I’M HAVING FUN


moving from one drawing table to another, switching from watercolors to pencils, to pen and ink, and to markers… it keeps the boredom blues away.  My focus is entirely on Paducah architecture for the book I hope to have ready by next fall.  To keep it interesting and lively I am letting the subject dictate the medium I use, from formal watercolor renderings to loose pen and ink drawings, black and white, and in color.

Here are a few of the first paintings and drawings in the portfolio:

Alone in Mid town...markers, pen & ink

A little bit on N. 3rd St.   markers, P&I

Slim Jin's Bar-B=Q...pastel on toned paper

The Back...P&I and markers
Bellewoeod...watecolor

These are all wonderful drawings! I like the idea of letting the subject dictate the medium. Very wise...
