Presenting "Out of the Darkness"

Here is my latest endeavour, "Out of the Darkness, Saw-Whet Owl" "Out of the Darkness, Saw-Whet Owl" Graphite pencil, 5 x 11 I am also posting the start of a new painting. I met to post this earlier in the week but I have a really good audio book right now and its keeping me at my drawing table. I am listening to the book "World Without End" by Ken Follett. What a great story! Masterful writing. I am some what of an audio book junkie, so if you have any suggestions for a really good book please pass it on.

Back to Work

Here's a piece that I started before going to Charleston for SEWE. I actually got a little work done on it while I was down there sitting at a coffee shop across from Charleston Place called City Lights. Great atmosphere and really good coffee!

Return from SEWE

Wow, what a great time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see my work in Charleston. Selling a piece of art is great but your comments and enthusiasm about my work are what I live for. As an artist, I spend a lot of time composing my images — making the finished art feel as though you can put your hand into it — and matching up the perfect frame, and these efforts were reflected in your comments. I had several people comment on my compositions, and many of you also commented on how the frames complement the pieces. But the best compliment was from the woman who said nothing at all but kept rubbing her finger over “At Rest,” trying to feel the words on the waterwheel. Her expression said everything I needed to hear. Thank you to everyone! I want to take a quick moment out to say thank you to some others as well. I am fairly new to the national and international scene of wildlife art and with the 2007 Birds in Art and the 2008 Southeastern Wildlife Exposition I have met some great art
