Marshall Hat

This was a drawing that was originally started during the summer of 2015, but for one reason or another, I had such difficulties with that I abandoned it until I had a better solution.  After two other portraits of the same model, I was able to confidently go back and finish this piece.  It has been a year, and I have met the goal of completing the original set of portraits.  I don't believe this will be the end of this project.  It may morph into something else whether experimenting with different media, or different subject matter... who knows.  Thanks for stopping by.

Braids Complete

The piece is done.  I will need a bit of time to look at it with fresh eyes. I am glad to call this one completed.

Braids... Still going, but now showing some results.

Finally showing some results after locking myself in the studio for the weekend. Hopefully in a week or two I can get this thing completed.  Sheesh what a long road.

Braids.... still at it due to the flu

I've been down with the flu for about a week and a half now.  Finally got the strength back and cough reduced enough to work on this piece again.  The piece is starting to move now that the head dress is filling in and taking shape.  Wow, what a job this one has turned out to be.  Thanks for stopping by.

Braids... WIP, still plugging away, slowly

slowly working away on this.  Haven't applied much to it recently that shows.  Usually these pieces don't show a lot of results then all come together in a few hours.  Thanks for stopping by.

siobhan fahey drawing

It's been quite a long time since I did a scribble drawing. Recently I rediscovered an infatuated with siobhan fahey from the 80s band Shakespeare's Sister and Bananarama. Her eyes and smile have entranced me since I first saw her a long long time ago. It was good to work this up.
