A nice, peaceful scene of a still pond on a bright, sunny day. I punched the color up a bit and kept the composition simple. Thanks for visiting!

"Into The Forest"

A late afternoon scene in the shadows with the bright, colorful light in the sky and clouds. I am very happy with the final result. I like how all the different trees have their own character, colors and light. Has kind of an old world feel. Thanks for visiting!

"Jesus The Christ"

This is from the movie 'The Passion of the Christ" with Jim Caviezel as Jesus. I found this to be a very dramatic piece and thoroughly enjoyed creating it.

This is my first attempt at using a toned paper. The paper color is tan but it looks gray in the photo. It was quite a challenge rendering her subtle smile and captivating eyes. Thanks for visiting!


This is the character 'Tauriel' played by actress Evangeline Lilly in the movie "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug". I tried to capture the soft look in her eyes. I really enjoyed drawing this piece. Thanks for visiting!
"A Time to Rest"

I sketched this poetic piece from the warmth of my car on a cold winter day. The variety in the tree was very interesting. I used vine charcoal, which is very soft, to lay in the basic shapes, then I used my kneaded eraser to help refine the shapes. Enjoy!

A portrait of a friend done with charcoal on bristol vellum. This one was quite a challenge and is a bit overworked. But the end result is very satisfactory to me. I believe I got her likeness quite well. Thanks for visiting!
