Happy New Year!

Another month of daily drawings completed and my third year of daily drawings done. I have big plans for 2020, but they will take time – good thing I have the entire year! I will continue creating art every day (or most every day) and will post the results here as I go. Just for fun, here are my images from December 2017 and December 2018.

College Artwork

February 25, 2014

Having had no opportunity to paint this past week I have no new artwork for my blog. Instead I am posting artwork that I created in college while I was studying graphic design. After storing these pieces for years, moving from one place to another, about ten years ago I decided to photograph the ones I liked and to toss the originals. Sadly, what I thought were good photos at the time were very mediocre. And some of the dates are best guesses – as are most of the dimensions. Most of these were done as specific assignments – some quite obviously. Other’s not so much. Clearly I preferred some mediums far more than others. And maybe one day I’ll gain some rudimentary skill with watercolour – or not. And that’s ok. It is what it is.
