al Parker: Illustrator-Innovator is the gorgeous new book from Manuel Auad of Auad Publishing. This gorgeous volume follows up similar treatment given to Albert Dorne and Robert Fawcett. I have been wanting to give this book a proper overview since it arrived in the mail and now is the time.

New project I am working on about Sonoran desert animals.
The book switches from one animal to the next and includes sound words on the right side page to introduce the next animal before you turn the page. The text blocks will go in the large open sky areas on the left hand page. I enjoy doing these sort of nature themed projects and this one should ...

Civil War fiction for Boys' Life
Here are a couple of illustrations I just finished up for Boys' Life Magazine. They are for an historical fiction piece about a young man that witnesses the surrender of Lee and his troops to the forces of General U.S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. In the first spread, The young man is ...

Epic Painting- Finally Finished!
Over a year ago, we were on our way back from a swim meet with our teenage son when I saw the most intriguing subject off the side of the freeway. Now, to most people, what I saw would seem unremarkable, even mundane. To me, the subject beckoned me. Not in a whisper that can easily be brushed ...

Spring is Here! The critters are coming out.
They enjoy munching on the green grass for a time before escaping back to the den when a fox appears. I tried to give the little guys some personality despite the need to portray them as realistically and not stylize too much. I would rather have made them more animated and characterized, ...

Working the atmospheric effects....
This is one of two pieces that will be part of the upcoming 300 Plates show at Art Access. The Show and auction will take place on May 14, 2015, but I needed to finish one of my two plates early in order to be included in the promotional materials. I did the 300 Plates show for the first time ...

Drood Poster- so much fun!
Can I tell you how much I love doing theater posters? This is one I just finished for Footlight Players in Charleston, SC, and once again I had a blast creating the art. The Mystery of Edwin Drood, is an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens that was turned into a musical play by songwriter and ...

You reap what you sow.
This recent illustration is a reminder to me that you are most likely to get what you work the hardest for. Farm iconography has always been appealing to me. Probably because as a young man growing up, I had many opportunities to work the land. We cared for animals, gardened and hauled hay.

Story
Tagline
I make pictures for a living - and for fun.
Introduction
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
Bragging rights
In over twenty years, I have never been a "starving artist".
