Oink Oink!


Here's an illustration of a pig for a recent project. 
It's always fun painting a pig.

This is a hidden picture that I did for Highlights Hidden Pictures Lets Play series. I love drawing pigs.

Wrapping Presents


I've been doing more black and white work lately.
This was drawn with a black colored pencil (well, three, actually).

Purrs for Peace


Tom and Catrina are the Purrs for Peace Party candidates.

Mermaids

I have always had a thing about mermaids, Highlights choose an illustration off my website and had me turn it into a hidden picture. It was very fun.

Banana Moon


Moonlight on the beach. From a story titled 'Banana Moon'. I won a Highlights silver tray award for the art to this story.  It was altogether a complete delight.

Free To Paint

Since "retirement" and "painting on the beach" have come up on the list, here are a few of my paintings done on a recent trip to Block Island, RI.  Up at 6 a.m. - take a walk - become inspired - paint!  Retirement is not on my bucket list.
