Standing Your Ground DETAIL

A piece painted digitally for an upcoming web article on the In Touch Ministries site. I love the realistic feel and creaminess of the paint in ArtRage.

NAPKIN DOODLE: Leery Luke and the Larcenous Lepidoptera

January 10, 2017

At first, Ol’ Luke was suspicious of the butterfly that had so quickly and willingly come to rest on his outstretched finger. But then he chided himself for his irrational paranoia, and decided to just take pleasure in the simple things of life.

Three days later, Luke discovered that the butterfly had stolen his identity and wiped out all his bank accounts. It was then that he learned a valuable lesson: Always trust your gut instincts.

And NEVER trust an overly-friendly butterfly.

NOT A DOODLE:’Nother Portrait, or Perfect Imperfections

December 14, 2016

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not implying my painting is perfect. In fact, I think that part of the joy of painting is knowing you will NEVER be perfect, but pursuing perfection anyway.

No, the title of this post refers to the beauty of watercolor washes. No crisp, clean lines. No smooth, solid fields of color. There are always blemishes. Always unpredictable interactions with the paper. Always imperfections.

And that makes it perfect.

(By the way, this one is for the March-April 2017 issue of In Touch magazine.)

So busy with work these days, the only doodle time I can get in is when I’m either in a non-work related meeting or waiting in my car to pick up my kids. Oh, the humanity!

MEETING DOODLE: Well, at least the frog is happy.

I don’t know why the lady’s so snarly. And you’d think a rooster playing a banjo would be happier than a pig in mud.

Oh well… at least skydiving seems to be a giddy occasion for our little amphibian friend.
