Today's Project - Dolphins

More victims of the Gulf oil spill -- I think this is my subconscious attempt to make them okay.

This piece is oil pencil and pastel on grey charcoal paper, about 10 x 13". It is on eBay. As the ad explains, the scan doesn't do justice to the myriad of colors in this piece -- there are blues, purples, yellow and other hues blending to add depth and movement to the scene.

Clifford Rearing

Clifford is doing really well on his new trick, now learning to use and "strike out" with his front feet a little. We will work on a little longer "up" time as his muscles strengthen. He really enjoys doing this trick! Here are a couple of funny shots his Aunt Vickie snapped today.

Today's Project - Brown Pelican

Feeling pretty sad today about the situation in the Gulf -- so I drew this pelican as a sort of prayer for the birds and other wildlife. This is about 11x15", oil pencil, called, "To Blue Water".

Today's Project - Raven

This was a commission for someone's dad who likes to feed eggs to a raven friend. She asked for a collage and I wanted to make it sort of mystical, due to all the lore associated with the raven. This is 11x15", pastel on grey charcoal paper.

Clifford Walks for Autism

My Morgan is a kid magnet! He enjoyed the attention of a crowd at the Flushing Michigan Walk for Autism on Saturday. Clifford performed with the Classic K9 Dog Show and did his tricks for an enthusiastic audience. He spent the rest of the afternoon posing for pictures like this!
