Monday Morning

Back to it.
I Had a nice Thanksgiving. Hope all you did too!
I'm thankful to have a Monday morning with a
full work day ahead of me.
This is the back alley by my studio.
That's my window at the lower right.

Musette and the "Grassy Knoll"

Dr. Sketchy was last Sunday at the 331 Club.
Musette was our model. She's something else. (OO-LaLa!)
Since it happened to be Nov. 22 they themed this scene
around the Kennedy assasination.
"Thank God they missed her!" I titled this.
This sketch was a 15 minute pose. I spent another 15 minutes
tweeking & putting in bullets.

Night Fix

I started this painting last week. Eager to catch the moment, I got lost.

What would MacGyver do?

I contacted Tony Peters, (California Artist) since I knew Tony liked

nocturnes and is a merited Artist.

Tony was kind enough to spend some time to give a critique.

Thanks again Tony! I think it helped this piece a lot!

Sometimes you gotta work late

I met with some possible clients the other day, and realized how early it is getting dark.
The city lights were on and I needed to finish up.
It occured to me that this moment could make a nice painting, (part of a series Tony Peters
had commented on, (thanks Tony)
So I decided to stay and work on this piece. It's not done, it's really ruff, but the blog must be fed!

Sunny Days

There is an elm tree up the road that seems to hug you as you go by. The leaves

are golden. The autumn sky is true blue!
