Rainy Day

Someone once told me when you have a creative block, figure out what you are feeling
that is causing the block, then draw what you are feeling. It been a rough couple days
lately, so that's me getting rained on :P

his wife and kids mean to him. From left to right Ally, Jason, Beth, Kynleigh,
Alyssa, Zach, and Payton. And if you didn't notice, there's a bun in the oven....ha ha!

Harmony

Gouache and Watercolor on paper.
This is one of my very own favorites so far. I'm really liking how this one
turned out. As a side note, thanks to spell check, you'd never know that i
cant spell Gouache right.

Fireworks

Gouache and Acrylic on Watercolor paper.
Had fun doing this one. I need a name for the character in this piece, he is
fun and easy to add in and will definitely show up in future pieces.

Lil Knight

Gouache on Paper.
Ive found that working with smaller paper sizes are less
intimidating. I used to get overwhelmed when doing big painting that id give up
on them half way into it. The Lil guy in this painting is inspired my son, who is 11
months old as of yesterday. I have so much fun playing with him, i build him castles
out of Mega-Blox and he tears it down like he is Godzilla. :D

Gathering

on my artwork. I've never been much of a writer, and never to good with words, i blabber
and mumble a lot :/ Anyways hey look i just wrote something. I'm going to try to write more in future post, share a little bit about myself and so on. So, Saturday is my birthday, dinner with friends and i hear one of them bout me a bottle of tequila. WEE!!!!!!!!
