Start of a Beautiful Friendship, I Hope (from my Patreon page)

Well, I decided it was time to get off the fence about prints.  I just sent “Quiet Strength – Silent Vulnerability” off to Picture Salon for a test print at regular size to see how well it turns out.  From that I can see how to proceed and see how much it would cost for anyone interested in a print.  I will let you know the results.  If anybody knows anything good or bad about Picture Salon, I would appreciate a heads up.

Side Note:  I have not heard back from Spectrum so I am assuming that it is a no go and moving on.


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.



Cougar Oil PaintingI just wanted to remind everyone that my Deviantart page ( is a good place to see the kind of artwork you would be supporting on my Patreon page.  Also, there are many samples of earlier forms of my writing on this blog that can be found under the writing category.
