Got this lovely late afternoon shot for the latest painting, part of the Statement series.
Dave is a connoisseur of bowties and has written an eBook all about them. He had this great photo for the cover, so in exchange for borrowing it for a painting, I created a few layout options for the cover.
The Statement series is mostly individuals, but this lovely pose was too good to pass up.
A friend of mine has this neat leather motorcycle jacket, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to paint a different type of material.

Time off plus a dearth of airline miles recently led us, happily, to Hawaii–the Big Island in particular. We went on a whirlwind tour of it seven &…
A couple of months ago I wanted to get some practice with portraiture, and took a bunch of photos in the somewhat dramatic lighting near the drawing table.
Today, watched women’s volleyball and men’s swimming.
It’s been a little while since I tried drawing poses from my imagination.
