I've had this collage sitting around for a while, I figured it was time to finish it.  I may still darken the right side under the arm.  That will probably take me another few months though :) it's of my nephew Parker, i've drawn him a million times and I never get bored.  He's 10 now, so yeah, i've had the pic awhile it's one of my favorites.  The pic is taken with my ipod, sorry for the fuzziness :)

Sweet Sivaya

just finished a portrait for my friend.  Her girls are always such inspirations for me.  This was a fun piece, i wish the picture showed the collage work more.  I was super happy with the finished product and I hope she is as well ;)

Figure work (Rated Mature :))

Just some figures I am working on for a show.  I submitted to a show in Ohio and was promptly declined :) but you can't keep me down. . .for long.  The art world is a brutally fantastic thing.

hard to keep up!

so, i figured a blog would be a good way to keep my work posted and share what i do, but that only works if you actually update your post :) so here is what has been going on in my world.  In June I did a show at the Woodbury Art Museum entitled Art of Our Century.  It was the first show I entered out of school and I was super honored to be included among some of my favorite artists.  I was able to show two pieces, Defiant and Pensive, it was awesome because I was able to show some of my figure work, whereas before it was mostly landscape.  I was honored with an honorable mention and the museum picked Defiant as the purchase award.  I was so shocked and excited! And now they will have a picture of my lovely mug forever ;)  Anyhow, the best part of the night was probably that my sweet nephew Parker was my date, it was only fitting seeing that he was the inspiration for Pensive.  The museum even took a picture of him standing in front of it.  I was also proud that my family was there, I get a lot of support from them, even my grandpa from Idaho was there.  I can't forget my wonderful group of friends either, they are my biggest support and drive me to do great work.  Thank you, I love you all.
