Works in Progress

I don't have a lot to show right now, but I am working on two new projects. The first is a pyrography of a giraffe (got a great photo at the zoo a couple weeks ago). I have the layout sketched on the wood, but I have a bad cold right now and can't work on it - burning fumes plus runny nose is not a good combination. The other project I recently started is a sketchbook. The CIAO Gallery in Wyoming is putting together their "Rocky Mountain Art Book Collection." Entrants get a small, 20-page book to do whatever they want in over about three months. They had several themes to choose from, and I chose "The Cycle of Life." On page one I drew a pregnant gorilla. The next few pages will feature some baby animals. I haven't fully thought it out, but I'm sure I'll end up with some predator/prey drawings, some dead animals, and ending with another pregnant or baby animal. I have until the beginning of January to finish it, and I'll post a few of the completed sketches as I go.

Now to get rid of this cold.

Siberian Huskies

This is a recent commission of two Siberian huskies. The one on the left is a red and white with light blue eyes, about two years old. The one on the right is a black and white with one blue eye and one brown eye. He is a few years older. This drawing is 8"x10."

Battle Wounds

The old lion is finished. That mane sure took a while! I do like pyrography but it is hard to do with the weather getting colder (meaning: closed-up house, less ventilation). I hope to get at least one more done while the weather is good. But first, I have another dog portrait commission!

Prints are available.
