Virgin Mary

This is a very old drawing from 1987 of Mary the mother of Jesus. I am thinking that it might be cool to re-visit this idea in a painting.

Astro Girl

This a digital piece I did a while back. I have this fondness for old retro 1950s and 1960s sci fi illustration. I used 3ds max and photoshop to make this pulp illustration. By the way, I call the girl "Astra".

Dark Haired Girl

dark haired girl 16 x 20 inches acrylic on canvas
This painting is really very fresh and light. The dark hair and thickly painted eyes seem to pop off the surface of the lavenders and pinks in the background. I enjoyed painting this girl, she is full of youth, and is literally the very embodiment of the spring season.

Dark Curls

Curls 2009 16 x 20 inches oil on canvas
There is nothing like the smell of oil paint! This oil painting marks the return of painting in oils for me. Once again the studio smells like linseed oil. I have missed the organic feel of oil paint, and it is like coming home to an old friend.
