Defiant Stare

This snowy owl was painted for Reddit’s 2nd weekly art jam. He was a particular challenge since he has mostly white feathers. His defiant stare brought out my stubborn side and I am very happy with this rendition of his likeness.

Bronze Owl

This Friday night is the opening reception to the Hammonton Art Center‘s Twelfth Annual Juried Show. The pieces I have in the show are “April to April”, “Martha”, and “Samara in a Drawer #2”. My sister, Maria, also has art in the show. Her piece is “Fuzzy Fox” in pastels.

The drawing below is of a sculpture included in Friday’s exhibition. Once I saw it, I had to draw it. It is a large, bronze owl sculpted by the talented David Caccia. The work is titled “Barn Owl.”

Barn Owls Don’t Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Barn owls don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but they do mate for life. Today’s drawing is dedicated to all those love birds out there. Keep being full of adoration.

Western North Carolina Nature Center

I spent the past few days in the beautiful mountains  of North Carolina. During my stay, I went to visit the Western North Carolina Nature Center.   Along the outer edges of the map provided I drew all the animals I saw (except the bobcat, which is odd as I love felines). Below is their map and my sketches.

Should this piece sell, I will donate $100.00 to the Western North Carolina Nature Center. They are currently working to build a new veterinary clinic.

Business Time

The hardest part about being as artist is promotion. Creating art is easy. Getting people to look at it is another story. I finally got around to making business cards, which is something that should have happened a long time ago.

I’ve been leaving them everywhere and giving them to everyone. There’s no way of knowing if they’re succeeding. If you found this site due to business card, please leave a comment.

There are five hundred. I am hand drawing an individual piece of art on every one.

It is turning out to be quite the endeavor.
