Girl in Blue

Another oldie. I haven’t had a chance to draw and paint lately. I’ve been keeping my grandkids. And loving every minute of it.

Larry in a Yellow Hat

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

This is the choir director at Central Lutheran Church in Dallas. His talent constantly amazes me. He has taken a guy like me, who doesn’t know anything about music, to a guy who is now well aware how much he doesn’t know about music.

This drawing was based on a photo taken during the dedication of my wife’s memorial garden and labyrinth.

I recently re-discovered this drawing from way back. I assumed I had already posted it but couldn’t find it. So, I’ll do it now.

Butterfly

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

I was stuck in the house and needed to do something for my sanity so I came up with a quick drawing using watercolor pencils. The idea was to draw most of the girl in grayscale and meld into color toward the butterfly. I was drawing the girl when I suddenly realized I had picked up the “Olive Green” pencil instead of the “Gunmetal Gray.” It ruined the whole concept of going from no color to color. Oh well, it is what it is. Live and learn, right?

Hair in Face

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

I went back and forth on this image. Couldn’t decide whether to paint or draw. I finally chose water soluble color pencils. I injured my hand and this was the first drawing since the injury. I had to stop occasionally to ice my hand.

Advent Journey

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

I rarely repeat any art that I do. This is an exception. Last year about this time I did an Advent illustration for my church. Just to be different I did it in a mosaic/stained glass technique. I immediately decided I would do a different, more realistic version. I used it for my 2016 Christmas Card.
