I was able to go to Mackinaw Island this weekend. I was inspired again to dig deeper into my artist self and to see things through the eyes of art. I was re-vitalized with my Michigan upbringing. I love Michigan,...I always will.

Honoring Dr. O

This is my latest drawing of Doctor O. The college that I attended honored Doc. O on founder's day and I had the privilege to do this drawing. My father presented it to him as a surprise and I'm greatly honored to be apart of his special day! Doctor Ollila is an amazing person and has been an awesome Godly example to many generations! I'm glad to have had the opportunity to be under his teaching during my college years! Thanks Dr. O!

The Boys Pencil Drawing

This drawing was a fun challenge. It really turned out great. I had fun drawing all the details to the cloth behind the boys. I did this drawing on a 11x14. You can see a definite difference in the quality of the drawing than if it were a smaller size.

I have a love for wolves! I am going to put a collection together of just wolves. The fur is a different texture that is difficult to capture fully. I am still learning.

I had some fun with my drawing and thought that I would add some texture to my rose. I added some pen outlining, and a little color. This would look for a clean looking wall hanging.

The second is a watercolor print that I made as well. Tell me what you think of them.

I love to see people smile. I love to try to capture that moment when someone has found their true love. Ben and Sarah Kilcup are wonderful friends of mine. This is an example of a Couple Portrait. A unique way to remember and be remembered.
