Rush Hour

Felt like doing things with a bit more whimsy to them. Turtles, that seemed therapeutic enough. See more here.

Panthers Training Day Begins!

Couldn't help this one - had to do it, thought it might be yet another epic fail, but getting the reflection on these metallic painted helmets was a fun challenge!

The pencil

The final.

No time for fishin'

So while I have not had a chance to fish this summer - doesn't mean I can't paint the darn things! Here was a stab at a Tarpon, and I have never caught one of these either. Heard they're fighters and fun to reel in…well, this was one pretty fun to paint! And I didn't even have to get wet.

Depth Charge

After doing Trout Trout Trout, I have so many random lures and flies in my studio, so I tried again at painting one of the little bastards. Hooked myself two times in just getting this guy to pose just right!
