One of my very first...

crushes was on Laurence Olivier who starred in the Alfred Hitchcock movie, Rebecca. I first saw the movie when I was seven years old. It had such an affect on me that I could not stop thinking about it and had trouble falling asleep that night. The next morning I drew this picture of the cast of characters. In those days we didn't have hulu, dvds or even videos, if I had had a way to watch the movie again I might not have drawn pictures of it, trying to recapture the feeling the movie gave me.

Black Ink Monotype

I have portraits to finish, I know, but it is important to try new things. This is my first black ink monotype print. I so enjoyed working on this today in Priscilla Treacy's workshop.

Impressionistic Oils Underway

These are both fairly large at 24" x 36". I'm very pleased with both so far and will replace these photos with updates soon. The photos were taken at angles to avoid the glare from wet paint. the color on these is in my opinion much nicer and richer than you see in these photos.

16" x 20" oval canvas, will update soon.

A portrait of Jacqueline in oil 24" x 36" from 2002 I'd borrowed to do some touch up work and finally took a photo.

This portrait of Jack is not recent! It's from 2004, but when I did his brother's portrait I wanted to make some adjustments. So here he is!
