New work.......


This is a paper painting ..... Color aid papers, beads, specialty glitter paper, origami paper, eventually I want to translate this into oil and mixed media.....I began this process with several detailed drawings.

New work and re-do's on some older works

For me it's all about simplification.... Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. Francis of Assisi

Moving right along with my 30 portrait studies.  I am learning and growing as I go along.  I use from my sources of inspiration ....Sarah Sedwick........John Singer Sargeant.....what better artists to help light the way.  I enjoy the challenge of age as well as ethnicity.  Because I must work from a photo it is important to not draw as though it were as paint by number.  It is difficult.   I try very hard to look at light and shadow shapes and lay the value in as I see it....working quickly and decisively.......  " Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results."
