The Breath in My Lungs (from my Patreon page)

Art is the air I breath to survive.  Without it the world is dull and lifeless.  When I am tired, yet full of ideas, I get frustrated because my body denies my mind the tools to create its vision.  Lately, that is how I have been feeling.  So much art crashing upon the worn out shore of my body depositing flotsam and jetsam on my craggy coastline.

Finalized print details and I am now waiting to see the full size image.  Printer says there will be no problem doubling the size and using different paper.  When I decide I will get a quote on cost.  I really could use your support on Patreon to build up cash to purchase more proofs of the other images.  I am nearing completion of the planet project and looking forward to starting the Cheetah image.  I may also take a painting I have left unfinished for several years and bring it into the digital realm to see what I can do with it.  The painting is actually an animal scene with an arctic fox and polar bear, which should challenge my skills and show another side of my art.  Of course, there is still the bull rider project.  All said and done, there is a lot I want to work on with more always knocking.

Holy Chicken Fence Batman!!!

You are getting two posts this morning.  The first is a link to an igmur post I found on my Facebook page this morning that blew me away.  It is about a sculptor who creates larger than life sculptures of animals out of what appears to be chicken fencing.  See for yourself:

Finding Inspiration (from my Patreon page)

Please take time to browse my favorites at my deviantart page.  You can find them by following the link on the left column of this page and scrolling down on my deviantart page.  I have over 2600 examples of artwork that caught my eye from sketches to paintings and small sculptures to life-size ones.  If you work your way through the pages, you will find an amphibian tiger and a horse made out of driftwood.  You can also find great examples of comic book artistry.  These are the people who drive me to get better at what I do and sometimes make me itch to experiment.  Again, please consider rummaging through because I believe there is something for everyone including landscapes, portraits, and animals, as well as, science fiction and fantasy.

New old print added to my Devianart Gallery

 

This is an old watercolor painting I did that I recently scanned in and cleaned up in gimp, I used the wrong paper that wrinkled.  Please see my devianart page for prints.  I fixed this picture up as part of my plan for the up coming reveal.

Wandering Winter Pilgram

Finding animal prints left upon my snow covered sidewalk overnight always brings a smile to my face.  I had a visitor!  These tracks were very well preserved and I think made by one of the felines that torment my indoor cat during the summer.  I like to picture its journey along my darkened walk, stopping here to investigate some sharp sound or there for the rustle in the grass made by a nervous mouse.  The wandering pilgrim traveling the wide world looking for adventure and excitement with the brisk winter wind urging them on.  A serious demeanor etched on its furry brow.  Will you be back soon and will I know now that I swept the walk clean?
