Rock Steps

Filed under: PAINTINGS — Colby @ 8:26 am

I had the pleasure of visiting Holliday Park in Indianapolis and wandered around in the woods on the nature trails stopping briefly to take a photo of some rock steps on the trail. Here they are converted to an acrylic painting.

He Is Risen Banner

Filed under: Religious — Colby @ 4:07 pm

In April, 2009 I posted a drawing I had done for my church for Easter. Another church contacted me asking permission to use my drawing as the basis for a banner they wanted to do. I agreed. They made some changes and shared the final result. I think it looks really nice.

Godzilla vs Grandson

Filed under: CARTOONS,Fantasy,Portraits — Colby @ 6:34 pm

Grandkid who just had a birthday is into Godzilla among the other usual pursuits of an eleven year old boy. I created this Super Hero poster for him to go with his 50-DVD collection of cheesy sci-fi movies. I threw in a box set of Three Stooges movies just for the heck of it.

Evasive Ball

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 12:25 am

It takes awhile for children to grasp the reality of movement. By the time their little hands get to where the ball was, it’s gone.

After deciding on what image to start with my Muse and I argued about what medium to use; paint, pencil…? I chose to go with a very illustrative approach, ink outlines, water color pencil and no background.

And Life Goes On Without Her

Filed under: Uncategorized — Colby @ 12:26 am

When you lose someone very dear to you it’s strange to see how the world continues turning, people keep on doing whatever they’re doing and life goes on. This is for my wife who I miss every day. And for anyone else who has lost a special person. It’s the fourth song I’ve written for her and each one is a personal struggle. It’s my way of coping.

And then, in addition to the emotional hurdles, the microphone on my computer quit working so I resorted to singing into my iPad. It’s not the best audio but it is what it is.

I wrote the tune and the lyrics. A musician friend of mine, Brandy Herbert, arranged the background (http://www.ladyjazzer.com)
