Graphite Drawing of Emily



"Searching" graphite, 14x11

I still feel so new to traditional media and I'm sure I will continue to feel that way. It is a bit scary trying to learn so much at once but it is also very exciting! There are so many possibilities...

Northern Cardinal Painting


"Brown Bear" oil on panel, 9x12

I am lucky enough to have many backyard visitors, including northern cardinals. I started giving them silly "descriptive" names to identify them, hence the name "Brown Bear." This isn't quite the direction I want to go with oils but I still had a lot of fun painting this friend.
