Art Shows, Colored Pencil, Galleries, New APP ARTY


2018 was a difficult year because of all the challenges it brought to my life. I had another DBS brain surgery in July which has taken longer for the settings to settle in my brain. But now things are looking up. I met Matt Tommey on Facebook under Thriving Christian Artists; wonderful encouragement in seeking Christian Artists. He has written at least four books and has been to many countries preaching how we as artists can be used in God’s Kingdom! Isn’t that great!

It is an app that will enhance your Colored Pencil Experience. The colours give you a choice of Faber-Castell Polychromos, Prismacolor Premier and Caran d’Ashe Luminance. I would like to explain my experience with ARTY.

2017 Is Over With A New Beginning For 2018

I was Honored to be asked to do a Three Step mini demo in Ann Kullburg’s newest DRAW Landscapes in COLORED PENCIL. 

Ann in a very giving person! She is one artist that “Passes it forward” giving the new artists an opportunity to further their career. I have been honored to be in two of her COLOR Magazine for COLORED PENCIL and two of her  CP TREASURES and two of her CP HIDDEN TREASURES!

This is a beautiful young lady that is growing up fast, they all do that never stay small for very long. That is God’s plan to be born, loved, trained, and grow up hopefully with the moral principals taught to her by her loving family. I am personally proud of this young lady because her grandmother, my dear friend, has shared her grandchildren with me ever since the youngest boy, Tanner was born. 
We all have complex moments in our lives but I believe this young lady will make her family proud. This an 18 x 18 graphite, graphite powder, drawing on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. Permission granted by ZAP Photography.

I hope each enjoy and relate to this beautiful young lady. Have a blessed day.

This is the last of a series of paintings I did of friends and myself while we vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard together. For five years we would gather to spend a week at “the cabin” that was in the family of one of the ladies. We came from Florida, North Carolina, California, and Texas so it was quite a combination!

We had lots of fun, solved the worlds problems, and watched the World Trade Centers come crashing down on a black and white TV which changed everyone’s world in the United States of America forever.

This is 5″ x 7″ on Stonehenge paper, Polychromo, Pablo pencils. My reference.
