A Day With My Son

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 11:18 am

I’m sitting here alone with my grandson. It seems appropriate to post this drawing from the Archives: 1975.

Home alone with my son. I finally wore him out. Did a quick sketch before he woke up.

The Flamingo Girl

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 6:47 pm

On a trip to Disneyland, in the “Alice and Wonderland” section, there were a couple of entertainers who were walking around on stilts made to look like they were riding on giant flamingos. I took a few photos and, years later, decided to create a drawing from them.

Another request from the church. This is for the Halloween “Trunk or Treat” event. Cars line up in the church parking lot and distribute candy to all the little monsters who happen by.

Poppy Field at Sunset

Filed under: PAINTINGS — Colby @ 9:02 pm

It is what it is: a¬†painting I really didn’t want to do in the first place and didn’t want to continue once it was¬†started. But I was determined to struggle through. I finally reached a point where I thought, “I’m done.”
