It is that time of the year that all the trees are turning all sorts of beautiful colors. With permission from my daughter Tisha Clinkenbeard I painted a picture of their cat Blue Eyes playing in a pile of fall leaves. This is 16 x 20 on Tan Mitenes board with colored pencil.
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.
This is an 8″ x 10″ graphite commission done as a surprise for the father on Father’s Day. This is a picture taken of his newborn son holding his hand. Reference photo provided by client.
Needless to say the father was very surprised and thankful! Makes our work all the more rewarding!
It is certainly an honor to be included in Ann Kullberg’s CP Treasures IV! Over 800 entries from all over the world and only 120 entries were accepted for publication! You may purchase the book at AnnKullberg.com plus past copies of her magazine and drawing kits to get started with colored pencil!
This is a piece I worked on a few years ago using Graphite and white Conte, size is 8″x 10″ on Tan Matte Board. I found the subject very moving so I tried free hand drawing this. The work was before my Essential Tremor became bad enough to have Deep Brain Stimulation surgery. I hope you enjoy my work and make your own story.
I would like to share my latest work titled DEAR TO MY HEART because it is a picture of our female Jack Russell Abbye. She was 14 years, 7 months, and 11 days old when she crossed that rainbow bridge. This drawing is taken from when she was in her feisty, squirrel chasing days and that is how she will be remembered. Her last squirrel conquest which she was so proud of was brought to the front door of our home and proudly placed on the doormat while she proceeded to announce to us her prize and wanted us to see.
I feel very honored to be in the “Spotlight” section of Ann Kullberg’s October 2015 COLOR a colored pencil magazine! The link to the magazine is: http://annkullberg.com/collections/cp-magazine-2013-issues
