This is something out of an old sketchbook from 1998. I did so many more sketches back then. The reference was a photo I took at a local zoo.

Real early stuff!!

This was the 1st real oil painting I had ever done. I was about 12 or maybe even younger. This is the only existing piece from my childhood. A friend of the family was a working artist, he gave me a free art lesson. This was the result. As my mom was moving I pulled this from a pile of trash she was disposing of, probably should have let her toss it.

Unfinished piece!

This oil painting was abandoned in 2003. I would like to finish it someday, but I do not think I will.

Oil painting

I am not even sure what type of duck or goose this is, but for some reason I enjoyed painting it. I really need to work on my backgrounds. this was finished around 2002 or 2003.

White Rhinoceros

I finished this piece back in the mid 90's.

This was the last piece I did. It was finished back on January 1st this year. I did a sketch of my girlfriend, it was going to be the start of my daily sketching routine. That ended the same day I started.

Bengal Tiger

This was completed back in 2006. It was painted in acrylic.

I painted this arctic wolf back in 2000


I will be posting photos of some of my artwork from years past, as the weeks go on. Also I am considering doing a daily project and thought this would be some motivation to create. I'm not to sure of my theme for my daily project but believe it will be a character a day. I am hoping to at least accomplish a year, but working a full time job six days a week may affect any daily outcome. I have been drawing all of my life, taking many art classes, with art groups, studied under a local artist for a couple of years and even had taken several evening illustration classes at a New England art school. Over the past several years, picking up a pencil has been rare. I want this blog to be my motivation!
