Fortune Teller

I used to make these paper fortune tellers all the time in junior high.

Never Gonna Give You Up

Here’s a triptych of paintings I created based on the theme of the 2018 Works/San José member show: Infinite Memes.

Self-Portrait with Untapped

I created this sketch for a self-portrait show at the Art NXT Level / 33 Contemporary Gallery space in Chicago.

Belva Lockwood

Again, in the spirit slightly odd vintage photo captions, she was described as “famous lawyer and bicycle rider.”

Edith O’Gorman and the Language of Flowers

This 19th century photo by Matthew Brady stood out to me because it was a woman with an interesting expression and an even more interesting description: “Edith O’Gorman. Escaped nun from Canada?”

Edna and Barbara Have Coffee

This was a leisurely-to-finish painting based on an old photo that I later realized didn’t quite have enough detail in it.

Inktober week 4: George

Inktober is done, and here’s the last batch of sketches: this time it’s George, age 76.

This week in Inktober is Maddie, age 31.

For this week of Inktober I’ve been sketching Michael, 23 years old.

Inktober week 1: Roshan

I’m participating in Inktober, an annual event since 2009 that’s an excuse to practice inking. I decided to practice facial expressions as a counterpoint to my Statement series of paintings.

Lena and Manny After Dinner

The latest painting in this style & size – these are my husband’s parents Manny and Lena, from (yet another) great photo by Alan.

Barbara Makes a Wish

After painting my grandfather, I wanted to create a portrait of my grandmother in a similar vein.

Reino in Focus

Rather than using reading glasses or a magnifier, my grandfather uses these shop goggles out of habit.
