Commissioned Piece

This is Charlie.

He was a good boy, and he lived a happy life. His mom told me he used to love chasing chipmunks, so my version of his grooming scarf has a chipmunk.

This drawing has been in the works for a while.

My board dropped onto the floor in the midst of the drawing and folded the paper…argh! Hoping framing and time flatten it out nicely.

Some photos from the journey and the source photo.

Sketching with the Krazines

This morning a contingent of artists met in Kenosha to sketch the tall ships. The Tall Ships Challenge started yesterday, and the ships will be here until Sunday.

The Krazines group was there, and just up the walk was a contingent from USK Chicago.

This is the bow of the Niagara. Rigging is a challenging subject! Phew!

Thanks for stopping by!
